had a pukka pie last weekend, not impressed.. Usually.. at a good chippy the pies and the fish are kept in 2 seperate compartments.. Oroklini Fish Bar does not do this and I hate to say it but my beef and onion pukka pie tasted like fish. The pastry had absorbed all the fish steam and stink and it was totally mingin'!! Threw the whole thing out. Chips were also cold this time. I only live not even 2 minutes away.. they couln't have gone cold that quick.

was not impressed my 2nd time around. Would return to Dhekelia Chippy next time.

Had pukka pie chips and peas and these were comparable to Cessac, wife said the fish wasn't as nice though.

Large battered sausage was very nice, and its only a 2 min drive away.

Will use this before cessac just because of convenience.

i've had pie and chips from there a few times now and the pies have NEVER smelt or tasted of fish, i am from north london and every chippy i have been to has had the food in the same display unit. maybe it was just the chippy you used to use. as long as they are apart from each other i dont see the problem. if the chips were cold then maybe you should mention it to the owner, i know that everytime either my self or my son have gone in there for food, there is always fresh chips cooking. i think its always a good idea to mention it in a nice manner and give people a second chance.

Lambros fish and chips have pies, sausages etc in one case and the fish all in the other. The one in Oroklini are all together which is why i'm assuming i got the horrible fish taste.. I'm not the 1st person who has complained about the "fishy" pastry. Also now that i'm posting again, the fish was totally different this past time as well.. it was more shaped like a sausage than a piece of fish last time we had it there, my fella didn't finish his at all cause he said it tasted different. I've given them quite a few chances, next time it's back to Lambros/cessac for sure. I've never had a bad one there.

you cant compare lambros to the oroklini fish bar, lambros is a much bigger shop he has more space for equiptment.
its a shame you feel like that, i for 1 will carry on getting my take away from oroklini fish bar as i have found the food very nice.
pukka pies might be procced, but that has nothing to do with the chipshop, thats just individual taste.

Friends went the other night and hated it. Guess it's just down to personal taste at the end of the day.

I think the defamatory comments about this business have gone on for far too long.
Some like the food, some don't. End of!!

After all, this is somebody's livelihood, people!!

You are absolutely right Mark!
There does not seem to have be this amount of comments, good or bad about any other establishment.

pukka pies are processed, and maybe estabishments have nothing to do with the making of the pie, but they choose to stock it and sell it. In my experience of the hospitality industry customers expect better and im sure would prefer a homemade pie.
im sure someone will correct me if i am wrong.

a perfect example in cyprus, certainly the famagusta area is the chinese restaurants, they are bad for selling jars of sauces and passing it off as there own.
you could do this at home.
