Five Of The Best And Affordable Takeaways In Cardiff

Jasmyne Jeffery April 20, 2022

Cardiff is full of great takeaways, so it’s tricky to find the best ones. So, here’s are five of the best takeaways, tried and tested, guaranteed to make you want more.

Although you’ll find a Maccies, a Greggs or a Subway easily in Cardiff, that’s not the same as a good old fashioned takeaway. One of the first places to go is Chippy Lane.

Chippy Lane

Right in the city centre, Chippy Lane (or Caroline St to the non-locals), is bustling with takeaways. Kebabs, pizzas, fish and chips – there’s something for whatever you fancy. Open until the early hours, it’s perfect for a post-club snack or pre-rugby stomach-filler.


One of the most notable is takeaways in Chippy Lane Dorothy’s Fish Bar. One of the first takeaways to open on Chippy Lane, Dorothy’s is a family business, with the current owner taking over from his father-in-law. Always drawing in crowds with their famous chicken-off-the-bone curry, you’d be a fool to miss out.

Albany Fish Bar

Dorothy’s is delicious, but a little far-on-foot for it to still be warm by the time I get home. If you live near Albany Road, then you’ve got to take a trip to Albany Fish Bar. Their value for money is unbelievable; getting a full meal for two for under £10, you really can’t go wrong. Incredibly tasty and cheap, it’s perfect for a student’s budget.

Gourmet Kitchen

I’m not a fan of phone calls, so the fact that Gourmet Kitchen has its own app is a big bonus for me. Plus, if you spend certain amounts then you get prawn crackers and spring rolls for free. With big tasty portions enough to cover lunch the next day too, these guys are my go-to for a Chinese takeaway.


I don’t usually go for an Indian takeaway, but I’ve heard great things about Katiwok on Crwys road. With raving reviews about its affordability, taste and customer service, you can’t go wrong. Their food is available to eat in or takeaway, and there’s an adult and kids menu on their website. Katiwok is a great option for whatever you’ve got planned.
