Time Out says

Coburg’s industrial streets are an unlikely location for a fish and chip shop, though the grim concrete view doesn’t deter the crowds, who have good reasons for their loyalty to Blu. The bright, split-level space bustles with tradies grabbing fish burgers, couples cooing over grilled prawns and families sharing gargantuan oval platters laden with fried things. The fried fish tastes fresh and is armoured in a thick, golden batter with reinforcements from crisp and bountiful chips. You definitely want to add a few calamari rings – these supersized beauties are big enough to lasso a shark.  From the griller, a blushing-pink salmo­­n fillet is bang on medium rare and pairs beautifully with a pear and rocket salad. Maybe the one-stop-shop element is what ensure the crowds unwavering support. All appetites are catered for, from the humble souvlaki to a luxe supper of cray fish and Moreton bay bugs.
