We looked for the Smoking Company when we came to Coromandel. First we expect a big shop with big facilities in reality the shop is very small... BUT what you can buy there is really delicious. From mussel to smoked eel to kingfish to orange roughy mackerel. Fresh smoked fish for reasonable money. Buy it and look for a shadow... More

I think that people on holiday will write more favourably about a place than if it is their day to day haunt. This place was fine, it has a lot of smoked seafood. A couple of the options were better than the others, e.g. kingfish, roe (if you eat it). I have had better salmon from the supermarket pre-packed ones,... More

Travelling around the Coromandel we made a stop here for some mussels and the smoked kingfish and orange roughy. Delicious! Smoked eel is an acquired taste... Driving around the edge of the peninsula was also gorgeous, so doubly worth the trip.

Stopped for many smoked treats from fish to prawns and scallops. Cheeses and so many choices, especially the killer chillie chips.

We stopped by on our way back to Auckland to try some of these famous smoked mussels and ended up trying all of them plus some scallops and shrimps. Great service and great smoked seafood! Will definitely suggest a stop here before venturing further in the Cormandel Peninsula.

Stumble upon this neat little shop unexpectedly. Friendly staff with lots of choices, even some with a hit of sweet chili. Prices are reasonable too. Definitely must try the smoked seafood mix, lots of seafood with that smoky after taste.

We tried a selection of smoked seafood including mussels, scallops & salmon. The scallops were perfect with a subtle smoked flavour that still allowed the scallop flavour to shine through. Cold smoked salmon was unbelievable. Also good was the Orange Roughy. Just wish we had a shop like this near where we live.

Smoked mussels, this is quite a new experience for me. Oh my goodness, they are fabulous! I could eat them all day long, and then some more! The garlic and barbecue flavours were my favourite. If only they came to my town!
