Fish and chips here are delicious and doesn't taste greasy. Even 1 serving of chips is A huge portion (for me anyway, others may disagree). Love the chicken salt added to the chips. Price is comparable to other fish and chip places around Palmerston.

Definitely will not buy food from here again. Tiny portion of chips despite asking for enough for 4 people. All food tasted horrible. Asked for chicken nuggets and they gave me 1 chicken nugget! Yes that's right 1 chicken nugget! Took them 25 minutes to prepare this awful meal.

These guys have a great operation going. Efficient service. Great burgers, yiros, fish and chips. Their potato cakes are yummy. Their hero dish is chips and a tub of gravy.

A little hidden away, but a reasonable price and good value. The chips were perfect, one piece of fish (out of 5) a little overcooked, so not sure what happened there.
