Awesome fish and chips

Great quality fish and chips, better variety of fish than what we're used to in Wellington. Came highly recommended and did not disappoint.

We have tried most of the chip shops in Napier & this place has the most consistently good fish & chips. You can get the fish battered or crumbled & they offer a good selection of other food. The downside is that there is usually a queue so pre order by telephone if you can.

We enjoyed our dinner here. We met some friendly locals and enjoyed dining in this neighborhood place. The food was very good and a good value! Service was quick and friendly.

This is a place that sells quality fish and chips, which are well cooked and presented. They have a BYO policy (but I think that might be common in NZ). The prices are very reasonable, and the staff helpful and efficient.

We went here especially and it was worth the drive from Napier central. Very tasty fresh fish. Not the cheapest but well worth it. We took ours to the beach a block away and sat in the park with it. Recommended

Quite a long queue but this speaks for the quality of the food! Enjoyed lovely Hoki, chips and even managed to get some mushy peas! Food was freshly cooked and very tasty!

The best fish and chips we have had for a long time. A good selection of takeaway foods but with a predominance of fish. We had crumbed gurnard (a bit more expensive but worthwhile). A pleasant evening eating it on the beach at Westshore.

We had heard about it so sought it out. Not disappointed! Non-greasy, crisp crumbs, fat fish slices, crunchy chips with soft middles. Yummmm! We sat on the seashore. We munched and enjoyed every mouthful. We knew we had found the best!
