Good when we got in late!

This is a typical New Zealand fish and chip shop. The service was quick and the single operator on staff did a good job of keeping everyone happy. There were not many customers that night so it didn't take long. You get the 'normal' things e.g. different types of fried fish, chips, sausages... read more

You can tell a place is great to eat when there is a line and all seating is filled!! We loved the fish and chips and friendly service, we were lucky to get a seat, but my only beef would be that due to space constraints a lot of people had to take their food with them (but it is... More

Vinnie's provided a couple of great fish and chips dinners (take-away) while we were recently in lovely Paihia. The local 'Hoki' fish was excellent and with enough chips to feed a giant, the two of us were happy! Happy, firendly service too. Try it!

Nice large burgers, good value for money but a bit over priced, do need doofers to be able to eat them without the mess. Add your own salt on the chips was a nice touch

I went here for lunch and found that the $9 fish and chips was good, but the price makes sense as it is in the main street in a touristy town (ie you can get a single scoop of ice cream for more than $6 around the corner). The food was made fresh to order and it was very quick,... More

We went to Vinnies for Fish "n" Chips last night. Ordered three fish and 1 scope chips, a little over priced we thought at first. Got back to the hotel unwrapped the wrapper and discovered each piece of fish was about 30x5cm in size and a large scope of fish compared to other shops we have been too. The food... More

The quality was there just a bit over priced I felt, had the one fish and one scope for $9 at home this would be around $4, however was a good clean place so one off stop would be ok
