Good sized burgers

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

While this is a fast food place, it does a brisk trade and all is fresh. Friends come here every week and although generally, this type of food is not my first choice, it was a worthwhile experience to satisfy hunger pains. It it also very reasonable with generous servings. We opted for fish and chips which cost $9 for... More

We were looking forward to a good feed of fish and chips and whilst passing by saw some of the food on offer and decided to take a punt on the fish and chips. By taking a punt we decided to forgo a trip to the Mangonui Fish Shop. We were disappointed to say the least. The fish was greasy... More

Ordered fish and chips plus potate fritters. The chips tasted like they had been re-heated more than once. The fish was very expensive, very greasy and just tasted terrible. The potate fritters were like rubbers. They were impossible to bite into. You could sole your shoes with thm. Took the food back and explained but the lady who attended to... More

we decided this was a place that would not get our business, since , while we were walking along the street in the evening, we heard foul and loud language coming from the restaurant. They may have been cleaning up and getting ready to close, but we thought it was offensive and not a desirable place to even try. Food... More

Only fish and chip shop in central Paihia. It ws rediculously expensive and less than average quality and slow to prepare. Staff were just teenagers. I went around the bluff to Ti beach on a later occasion and spent half the price on much nicer fish and chips.

Staff were very helpful when ordering. Can't understand why people are calling it expensive? Certainly a lot cheaper than fish and chips in the UK, and better quality! Very nice grilled fish, delicious crispy chips. Will be back.
