We had the 'special' of 2 x pieces of fish, 2 x sausages and portion of chips. The fish and chips were excellent! Hot, crispy batter and flaky fish and nicely 'seasoned'.

This was the poorest fish and chips experiece I have ever had as the chips seemed old and overcooked, while the fish was a decent size the batter was at least 5cm thick in some parts.

This takeaway has the best value and tasting fish and chips in New Zealand. The fish was fresh, large, and well cooked with a very light batter. The chips were excellent and the price was great.

Very friendly staff, but very over priced Fish and Chips and not much for your money. Chips were dry and not nice at all. Found a little hidden place around the corner which was much nicer and cheaper.

sole staff member was friendly but very busy. Had to answer the phone, cook and serve customers. Disappointing fish that was oily and greasy and sadly the chips were overcooked. Will not be returning in a hurry

Lovely fish and chips. Hubby also caught his own fish and took it to Vinnies and they cooked it for $2 a fillet. It was yum!

Excellent service and the chap who served us was very friendly with a great sense of humour. The food was well cooked. The fish is not the cheapest we've had but very nice. Highly recommended.
