Great Fish and Chips

It is a street side take away but with efficient and friendly service and great fish and chips. The park over the road makes for a meal with a view.

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.

Beautifully cooked and very fresh fish and chips from the takeaway, eaten on the beach. What could be better!

When you're staying in Paihia, sometimes fish and chips is exactly what you want. But this is pushing it. $7 for a piece of hoki. The other main option is "dory", same price. That's a lot to pay for each pretty average battered piece of fish. Add $4 for a scoop of chips, plus a mediocre spring roll or two,... More

Got some extremely over priced takeaways that were mediocre at best. Chips were ok but the potato fritters were inedible and $2 each! 'Deep fried cardboard'. Definitely won't go back.

We ordered fish and chips for dinner and although fish was nice and chips were good they were far too expensive for the portion size!

I had forgotten what good fish and chips had tasted like until I ate at Vinnies. It was spot on and the older, balding gentleman that served us was very charming and knowledgeable. I will be back.
