Nice fish and chips

This was recommended to us and was told (confirmed when we got there by the awards on the wall) it has meet much accolade for the finest chips. This is a large shop with more space than it knows what to do with. I was puzzled by the layout and could see it has transitioned over the years. It is... read more

Perhaps some of the best fish and chips I've had. Lovely fluffy fry batter, fresh fish and we also had Oppie's fried rice which was SO good. Especially as leftovers the next morning!

We were recommended this by our motel receptionist. Was fantastic, my son devoured his fish and chips in record time. We returned on our second night for Chinese which was equally good, was Easter Monday and was absolutely mobbed, but was served within the 20 mins they promised. Highly recommend, they deserve the awards they gave won.

I think it does mostly take-out, only saw a few tables near the window for dine-in customers. Best fish and chips I've had in my life!

Dear... but worth it & not as expensive as a restaurant. Well worth the experience if you want a quick lunch; be-it just to look at the many NZ & International celebrities whom have visited the premise & had their photo taken. Asian dishes offer variety & family pack options are a bonus! Quality food to die for!

Oppie's has a well deserved reputation as one of the best fish & chips restaurants in the region. Three types of fish are available, two of which are fresh from the sea (the salmon had been fresh frozen). Once ordered, it takes about 15 minutes to get your meal, because each meal is cooked only after an order is placed.... More

Best fish and chips takeaway had for ages ,they could teach others a few things ,maybe they could offer a few different chip options as I think people would appreciate there favourite chip type. Personally I was happy but I would think others might find them a smidgen soggy

I heard of this famous chippie/Chinese and it was at the end of the road where I was staying. Great variety. Excellent John Dory fish and chips for half the price that I would have paid at home. Freshly cooked.Well worth a visit.
