Yummy fish and chips!!!

This place was recommended by our tour group leader as the best fish and chips in town, so I had to check it out. He recommended the red snapper, which I had never previously had prepared fried. It was wonderful as were the chips. The environment of the restaurant is no frills. We ate at one of the... read more

Some of the best fish and chips I have had. Nice and tasty, not greasy and pineapple fritters with sugar and cinnamon. Nice friendly staff. Shop is very clean. We could not fault this place and would recommend to anyone

As an Englishman I really appreciate good fish and chips, but this place is the pits. Sorry to give a negative review, but just forget this establishment. Fish and chips are not for them.

We went to Oppie's for fish and chips on the basis of the good reviews on Tripadvisor and the fact that it is an 'award winning' restaurant. Well if this is the one that wins awards, I don't want to visit the others. This is the first fish and chip shop I have ever visited that openly advertises that it... More

Our family just wanted an easy tea to take back to motel and that's what we got. Beautiful food not expensive and very friendly service. Great selection of food. Awesome to have a fish n chip shop and Chinese in one place. Loved the food.

Every time we're through Rotorua we end up picking up takeaways from Oppies and heading to the lake or Redwoods for dinner. We've always had good portions and yummy takeaways every time. Would recommend them!

My partner and I ate here and I had the best freshest gurnard and chips ever. He however was most disappointed with his bland, unseasoned Chinese meal. Highly recommend the fish and chips A++

Oppie's has a good range of take out food. We had a mix of Chinese and fish and chips in our order. It was all well cooked with very light batter on our king prawns and hoki fish. Good portions and nice and hot. Pre-ordering would save time as it was busy when we visited.

This place is a combination of fish and chippery and Chinese take away, with quick and friendly service. We had fish and chips, it was tasty and good value. Would go there again.
