Fresh fish and chips, yummy. Took a menu just in case I wanted a return visit. They have a great selection of takeaway meals.

We were very disappointed with the quality of the food here. The walls are plastered with commendations and publicity photos and awards for the best fish and chips - why??? How can you win the best chip shop when you serve frozen McCains chips?? We ordered a selection of food; chow mein, beef in black bean sauce etc and none... More

Have been there two times. Very disappointed in the quality of the fish and chips and they were not very well cooked. Will not go back again. Best fish and chips are at the Devon Street fish shop.

The portion sizes for the Chinese food are large, however the meat (if you could call it that) was disgusting!!!! It was not meat it was pure gristle and fat!!! The only good part was all the lovely fresh veg in the dishes. This is definitely not an English standard of an award winning chippy/Chinese restaurant!!!!!!

Fish good but nothing out of ordinary. Fries better if salted instead of salt given separately. Too much cream on salad. Generous portion overall.

With a huge menu of Chinese food and various fish 'n' chip options, it can be hard to decide what to order. The Gurnard and Blue Cod were both cooked perfectly and seasoned just right! The Batter was some of the best I've come across in all NZ! Oppie's is certainly deserving of their awards and I think that the... More

The sign outside said it was the best Fish and chip shop in town. So true! And it also has the best pork belly with crackling in town! Perfect.

They have won awards and deserve them! We all thoroughly enjoyed our take away! We had visitors from the UK with us and UK fish and chips are so good so we had great expectations. Not disappointed!

After hearing great things about Oopie's we were greatly disappointed with our meal. We ordered the fried squid which was just fried octopus legs and had a funny smell to them.
