Very nice chips (as you would expect :)) and friendly staff. We didn't try the chinese dishes, but the fish and chips was good.

You can tell how popular this award-winning takeaway shop it is by the number of people waiting in the shop during dinner time. We had fish, scallops, oysters, squids and king prawn rice as our dinner. All of them taste delicious at a reasonable price! Definitely a good choice for fish and chips in the town! The only drawback is... More

You can tell how good a chippy is by the queues. Oppie's had a good queue when we were there. I only bought chips but they were good. Very good.

Fresh fish & an extensive menu for a F&C shop. Clean shop & really good food. Perfect for a cheap dine-in option or to take back to hotel while away :-) Yum!

I believe this shop to have the best fish and chips anywhere. They are always busy, a very good sign. Service is bright and friendly, and the quality is always good. Both Chinese and NZ cuisines available. My advice is to phone in your order first, otherwise it can be a long wait!!

Oppie's has won several take away prizes, I am really not sure why, the taste of my sweet and sour chicken was average and chips were below average. Service was ok, nothing to rave about. Shame it is publicised as such a gem when it is okish only.

We went and ordered takeway meals. The friend Rice and Lemon Chicken we got was amazing. We do not have the same quality at home. If it wasn't so far away would travel down there regularly to get my chinese takeaways

In our group of eight, we had both Chinese and fish'n'chips. We had to wait a while as the place was quite busy. The fish was fresh; chips were fine, cooked in fresh oil; and the Chinese meals were good, though not spectacular. All together, a very satisfying meal.

Although it has won many awards for Fish n Chips, I found it alright. However the pork crackling on rice is A MUST-TRY! Crispy skin that is just right to sink your teeth in and it does not become chewy. I want to go back for more!
