The Fish was cooked to perfection in a thin crunchy batter. Chips were nice and crisp. All 6 of us agreed.

Well after asking for a hotdog on a stick, and getting confirmation that this could be done with a sausage, (not sav), it wasn't on a stick. Batter didn't much stick either, so not really a battered sausage. Sorry to say, but discustingly fatty sausages. My chickens got those. Not going back again in any hurry.

Crispy batter, decent sized portions, fresh fish, reasonably priced; the only thing missing is home made chips!

Always fresh, generous portions, great flavor, good take out, a few tables and chairs outside, tricky to get in and out of the parking lot, but worth it.

We were on holiday in Nelson and had been recommended this place. We walked past it a couple of times but there was no sign of any opening hours - just a poster advertising a circus! Anyway I drove down one evening and arrived at 2010 to get some fish & chips and lo and behold it was closed. Someone... More

I have to say when we arrived in Nelson in November 2011 we found this to be the best Fish and Chip shop we'd been to in years. After several visits, we were hooked, but lately have found it decreasing in quality and value. The fish is still pretty good (would be hard not to with the location and contacts... More

Went there last night and with new owners, the fish and chips are back to being the best you can get. The Blue cod was cooked perfectly and the chips were well cooked and crispy. Quick and friendly service always best to ring ahead as it's so busy. Can't fault them. Great views of Nelson harbour and sunsets over the... More

Quite simply the fish here is delicious and fresh and well cooked. The difference between their warehou and most fish at a fish and chips shop in New Zealand is the difference between night and day. It was so good that we abandoned our plans for dinner at a seafood restaurant and had a second go here! The fish changes... More

Long term customer of this fish and chip shop and we always drive a distance to collect these. The chip portions seem to be getting a lot smaller recently. Are potatoes really that expensive? The fish is always good but would ask the current owners to keep up the chip portion sizes. Great location.
