We stopped in Russell on the way back from a slightly choppy Fullers tour so wanted to fill our tummies with some good fish and chips. This place is perfectly located and had friendly service, a good range of fish and burger options, and of course the standard size of chips was traditionally huge and had to be partially left...

I had takeaways for lunch and the curried prawns were fantastic. The scallops beautiful and the chips sublime.

Food is freshly made to order and portions are generous.Moderately priced, we can buy supper for our family of 3 adults for $43.We often have the take away option as we sit on the shore of the bay and watch all the activities on the wharf and water .Lovely! Highly recommended

Today we enjoyed the best fish & chips we've ever had. Cooked superbly the fish was battered & chips crispy. For $10 p/p it was the best prices lunch in town. The service was exceptional! You won't do better!

It will serve the purpose if you want takeaway fish and chips, but it is just OK at best. We had the Tarakihi fish, as recommended.

After 2 weeks in NZ in both North and South Island, this place has the best chips. Appropriate crispness, no tiny burnt bits, saltiness just right. I had to wait for the chips even though I could see that it was cooked and sitting in the basket over the fryer. Worth the wait. We ate every chip, nothing left for... More

Burger made better than mums. Thick pattie with wonderful flavours. I added a portion lovely fries, but couldnt eat all the food. Was a large portion. Definitely value for money.
