Crusty Crab is an awesome takeaway shop!! The fish is divine and very tasty. Plenty of chips(not soaked in fat), and well worth a visit. We took our fish & chips and burgers to the beach just down the road and it was so delicious, I'll be going back there for sure! I guess the only negative would be the... More

Bit pricey for the burgers but they were the best we've ever had. It was a busy place which is always a good sign.

We had the Tarakihi with Kumura Chips and it was delicious. The fish was perfectly cooked, as well as the chips. Perfect place to have your lunch while you're in Russell

Really very good. The hell-hole burger (chicken) is great. The fish and chips just as good as the front restaurants at a fraction of the price. Take it away to sit at the beach and feed chips to the gulls. They love it!

We grabed some fish and chips and scallops from this takeaway fish and chip shop. OMG the scallops where the best I've ever had anywhere. We sat on grass near the waters edge and had a delicious meal.

We ordered food for 3, a little mean with the portion of chips. Burgers were pretty good. Heard the microwave ping a little too often. Appeared to be well used by locals.
