We were not feeling overly hungry but were cold so decided to get some good old hot fish and chips. We ordered two fish and half a scoop. We were really pleased that 1/ it was less expensive than at home and 2/ we got an extra piece of fish and a really generous serving of chips which were all... read more

Sorry guys but your Toasties were overpriced with two only skinny fillings. We thought the herbal teas also were overpriced and not good value! The cups were stacked in front of us similarly to a buffet line and at the prices we paid for the tea a lot more care and presentation is desired.1 small pot $6. Maybe you feel... More

When shifting to a new location, one of the first things you do is sort out a good f and c shop. Kiwi had been recommended and, initially we had a couple of good meals. I don't know what has gone wrong but our latest, (and probably last), experience was not good. Crumbed John Dory seemed stale, hoki was almost... More

Nothing too special about this place don't order the Hoki unless you want pre frozen fish. Not too greasy which is nice bit over priced for what it was.

I was expecting much better from this place given their ranking on TA plus the fact they are located in Picton. We case the fish through staff recommendation. It was average, a bit like the batter and chips

Thought we would have tea there after reading good reviews but the blue cod was way overpriced and didnt taste that great. Bread was stale and burger was so disgusting it was thrown in bin.

Tasty burgers and even gluten free fish for my little boy & I. Fast and friendly service, everything you would want from a fish and chip shop.

On holiday from Australia we had been looking forward to have the NZ 'fush n chup' experience. So glad we waited until Picton ... Kiwi Takeaways had a crowd waiting but the service was friendly and the food was more than worth the wait. Best fish & chips EVER! Not greasy, good sized serving (not too little & not too... More

What a great bang-for-buck! For $20 we received seven large pieces of perfectly seasoned and cooked fish ( Grunyard, Takakihie, Pearlfish and Hoki). The batter was tasty, light, fluffy and perfectly crispy! We had our order to go, and ate in the car, while waiting to board the ferry.
