Great Fish and Chips

We loved the little fish and chip shop, it served quality food and reasonable prices, The staff were friendly. There is a dining room , great for the cold and wet days. Very popular so get there early.

We went here on our first night in Strahan and returned again the next night simply because the food was so good. Take away or dine in. Friendly staff and good value. Recommend the pizzas, chicken burger (huge and free range) and the salmon and chips (fresh and beautiful-it's on the board as ocean trout but that was not available).

On a cold, wet Saturday evening, we arrived early for dinner at Union Takeaway, which specialises in fish, chips and pizza - takeaway mainly, but there is a room with plastic chairs and tables, wine glasses, plastic cutlery, and water, and one is free to BYOG and eat there if a table is free. We ordered two pizzas – a... More

Good pizza, on time, good service. We didn't eat on site, but it looked clean and family-friendly. Definitely recommended if you need a quiet night away from the pubs and restaurants.

We visited this friendly chip shop in Strahan, and weren't disappointed. The fish products weren't badly priced, and pizzas are worth trying. We had a prawn pack with chips and a vegetarian pizza. The chips and breaded prawns were cooked from frozen, but were still delicious. The pizza was also great, with pumpkin, feta, pesto and tomato, freshly made in... More

Advertising fish n chips was very disappointed to receive (bad) chips from a packet barely cooked and a very flavourless version of the famous tassie scallop pie. Sorry didn't quite cut it.

Pretty much nowhere else worth eating as far as I can tell. Grab some red wine and eat in the informal environment. Much of the Strahan restaurants are unspeakably bad. Unless you like pub food and buffets. It seems to be called Union now ?

Order a simple 2 x flake and chips (with chicken salt) with a chicken burger. Got back to our room and had chips but no flake grilled fish, and had all season salt not chicken salt. And had 5 dim sims not a chicken burger. It wasn't the wrong order it had its on number etc, just wasn't read properly... More

We visit Strahan on a family holiday and had fish & chips one night for dinner. It was VERY busy! We had to wait quite some time for the food but it tasted really nice. It wasn't soggy and the chips tasted great. I heard another person commenting on how great the pizzas are and the pizza menu did look... More

The fisherman's basket comprised entirely of frozen packet crumbed and battered "seafood" cooked in old oil. So disappointed! Goodness knows who took the main photo for this place, you definitely can't get a seafood platter like that there! Maybe it's changed as it's now the union (or some such, as noted in a recent review). Sadly there's little else in... More
