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.

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

If you're looking for a take away diner this place offer nice pizzas, you will have to wait about ~25minutes but it worth it. Price for pizzas are correct for the quality but still $40 for 2 pizza without drinks.

Is this place may be called "Union Take Away"? We could not find name. My husband had Ocean Trout burger and I had Ocean Trout Fish & Chip. Trout was grilled and so fresh. Compared to other venue near by this place is the best value for money eating place. There are tables for people to eat inside at the... More

This venue supplied your food within 20-25 mins. Other venues you were waiting 40-50 mins for food. Excellent seafood.

We only had 10 prawns from Schwoch in Strahan, served with lemon and an accompanying sauce, but loved the honesty & simplicity of this place. They weren't local prawns but they were huge, tasty and good value. All the other seafood on the menu looked good, and loads of people were waiting for orders, both eat-in and takeaways. They specialise... More
