“Best fish and chips in Wellington”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Conveniently placed on Cuba Street, it is, in my opinion, one of the best fish and chip shops in Wellington. The burgers are pretty great as well!

“Great fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

This place has great fish and chips - possibly some of the freshest in Wgtn as they sell fresh fish there too. It is quite pricey but if you want a good fish and chip experience in central wellington, there's really no competition that I've discovered!

“Great Fish and Chip Restaurant, and fresh fish shop as well”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

My partner always wants to go here for an oyster dinner which we eat in the crowded and very cold and very basic few tables they have opposite the fresh fish cabinet. The lady who runs it shouts out loud to the people to come and pick up there orders. Its rough mate. But charming, fun and excellent food. I love fish, and the fish dinners are great. Dont go there, because its too popular already and we dont want too many more people finding out about it.

“Grumpy but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

This outfit seems to have sold "grumpy" as their signature style. It works though. Its probably the best place to get a standard fish and chip takeaway, and they sell good fresh fish.

“Good value shark & tattie”

Quality fish used, not too greasy, so you don't feel ill afterwards like some other establishments
