“As good as you can hope for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We have been regular patrons for the better part of the last year and can honestly reccomend this take aways shop to anyone looking for their fish & chips or european takeaways fix. The service is consistently friendly, there are lemons and sauce in store for customers, the chips are crunchy and well cooked and I love the crispy squid, the crumbed snapper and the cheese burgers in particular. To top it off they are about a one minute walk away from the beach and plenty of parking near by. They can get quite busy at peak dinner time so worth calling up and placing your order if you are in a hurry, otherwise it is pleasant enough to wait in the local vicinity.

“Good fish and chips & good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

We were staying in Orewa for just one night on stopover to Auckland.
Not a restaurant, a take away with good selection of fish etc.
We were so lucky to find Kippers for a take away supper.
The fish and chips were really good and very good value.
Good location, nice friendly staff.

“Tasty, quick and at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We've been there this January and had a snapper and another Fish (2 Fish and 1 chips). Together it came to 18NZD and I should say that the Fish is delicious and Chips are awesome.
Don't expect a fancy restaurant, it's more of a take away than a dine in.
They don't serve beer or any other type of alcohol.
The restrooms are in the back side of the building, you can ask for a key from the lady at the counter.
Don't buy any tomato souse, it's available on the table. (go for the Tartar souse they have, it's good)

“Good value fish & chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We stopped for a bite to eat in the evening while staying in the area. The deep fried snapper and chips was very tasty and good value at NZ$6.50 per portion. Excellent location right opposite the beach, great for an evening stroll.

“Rubbish Mushy Peas”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Fish excellent, rubbish mushy peas, blended to a sauce with not a pea in sight and not a pleasant taste.
