Great spot for a take away fish & chip shop as you can get your food & then go across the road & eat them on the banks of the Noosa river. Plenty of fish to choose from & all cooked well. Very popular place! The only downside is that it's a bit expensive but you do expect that in... More

This is a lovley little seafood shop on Gympie Tce in Noosaville. It may not be the cheapest but the fish tastes great.

This popular takeaway fish and chippery on Gympie Tce has a wide selection of very fresh fish. We take our own wine and glasses, plus a salad and have our meal there. Lots of chairs and tables - all looking out to the river. A very cheap and pleasant evening.

......burned.... Truly awful, greasy batter, dried crumbs and frozen chips deep fried to death.... We took interstate visitors to Red Emperor as our previous experiences with this place had been all but exceptional. Today, however, proved us terribly wrong. I do mind spending hard-earned dosh on food that I can only describe as rubbish.

Noticed this place seemed busy, I I ordered a burger with pinapple It must have been a busy night or.they prefer to cook fish and chips witch they charge like a wounded near. Most of my burger went in the bin it was that bad.
