If you are looking for high quality fish and chips in the Christchurch area this is one of the best two. The fish is fresh, the oil is clean and the service is always friendly.

Popped in after a busy work day. Nice, clean, well presented fish and chip restaurant. I expect it gets busy as not many able to be seated but also has a popular takeaway. Excellent service, lovely cod and chips (one gluten free) and staff member mentioned tartar sauce had vinegar in so to be aware of this. Minimal wait time-... More

I visited this fish and chip restaurant for lunch as they cater for Coeliacs by providing gluten free batter (why haven't more fish and chip restauants cottoned on to this?) Or normal batter, or light batter, or breadcrumbs, or Thai breadcrumbs (!) or the fish simply steamed - whichever way you want your fish, they'll do it for you.The menu... More

A really first class fish and chip shop with wide range of fish, pies, sausages, etc., all offered in a range of different batters. The restaurant is small and booking (a rare feature in this type of restaurant) is essential most evenings. There is also a takeaway facility and the food is of equal quality. Most highly recommended.

Came here because of good reviews but was not blown away. Slow service and average food. Slightly soggy batter on nice cod, okay chips. On a high note, the chicken bites were very good quality.
