This establishment was strongly recommended by a few different local businesses and it did not disappoint! The fish was fresh, and the chips excellent as well, and very close to the beach. Well worth the visit

Some of the best fish and chip I have had in a long time. We had scallops and mussel fritters as well which were amazing. Would recommend to anyone that appreciates some good kai.

One of our regular "takeaway" choices. We generally have our fish fillets crumbed. Fresh fish is often available, but not always. The servings are generous and the prices are reasonable. the food is always well-cooked.

We had a very good dinner here - we ordered grilled dory, battered tarakihi, salad and chips. The fish was cooked perfectly and tasted very fresh. It was a good cheap meal for two.

The fish & chips meal is $5 and comes with one filet of fish and a generous portion of chips (photo attached). That said, they sell little containers of tartar sauce for $2 which may not hold enough for one person. Instead of buying those...More
