Awesome take away fish and chips. No bad oil taste here. Everything was well worth the dollars and BIG portions. No going away hungry. Friendly folks and fun atmosphere. Plus we loved the way our order was wrapped in newspaper. Thanks Boa Boa.

Would have been a 4, as they do make an effort with salads and some fresh food, but my daughter's hoki and chips was inedible. I expect the fish had been frozen but it was certainly not fresh. My burger was quite good though.

We arrived into Wanaka in the afternoon and haven't had lunch at 3pm. My friend and I were thinking of having a light snack before dinner so we ordered the Fisherman's basket with chips. It came wrapped in a big lump of newspaper (very strange for me from where I come from). When I unwrapped it the portion was SO... More

We bought fish and chips which were very reasonably priced however, the batter on the fish was very average, pale and tough. Chips were excellent though.

Thank kirklees
Management response:

Thank you for the review and feedback. We make up fresh batches of batter frequently throughout the day so perhaps there was an error, we apologize for this. We hope that you visit us again and do try the battered fish again as usually this is a favorite ! More

Just your basic fish and chips. Nothing to write home about unless you consider you are eating fish and chips in the most beautiful place on earth. We did have to wait a while for our food, I think they lost our order but once we got it the food was good.

There's a great selection here so you can choose exactly the sort of meal you are after. Just wanting a quick bite, I had grilled monkfish, Greek salad and chips. The chips were piping hot and the salad and fish were fresh.

Management response:

Hi Kabos, I am so very sorry that you found your burger spicy? It is very hard to try and understand how this could happen due to the lack of detail in your rant / review. As we are unsure of what you ordered. It is a shame your poor wife was suffering from some stomach illness. We are absolutely... More

Sadly a disappointing review for Boa Boa. We purchased two fish burgers and a chicken wrap this evening. Whilst waiting for the grub to be prepared we sat over looking the kitchen and service area and were shocked at the poor hygiene on show. There were flies all over the kitchen where boxes of uncovered salad garnish were standing. The... More

Had takeaway fish and chips and they were delicious. Thought it was a bit expensive but found each serve was actually enough for 2

Thank Vonny-Russ2001
Management response:

So glad you loved it, sadly fish is so expensive currently but with over fishing such a common problem worldwide we do think it is a precious food item and glad we are doing it justice. We look forward to your next visit! More
