I am sadly "the fish 'n Chip Queen" of NZ. I love fish and chips...however i love quiality fish and chips. I first visited this shop in 2008, thoroughly enjoyed the meal and experiance and ticked it off my bucket list. I was excited to be returning for another memorable feed. Oh how dissapointed was I ? We had Hapuka. $6.50 for 100gram pieces. Total rip off and for oveseas visitors trust me this is not what a NZ shop would usually charge...you are been fleeced! I also ordered oysters and i believe I paid $2.80 each but i hope I'm wrong because they were the size of a 20cent piece and I initially thought they were just stray bits of (soggy) batter!! I have truely never seen such small oysters. The chips were also on the meagre side but everything was so disgustingly greasy we didnt mind as we could not have eaten them. Infact the grease went right through the paper onto the table and ...our fingers....yuck. When we entered the shop we were greeted by a very friendly hello from the male owner(?). but after that the service wasnt so friendly. The toilets were very clean and the setting is great. We did not order drinks after the meal which we had intended to do as we didnt want to give them anymore of our money! We drove 7 hours for these fish and chips and I'm so annoyed with myself for not reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and going over the road to get them! Trust me for thoses who "know" fish and chips this is not a good meal let alone a good deal. Hope they sort themselves out soon and stop resting on the laurels of the previous awards.
