“Great Family Pack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

Public holiday one of only a few restaurants open in the area.
Ordered the family pack and was served in a large basket plenty for 2 adults and 3 kids. Then they bought out the separate fish on a couple of plates.
Enough left over for a snack the following day

“The best Fish in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

Found Hunky Dory whilst staying nearby. The food and staff were excellent.

Consistency, vibrant and the best fish in town.

It's casual and if you ring ahead, can place your order so it's ready when you get there.

Will keep going back whilst in Melbourne.

“Fantastic food in an upscale looking fish&chip shop and for good price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2011

Went pass this fish & chip shop in South Melbourne (different branch than the Chapel street) and got attracted by the decor - modern and cool with seating outside. The menu looked great with very good prices and the food coming out of the kitchen looked fantastic. The best thing is that unlike other fish&chip places, this one has great selection of salads (medium size plate for 5 AUD). The fish was beautifully done, all the seafood was fresh and chips were wonderful. The only downside was the tartar sauce, but at least it was served in a grand way (in a scallop shell instead of a standard plastic cup).

Will definitely remember this place and come back again.
