“Probably the best fish in chips i've had”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Right by the ocean, probably the best fish and chips I've had in my life. If you want you can catch your own fish and they will cook it for you as well. The fish was fresh, and the chips were just right, it would be nice though if it wasn't only take away and you could sit and eat there

“Good but a little pricey”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Very fresh and tasty, and the lady serving was was extremely friendly despite being really busy. A little on the pricey side, but maybe because they are the only fish and chip place in town (from what we saw!). They also batter and cook your catch for $2 a fillet which is nice.

Reviewed May 11, 2013

So good. The fish (whiting) and chips is superb and the friendly service with seating looking over the bay is a must. So good we went back twice more!!!

“Good Value for Money”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Good price, great portion sizes (a lot of food). Unfortunately had to pay for tomato sauce, which is not uncommon in this part of the world.

“A typical fish & chip shop”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I ordered chicken and chips and a couple of bottles of fanta from here one evening on my stay in Paihia.

We waited around 20 minutes for the chicken to be cooked.

Once I received the meal the portion size was good, the food was tasty and was reasonably priced.
