Needed some food after arriving in Rotorua late - this place had a very wide selection to cater for my diverse family. It isn't cheap by takeaway standard, but the food was the best takeaway food I've ever had, which is saying something. Next time I'm in Rotorua I'd probably get food from here again rather than going out to a restaurant - it was that good. The place is very popular though, so expect a queue.

Who would have thought that the Chinese takeaway and fish and chip shop in Rotorua would do such decent Chinese food? Chinese friends told us about this place so maybe we should have been less surprised. The first thing you notice is how popular the place is. The next thing you notice, when you're eating the food, is the absence of MSG. We paid $40 for three generous dishes sufficient to feed six of us. There are a couple of tables outside but you are more likely to have to take the food away somewhere else to eat - there is no inside space to eat. This got the tick from the Chinese in our group and that says something.

Apparently this place was voted the best fish and chip shop in Rotorua...

It was OK at best. I didn't like the chips and the scoop was very small. A bit pricey overall too. I would not go back.

We saw the signs for Oppie's Fish and Chips and thought we should give it a try. It was one of the best fish & chips we ever tasted! Eat them with Wattie's tartare sauce!

When we saw the window display that this place was the 2011 grand national winner for best chip,we thought to try it out. This restaurant is more for take away, only has 1 table at the back.
The business was very good when we were eating there that night. We tried their snapper fish and the tarakihi and they were both good. Since food price in NZ is very high, the prices for these
fish were better than other restaurants. We asked that the fish be grilled and not fried but there was extra charge. We were disappointed with the chips, not that great.
