“Soooooo GOOOD! BEST Fish and chips in Welly by far!”

The Mt Vic Chippery
Ranked #58 of 921 Restaurants in Wellington
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $4 - $18
Description: We believe The Chippery serves the best fish and chips and here's why... We know where our fish comes from and it's super fresh. Our fish gets landed in Wellington regularly by our very own commercial fisherman and we work with other local suppliers to ensure quality and variety year round. Our oysters come from farms in Bluff and Marlborough and are absolutely delicious! To make the best fish and chips we start with the best ingredients. We use the finest quality Wellington craft beer to make our batter. Our Agria chips are cut by hand. When it comes to our burgers, our beef patties are also made by hand using grass-fed brisket. We use free-range pork shoulder and slow roast it for 12 hours to make our pulled pork burgers the best in town. Our Free-range eggs come from Wellington and make our delicious aioli and tartare sauces. We also use only the best free-range Waitoa Chicken on our menu. We understand that some people are on a restricted diet and we offer a wide selection of gluten free dishes including a gluten free batter for our fish and seeded gluten free buns are available for our burgers. We even have a dedicated gluten free fryer; just remember to let us know which items you need cooking separately. The Chippery also offers plenty of vegetarian and vegan offerings. If you need anything special, just ask, we'd love to help. We were the first fish and chip shop to use online ordering and offer a delivery service to 14 suburbs in the central Wellington area! Welcome to the Chippery.

“Soooooo GOOOD! BEST Fish and chips in Welly by far!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I just LOVE Mt Vic chippery, i have been around 12 times and am yet to have an average or soggy fish and chip meal! They have a great selection and a more modern take on the fish and chips which is a nice breath of fresh air from other greasy slop fish shops. If you get thier takeaways make SURE you try thier pork sandwiches they are to die for! And the kumara chips and panko crumbed warehou is amazing too. Seriously, Everything is GOOD!

Darn, Now i want fish and chips for dinner ;)

“Superb F&C”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I have used this F&C a number of times, was my local. The food is very good, I have never been disappointed. Although I have tried a number of the dishes I most of the times end up with a fish burger (snapper). Its very very good and kumera chips. Its also great that you can order online - there has been a few times I have opted to go somewhere else due to a huge queue. Its hard to find a park so its better to either park nearby along Cambridge Terrace or walk if you live nearby.

“The grilled Kingfish was delicious”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

In general I'm not the biggest fish'n chips fan but this chippery is awesome. You can get your fish grilled, battered and crumbed. We ordered online and had a 30 minute wait which was quite acceptable. Our order for 4 adults and 1 toddler was three fish, different style plus large&small shoestring fries and the agria's. It was enough for all of us and no one left the table hungry.
The outstanding fish for me was the grilled Kingfish it was just perfectly grilled and seasoned. It would have been a shame to put any lemon on it.

“Kumara fries = to die for”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We ordered online (there was about a 45 min wait but we could do that from the comfort of our own place. Got a large kumara fries, small hand cut agria chips, aoli, 5 fish burgers and that was perfect for the 5 of us (2 blokes, 3 girls). More kumara fries would not have gone amiss. The fish burger was tasty with crispy fish, avo salsa and mayo and a nice size, not too big not too puny. The agria hand cut chips were really tasty. Everything was light and not greasy. The star of the show however was the kumara fries. Easily the best I've ever had. So fluffy but light and crispy without being greasy or too crunchy. SO good!
