We had a simple take-away meal of fish and chips. The fish (fresh snapper) was excellent. Lightly battered and cooked to perfection. The chips were fairly standard - well cooked, crisp and not greasy. We did also try a potato scallop which appeared to be of the ready-made variety - not to the standard of the rest of the meal. It would have been nice had they included a slice of lemon, but we enjoyed the fish regardless.

Prices are very reasonable and on the night we were there, the meal was ready within 15 minutes. There are some inside and inside tables, but is more of a take-away place than a restaurant.

Our next fish and chip takeaway definitely coming from them.

We had the nz$16 blue cod fish and chips, which comes with a small salad. the fish was delicious with a light and crunchy batter, and the French fries were just right. An unpretentious place well patronized by locals. Friendly owners. Great meal!

Outstanding value... freshest fish cooked to order, eat in (at a few tables outside) or carry out. Terrific prices (for NZ:>). Good burger menu too.

I had the fish and it was good. But chips and the hot dogs wre average. I don't really know what all the fuss is about this takeaway, but it's clean Znd ok and fairly good value for money. Nice owners.

The owner is really friendly. The food is delicious, hot and delivered at top speed. The restaurant is squeaky clean. Best fish and chips I have had in a long time
