Deliciously fresh fish wrapped in newspaper, nice and greasy, with tons of chips provided at a great value!

“When in NZ you need to have fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Basically your average fish and chip shop. Australians would be very familier with its fair, though some of the names will be unfamiliar. Close to the waterfront so you can wander down and sit on the beach or jetty. For a bit of nostalgia they wrap your meal in newspaper. Nice honest food at a reasonable price.

“Good Chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

The service was good, the chips and my partners toasted sandwich were really good, the crumbed fish frozen, over 6.00 for a frozen piece of crumbed fish disappointing, I have brought better in the supermarket.
