It was so enjoyable just sitting on the waterfront at Russell eating our fish and chips from Crusty Crab Takeaway. There is such a pleasant ambience sitting by the sea and opening up your fish and chips which has been wrapped in plain paper then in newspaper. The fish was light and fresh and as well as the usual chips we had some kumara chips which made a nice change.

For $10, it was an impressively big, but not un-finishable fish burger with beautiful fresh fish in perfect crispy batter. Outstanding

We've had quite a few fish and chips in the past 3 weeks while travelling around NZ but these guys rock. Great quick service when they were busy; the most gorgeous hot soft fresh fish wrapped in newspaper. Our Australian friends were bowled over. Great place to grab a bite and sit on the beach front sharing amongst the kids etc.

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

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.
