“Great fish and chips”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

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.

“Best Fish burger I've eaten in ages”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

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

“Just superb”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

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!
