I'd have liked a button that said Good as I'd rate this between Average and Very good.
Basic fish and chips though nothing to dislike, popped in when too lazy to go back to the motel and cook. Everything we have come to expect of NZ seaside chippies. (UK chip shop owners need to do a training visit to NZ to learn how to do it without ripping people off)

We were having a day out in Russell, having taken the ferry from Paihai. So sunny - like England at its best. Good beach - like England at its best. Fish and chips at the Crusty Crab - almost like England at its best. No cod (of course), but Terakihi (pronounced almost like 'turkey'). 2 terakihi, 3 Hawaiian burgers, 2 twisted prawns and 2 large chips - $NZ54 = £27 for 2 grandparents, mum and 3 grandchildren. Great value. Everybody happy. Had to wait more than 20 minutes when told 10. But we'd go there again. Probably will!

No frills takeaway but very tasty and freshly cooked fish and chips. Generous portions as well. Limited seating outside the shop. Our plans to sit on the beach to enjoy these were thwarted by a sudden downpour!!! (Still tasted great though)
