“Great Fish and Chips”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Again a special trip over from Paihia to have Fish and Chips on the Russell waterfront from this excellent takeaway Fish and Chip shop.8 of us 3 generations and everyone enjoyed it so much that we got off the Cruise 2 nights later and did a return visit.3 of the grandchildren had toasted sandwiches----another a hot dog and the rest fish and chips-----all fresh-----good service and good value.Recommend to all.

“F & Chips”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

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)

“Almost British!”
Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

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!

Reviewed January 22, 2014

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)
