This has to be the most expensive takeaways in the country!
It has nothing to offer for its high prices.
one piece of frozen fish and a scoop of chips is not worth $10.
A plain old hamburger $9.50
The food is not good here and is highly over priced. No wonder they can shut at 7pm.

Ordered two different types of fish as well as chips. Quality was ok but my god if there were not the smallest ever pieces of fish I've ever been served. Disappointed there was not more. Cost $16.50 for two of us. Filled up on chips instead of fish.

They also had hambugers, which my husband loved. Many if not all the food was battered and deep fried.

These were the freshest fish and oysters we have had with chips. They filleted the fish after they took our order and while just a 'take away' we were delighted to have eaten there and have it on the top of our list for when we return to Russell.

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.
