“Value and quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

As a local, I noticed the tradies congregating around Mermaid's and took that as a good sign that there would be tasty, well-priced food on offer. I wasn't disappointed.

It's not a restaurant, it's a takeaway, so the Trip Advisor rating system is a wee bit wonky: I mean, it's not a dine-in experience so 'atmosphere' and 'service' are kind of irrelevant. (Having said that, this has become one of my 2 favourite takeaways and everyone's always very nice.)

I highly recommend the battered fish; big portions, good pricing, the fish is always tasty and the batter is always crisp. They have a huge range of food available, including full takeaway meals like roast with veg and gravy or curried sausages.

If you're looking for good, hearty and well-priced takeaway in the Moonah vicinity, this is the place. Bear in mind they cater to the shift workers though, so they start very early and are finished by 5pm.
