After waiting over 30 minutes we finally got our fish and chips. So disappointing - sweet potato chips were burnt and normal chips very soggy and not quite cooked. Fish was horrible and we ended up throwing it away.

My wife and I went to Vinnies because we had been told the food was great. Now that may well be the case, but unfortunately we didn't get the chance to taste it. I waited in line as the person in front of me placed...More

Had to wait rather a long time for my dory and chips which I found overpriced. Both needed more time to drain the grease off them. I guess Paihia is a tourist-trap so the price wasn't really a shock, but not great value for money....More

Had the fish and chips at$10and the hamburger at $9. Hamburger was very good but fish had too much batter. Ordering and receiving is a slow process as they,re busy. There’s a park across the way as this place has very little seating.
