Not just an ordinary fish and chip shop. Great selection of seafood. Eat in or take away. Very clean.

Excellent blue cod and chips. Very helpful staff and we enjoyed our meal. Most people seemed to use this place for take away but we are in the restaurant.

This review will be short and sweet. The best fish and chip shop in NZ. The fish (Blue Cod) was well cooked and the batter was light and not greasy. We also got New season Oysters which were well received.
