Evening takeout meal. Was really lovely and presented nicely in a tray no wrapped in newspaper which makes the food sweat. I didn't have to wait long for the food though they can get really busy there. Parking is a little difficult but that also depends on the time of the day you want your meal.

Just went there this evening. I'd phoned in an order for 7 fish and 3 chips; at $33.50 the price came out the same as ordering pizza for our family of 6.

I'd heard locals talk about this place & it took years to finally visit. True to the conversations, they offered the best fish & chips I have ever tasted, unbelievable!!! We ate them down by the riverbank as it was such a lovely day. Dining Alfresco! Well worth a stopover. Can't wait to return.

The traditional Kiwi fish and chip stop - do the takeaway and head for a riverbank parking spot to enjoy them. The best in Wanganui!

Next to cinema, went for meal after movie. Fab meal complete with tea/coffee and fresh bread & butter. Fish was absolutely fresh and beautifully cooked as were fries. Had salad, but honestly, the fish and chips were more than enough. Great value and will be going again. Restaurant, clean and fresh and has had a redo, but they have kept... More

Great fish and chips carrying on George's legacy. You can select your own fresh fish and have it crumbed or battered. Also a variety of fresh fish including bluff oysters and kina. You can ring through your order as well.

Really lovely fish and chips - a little pricey compared to other outlets thru out NZ. Sit down or take away options available.
