Gave this 5 stars a number of years ago, so we visited again in the expectation of similar quality. Sadly it was not to be. While the chips were great the fish was far too soggy to be able to enjoy. Must have new owners I expect?

Everyone had the same idea one wet evening having got off the ferry - go and get fish n chips. But they were organised and unflustered and the food was great!

I really wanted fish and kumara chips after a long bush walk. We had to wait quite a long time, about 20 minutes, and the food was edible but not great. Kumara fries were very soggy, fish batter was only just about cooked. Wouldn't go there again.

Went to this place based on reviews and a local shop assistant. The staff need to learn to smile and i was totally blown away when they closed the door on people waiting outside and changed the sign to closed ten minutes before their actual closing time lol. We waited for 30 mins for the food which was average at... More

I went here due to the high reviews and was served by a girl who must be 10. She was rude and treated other customers like crap. Anyway I have a fish burger everywhere I go and I am pretty sure the fish was frozen from the supermarket. Anyway was pretty average, suggest going to any of the other two... More

As experienced by other reviewers this place doesn't cope when busy. Customers entering the store may get ignored if kitchen is busy. On our visit they were not taking more orders but couldn't be bothered telling people who they could see were waiting at the counter.

Busy little fish and chipper! try the hoki bites, warehou and kumara fries - very tasty! Make sure you get in early though ad they might advertise they close at 8pm but they stop taking orders at 7.30pm.

We enjoyed our crumbed fish and kumara chips. Very busy over the Xmas break with many locals also queuing out onto the street. The staff were struggling with quick service but the wait was worth it. Good value too.

We chose this fish and chipper from the reviews here and we must have got them on a bad day. Sloppy fish and even sloppier spring rolls and really average chips 😒 $64 down the drain. Disappointing.

This was recommended to me and is it just down the road from my house I thought it would be handy. The first time I went it took a long time and the fish and chips were very average. Thought I'd try it again and that time the chips were greasy and almost inedible and the fish was marginal. Have... More
