Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Maybe I caught this place on a bad day but I ordered fish, just fish. I was charged $9:50... obviously I thought, this will be amazing! That cost for a piece of fish. He tells me it'll be 20 minutes wait. When it eventually turned...up, the guy was quite rude as he handed me over a small box, i've attached a picture of here... it was disgusting, wet, small bit of fish... The worst.More

I've always raved about the food and service I receive here, the staff are always lovely and the foods incredible. You get good value for money compared to some other takeaways too which is awesome. Toasted sandwiches are my favourite, I won't go anywhere else...for one!!More

Consistently the freshest most satisfying servings. So worthwhile driving 30 minutes for such an honest treat. Choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Views of the bay, people strolling the waterside walkway. There are also other gems and views within walking distance. Loveliest staff as well...who genuinely make you feel important. Money always well spent with high returns xoMore

Well overpriced for the size and quality of the fish and the chips weren't flash either. Only went here after hearing the other Fish n Chip shop over the water is over rated.

The meals were great and the service was prompt . Most customers who have experienced delays might well have been there during a long week end or some other holiday and as its really the only game in town they can get super busy. Saying...this as a local . Have had many meals at Fresh and Tasty and none were duds.More

Very tasty fish and chips in the middle of Mangonui. Large portions. Make sure to visit the hotel next door (that's where the toilets are). There is a large parrot there, entertaining the patrons of the bar.

Ok a little expensive but much cheaper and nicer than the World famous one in town which I won't go back too because they charge like a wounded bull.. This place also gives gold card holders a small discount. Over all the best in town.

We called in to order fish and chips on a Wednesday night for eight people and were told our wait would be 40min but this turned out to be an hour and fifteen minutes so be prepared for a wait This I feel is totally...unacceptable Once we got our food it was very good but quite small portions of fish for the price Have given it three stars for the quality but that is the only positive Would not go back as the wait and size of the food is just not good enoughMore

The thing we love about this takeaways is that you can order and head next door to the Mangonui Hotel for a glass of wine, and they will deliver your food in a gorgeous box to you. The presentation adds to the fact that the...gurnard is always delicious, the chips great and the vege burgers have delicious patties. It's a great night out, and these are the best takeaways in Mangonui hands down. Have enjoyed many times and will keep enjoying as the best fish n chips in Far North as long as we can!More

We came here for a takeaway. The burger and toasted sandwich we had were pretty good. The chips not so much considering it was crazy busy and an easy 20 min wait. I would have thought the chips should be fresh but they tasted as...though they had been there a while. In saying that the people were lovely and you can zip to the pub to have a beer while you wait. I would come back.More

We came with such high expectation and left with a bitter taste in our mouth. We waited over an hour for our food, while other people who had ordered before us received there food. When we got our food the fish was dry, the chips...were soggy. Absolute rubbish. We will not be back.More

Extremely disappointed!! Over priced, tasteless and tiny. The picture is of a $6 piece of hoki and $5 of chips. The chips had no salt and were tasteless and the fish was no more than 2-3 bites.

Despite the TripAdvisor certificate of excellence, we had a poor experience here. Both the snapper and chips very overcooked. Fish was very dry. There were plenty of people in the kitchen but the wait was still quite long. Maybe a case of "too many cooks..."....I think both places in town are overrated. So, if you are thinking you want fish and chips in Mangonui then maybe think again. A shame really because there's nothing g better than having really good fish and chips by the seaside. Hopefully just an off day?More

There is a reason that the locals go here, rather than the other "tourist trap". Same great fresh fish, good value for money and wonderful friendly staff without the "attitude".
