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.

It beaks my heart to say this, but the fish and chips I had here were better than anything that I've had in Australia. The food is amazing! The staff are friendly and engaging. The turnaround times are impressive. You can't ask for more than...that...More

I asked at the tourist information center for a dedicated Fish & Chip Shop that did “proper” fresh cut chips. They directed me here! I made my order, then saw all that were being served had “frozen” bagged type chips. Total insult to ANYBODY that...likes Fish & Chips. Then it took “EONS” to get my very basic order. In the end I went back to the counter & said, can I have my drink I ordered out of the fridge please, I cannot wait any longer. Even other customers said, “Are they out catching the fish for you?” When the lady from the counter finally turned up with this very basic order, I opened it & took a quick look. Poorly cooked “frozen” type chips & very over heavily battered, what looked to be undercooked fish. Very disappointing all round. I said to the lady, “Keep the order & give it to someone else.” There was no way I was going to eat that garbage. I lost the money I paid other than for the Bunderburg Lemon & Lime, that they could not really get wrong. Complete waste of money & I have lost my faith in decent Fish & Chips in New Zealand altogether. “Frozen Chips!!!!” They should be ashamed of themselves in a dedicated Fish & Chip Shop. My advice…..Go to the Supermarket, buy a Fish & Chips TV Dinner style meal & heat it up in the microwave……It will be awful, but a MILLION times better than this place! If there is no where else available to eat than this place, get a packet of crisps from the Supermarket to keep you going until you can get something at least “reasonable” to eat. Totally avoid this place! They should apologize to their customers in advance before they serve them!More

This place cooks the fish you catch ! They charge $3/100 grams. Located on the main road and easy to find. Very friendly owner. Lovely chips and only a short wait. Our meal was served with sliced lime.

We arrived in Paihia at the start of the recent cyclone. Luckily the area didn’t get too much damage, but the power was often out or restricted and most shops were shut. Oceans kept operating with generators, good humour and great food. They also do...mean coffee with nice viewsMore

The fish and chips for a family meal were excellently prepared and tasted great. However it is not a budget conscious choice for a family.

We were a party of 4 and based upon on-line reviews, went looking for this fish and chips shop for lunch when we got into town. It is very much a take-out storefront operation but they did have 4 tables - we got one. The...snapper was excellent – lightly battered. Fries were ok. We ordered scallops, and got A scallop. It was good, but $5 for 1 scallop.?. As much as we enjoyed our food orders and the people were great, the value proposition was very poor. Unfortunate.More

Phoned in an order, had run out of snapper due to busy weekend (Labour Weekend). Ordered 1 x hoki, 1 x dory, 2 oysters, 1 battered sausage, 1 1/2 scoop chips $40.50 They threw in some slices of lemon which was nice not having to...buy one or go without. Fish and chips and how they are cooked, are matters of preference in cooking, ours were nicely cooked. Not 100% sure if hoki was fresh or out of freezer (forgot to ask if the fish was fresh) All in all a nice dinner for hungry, tired people, perhaps a bit on expensive side compared to home.More

Awesome, friendly service and great food. Took some fresh snapper fillets to the guys after a fishing trip in the Bay of Islands and they cooked them up for us on the spot. Tasted fantastic. Highly recommend!
