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.

This has got to be the worst fish and chips we have had in a long time. Sorry Grand Central Fry Taupo , but we didn’t even get what we ordered. The 4 gurnard morphed into 2 pieces of shark, were full of fat and...my son, said inedible! The potato and pineapple fritters were soaked in fat but on a positive note, the fries were edible. I suggest you try the bakery next door.More

Hands down the best fish and chip shop in Taupo! The service is always amazing and the food is always on point. They are well worth the drive to the other side of town. 10/10!!
