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.

My fave chippie! Their chips are always reliably well cooked and so flavourful. Whatever oil they use gently infuses the whole chip. Perfect crunch/softness ratio.

Passing through Taupo and enjoyed the full experience. Great fresh crumbed Gurnard and crispy chips. Ate on site with paper plate and serviettes provided. Couldnt fault food, service or parking. New owners going the extra mile.

Worst fish and chips ever. Went to order and half of what we wanted to order wasn’t available (no burgers, curry or spring rolls), standard fish and chip fare. Was still waiting as people who had ordered after me got their orders. Worse was the...soggy, undercooked chips. I ordered 4 scoops at a cost of $18 but was probably the equivalent of 2 scoops from any other shop. Definitely wouldn’t recommend to anyone and won’t be going back EVER!!!!!More

$20 (allegedly 4 scoops) worth of chips - that would be reasonably considered 2 scoops anywhere else. Don’t go here! What a ripoff, and not very good quality at all.

Wow, delicious food. The only thing to exceed the food was the service. I haven't experience such amazing service in a long time.

Sorry guys. But worst pizza I have ever had. Should have gone back to say something. But most of this ended up in bin. Greasy. Patchy crust and that sauce!!!! Chips are great from past. But this is an epic fail. Not worth $18.00

We only went to Catch 22 due to other fish n chip places shut during lockdown as there is 4 fish n chip shops that r closer to where we live. In Taupo. We continue to go to Catch 22 as they simply have great...fish n chips! Very good quality and also quantity. Recommend the snapper and chips. Taupo’s best fish n chips we think!More

We stopped in Taupo for dinner, halfway through a 8 hour drive, decided to look for fish n chips and found Catch 22 on trip advisor. The is the best Fish n Chips and I have had - fresh snapper - light and crisp batter...(not greasy) great kumara chips, home made chicken nuggets and the burgers were second to none (on par with the White Lady’s burgers in down town Auckland) - highly recommend the Hawaiian burger - fresh ingredients and plenty of it, all in a fresh ciabatta bun which included bacon and a homemade beef pattie. Definitely stopping whenever I go through Taupo - well done team - spread the wordMore

We ordered by phone. Asked what the fish was and told Hoki. When we arrived to pick up we found other fish was also available. Why didn’t they tell us? Once we opened our order down by the lake two things were missing from it....The fish and chips were good. The hamburgers were horrible. Swimming in too much tomato sauce. Not good service at all.More

Great fish, and beautiful chips! Very nice treat on a busy day :) and they actually put sugar on their pineapple rings ... totally worth going just for that!
