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.

Quality fresh fish, nice crispy batter, golden chips with good flavour, I’m not sure what oil they use, but the chips are top notch and cooked to perfection 👍🏻

This is our regular takeaway xhop which we haven't been to for a while. We ordered a couple of burgers plus chips by phone and picked them up 10 minutes later. They were absolutely the best burgers and chips I can recall having here or...anywhere else. Top food and service. Highly recommended.More

Takeaway burger and chips. Wish I had taken a pic. Best burger ever. Hawaiian. Super fresh lettuce. They keep on improving. Husband had an Egg burger. They were perfect.

The best fish and chips we’ve had since the 1990s. What a delicious dinner! There were a lot of people getting food here, it must be the go to spot for Taupō fish and chips.

Excellent fish and chips and fish cake. Fresh fish at fair prices. The fish was fresh, and the chips were not greassy. 18 meals were cooked in 30 minutes.

A disappointing meal last night. The two pieces of snapper were so tiny, literally only half a piece each! The chips were okay. Previously have been so happy.

Whenever possible if I'm in Taupo, I look for an opportunity to grab some Fish and Chips from Shaynes, its been a few years since I've had the opportunity to enjoy the pleasure but we were staying nearby recently so .................... Yep, they are still...as good as I remembered from the past. We had crumbed and battered gurnard and a spring roll and chips. Cooked to perfection, crispy and no greasy. Best F & C's! Highly recommend. (I did think the Crumbed looked better than my Battered).More

When I dropped by tonight, the wait time was 45 minutes. Fair enough, you're busy. If I was able to order online earlier in the day, or you had been answering your phone, it wouldn't be a problem. But neither of these are the case....1* only because I didn't get to eat. Decent food otherwise.More

We are regulars at Shaynes because of their good takeaways. We ordered by phone and found their hamburgers, big, and yummy, had improved a lot since our last purchase and their chips good as ever. It was a quiet Sunday evening so the service was...quick. Keep it up guys.More

Terrible service on the phone. The lady was rude and even made comments like “oh gosh” when trying to place my order. Food is normally great but very off put by this staff member.

Not sure what has happened here - this used to be a great fish and chip shop, getting worse each time now. Today greasy, not fresh fish - last time fish pieces were very small, thin and dry.

We ordered fish for adults and they were the size of kids fish! Smaller than a teaspoon. When we called we were told they were weighed 100gm... we weighed and it was no where near 100gm each. So sick and tired of ordered always being...wrong and now we are being ripped off! No more! In the end we couldn’t be bothered taking it back. We’ll go back to Catch22 on Spa Rd. By far a better fish and chip shop!More

It would seem that a change of ownership hasn’t helped. The portions have reduced in size, the chips are often greasy and over cooked and the batter is thick and unpleasant - a case of find the fish. Occasionally we’ll give the place a second...chance but there’s been no noticeable change in the quality/quantity. A number of years ago this shop was one of the best in Taupo but changes in the ownership along with ‘better’ fish and chip shops in the Taupo area (with cheaper pricing) mean that we now prefer to bypass our ‘local’ in favour of going out of our way to the others. Less soggy batter, bigger portions, less oil, decent chips that aren’t over cooked all at a reasonable price and we’ll be back.More
