Pricier than the nearby take-away only chip shop, Starfish (which is excellent) but the fish is very good and the menu quite extensive for a chippy. They do take-away but I chose to eat in as I was killing time before going to my book...More

I give the thorndon Chippery a 110/100. They put 110% into everything they do. The chips are crispy and very delicious. The fish has a nice crispy batter and the inside just melts in your mouth.

Yes the fish is a little pricey - but is fresh and well cooked - so worth it - especially if you are craving good fish!!!! Chips - lots of variety to choose from.

My new favourite - fish, chips and slaw all amazing. Fun music, and the most amazing jalapeno poppers!

I loved how the fish was crispy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside The chips OMG I would wait in a mile long queue for a box of them.

If you're looking for over-priced, over-cooked, tiny portions of fish and arrogant service this is the place to find it! Fish portions are 120gms - which I suspect is uncooked weight which shrivels significantly when (over) cooked. The portion size is written in tiny writing...More

A great little place to eat. Had the pulled pork burger. The pork was cooked perfectly and the burger was a perfect size.

Great fish n chips and the portion was good! Love the face you could choose the type of fish, how it’s cooked, the sauce and the sides. It gets busy close to evening so best to head there early to get seats!
