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.

Close to 30 meals a year from the Fish Hook and never disappointed. Principally fish meals generous, beautifully cooked including chips, scallops & fab salad. Never disappointed & such value.

I asked the lady 3 times, " is the blue cod fresh or frozen". She said "fresh, not frozen". The lady said, "very fresh". It did not even taste like blue cod. It was a frozen red cod. Fish was uncooked and sticky flour over...it. The most horrible fish n chips I have ever had.More

We bought a piece of gurnard and a piece of blue cod plus a scoop of chips. They were all packed in the same takeaway container inside a paper-bag. Arriving back at our motel we could not figure which piece was which fish. Could have...indicated to us before we left (e.g. the cod is next to the wedge of lemon). Small portions of tasty fish. For the price paid, not good value.More

Visited after many great recommendations. The Pad thai was very good - beef plentiful & juicy. The blue cod portions were small - mean - and not value for money. Woild return for the Thai food takeaways.

Loved the food, the reasonable prices, and the funky interior design. We were looking for something quick and easy, and we came to the right place. The seafood was delicious and the pertions were generous. Came in hungry and left fully satisfied.

We were both a bit disappointed with the Fish Hook. The advertising led one to believe this is a seafood restaurant and although they do have sea food it really is the type of fare you would expect from a normal fish and chip shop...just much more expensiveMore

We go to Fish Hook for a takeaway at least once a fortnight - sometimes we eat in. Every time we go the food is always delicious, flavoursome and the prices are great. The staff/owners are lovely! Guarantee - you will never be disappointed :)

I was delighted that the meal was served within minutes. Even better the Thai was tasty and affordable. The staff were very helpful, even willingly providing handwritten receipt when asked. Bonus - quiet and licensed

Service was really good, but the fish was ruined by the awful taste of old oil. The frier oil needs changing.

We really like your fish and chips - freshly cooked fish and great chips. But, we tried the Thai food tonight and I'm not sure if you were trying to "bland" it for kiwi tastes, but we found it very uninspiring. Not much flavour at...all. We usually love Thai food but this was quite bland. Please cook the food the way I'm sure you cook it for yourself with great Thai flavours. We had the chicken pad thai and tofu, veges and oyster sauce.More

Be careful of the female lady of Asian ethnicity whom works on the counter. I’m sure it’s fraud, she’ll overprice your meal without you realising. Instant $10 profit. Has happened 4 times now. Watch out!

As the name might suggest it's a fish and chips place, it do sell pretty good Thai food for a pretty good price for lunch. Especially if you're a student this place offers good 10 dollar meals for lunch. The mild spiciness is too mild...for me so if you want more spice go for medium at least I think. The people running the business here are Thai as well so I would say it's quite authentic for Thai food.More
