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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The chips were great but the white bait was hard and chewy in the fat pattie. They tasted like the white bait had been dehydrated. Quite strange, very very disappointing.

This was a real find on our recent trip to Invercagrill. The fish was fresh, the crumb coating crispy, and the chips were plentiful and crunchy. Only slight niggle was the battered Bluff oysters; a bit flabby and greasy, but I'd probably order them again...in case it was just an off-night.More

Twice the website said “open” and they weren’t. Today, after having had 3 previous disappointing meals (giving the benefit of the doubt AND before that, for years, had been the best fish and chips) - the chips were cooked in not-hot-enough-oil - actually sodden and...oozing fat when as you bite into it AND considerably less than “a scoop” used to be. The disappointments keep increasing...having given them a number of opportunities in recent months, we’ll be going elsewhere.More

We ordered blue cod, chips (these were good) and 6 oysters at $2.95 each, 1 was only batter, 1 was a small fish bite and the others were a thumbnail sized oyster - really disappointing and shocked this was served considering what they are charging.

Very friendly staff. Reasonable prices. My husband got the fish and chips. I got grilled salmon with one fried blue cod fillet. Both tasted great. Highly recommend if you are looking for great take-away seafood.

Usually great. Today oysters were all undercooked on the outside and chips were awful all soggy not crispy at all. If fat wasn’t hot enough you should wait. Not impressed with the price paid for the quality received

The fresh and frozen fish choices are amazing and well priced, to be able to take various things away to your home for later. Try the smoked and chilli flavoured salmon wings, mmmmmmmm!!! Get your Fish & Chips, and take them out to Oreti Beach...(about 10 mins away) or sit near the Sea Scout Hut a few minutes away and observe the inner lagoon (west). The only ever caution here, can be a moody staff member not being helpful, but the food is beyond that and worth any wait. Easy street parking. Any accompaniments can be found around the corner at Pak n Save.More
