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.

Absolutely terrible. Got my order wrong. Asked for steak and onion roll. Got home and it was some sort of hame and cheese thing. So hungry had to try it buy went straight in the bin after 1 bite. Also ordered an expensive $4 scoop...of chips. Would be smallest scoop I've ever seen. Total rip off. Will obviously never returnMore

I purchased a takeaway meal for the family. It was very expensive and the amount of chips was abysmal - between 10-15 actual chips! I had phoned ahead -they said it would be ready in ten minutes. I gave them close on 20 minutes and...they still weren’t ready. They were overpriced and mean with the portions.More

As usual a mixed bag here. Blue cod delicated cooked, very nice. But scoops of chips are minimal and not meet any standard measure. And as for previous experience slow, casual service. Only went back because other shops closed for summer holidays.

2 Items were missing from our order. $5 get's you one scoop of chips! The young school aged girl behind counter was very rude, doesn't speak to anyone. No customer service at all. Store is also dated and very dirty.

We got Bluecod, oysters and chips here last week...what a disappointment, the food was greasy, we felt like being sick after eating it! the premises are dirty and have old menus and business cards stuck to the walls, the person on the counter needs to...be trained in public relations, absolutely no personality at all, this person would make you not want to go back to this shop. We will never go back to this shop unless the owners change. I don’t want to rate it at all, the food, service and cleanliness was all disgusting.More

Blue cod is hella expensive but tastes nice. Chips are very nicely cooked but you get about 1/4 of what you would expect. $5 chips is the equivalent of $2 any where else. Terrible customer service and the shop is very dirty and disgusting.

The Best Fish & Chips in Invercargill. We get a takeaways from here regularly and it's very good ever time. At peak times it's best to phone order, as they are so popular the time waiting could be 15 minutes or more. Simply the best.

The chips were amazing. Hot dog is average - recommend getting a battered sausage instead as its way bigger. Still a decent takeaway option.

The shop is unkept and dirty..... tatty old posters, business cards, old sellotape, messy hand written signs hanging off the shabby walls. Some from 2015. The menu is out dated and filthy. The food is disgraceful, the fish, a square frozen slab, the hotdogs are...old, dried up and stale, The donut also stale and chewy. The chips (barely a scoop) disappointing. Have some pride and clean your act up.More

Ordered via phone as reviews said great place but can be busy, on pick up they gave us wrong order which we didn’t find out til we got home, phoned them and took it back, our order was sitting in the warmer and not made...fresh - everything was over cooked, sweaty and so disappointing as wanted tasty blue cod. Can’t recommend them at all.More
