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.

Whenever I'm visiting Invercargill I go to Craig's Kitchen. I also took a workmate from Auckland this month and we both loved the beer battered bluecod ($5 a piece, a bargin that you can't find in Auckland!). The bluecod is buttery and melts in your...mouth. The battered hoki ($3) a piece is also fantastic. Honestly, the fish and chip shops in Wellington are poor quality compared to Invercargill's fresh quality seafood. It's a modest establishment, so no seating but it is a fabulous traditional takeaway place. We get the fish and take it home to dress it up with fresh salad and vegetables.More

I just moved close to "craigs kitchen" my son and i decided a chhese roll and chips were a sufficiant afternoon tea after a big day, i got sushi and my son had the cheese rolls, i have to say this is the best sushi...in invercargill!!! I have been back a few times just for the sushi!! It is amazing!!! And my son rates the cheese rolls!! A visit is a must for quick service and great food!!! I suggest sushi from here is you feel like a fresh healthy lunch or dinner, or a friday fish n chip day!!! So glad i moved to waikiwi!!! But if i lived elsewhere i would travel it is that good! Well done to the hardworking owners!!More

Craig's Kitchen is located on the North Road which is on the way to the "Lakes district" in the suburb of Waikiwi just in front of the Countdown super market. it has great food! both hot and cold. he is open early in the morning...until around 8 at night. One can get of course the good old Fish & Chip meals, plus other hot food takeaways, plus you can get Sandwiches & Sushi. his Cheese Rolls are the talk of the town! Craig's Kitchen also have Burgers the best one to get is "The Craig's Burger" It can take up to 15-20 minutes for your order if you walk in from the street,The place is very clean and the service is excellent. If you are heading out of the city or staying here, this is the place to come for your takeaways in InvercargillMore

What should we write about very good Sandwiches, they are really good and fresh. Only because we are Europeans the fluffy Toast is not always a good thing, but from around NZ this Sandwiches was one from the bests in NZ.
