Delicious find in Kaikoura. Cooper's serves awesome chips and blue cod. Super fresh and very generous portions.

I used to live in Kaikoura for about 3 years. Trust me. This is the best Fish and Chips shop in town! Many options on menu, friendly staff and late open hours.

Must visit in Kaikoura if you want fish and chips. The smooth Dory was great and the staff helpful on a cold autumn night.

Loved the meals. Kids meals were more than enough for them. They tried really hard on the big meals, with extras. Service was prompt. Delicious, with the exception of the main meal chips which were a bit underdone. Kids chips were fine.
