Went for a day drive to Kaikoura and felt like fish and chips. Best, freshest and we'll cooked fish and chips I've had in New Zealand. Great and friendly service to top off a yummy lunch.

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.
