Just moved to the neighbourhood and been here a few times now, the food is good, however, at first I found the staff to be stand offish and rude and thought it was an isolated incident but these attitudes apare consistant, given the relatively high...price and customer experience I would recommend as a last resort option.More

We had our first takeaway for weeks. What a disappointment. We ordered 2 pizza as we usually do. Service was good under lockdown. But the chicken and brie pizza was horrible, with grey, strong tasting chicken. The Italian was so greasy it was dripping as...we ate it. Not sure what happened, but I don't think we'll be back.More

Friendly staff. The blue cod and chips we ordered were cooked to perfection. We will happily be back for more!

We were a bit late ordering but were told we could still order fish and chips but not pizza or burgers. That was fine, so I put in order. When we returned the two young girls working there smirked at each other when we came...back to pick up order. Not friendly at all. Won’t be back.More

We are locals and have tried many of the fish and chips shops in Nelson this is by far the best. The chips are golden not brown like you get when they don’t change the oil in the fryer often enough - we always order...the gurnard and chips the portion is generous and the price reasonable - they have pizza, salads, and burgers - we usually just go for the great fish n chips. The place has easy parking out front - in summer you can get takeaway and go across street and hike to Center ofNZ to enjoy your food with a view!More

Decided to get fish and chips from the Milton Street the other day and had them on the table up at Walters Bluff in the sun.The food was well cooked,the scallops were a good size, the mussels were ok,the fish was a bit dry,,but the...chips were real good.The first fish-chips shop that I have seen the owner check the temperature of the scallops to confirm they were cooked.More

My partner and I got fish and chips from the Milton Street fish and chip shop, Friday night it was busy and we waited half an hour for our order, this wait was not advised when we paid. At home we unwrap our purchase, 2...pieces of fish of the day, one scoop of chips and a potato flip. The package was concerning small but it is hard to tell before you unwrap, our concerns were legitimate the portion was pathetic. The scoop of chips was barely enough for one and at $5 not cheap, chips aren't even expensive for to produce so why be so stingy? The fish was fine, potato flip average. Wouldn't visit again which is a shame as we are local.More

Fresh fish. Perfectly cooked crisp chips. Whats not to like? I only wish I'd asked for a full scoop as the chips were so good.

I have fond memories of my childhood (28+ years ago) when we would have our 1 night a week take away dinner. I always chose Miltons because they gave me the Crispy's,lol..and if there were none they would do our order a few orders behind so there were Crispy's from other peoples orders =) Then they brought in the Chocolate donut,OMG...was like the in Lava Cake back then.lol.i ordered 1 or 2 each time. Born & raised in Nelsom but then left 16+ years ago...Every F&C place i would go to in the north island none of them had heard of thr chocolate donut (some use to be certain there was no such thing,but id always say, there is in Nelson at the Milton St F&C). Fortunately my father is flying my daughter to Nelson this Wednesday for a day trip, Im hoping to get him to take her to the 1 place her Mum ate when growing up =) Maybe she too will bring me a Chocolate donut or 2 back with her for me if you still do them?? Unfortunately i cant travel as im about to have my baby, but im happy that my daughter will get to see the beautiful place i grew up in & eat at the best F&C shop i always have fond memories of.#MiltonStreetChildhoodMemories#
