Had a look at the reviews and went there with high expectations. The fish was excellent but the quality of the soggy, under - cooked chips was a long way from what was expected. The customer service could do with some work as well. Maybe...I just got them on a bad night.More

The best fish and chip burger I've had in a long time. Great portion sizes. Very friendly staff and very clean premises. Best of all extensive gluten free range. Well worth every cent!

We ordered Gluten Free fish and chips, chicken burger and a kids meal pack. All were excellent. The kumara fries are so good and the chicken nuggets are actual chicken. The food wasn't greasy. Thanks for a great meal.

Best fish and chips in Nelson, chicken nuggets are homemade yummy bits of real chicken, good hotdogs and not the saveloy type ones, fish is always fresh and cooked well

Amazing!! Best fish & chips in town by a long shot. Must try the oysters if they’re in season or the mussels.

You know those little timer things they give you? Those things went off at the perfect time as if they knew exactly how long it would take every time. When we got the meal the fish was perfect and the chips were too. This place...is one of the best fish and chip shops you'll ever go to, if not the bestMore

I'm so glad I found this gluten free fish and chip shop which was suitable for coeliacs. Nearly everything on the menu was coeliac safe so I felt good eating here. My partner (not a coeliac) really enjoyed his gluten free fish and chips too....We went back twice it was that good and will definitely go back again when in Nelson.More
