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.

New staff recently taken over, recommend their fish & chips , best batter I have ever tasted. Crispy and well drained. Family members recommend their burgers.

Ask if the fish is fresh or not because most days it will be frozen fillets. This is the only chippie in the Ngunuru and Tutukaka area, but its not the best. It could do a lot better if the owner put some effort into...More

You can't visit this beautiful coastal village without the obligatory stop for 'fish & chips' - particularly for out of country guests. Get your takeaway and then enjoy along the gorgeous estuary across the road. The food and scenery are a complimentary match.

Food quality has deteriorated, wait times have increased. There are other options not far away. Probably won’t try again.

I can’t quite grasp how it can take so long to cook fish and chips! I think the longest I’ve ever had to wait is 10 minutes, but an hour for two fish and large chips is ridiculous. No food is worth waiting that long...More

Been coming for last 15 years. Hour and a half wait. Went home and half the order missing. Even had a burger without a bun. Hire some decent staff. Even Mc Donald's isnt this bad. Wont be coming back.

We were staying at Tutukaka and came here for a quick informal takeaway meal. I forget what species of fish we had but it was simply and properly cooked. It seemed popular with residents.

Great Range of Food & Fresh Fish options :) Always a winner and located across from Beautiful Ngunguru Estuary. Staff could be a little friendlier in the customer service realm, often a little grumpy

Got takeaway fish 'n chips for dinner. Chips were cooked well & the fish was fresh & a decent size. We appreciated the fact that the whole meal wasn't oily. Good spot for some takeaways while in the area.
