Had takeaways twice over Christmas. The first time had bacon and cheese burger, bacon and egg burger, piece of snapper and chips. All were excellent. Fish was so fresh, really good portion and the chips were just how I like them. My bacon cheese burger was great and plenty off fillings. The bacon and egg burger was enjoyed by hubby but just note it does not have a meat patty - it's simply bacon and egg and some other goodies which wasn't quite what he expected.

The next time we ordered fish and chips. No snapper that day so had dory. Beautiful fresh fish but it was dripping in oil and soggy batter. The chips were overcooked and greasy - shouldn't have gone out. This was an absolute stark contrast to the previous lot. We were both so disappointed by the second visit. I guess it depends who is cooking that day - my vote goes to the first cook who was top notch.

Service is good and wait times not too bad. Note - they do not do potato fritters. I would return but have given average due to the consistency. If just the first time it would have been 5 stars.

Best fish burger in NZ - so fresh and tasty. Other meals were also delicious and well priced. Went down well with a pint of beer, super kiwi.

It’s sad to think that because this shop/chippy is a bit of the beaten track not many people will get to try, what I believe to be, the best fish burger in NZ. We’d eaten here before about 8 years ago and remember just how good it was. Perfect batter, perfect bit of fish and of course made to perfection. Thank you guys, can’t wait till the next time!

A secret treasure. The views of the bay were amazing. The fish and chips were outstanding. The fish melted in your mouth and the chips had that perfect crunch factor. The ladies behind the till were awesome. Had a chat with the locals whilst waiting for family to arrive and you couldnt have asked to speak to such wonderful people. I would definitely drive out here just for the local people and the fish n chips. Thanks for a great experience.
