We came here for takeaway fish and chips, and got quick and friendly service. A cheap meal ($24 for 4 adults), we got 2 servings of chips, a hot dog, 3 spring rolls and a serve of wedges. The spring rolls were home made and you could definitely tell the difference! They were so delicious and had a great flavour, I wish I'd ordered more!

When I go to a restaurant I expect the people serving me know what I am saying. Several times I tried to explain what I wanted and three people confused it more. In the end I gave up and just got what was from the menu. Whilst waiting I asked the staff what size take away container I was to get and when they showed me I nearly fainted. What they were giving me I would have paid less then $10 elsewhere but they wanted nearly $20. I cancelled the order took my money back and left. I don't like being ripped off.

A sign at the front claimed Largest Oysters in Paihia, but I was sceptical, and the price was on the higher side. However these were indeed the biggest oysters we ate in Bay of Island. One of these babies was equal to a full dozen at Duke of Marlborough.

We brought our day's catch. The chef recommended two styles of cooking (steamed Hong Kong style and deep fried sweet & sour).
Both were well prepared.
The outfit is average, staff attentive and lots of choices on the menue or buffet.

Very nice food with quick service but oh sooo expensive. $72 dollars for 2 dishes boiled rice, 1 beer and a soft drink.
