Stumbled across this place while on Cuba Street. Great concept of a fish stall and a takeaway where you can have the fish that you just bought cooked.
Ordered the meal with battered Terahiki fish and it was absolutely gorgeous. The fish was definitely the best that I can remember having.

The Lower Hutt Wellington Sea Market was an awful experience. Terrible customer service. I would never got to any of their 3 places in Wellington. I will avoid at all costs. I was served 2 fried fish that were cold in the middle. I said to the grumpy old lady behind the counter that I wanted new fish fried. All she did was throw the uncooked ones back in the fryer. Surely this is not what you are supposed to do? I refused to eat any of it and left it all there. She refused a refund. I am no expert on food preparation but that seems to go against everything I have ever learnt and done!

Perfect place for takeaway fish and chips. Cooked in fresh oil with no smell normally associated with takeaway places. Limited seating to eat but most people take-away.
Uncooked fresh fish available.
TV on wall and magazines spread around to read. Dressings available.
I rate this place as one of the best I've been to and well worth a try.
