Great fish n chips, fresh and good price. The other place in centre of town was charging $8 for a crumbed fish, this one was $6 for same thing. Nice chunky chips. lovely service.

I went there with high hopes,after seeing the reviews, but came out very disappointed. Maybe it was an off day!!! The fish or should I say batter (as i am not sure if there was more than 50grams of blue cod) where very oily. Chip portion very small and scallops very mushy.

Cheap? Yes. Fast? Yes. Food? So-so.

We had the seafood basket (2 pieces each of fish, squid rings, prawns, mussels, and scallops) with kumara fries instead of regular potato fries - cost $24. But the batter was very doughy and heavy, and a lot of the seafood had a weird chewy/spongy texture. The fish and squid rings were good but I didn’t care for the rest.
