The way fish and chips should be in NZ! We got a fisherman's basket type pack. Well-priced and good quality.

This place was very close to where we stayed so we popped in for some fish and chips for tea. Got the kumara chips and also the tarahiki fish. It was inexpensive and delicious. I've paid heaps more in fancy places and had it not be as good. Plus we got a tartare sauce which only $2 and delicious.

Was more than disappointed with the quality, the service and the food at this fish and chip shop. Upon entering the store, was not met with a friendly greeting we were just watched whilst trying to decide, after reviewing the menu, we placed our order, the food was very expensive so assumed that it must have been of great quality...

Fish and chip(s) in a small shop. I got a big portion wrapped on a paper and we ate outside on a bench in front of the shop because it was a beautiful day. It's more a take away food than an actual restaurant. We liked the food and it's reasonably priced.

This place was not good at all, soggy oily fish, fries were run of the mill, and the only sauces they had were ketchup. The milk shake was a little over half full and was just a pink slime, the customer service was lacking also.

This small shop offered a lot more than expected. We had fresh hoki and chips cooked to perfection by the lake. Great!!!

Best fish and chips I have ever had, reasonably priced and friendly service. The food wasn't greasy at all and was cooked to perfection! Will be coming back here on my next trip to NZ!

Got a great serving of fish and chips served with some local character and a great price. Fish was tasty and plenty of food to serve the 5 of us

Nice tasting fish and chips however portion size was so small that we had to go elsewhere to finish our lunch. Disappointing:(
