We have been several times to the Redwoods shop, but they seem to be so short-staffed and always running out of food, eg the seafood kebabs. We just ended up walking out and going elsewhere.

Used to be good for fresh fish but now they never have any! Just bought first ever serving of Fish & Chips. Butter Fish was disgusting and chips average at best.

We have always supported Te Arawa fish shop but our last 2 experiences will be the last.At least for the Fairy springs rd Shop.The whole feed was disappointing. Lack of staff meant an unreal wait for it.Both times their were no cooked mussels and not much fresh fish in the cabinet and no raw fish.

One of the best places to have fish and chips in the area. They get their fish fresh (very important) and they use good oil. The resulting product is not too oily and doesn't make you feel sick afterwards. The price is also extremely reasonable for the

By recommendation we visited here for fish and chips take away. The establishment is established to help the Maori people and it is well run, lovely and clean and the staff are very welcoming.

Seafood looks fresh and delicious. Beautifully laid out in the display cabinet. Absolutely appealing to the eye. Ordered a snapper fillet from the display cabinet to be cooked and battered. How divine that was with 6 scallops. Staff were friendly. The entire shop looks and smells hygeinic. Interesting stories on the walls. Te Arawa Geneology on the walls on paddles.... More

Also a great place for those lazy warm evenings where you can buy great fish and chips and sit outside on the little tables to eat them. Excellent service too.
