Different from traditional fish chips shops, Mt Vic Chippery offers customers various options and the instruction is quite clear on the board. The staff is quite friendly but it can be a long wait to get food without pre-order. The sizes of the fish are...More

Decent enough fish and chips, however it's nothing special, quite oily and very overpriced for what you get.

We are sorry to hear that your meal was not excellent and didn't live up to our reputation for being Wellington's favorite fish and chips. We would love an opportunity to look into this further to learn and improve from. If you have the time...More

Mt Vic Chippery was our local chippery when we lived in Wellington. It was/is a popular place which can get extremely busy between 18:00 and 20:00 - 25-30 minute waiting times are not uncommon. Though at first we experimented with a few different things on...More

Hi, thanks for your kind words about our chips but you really should buy our burgers too! Treat yourself to an evening of no cooking and more importantly no washing up! Just a correction on the oil, it's actually canola oil. However, we did use...More

Very fresh and tasty. I had soft shell crab burger with gluten-free batter and bun. Yum. Son had baked mussels, snapper and chips. Went here after climbing Mount Victoria, so we were pretty hungry. Great service, too.

What a classic way to spend a day in Wellington! Thanks for leaving us a review.

We came here for lunch after a stroll in te papa there are some seating areas but it's rather limited. There is a smorgasbord of choice for how you may want your fish and chips. A top place for a quick lunch.

We believe The Chippery serves the best fish and chips and here's why... We know where our fish comes from and it's super fresh. Our fish gets landed in Wellington regularly by our very own commercial fisherman and we work with other local suppliers to ensure quality and variety year round. Our oysters come from farms in Bluff and Marlborough and are absolutely delicious! To make the best fish and chips we start with the best ingredients. We use the finest quality Wellington craft beer to make our batter. Our Agria chips are cut by hand. When it comes to our burgers, our beef patties are also made by hand using grass-fed brisket. We use free-range pork shoulder and slow roast it for 12 hours to make our pulled pork burgers the best in town. Our Free-range eggs come from Wellington and make our delicious aioli and tartare sauces. We also use only the best free-range Waitoa Chicken on our menu. We understand that some people are on a restricted diet and we offer a wide selection of gluten free dishes including a gluten free batter for our fish and seeded gluten free buns are available for our burgers. We even have a dedicated gluten free fryer; just remember to let us know which items you need cooking separately. The Chippery also offers plenty of vegetarian and vegan offerings. If you need anything special, just ask, we'd love to help. We were the first fish and chip shop to use online ordering and offer a delivery service to 14 suburbs in the central Wellington area! Welcome to the Chippery.
