Went there for Fish and Chips, ordered the Terakihi and chips and they were fantastic. The fish was fresh and the batter not too heavy and the chips were well cooked. Would recommend to anyone.

The fresh tarahiki and kumara chips were really tasty. We had seen fresh fish coming in off the boat that afternoon and it seemed that this fish was so fresh, well cooked in crispy batter and very well priced. Definitely worth trying.

Egg burger was good old fashioned burger complete with beetroot. Fish was very generous and beautifully cooked. Chips were fresh and obviously cooked correctly and were delicious. I would heartily recommend this takeaway to anyone wanting a quick and yummy meal.

Close to the beach so grab some fish and chips and eat your lunch/dinner with a view! Good portion sizes, and thanks for the extra piece of fish :)
