Stopped by for a quick bite of some local fish and chips. They were good done quite well, but nothing screamed out at me.

This place looked absolutely ghastly. When I arrived for a take away meal, the place was empty, windows were empty and dirty, and there was no appeal at all to find my lunch here. Disappointed, and confused, as the other ratings on this platform are quite high... But then, judge for yourself!

Felt like fish and chips and they were still open at 8:30pm, no queue so quick service and good beer battered snapper and just the right amount of the best chips around Ponsonby. Wrapped in clean newsprint paper which meant it was still hot by the time I reached home. My favourite F&C shop.

The fish was fresh and had a smooth taste. Chips were perfect, especially the sweet potato fries. All came wrapped in news print paper as God intended fish and chips should be. Pleasant staff to boot!

Fresh grilled and perfectly well cooked fish with many different options. Generous portions. Excellent quality. We got a takeaway. Pricey for overseas travellers.

Having a restricted diet is a nuisance and so much is not available. Grilled fish was my option here as chips were not an option. On two occasions grilled snapper was the option and on both occasions I enjoyed the flavour and the fish was perfectly cooked. The hosts are very friendly and made the experience worthwhile. Will definitely return... More

These guys know how to batter fish, crumb fish, cook chunky chips just right. If you have to go with the traditional F&C go here, its just opposite Ponsonby Central on Ponsonby Rd, always very quick and the best quality. If you want value for money, I can only ever get thru 2 pieces as the fish is so big... More
