Good fish and chips. Make sure you get your number. 20 minutes meant 40 for takeout in our experience though. Could have been a busy Friday night?

1 of 2 f'nc shops in Te Anau. The dairy is the other one. Slightly higher prices than used to, which is typical for Te Anau. Better as a sit down than a takeaway. Not THAT flash, but okay if you have an FnC craving.

We had great fish and chips from here our first night. One of the party had the deep fried scallops, which were gorgeous. They do kumara chips, which was a treat for the Paleo member of the party. Recommended.

We had beautiful fish and chips here with a delicious steak burger, fish was so fresh, steak burger was big and real steak inside and price is very affordable. We will definitely come back next time visit here.
