Over a year ago we vowed never to go back here after getting 2x awful portions of fish & chips - undercooked & greasy. At the time we phoned up as soon as we got home & opened out TA. The customer service we received...More

Actually we find your review quite unfair. All of your required order was there for your husband to collect. It was beside YOUR fish and chips on the counter for YOU to take. This was your mistake not ours but even so we happy offered...More

Food was nice and fresh and made with good quality ingredients. The staff were friendly and the menu provided gluten-free options. I was a walk in customer and I didn’t need to wait very long for my food to be prepared. Will definitely here again...More

We use these guys all the time. Fresh fish, awesome chips what more do you want. If you want to shake it up a bit. Order from the pub next door and eat like kings

This takeway does more than just fish and chips, they do pizzas and burgers too. Generally the fish and chips are really good but sometimes they smell of the cooking fat a wee bit. The best thing (and it is unique) is that you can...More

Thanks Tony and staff, We just had a lunch shout at work, all staff were very impressed with the delicious burgers and fish and chips and friendly service. I had the Cajun fish burger, the fish was cooked to perfection.

Regular visitors but very poor service tonight, clearly the young boy taking orders wasn't really enjoying being there! Order arrived next door minus half what we ordered had to wait another 15 minutes for the rest to arrive

Just happened to chance on the Milton St F & C when in the city. The regular fish was good quality, the cod divine. 2 of us had burgers and they were top notch. The chips were great - you don't need sauce with these...More

We loved ordering and having our tea brought to us in the Sprig and Fern next door. It tasted just as good the second time out of the paper. Highly recommend.

Questions & Answers
I have fond memories of my childhood (28+ years ago) when we would have our 1 night a week take away dinner. I always chose Miltons because they gave me the Crispy's,lol..and if there were none they would do our order a few orders behind so there were Crispy's from other peoples orders =) Then they brought in the Chocolate donut,OMG...was like the in Lava Cake back then.lol.i ordered 1 or 2 each time. Born & raised in Nelsom but then left 16+ years ago...Every F&C place i would go to in the north island none of them had heard of thr chocolate donut (some use to be certain there was no such thing,but id always say, there is in Nelson at the Milton St F&C). Fortunately my father is flying my daughter to Nelson this Wednesday for a day trip, Im hoping to get him to take her to the 1 place her Mum ate when growing up =) Maybe she too will bring me a Chocolate donut or 2 back with her for me if you still do them?? Unfortunately i cant travel as im about to have my baby, but im happy that my daughter will get to see the beautiful place i grew up in & eat at the best F&C shop i always have fond memories of.#MiltonStreetChildhoodMemories#
