This is in a great location opposite the lake, and grabbing some fish and chips and eating them at the lake on a lovely evening appealed to us. Look as kiwi's we have had better fish and chips and we found the options (i.e. having fresh fish, not frozen) expensive. There is a broad range of options to order (including... More

The Dory was better, but the hoki and the chips appear to have been bought from the freezer section of the New World down the road.

It was crowded, mixed clientele, mainly young. Great coffee and food, reasonably priced. Being crowded meant it was popular but it's also easily accessible, on the main drag.

Ordered 2 serves of fish and chips and were very disappointed to find out that the fish was the frozen type that can be bought boxed in the supermarket freezer. It just seems deceptive not to notify customers that this is the case. The chips were very good though. Overall I would not recommend this shop because it is not... More

As regulars to Wanaka, and lovers of fish and chips, we were very happy with our meal from BoaBoa. have tried several incarnations of such takeaways over the years in Wanaka and this was the first time we have finished our food and not felt over greased, ripped off, or swearing to never return. Definitely on the list for next... More

Overcooked and tasteless. Very disappointed with our John Dory and chips. We were looking forward to fish and chips by the lake. It was so dry and most of the chips were inedible.

Big queue, ticketed pick up, we came back after 30 mins, we were given accurate wait time. chips were deliciously cooked- never had hokkei before, great as a family supper by the lake.

Food depends on who is cooking but generally its good food. Quite expensive but that's Wanaka for you. Service is good.

Not fresh fish fillets, but store bought frozen fillets of Hoki, charged over the top prices. Chips over cooked. This takeaway has no idea of how to make fish and chips.

Ok nothing special, only 2 types of fish on sale today, Chips were those you get frozen in the super market, bit like Macdonalds ones, do we have to go to England to still get proper home made style chips? 3 of us ordered the same fish with chips, little strange coming in one giant parcel, hard trying to put...
