This is a good easy going restaurant/takeaway. The fish is fresh and well cooked but I think the thing that sets Hooked apart from the others is the salads and dressings that you can get with it. Service is quick (if you are going to the movies down the road). Also offers alcoholic drinks with the meal.

They just do great fish and chips here. Loved the Grenadier, loved the calamari, loved the chips and loved the Asian slaw. Great service too. Can't go wrong with Hooked in Hawthorn.

It is nice to be able to sit at a good local fish and chip shop with a glass of wine before a movie. Service is prompt,food good for a cheap eats. Just don't sit by the door as it often does not close and if it is cold it blows in. Serves are ample with a nice choice of... More

The chips really are very good and the restaurant presents nicely but there were a few misses. Two separate orders, one containing dim sims and the other for a vegetarian coeliac, were mixed together and served in a single box. For those with coeliac disease rather than a preference for gluten free, this is pretty important. And maybe I am... More

Neat fish restaurant with maritime furniture and awesome atmosphere. Everything is very tasty, especially the remoulade comming with the fish and chips. We also ordered the lunch special for 10 bucks, which is definitely a tip on Glenferrie Road.

We have had the $10 lunch special a few times now but would not order from here for dinner due the portion size vs cost. The lunch special contains a great Asian slaw (Greek salad is also available) but the fish is so thin that it is mostly batter. The small portion of chips are crunchy and moorish, leaving you...

We love Hooked on Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn. The service is excellent, as is their menu. There is a great range of fish and extras. Particularly like their $10 lunch specials! They include sustainable fish options too. The restaurant's interior is clean and pleasant.

As I live virtually around the corner I was hoping this would be great. In the past we've always gone to Richmond Oysters on Church Street which is always excellent however being in Richmond not so good getting all the way back to Hawthorn with takeaway. The grilled barramundi was as fresh as could be but what let this down... More

Have not been moved to write a negative review before, but after the fish and chips from here proved to be 90% batter and inedible and the chips underdone and cardboard like.... Needs to lift its game. Won't be giving it a second chance..

Grilled fish is presented in beautiful shape and taste. Unfortunately, both calamari and fish are frozen one, it's easy to realise in every bite. One advantageous point is the chips. But chips is salty anyway. The second time we dined because of a coupon "buy 1 get 1 free" found in Coles, if not we may not come back.
