I have gone to Mangonui for years and never made it here. The wife and I had some spare time and a hunger so in we went. Very pleased. It isn't cheap for fish and chips but a great setup. The fish was beautiful. Fresh, lightly battered and cooked in clean oil. The chips were of size and cooked till beautifully crisp and brown.
It is an efficient operation, we were fed in 10 minutes and there were plenty of people there. You sit on the covered deck and look the views. Mangonui isn't the prettiest place but it is reasonably untouched so it makes a nice change you average fish and chip shop that has no eating area and no views.
There is a bar too. Brilliant. My corona was $8 but on a hot summers day it was money well spent. There is free cutlery, lemon and extra dollar or so gets you your train smash or tartare.
I reckon its great to see and fish and chip shop that is doing it well rather than just doing it. Well worth the dollars.
