Vinnies is the fish and chips place in Paihia. you get a proper meal for about 9 NZD and you can sit in front of it with a view of the bay. there are definitely better fish annd chips places but for a quick and big meal in Paihia vinnies is the place to go. Also serves sandwiches and burgers. Staff is local and friendly.

This takeaway has the best value and tasting fish and chips in New Zealand. The fish was fresh, large, and well cooked with a very light batter. The chips were excellent and the price was great.

Very friendly staff, but very over priced Fish and Chips and not much for your money. Chips were dry and not nice at all. Found a little hidden place around the corner which was much nicer and cheaper.

sole staff member was friendly but very busy. Had to answer the phone, cook and serve customers.
Disappointing fish that was oily and greasy and sadly the chips were overcooked.
Will not be returning in a hurry

Lovely fish and chips. Hubby also caught his own fish and took it to Vinnies and they cooked it for $2 a fillet. It was yum!
