“Yummy!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Found this place via trip advisor and happy to say that I'm very satisfied :) Plenty of parking outside the shop which is great on a cold day like this. As soon as I set my foot in the shop, staff greeted me with a huge smile on his face and took my order. I got my order in less than 10 minutes. Crunchy golden fish and chips for $5....so gooood.

“Great fish and chips”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

This is one of the best fish and chip shops in Rotorua. I had so many massive let downs going elsewhere when I finally stumbled on this place. I had a snapper crumbed which was so yum and the chips were really nice and crunchy too. It was cool to be able to go and eat it at the lake while it was fresh as well.

“Superb fish and chips”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Stopped here by chance on the way back to our hotel for a late lunch of chips, potato cakes and some fish. We ended up eating from the paper wrappings at the side of the lake and it was great.

Service was prompt and staff were very pleasant. The food was hot, well cooked and especially the potato cakes were not overly battered. Prices were much lower than we expected and all in all it was a great tasting take-away lunch. The punchline of the shop is "Bloody Marvellous Fish & Chips", and we can only agree.

If in Rotorua again, I'd be more than happy to have food from here again.
