Simply the best fish and chips in the North Island. if I have to make a slightly negative comment, it would be that the premises are looking a bit tired could do with a bit of a makeover, also some more seating and sun shade. I travel over to Tauranga quite regularly to have some. great fish, great price !!! Took friends from overseas over for lunch , they just loved it. Would definitely recommend Bobby's to friends visiting Tauranga.....

Went on a saturday around 1.30ish, beautiful day..... but when we evenutally found a park and walked across to this place, there was a huge queue and people had already been waiting 20 minutes just to get served. You had to queue around the "dining area" which isn't pleasant for anyone - you or the diner! It didn't smell the greatest and definitely needs a revamp. It used to be the best place for fish n chips, now I wouldn't bother. The wait is far too long and far too pricy for what you get.

Never go here. The food is bad. All of the fish is greasy, the chips are yuck. You will be waiting an hour for absolutely terrible food. Yes, I said an hour. It's ridiculous. Its dirty inside, all of the staff are unfriendly and have dirty uniforms. NEVER GO HERE.

Best fish and chips in the bay. Only thing that let's it down is I personal feel it is time they gave the whole place a makeover. Looks a bit tied.

If you're around the area and would love some fish and chips, Bobby's Fresh Fish Market is the place to go to. Road side parking is available though possibly tricky to get at times.

There's some seating around the restaurant, though slightly limited. I would assume that most of the customers take away the food. The fish is fresh and delicious but a tad bit too greasy. Very well priced as well. $4 per piece of fish and less than $2 for a serving of chips. I eat a substantial amount and I was stuffed by 2 pieces of fish and a serving of chips. Chips were on the salty side, but still nice nevertheless as everything was served piping hot.

Meals do not come with utensils so expect to use your hands for the fried food. Napkins are given however.

Only main gripe with the place, which is inevitable is that the wait for the fish and chips was a good 30-45 minutes because of the long queue of customers. But I would say that it is worth the wait if you can afford the time.

Very friendly staff who chatted a little with us as well. Would definitely recommend this place to friends visiting Tauranga. Great price for fish and chips in New Zealand.
