We went in search of the van by the lake front that's recommended in the guide books. Luckily we asked a local where it was supposed to be parked and were told it had moved to a shopfront in the main street.
Just as well we asked otherwise we may have missed this unassuming place and missed some fantastic fish and chips. The service from the husband and wife team was first class and the meal freshly cooked and well priced.

Fantastic fish at this warm, unassuming and unpretentious joint. Lightly battered, very fresh and oh so delicious. Don't miss it!

Had the lamb burger on my way through Te Anau (to Milford Sound)...it was sensational. Had to have another on the way back from Milford Sound the very next day.

Wish you had a shop in Australia as well.

Would have given one star but the blue cod and fries for adults were good. The kids meal literally had 17 chips (and two of them were actually broken, so really only 15) and two chicken nuggets. To add extra nuggets for our older kids you had to pay $1.50 each!! The pack came with a soft drink, which we would have preferred not to have had. Please up your game with the kids meal if you want family business. Add more chips and nuggets to give a decent meal for kids. The bakery and dairy offer far better value for money.
