“Nice fish and chip meal”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Loved the blast from the past, old old fashion fish and chip meal, brought me back to my youth, a plate of fresh bread, free tea or coffee and a nice feed of fresh fish. Long may you continue to give us baby boomers memories of the good old days

“Best Fish & Chips in Whanganui”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Hands down, Georges is the best fish and chips in Whanganui. I've been many times, and not been disappointed yet. I love how you can pick your own fish from the window display, and they will cook it for you, or alternatively you can take it home fresh, and cook it yourself.

“Great fish and chips”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

We decided to give this place a try since we liked the sound of it. We used the little dining room next to the fish and chip shop. We were amazed at the quality and the quantity of food we had. The fish was cooked to perfection in a beautifully light and crisp batter; the chips were really good. All in all, we loved this place (and we loved the small bill at the end.

“Love the fish but....”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

Georges battered fish is just wonderful, we've never had a bad lot yet. We do, however, always pick our own fish to be cooked from the window. Unfortunately I can't say the same for their chips. Please please please find yourselves another supplier, those chips are like piddley scraps swept up off the floor.
