“not worth the wait”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

We stopped here to order dinner, there werent that many people there but it still took 40 minutes to get our food which was some chips and a burger each (2 of us). we dont mind waiting if its worth it but it wasnt and the woman serving was quite rude and there was a little sign saying that they arent mc donalds and to be patient but 40 minutes was really excessive for an over priced fish n chip shop, the chips were really good but the burgers were bad and the buns werent cooked. very disappointing. If you are going to take that long at least be friendly.

“Excellent - and more to the point open late”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

Friday night, late after 2 hours stuck in a motorway traffic jam our usual Warkworth eating stop on the way through was closed. After all it was 9 pm on a Spring Friday - the Indian, Chinese and Thai takeaways had all shut up shop already so when we found this fish and chip shop open we tried it, admittedly without any great expectations. It was fairly busy so we had a bit of a wait but we were going to be fed so weren't complaining. Then some guy in a Landrover reversed into my car...wasn't looking too good!

Actually it was outstanding. Mosit John Dory and excellent chips. You don't expect much of chips in NZ as they all come frozen from the same factory in industrial Auckland but these were great.

So top marks to this palce and thanks for being open.

“Best fish and chips ever”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Had fish and chips from here for a birthday treat in January.
We sat down by the Mahurangi river in Warkworth and ate them.
Absolutely the best I have ever had anywhere!
If you want a night out at a reasonable cost I recommend doing what we did and sit by the river, watch the ducks and the tidal flow in the cool of dusk. Wonderful

“Decent quality but a bit overpriced”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

The burger prices, descriptions and special names suggested I would be getting a bit more than a regular takeaway burger. Unfortunately, it was quite small with buns the size of the regular tip top ones, a small deep fried chicken 'patty' and miniscule salad. This would all have been fine if it was advertised as a 'chicken burger' with a price closer to $4. It was $6.90.

The chips and fish were hot, crisp and fresh and the woman serving was approachable and friendly. Seemed like quite a popular place with a few people ordering when we did.

Overall, I would probably go there again but I would not order a chicken burger.
