My wife and I often come here when we are in the area, and I come just for the fish and chips when I go out on the motorbike. We stayed at Miranda holiday park this weekend, so had the fish and chips for our Saturday meal. As usual, they did not disappoint. A good portion with fresh battered fish.

All the usual things available here, burgers, fritters, sea dogs and toasted sandwiches but the real thing here is the fish. Fresh is the best and this place is across the road from the ocean. If it is fresh is isn't on the menu. We had a choice of Hoki, Gurnard, Snapper or Terakihi. Tried both the snapper and the... More

Three of us stopped here for fish and chips on a Sunday on our way back from a weekend in the Coromandel. There was no queue and a wide range of fish were on offer. We opted for snapper. The fish when it arrived was very good indeed. The batter was light, fresh and very tasty. Chips were also tasty... More

Quite a long drive and it was good to stop here. A bit basic and rough but decent fish (snapper and gurnard) and really good chips at a decent price. Happy to stop here again if passing

GRrwat place to stop for fish and chips. Never drive past! Hard to get a park at times, especially if towing a boat or caravan.

I'd heard of the famous Kaiaua Fish & Chip shop but never been there. Until January this year that is. Kaiaua is on the coast road between Kawakawa Bay and Miranda on the Firth of Thames. This is a great drive and knowing that we were stopping at the Kaiaua Fish & Chip shop made it all the more exciting.... More

Went here 6pm 2nd January. Not enough care was put into the food. Order was ready quick enough but not cooked enough except fish which was massively over done. Chips still white nd burger meat warm. Not worth all the hype or the drive. There is much better elsewhere.

We had lunch Fish and chips style. We ate deep fried mussels, scallops, snapper and chips. Cost was 30$ with beverage. Food was very good and fresh. We noticed that our timing was good as they were a lot of people after us. Nice location and atmosphere.

Thank Ismo H
