I went looking for a new fish and chippie after frustration with the ones in Remuera – constant wrong orders, chips tasting like they are cooked in diesel or something (Kiwiana). I was suspicious about a Chinese (I assume) place after the disaster when the old Remuera Fish Pot cafe was sold, ruining it completely.
However, I have now been to Epsom Fresh Fish and Chips about 10 times – and can report that (in my humble opinion) the food is good and not expensive, and they are reliable. The snapper is fresh and very good, the chips are crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside, and they do wicked toasted sandwiches. They are all business and very quick, but manage to be very friendly, and dole out lollypops to the kids (and cheeky adults like me).
Their English is not perfect of course, but I have never had a problem ordering on the phone.
Once they cooked me a cheese toastie when I asked for bacon and cheese; they whipped the right one together for me and gave me the cheese one for free.
I will keep going there while it is good.
Don’t ignore the reviews…terrible fish and chips! Tasted like the oil has been there for the last 10 years! we ordered fresh snapper and it was not like any snapper I’ve had..very flat and tasteless. awful!
Ignore the old reviews, from before the new people bought this place. I have been here regularly since 2011 and I have found the staff to be very nice and friendly, and the food excellent. Delicious fish and the chips are great too.
There is a steady stream of customers each time I go there so they are definitely doing something right
I had a very bad experience here tonight. Bad service is an understatement! I was served by a VERY angry and unfriendly girl on the till. Feeling very unnerved, when we went back to pick up our order, my mother went in instead who found out that she had thrown our order in the bin!
She swore at my mother and spent the whole time staring at her while my poor old frazzled mum waited for our order to be cooked. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL and a fellow diner waiting also commented on the usual bad service. Don’t waste your time.
I chose to eat here as I was told the owner bought and de-boned his fish fresh daily. Generally very good fish with average chips. Fish ( snapper )had a nice thin light batter that was crispy. Chips were a bit soggy, heavy and oil, partially my own fault for taking the long way home. The price for 4 snapper and a big scoop of chips was $21 which I feel is pretty good value.
