30/4/23 - On mission in the Southern burbs to hit up Island Bays crowning jewel.
Meal: Fish n Chips and potato fritters
Total cost: $12.40
Not off to an ideal start as I thought I ordered a paua fritter but got two potato fritters 🤦🏽♂️
Fish - (Warehou) nice large fillet with a great crust on it. A tad bit greasy but that didn’t detract from the beautiful tasting fillet. Fillet was clean and fresh and boardering on melt in your mouth territory!
Chips - Hand Cut!!! Cooked well with a nice bite and soft on the inside! Portion size was generous.
Took with me two pieces of buttered bread with Best Foods mayo which was an excellent accompaniment to the fish and hand cut chips!
The chips were damn near perfect! Well worth the Sunday drive out from Petone!
The shop is right next to the Island Bay bar. There is a car park and access from the back of the shop.
First time here. We ordered Singapore noodles, fried rice and Beef with black pepper sauce. Was told it will be ready in 30min, they were ready in 20min. Phone was ringing non-stop and people were coming in and out, very busy take away. The food itself was good. Portion was large. Will visit again.
I had the best meal of fish and chips I have had in years, every bit was enjoyable. Perfect amount of salt and crispy chip ratio. The team were flat out as the chip shop had been slammed, they all did a fantastic job in getting me my chippy order without much delay considering how busy they were. Brill job Bays Takeaways.
Meal was delicious! Chips perfectly salted, fish was delightful. The staff are fantastic. There was a legend who came in to help last minute on a busy night, thank you to that person! There's a reason this place is pumping :~)
Bambi Goreng - by far the best noodle dish I've had for ages!! Not too oily, lots of meat and veges. Good size. A++ will order again. (ordered via Door Dash)
