Had fish n chips twice during the week. Disappointed however that both nights they had run out of premium fish and chicken which the teenager wanted. Serving staff not overly friendly, felt like we were bothering him. The food was good, the prcies were expensive, not much else /o say really.

My family and I were really looking forward to a nice meal of fish and chips but this place didn't live up to our expectations. The service was good considering that there were quite a lot of people waiting/ordering. We asked for whiting but we were given fish that tasted fake. The fish was quite dry and the the chips...

After a long drive to paihia we got takeaway. The food was actually inedible which is hard for fish and chips... dry over cooked chips with no salt or vinegar as requested. Calami rings were okay... just shop bought ones. Fish burger was okay.... standard burger bun with a fresh bit of fish and lots of mayo. I would suggest... More

We were looking for some takeaway and thought Vinnie's looked alright and well priced. We both got burgers and some chips and they were awesome. Definitely recommend.

We went fishing in the morning and upon arrive took our freshly filleted snapper into Vinnies to have it fried. Excellent service and the fish was absolutely fabulous. Highly recommend if you love fish and chips.

We have heard that this is the best place in Paihia for fish and chips .... unfortunately it didn't live up to the hype. We found it very overpriced. Hamburgers didn't get eaten as they were not very tasty. Chips 'ok'. Fish 'ok'. Fast service though.

We had a fish and chips (dory) and found the service quick and efficient and the food was fresh. The fish was fresh and the batter was nice (you will like it if you like thick batter). The chips are prob on the small portion size but I thought it was perfect. We would come back again.
