Beautiful fresh fish and chips. Cooked to perfection. Nice variety of fish and sauces to go with your order. We don't eat takeaway very often so it was a delicious treat.

We ordered two steak egg and bacon burgers from Vinnies and OMG, they were AWESOME!! If you want a real kiwi style burger, forget Micky D's or Burger King. These are simply the best ever.

Grabbed a quick meal from here for the family, huge selection and plenty of combo options. . By no means a gourmet takeaway joint but you defiantly get what you pay for and for the meal we had I do not have any complaints!!

We had a casual dinner of burger and chips at Vinnies. The burgers were big, tasty and fresh. Would definitely eat here again.

We were tired having just arrived and decided fish and chips in our apartment was just the job. However the fish wasn't terribly evident although the chips were nice and plentiful. Vinnies offers more than chippies back home so perhaps we should have gone for the battered scallops or sausages. So we were disappointed. We are used to a meaty... More

Ordered seafood basket and was disappointed, definitely from frozen not fresh as certain items had a taint to it, and was also very very dry, won't be back

Nice burger and chips, I would describe it as gourmet take away if that makes sense. Would eat here again

Specials are fantastic value. Food well cooked, not overly greasy and not killed twice. Scallops are lovely!

We weren't sure what to expect but we were very happy with our meal. I recommend the snapper. It was delicious. We will be back on our next trip to beautiful Paihia.

When in Rome...we went looking for fish n chips and ended up on the main tourist strip...not usually the best spot. We had two pieces of snapper, which were the highlight, a serve of chips and four scallops. The fish was pretty good but the scallops were watery and the chips needed some more salt (well more than the two... More
