We had an awesome meal from this fish n chip shop. The chips were really nice but the fish was amazing. I love the crumbed fish, especially the snapper and my family loved the battered variety.

Couldn't get through on the phone on a very busy Friday night so went around and had a 25 min wait. Crumbed and battered almost the same price- about $5 for a piece of fish. No Terakihi that night. Spring roll and sausage also around $3 mark. Lovely taste with very little of that oil/fat left on the newspaper. Is... More

Come here on a Friday evening and place your order to get an authentic kiwi fish and chip experience. It might be good, it might not be... Place your order, and wait 15 minutes or so for your dinner of salty / fatty goodness to arrive. Pop next door to LiquorKing and ask for some "Brown Bomber" beer to have... More

We viewed comments on Trip Advisor for a good Fish & Chip shop and would recommend Shaynes. It was good light battered fish and golden fluffy chips.

As expatriat New Zealanders, whenever we return we always like to indulge in an old kiwi favourite, fried oysters. But over the years we have been disillusioned by expensive oysters badly cooked with soggy fatty batter. Finally, on this visit we found the perfect ones at Shayne's. Light crispy batter and tasty Bluff oysters, perfectly cooked and reasonably priced. Highly... More
