I hate writing negative comments but this place served up some very ordinary fish & chips. We threw away most of the food as I wouldn't serve the chips to seagulls they were so thin and the potato cakes ere made from black potatoes! The steak sandwich was average as too the fish.

Honest, friendly, value for money fish and chip shop- the kind you remember as a kid. Nice big flaky fish, crispy batter, yummy chips with a good helping of salt...it's not pretentious or hipster, it's just take away done well.

This is a classic Greek fish and chip shop. The fish is a little greasy and the chips have a far bit of salt, but who cares! It is one of the best in Mount Gambier and my family fish and chip shop since the beginning of time. Unfortunately the owners who made it great have moved on but the... More

Occasional treat, know of only one more in Woodville Road, Adelaide, that is up there at this high level of deliciousness. Long term, I guess Greek background owners, know how to do the real deal with fish. Trip to MG must be coming up soon...

Having recently moved to Mount Gambier we went to Chris and Mary's. We ordered $8 and truthfully do not think we received value for money. There was way to many small chips, and was very heavy on the chicken salt.

I went here on the reviews given. It was the worst fish & chips I have ever had. They were so greasy they stuck to the paper, so my fish all broke apart & I lost half the batter to the paper, my husband got whiting, paid $8 for a very small piece, it still had its gills & part... More

Every time I visit Mount Gambier (often, being as I grew up there) I visit East Gambier Fish and Chips. Hand cut potato chip with lots of chicken salt is a great treat. I can highly recommend the battered flake, which simply melts in your mouth. You are guaranteed a service with a smile, with Chris and Mary knowing their... More

This is a typical Australian fish and chip shop, but the difference is they present really tasty food, AND the owners are nice folks too! I thoroughly recommend the hamburger with the lot, it tastes great, and my children say the yiros is pretty darn good. The owners have often made some friendly little gesture to me when I've been...
