In the Aro Valley lies one of the best chip shops i’ve ever come across. Large hand cut chips with fresh fish a loyal support base that keep coming back. For good reason as well, the fish here are of excellent quality, and the chips are pretty much perfect. It’s everything I want in a chip shop and the price isn’t to extreme either especially considering the quality. A favourite spot of mine, grab some chips, maybe a rigger of beer from down the road at Garage Project and go have a great time in the sunshine!

They used to be very great, recently age has brought them down to just very good. To eat a Te Aro city is to fall irrevocably in love with this city.

As if you needed another reason to visit Wellington’s best non-pretentious fish and chips outlet, they have a pinball machine. Come for the amazing chunky chips, stay for the pinball machine (and because there’s usually a bit of a wait at peak times).

Fat hand cut chips and an array of seafood make the fish and chip shop on Aro Street an institution. My fave is the chips. Can’t beat ‘em.

Te Aro Fish Supply is one of the treasures of the Aro Valley, an old school fish and chip shop which handles fish and chips just the way we like them. Believe the hype.

This place is the O.G. of Wellington Fish'n'Chipperies.  From the faded signage to the video game - walking in here is like walking into your childhood takeaway night.  Prices are reasonable. Staff are friendly. The goods are good. An all around win.  For the kiwi classic, you just can't go past Te Aro fish'n'chips - I can almost hear the patriotic stylings of Dave Dobbyn.
