Best fish and chips in Wellington

posted in: Food and drink | 0

Wellington has a reputation for some of New Zealand’s best fine dining but the city can do fast food as well as anyone. 

Its access to freshly caught fish landed at the port gives fryers the chance to cook up magnificent meals.

To help identify the best fish and chips in New Zealand, we’ve drawn on many sources including which fryers have taken awards at the national Best Chip Shop competitions. These awards have run since 2006 and are a useful guide to identifying the best in the country and in each region.

Our guide to the best fish and chips in Wellington includes the following recommendations:
