We bought $17 worth of the crinkle cut chips here, best $17 we ever spent. Best fish and chips in Invercargill, hands down. They also introduced me to a deep fried mars bar (which will give you dental nightmares for the rest of your life, but have it once just for the novelty) and also to corn on the cob from a fish and chip shop. They do soup as well which is an interesting thing to get, always fantastic. No complaints whatsoever.
The Albatross Takeaways are a 5 minute walk from the Southern Institute of Technology. They provide fish and chips and other meals such as burgers, oysters (when in season), and chinese meals.
The staff have limited English, but are friendly and speak Cantonese and Mandarin. EFTPOS is available, but they do not give cash out. The store opens at 12 pm, lunch time, and closes at around 10pm.
The Albatross fish and chip shop is great value! I challenge anyone to try and eat $5 worth of chips. It is impossible!
