Being a local in Herne Bay, I visit John dory’s regularly.
I normally get crumbed snapper and chips. It is SUPERB! crispy and well drained. The fish burgers are divine too. Nice friendly service and love the short wait on the phone orders. Highly recommend !!

Such great potential, but let down majorly with the mussels. I ordered 1 chips, 1 spring roll, and 5 mussels. The chips were great, best I've had in a while. The spring roll was good value & tasty. But unfortunately, the mussels (of which I paid for 5 & received 5) were TERRIBLE!! They were absolutely tasteless, & 2 of them were tiny (slightly bigger than a $2 coin). Possibly the worst mussels I've ever eaten. Not what I would expect at all from a place that claims to have "the best seafood with fresh fish delivered daily"... I phoned the shop soon after & told them the situation, & all they offered me was an apology, no promise of action to rectify the situation; poor customer service to top it all off. I will not be returning.

Divine fish and chips. Clean store and friendly staff. The fish was also really fresh :) Not overly greasy like other fish and chip places. Would have preferred to have given 4 and a half stars if had been possible only wish they sold john dory, otherwise excellent Quality and Recommended!

Living nearby I collect bread-crumbed fish twice a week, always fresh and tasty.

Worst fish and chips ever. Greasy, soggy and tasteless. Avoid at all costs! We will never visit this place again. It is the kind of place that even a call to explain how bad the meal is, is met with complete disinterest - so much for satisfying customers. Left with a vile, greasy taste after the experience.

These guys are generally pretty good. Reasonably consistent. Fish always fresh. Chips can be overcooked at times. I recommend this place.

Nice clean place & good fish - Snapper, Terkihi, etc.
But much to my disappointment John Dory does not sell John Dory.

Just recently had a fleeting trip back to Auckland and fancied some schnapper! We were staying in Herne Bay and purchased cooked oysters, mussels,schnapper and chips from John Dorys. The shop was very clean and the food and service excellent.
Would definitely recommend!

This was a fluke that turned out to be such a pleasant gift for a scrumptious, delishhhhhhh burger in the city! I haven't had such an amazing fish burger ANYWHERE...worth every cent, every minute of the wait :) Great size, well made for a burger (in terms of how the lettuce etc was placed too), well packed...even the fries felt healthy- probably coz of how well they were wrapped and ridden of excess oil. With eventual popularity, I hope the quality of their food NEVER transforms into that of any regular burger place.

We were there on a very busy night, things smelled so good, ordered fish and chips with a salad, it was well worth the wait and breaking my diet, I would go back here time and time again.Thank you for a absolutely wonderful meal and service with a smile.
