Review of Sands Fish & Chips

623 Rocks Rd, Nelson 7011, New Zealand 7011

Overall Rating


I’ve been on holiday in Nelson for 10 days and have come here twice for fish and chips as I can’t get coeliac friendly GF in where I live at the moment so it felt like such a treat! Most things on the menu here can be made gluten free - burgers, chips, chicken nuggets, fish, hotdogs etc. There is an additional 15% surcharge for GF - I think that’s totally reasonable and have no issue with this. They have a dedicated frier for GF and when wrapped up it is clearly marked GF (my order included non GF both times for the non coeliacs we were eating with). The service was awesome and the owner was a great character.
