Best Fish and Chips in Bendigo

We thought that in the lead up to Easter, ‘The People of Bendigo’ would need to know where to go to get their fill. We do suggest that you may want to ring and order to avoid long delays on Good Friday though – you can even call the day before.

NEW! The Daggy Verandah   5443 8154
22 Hammer Street, Flora Hill
Our new awesome favourite. If you like your chips crispy, you can ask for ‘extra crispy’. Fabulous service. They also do a deep fried jam sandwich! Yes, really!

Lyttleton Terrace Takeaway   5442 9617
3/176 Lyttleton Terrace
There are many advocates for this this humble chippy. Comments include:

  • Ann says “great squishy chips” (the Poms love them, apparently)
  • Julie says “Best fish; the batter is always crispy”
  • Becca says “Always packed, but never much of a wait & always GOOD!!”
  • Nicole says “I recommend chips with all sauces, you can thank us later. They sprinkle with chicken salt, spray with vinegar and soy sauce then top wth tomato sauce. It looks awful but tastes ahhhhmazing!” Hmmm. We’ll leave that up to others to report back.

Nick: “He was a chef, the owner. We have eaten at just about every fish and chip shop in town and the missus won’t go anywhere else!”
