I’ve been looking forward to writing this review – I wouldn’t advise going to this eatery, it isn’t award winning any more, it’s changed hands. Different owners now and not to the standards it once was – very average food, fish burger was bland and donuts were old. Disappointing to say the least – then we had drama in correcting our order, and the counter person/staff had the nerve to argue with us about what we ordered. Rude staff, and definitely not the best fish n’ chips in Devonport any more!!
Riba Fish & Chips in Devonport is absolutely excellent. You only have to wait about 10 minutes. The chips are nice and crisp, not oily or greasy and they are made with vegetable oil. They are the best chips in Auckland. Their burgers are great as is the rest of the food on their menu.
I went to Riba with a group friends, as we wanted to have some chips and ignore the temptations of Bramptins! We ordered the large portion of chips($6) with two tins of tomato sauce ($2ea). The chips came within 5minutes and every chip was cooked perfectly!they were seasoned and had the perfect crunchy outside. The chips weren’t greasy or oily either, which was very pleasant! I suppose the only downside was that the large portion of chips could really only feed 2-3people, not 5. We were hoping that the portions would be the same as another chip shop, where apparently the chips taste like cardboard (which is why we didn’t go there.) Overall a great meal.
