Oceanz takeaways at Silverdale, near Orewa, has been named the top chip shop in New Zealand.

The outlet beat hundreds of others entered in the annual competition decided by public voting, mystery judging and analysis of chip fat.

Paul Frances told Morning Report that snapper is the favourite choice of customers.

He says Oceanz has its own boats, which means the fish is "only four to five hours old" when it's placed in the vat.
