This was a takeaway/ cafe for fish and chips/rice. There was a large assortment of fish shown on the fresh fish counter. It was bustling with locals and a few tourists. Cooked quickly to order, good portions, some meals came with salad and tasted ok too.

I had high expectations because people had raved about Hunky Dory. It's good that the fish and chips are made fresh to order and it all tastes ok, but it's not the fresh taste of the ocean that I expect from great seafood. The salads were the highlight for me. I felt that the serving sizes (being small) made the... More

I am one who would never go out of my way to have fish as a meal this has changed since visiting Hunky dory. I now have hunky dory once a week, they have changed the typical fish and chips experience. They use a Mediterranean seasoning with their fish which is fantastic, my go-to-meal is the old school pack which... More

Simple fish and chips for a good price. There's not really much else to say, we ordered in a relatively busy time and the service was still prompt. Easygoing comfort food.

This was my first visit to HD and didn't have high hopes, but was pretty good. Barra, chips and salad special for $19 was a good choice.

Staying in Chapel Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Chapel Street
Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with specialty stores selling just about everything. The famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor cater to high-end designer labels and exclusive boutiques. The community flocks to Prahran’s organic markets as a Saturday ritual, while art and film students leaf through vinyl LPs on Greville Street. The gay community also has a strong presence here. Prahran’s heritage buildings like the Reads Emporium and Prahan arcade offer a grand sense of scale and history. No matter your interest, come feel the pulse of one of Melbourne’s most loved precincts.
