A family of fishermen since 1927.

Inspired by almost 90 years of fishing on the Greek Islands, Hunky Dory was established in 2004 as a family business with a vision to offering healthier seafood options along with the more traditional fish and chips. Whether it’s a delicious grilled fillet of Salmon or Whiting, Greek or spinach salad and a healthy serve of brown rice, there’s something for everyone. Traditionally fish and chips have been a take away food, but we wanted to create a comfortable and casual setting where customers could dine in and enjoy a glass of wine or a beer with their food.

Our aim is to be the best at what we do. We take pride in preparing and cooking fresh, tasty and healthy meals made to order. Our mouth watering seafood is delicious and tasty incorporating unique marinades and sauces that will keep you coming back. Our menu provides many healthy options such as simply grilled fish and wholesome salads to create a perfectly balanced meal.

At Hunky Dory, you’re part of the family.

For the last 11 years Hunky Dory has sold the product Pacific Dory as one of our regular fish-of-the-day varieties. This product has undergone several name changes over the years including Basa, Catfish, and Mirror Dory.

There is no clear industry guidelines for the label of this product and so Hunky Dory has continued to sell it under the commonly sold name of Pacific Dory. We always sell our fish-of-the-day as per market prices and have never sold this as premium local Dory.

We acknowledge that this may have caused some confusion so to avoid any confusion for our employees and customers from today we will be clearly labelling our fish-of-the-day product and all our fish in store. Pacific Dory will be clearly labelled as Pacific Dory (Basa).

We want to reassure our customers and the wider public that we are open and transparent and proud of the quality of the product our customers have come to know and expect from our stores since we started as family fishing business in 1927.

We fully support the wider industry call for clearer labelling of all seafood products in Australia and will continue to advocate for this.
