Inspired by almost 90 years of fishing on the Greek Islands, Hunky Dory was established in 2004 as a family business with a vision of 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 super salad and a healthy serve of brown rice, there’s something for everyone.
Traditionally fish and chips have been a take away food, Hunky Dory 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.
Hunky Dory takes pride in preparing and cooking fresh, tasty and healthy meals made to order. Their mouthwatering seafood is delicious and tasty, incorporating unique marinades and sauces that will keep you coming back. Their menu provides many healthy options such as grilled fish and wholesome salads to create a perfectly balanced meal, in addition to the old fried favorites such as those featured in their Old School Pack.
There are currently ten Hunky Dory Fish & Chip restaurants around Melbourne and has become a Melbourne institution.
As a family owned business with over 150 employees, Hunky Dory is committed to ensuring they continue to keep their family culture, so everyone feels the love, support and respect their family provides. To help reiterate this to their team, they participate in national initiatives, which include Father Bob Maguire Foundation, Movember, Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal, HoMie and ADA Australia Training.
