Takeaway-loving thieves intent on securing their fish and chip fix have stolen up to $1000 worth of frozen food.

The thieves made off with the large amount of goods from a storage container at Masterton's Mr Chips Chinese Takeaway overnight on Tuesday.

The haul, worth between $500-$1000, included commercially-packaged chicken nuggets, crab sticks, fish balls and spring rolls.

Senior Sergeant Warwick Burr said the break-in at the Chapel St store happened some time between 10.30pm on Tuesday and 10am on Wednesday.
