Usually you don't wait long, but if you happen to get there behind a bus load of people, the staff can tell you exactly how long the wait is so it's no drama when there is so much to do and see in Marahau. Every single burger is the bomb!!

These guys make the best fish burger I have ever eaten in my life, and I've eaten many over five decades. The bun was beautifully seeded and toasted, with the freshest of salad ingredients inside.

It's a fantastically satisfying huge burger that's up there with the best iconic burgers in NZ. Took the kids and they loved it but it would be nice to have a smaller kids burger as an option. thank you

I had the 'Cowpat' and it was fab. Its nice to eat at a place that takes its time to produce a very good product. A burger is usually a burger but these guys make something special.

The food here is fantastic! Amazing burgers cooked from a 'caravan' - the choice of flavours was hard to make but all of us were very happy with what we got. Packed full of salad so felt really healthy too!
