We specifically waited for a Friday evening to have one of these famous hamburgers. The hamburgers were oversized, but so was the bready bun they were served on. I am glad we did not order fries, it would have been too much. I felt my...More

We hit multiple burger places while we were in Auckland, and this was by far the best. Well dressed burgers, and more fries/chips than one person can eat. If you are willing to share, just get one order. They give you a lot! My only...More

We were looking for a takeaway after flying in late. Found the white lady was close by. Easy to find, good menu and the burgers, chips and milkshakes were all great. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Good old fashioned burgers and toasted sandwich's make this a popular, iconic late night feed favorite. I had a cheese burger which was nice. Nothing fancy or modern here but worth a try.

New Zealand seems to have a thing for burgers, which I more than appreciate. Somehow, they're never quite as good as good ole' American burgers. This was another case of almost-as-good-but-not-quite. There's nothing wrong with this burger whatsoever. It's a good size. None of the...More

The White Lady - so-called - is an Auckland institution. This is where the drunks flock to feed in order to induce sobriety. It doesn't often work, but it's fun to watch, and to be part of a real Auckland kulturfest. This has been part...More
