The best option in the area by far and they really come through with some great burgers. They put in plenty of everything they say they will.

Even though we're usually more into simple cheesy-greasy burgers than veggie-oriented stuff, we enjoyed that one thoroughly.

The fat tui offers incredible burgers and chips. I've tried just about every burger on the menu and each one has exceeded my expectations. The staff are a friendly and fun group, and the entire place is full of good vibes. The ice cream sammies are great as well if you have any room left after your burger!

Huge burgers that are a perfect way to end your hike along the Able Tasman Track. The taste was not a standout, however they were still very enjoyable and super filling! The service was also impeccable despite the long wait time on food. We were able to order chips as an entree which come out within 5 minutes.

Fat Tui gives you great burgers in a relaxed and informal environment at reasonable prices. Having eaten at the other two places locally and been rather disappointed Fat Tui bought it back up for us.

Some of the best burgers we have ever tasted. It can be a bit of a wait in the summer months, so arrive early

I cannot say it's the worst or the best since there are only few choices in the area. And after surfing or hiking for hours we all are definitely starving .My burger was big and good but my wife got food poisoning with the lamb burger. At least that was what the insurance told us .We got to say that... More

It is probably the best hamburger we have ever eaten in NZ. I asked a Bull Eye. The meat was perfect, the bread was amazing... it was a great composition. The guys are very flexible offering great gluten free alternative to my girlfriend. They were very very friendly. The service was exceptional! Really worthy place!
