What a pleasant surprise to find the burger place next to our kayak tour operators. More or less Everything made from scratch and super tasty and filling! Probably one of the best burgers ever!

OK , first of all make sure you have a double jointed jaw, these burgers are not large, not oversize, these puppies are HUGE!!! But oh so good. Tasty, delicious, juice dripping over knuckles goodness, full of flavour and worth every bite.

It was a big surprise. Recommended by friends , we went looking for the place from our motel in Kaiteriteri. A decrepit old bus at the far end of the road, uncomfortable bench tables in the yard, But oh! what BURGERS. Fresh, Large, Juicy , lots of things inside. It was an enjoyment from beginning to end. The long wait... More

This is a fairly casual outfit - burgers cooked for you from a food trailer and eaten outdoors. Fantastic and large burgers with fresh ingredients.

It's one of those places you have to go because aren't we always on the hunt for that "perfect burger"? It was very close by our hotel and came highly recommended and we couldn't resist.

The Fat Tui features wonderful, creative, and large "burgers." I had a fish burger and my wife the beef. Both came over stuffed with toppings (see the pictures) and were delicious. You order and pay at the counter then site at the outdoor tables to eat (or take your food elsewhere). Also a good selection of drinks, salads, and pizzas.... More

This is a covered open air food truck -- the burgers were huge and I loved trying the kumara fries. Not many options in Marahau, but this place is just perfect after a long day hiking in Abel Tasman. My husband had a lot of burgers in NZ, and this was his favorite.

We are a family of 9 and the pizzas were made and picked up in record time. Delicious meat lovers, margarita and Hawaiian. Awesome!
