Grabbed a couple of burgers from here... They were ok but not what I was expecting for the price paid.... Definitely not a "gone burger" standard. The beef patty was thick but lacked seasoning and the rest of the filling was a little un loved.... Not bad but just ok.

We are here this evening because it was the only place we could find open on a Friday evening at 8.20pm. Burgers were nice but only bottled beers available which were quite expensive.

Accidentally came across this burger place. We really loved the food, the burgers were great and they had a wide choice of vegetarian options. Absolutely recommendable!

Best burgers I have ever had and a wide range of 'inners'. Not for you if one is looking for a cheap burger but a good meal.

We were told 15 to 20 min wait for our reasonably large order, which was fine so we went for a walk to kill time. However 50 mins later we still didnt have our order. People who ordered after us were coming and going.... Staff seemed easily confused and in a state of disarray. When we finally got our order... More

The burger was delicious the gluten free bun was amazing I had never tasted anything like it in 5 years since not consuming gluten. The staff... More

Stopped in here on our last night in Whangamata. Great, friendly staff, super on to it and service was speedy considering there were five of us and all had minor changes to our take away burgers. I ordered one of the steak burgers and unfortunately this was cheap and chewy ! The rest of my group ordered normal beef patties... More

I regularly visit Whangamata with a group of friends and every time we make sure we stop at least once at Soul Burger. Absolutely delicious burgers, filled with flavor. Good quality food.

Went to Soul Burger as a group over the weekend, the service was fast considering it was very busy! I have 'The Whanga' burger which was amazing, and tastes super fresh & juicy! I would recommend it. Overall a good place to eat in Whangamata, you would definitely need to be hungry though, because those burgers are HUGE.

Soulburger is a gourmet burger bar with over twenty different options for you to choose from. Starting with our basic Classic burger and lil burgers for kids to the Lost Soul and the Magic Mushroom filled with all sorts for the hungry!
We hand make all our patties including our vegan patties and aioli sauce that not only goes on most of our burgers but is fantastic for dipping our extra tasty chippies in, seasoned with our secret spices.
We're a small restaurant and work hard to maintain an extra high level of quality by making as many of our sauces and fillings as we can on site.
We offer cold beers, wines and liquor drinks if you like to wash your burgers and fries down with a frosty beverage.
Whangamata is a famous surf beach and is an easy stroll to the sandy shores to see the action in the water, or just get your toes sandy and walk off an awesome meal.
Come visit us at Soulburger where our freindly staff will whip you up something to feed your soul!
