After wandering hopelessly around Chch for an hour trying to find somewhere in the centre to eat, we stumbled upon this place and couldn't have been happier we did. Great burgers, great beers, great value in a very cool setting. What more do you want?

We found this great little unusual place to eat. Basic food like burgers but so very tasty and the owner massively friendly and helpful. Shows how stoic and resourceful Christchurch residents are opening up such great places. Loved it there! Dined in the bus (the owner called it the fine dining area) and it was great.

Friendly staff and if you go on a Thursday night you will meet lots of locals with their motorbikes. It is quirky with the bar being and old bus. When it gets cooler they open up another bus which you can sit in. Went there every night as it felt really comfortable and I was travelling alone.
