“Good Chinese Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

The Buller Cafe is the only Chinese restaurant in town. It is split in to three areas and they are...1. Those who wish to Chinese Takeaways....2. Those who wish to have european takaeaways...... 3. Those who wish to have a meal on the premises in the small and very basic restaurant. The food is of a high standard and the cafe is easy to find on the main street of Westport.

“Best in the West Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

I too am a regular visitor to the Buller Cafe where my choice is the fresh homemade Roasted Pork Bums or Chicken and Cashew, and the famous 'Tonys' Chips made from potatoes peeled and chopped out back as the have been for maybe 60 years. A fantastic value for money, great food and very friendly family run business!

A good place to go if you are hungry and like Chinese food. also serves fish and Chips and you can buy fresh fish there as well.
pretty ordinary food but good if you are hungry and don't want to dress up and spend too much.
