This is a static caravan at Marahau beach. You order your fish and chips or various meat burgers then sit on long benches in the open to eat. A very good atmosphere, very friendly

Great burgers from this shack in a "Carpark" long wait but it's worth it! A must do in Abel Tasman. We will be back when it re opens.

You'd never know by looking at me but I've enjoyed many a burger in my time and this was definitely up there as one of the best. The choices were brilliant and they tasted amazing. Very very filling and tasty. I think it's probably best for my health that i live on the other side of the world from them... More

A great way to cap off your day after some activities. We tasted a couple of burgers and can't really say which one was the best - but they're all big! Cheers!

Move over fergburger (no idea what the hype in queenstown is about) - it is all about the fat tui! I had the Hau (beetroot, egg, pineapple, beef patty) my sister the Sparrows fart (!) which was like english breakfast in a bun. Both superb and freshly made with great salad and homemade seeded buns. About $14 each. A must... More

Don't leave Marahau without going to the Fat Tui, it is an absolute must! My hubby really recommends The Roar, a huge freshly made venison burger topped with lots of healthy delicious salad. He loved it so much he bought the t shirt! I opted for fish and chips which was also scrummy. They have a great selection so it... More

Superbly situated at the entrance to Abel Tasman National Park, this modest looking 'burger van' simply has to be visited. We ordered 'cow pat' and 'off the hook' burgers (respectively beef and local fillet fish), and kumara chips. The menu includes other burgers made of chicken, lamb, mussels, venison, and veggie. All items were cooked / constructed while we waited,... More

We had several people recommend this burger stand to us before we left for the south island, and I'm really glad they did. Friendly staff, fresh food, tasty toppings, and a really nice selection of burger options.

A fantastic little place in a van close to the entrance to Abel Tasman national park. My boyfriend and I shared the lamb burger and 'the Hau' cheeseburger. The burgers were really fresh and tasty, and absolutely huge - you do not need a side each!! Share the wedges though, they are scrumptious! Only downside was the wait, two coach... More
