Beautiful Burgers

After a full day of hiking at Abel Tasman we were ready for a burger. Fat Tui had just what we wanted. Their burger menu is very creative. The presentation is colorful and beautiful. I had the Muss, which is a burger patty made of local mussels. They add fresh vegetables and delicious sauces. They... read more

Bouyed by my TripAdvisor research, I expected great things from this burger van when we visited over Easter. We looked forward to it on our long trek through the utterly gorgeous Abel Tasman park, and collapsed gratefully on the picnic tables after placing our order. It wasn't very full. We discovered later that everyone was basked in the garden at... More

Fat Tui was about the only option in town in the shoulder season on a late weekday afternoon, what a great surprise. Fabulous food, the best veggie burger I've ever eaten. All the food was great, friendly staff and comfortable location. We all loved it. Definately worth a visit.

Whilst in Abel Tasman recently we stopped to try out the Fat Tui in rival to the Fergburger. We had the 'plucked chicken' satay marinated and the 'cowpat' an all the trimmings classic. Both burgers were above expectations, having previously tasting the Fergburger I'd agree with others that say The Fat Tui is just as tasty. They were fresh, full... More

Recently had burgers at Fat Tui, burger van, seriously good cowpat burger and the Mussel patty burger is also great. These burgers are the best we have tasted in New Zealand, shame they close in the winter!

We were staying at a lodge walking distance from here and we're really glad the lodge staff told us about this place, because wow! The burgers are HUGE and really good, perhaps even the best burger I've had in New Zealand. I love that they have the traditional and the out-there choices too. We had the mussel burger (forget its... More

In three days we ordered meals out 2 days and came here two days for morning flat whites and muffins. We loved this place--delicious fish and chips, lamb burgers, hamburgers and fish burgers Downside is no alcohol sales or consumption in their outside dining. We solved this downside by taking our food back to our lodging and ate it with... More
