The reviews below were not exaggerated- it's essentially an offbeat, quirky little food truck on blocks in a very tiny hamlet on the beach adjacent to the Abel Tasman National Park. Despite an opportunity to easily benefit from a captive audience, the food is creative, delicious and fresh. This is what good food is about!

Not a sit-down restaurant as such, but the food is wonderful. Although it advertises as a sort of burger bar, they do lots of other wonderful food as well, and you can sit on the wooden benches to enjoy it. The burgers are out of the ordinary, and are highly recommended.

The Fat Tui offers excellent, massive burgers! I had "The Muss" an mussel patty with garlic aoli, tartar sauce, onions, carrots, avocado and red onion. The menu features a number of other exotic, and unexpected burger options, too! The venue itself is very cool. Meals are prep'd in, and served out of a big, old, stationary food truck that sits...

After a trek in the national park or after a day in a kayak you definetely need a good burger. The Fat Tui serves up some awesome burgers. They are big and full of passion - made by people that love food! All burgers are packed with fantastic condiments and will give your taste buds a happy ride. Nothing ordinary... More

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!
