This place is absolutely delicious. One of my favorite spots to dine at around this part of NZ overall. The burgers are fresh, tasty, and huge! The oyster burger is by far my favorite.

The Fat Tui is an awesome little place! We visited as a group of three, one chicken satay, one Moroccan lamb and one fish burger. All agreed that they were excellent! Definitely coming over again!

I cannot accurately put into works the pure epic experience that the Fat Tui provides. It has been some time since I last visited, but I will never forget the burger or the people. Go there, eat as much as you can, go back.
