We stopped here before the All Blacks test and just beat the rush. Our burgers were big, wholesome, juicy and tasty and came as part of a $20 deal including delicious fries (or thick cut chips) and a beer. Phenomenal value. There's great seating downstairs and it's right in the heart of town. These are proper gourmet burgers done right.

Pre rugby chaos with 30-40 people in the que.... however the burgers were still perfect. Staff were extremely busy coping with huge demand yet the food was still 100% . Only negative was that downstairs bar was closed, which was a management oversight as there was huge demand for more drinks by rugby supporters, but no-one was prepared to re-join... More

Great burgers, big and tasty! If you're a big eater you can get chips with your burger, otherwise a burger is enough. There's a great selection of beers, including Emerson's and Epic.

Whataburger, dammm!! Extreme to the max!!!!!!! Our cricket team had a bet to see who could eat two on the trot, we failed miserably, except for one. But to be fair he could eat a horse and still ask for dessert,lol

It's been too long between Velvet Ladies. Just as good as I remember. Outstanding. Almost stay another night in Duners on business to justify another Velvet feast!

I remember when velvet burger was worth paying a bit extra for a decent burger. Now all you get is crap meat with one slice of tomato and cucumber cut in half, lettuce and some sause. No pride in their work, just how popular the staff are....and thats if they get the order right without burning it or not timing... More

Located in central city, this tiny little place is very much worth stopping by. Friendly and quick service was provided. I had the velvet burger, and it was definitely the best I've ever had (much better than the fergburger in Queenstown). Will surely go there again on my next visit!

Service is quick, servers are friendly and efficient. Burgers are seriously scrumptious, but not for the faint-hearted if you get the full size. 'The Stag' comes highly recommended- made of venison and delish! Tuesdays are always a big hit with the student community, as if you have the secret code from Velvet Burger's Facebook page, you can get 2 for... More

Rip off. Rubbish service, rubbish burgers. Over priced for worse than MacDonalds. Expected quality, great taste and good service from such an establishment but this was garbage. never again.
