We just wanted a good old steak meal. I had been checking out different restaurants in Whangarei and all had mixed reviews incliding the Killer Prawn. However, it was late afternoon and we decided to give it a go. Thank goodness we did! The food was perfectly cooked, the service was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Well done guys!

Killer Prawn is one of the best restaurants in town. Perfect for a special occasion or fun times with friends and family. It is all open planned with a bar attached if you're waiting for others to arrive. There is a tv on the wall above the kitchen - it was play the Commonwealth Games while we were there but... More

I have eaten at Killer Prawn many times in the past when in the area for business. Was my favourite place and one I previously recommended to others. This time around the magic was gone. The service was average and the few groups that were in the resturant were all jammed fairly well together in one area. This also meant... More
