Husband and I hadn't booked, didn't take too long for them to seat us. We both had steak and were not diasppointed, cooked just the way we like it! No room for dessert but our neighbours all seemed to enjoy the cheesecake. If someone in your group is celebrating a birthday...the staff do a great celebratory surprise! Great experience.

I have been fortunate enough to eat at this restaurant a few times and am finally getting around to writing a review! I most recently went there in December and was excited to try out their new menu. I couldn't rate this place high enough - It is a big favourite among the locals here in Whangarei with a fantastic... More

I've been to Killer Prawn several times over the years for both lunch and dinner. Since 2006 the cuisine has been superb and the service has been good - although it can be a bit delayed depending on how busy the place is. Killer Prawn is in the same league as A' Deco and Tonic. Killer Prawn has a superb... More

One of the most delicious meals I've had and excellent service. Price reflects this so we'll only be dining here for very special occasions.

This restaurant offers delicious food in a charming atmosphere. Good portions and good quality! And they DO make good drinks, I recommend the long island iced tea!

A group of work colleagues and I recently had dinner at Killer Prawn and were extremely disappointed in both the food and service. Personally, my fish meal was small and served on very dry rice which tasted old. When one of my colleagues complained to the manager about his steak, the manager was very rude. Also, there was no atmosphere... More

Group of 6 for a business dinner. I am not a seafood fan - this being the speciality of the house, but my steak was excellent. My colleagues all had various seafood meals including a newly introduced entrée (shrimp?). All said they were very happy with their meals. There were few people in the house, so we had lots of...

I love this place, the atmosphere is always busy, the food and service is always very good. However the only downside is that it is a little expensive for Whangarei.

we enjoyed our meal, but found it expensive for what it was and very loud we couldn't really hear each other talk, so we probably will never go back there again, service was average... I just cant say there was anything memorable about our experience at killer prawn...

We arrived at the restaurant at 7:30 pm for a drink and then some dinner. The guy behind the bar was great (Had a close shaved beard, he will know who he is) told us that there was a 20 minute wait for a table which we were happy about as we wanted to have a drink first before we... More
