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

As wedding anniversary's go, the 14th isn't usually one of the big ones, but then everything changed with my darling's cancer diagnosis last year; and now everyday together is special. So to mark this particularly special Tuesday in September, we decided to treat ourselves to dinner at Killer Prawn - without the kids (that's the treat bit). And what a... More

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
