The Sea Salt takeaway is our go to takeaway on Raro. Its always open when we need it and always yummy. Its a little slow at times - especially if there are more than 3 tables. If you have a time limit - you should make sure to ask the girls at the counter how long a wait it is... read more

We decided to stop and give this place a chance and see for ourselves. We had fish and chips for lunch. Service was good. You place your order at the counter and they... More

We came back several times at different times of the day throughout our trip to try a variety of foods! The works burger was deliciously divine! My husband is usually fussy but said the works burger was to die for, just the right amount of flavour and it's a must try!!! The island burger was good too, nice and crisp... More

Friendliest burger stop ever! Loved our fish burgers - great price and nice casual stop near the Marina. Meals didn't take long and were tasty.

The fish is delicious. Fresh, succulent and with a light, crisp, seasoned batter. The chips were undercooked and had no salt with none available to add. For fish, this is great but for burgers or chips head across to Palace.

Very good, clean take away joint on the main street of Avarua. Awesome variety of food and great shakes. Also a Telecom Hotspot so an added benefit.

If travelling with teens who will only eat takeaway type food, this fitted the brief for my teen, we had to eat here several times. Huge burgers that were yummy, friendly staff. Value for money compared to other similar eateries.

Ordered a kids cheeseburger $4 and asked to add onions which became a $5 burger - hubby asked specifically for a thick shake and got a thin milk shake .. My cheeseburger appeared to have that cheese from a can (yuk) with approx 4 strands of onion .. Needless to say we didn't return.
