“Best burgers on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

KuKu's Takeaway in Ureia has the best burgers I have ever had. She puts chutney on the delicious buns and WOW was it ever good. In fact, I bought chutney at the marketplace so that I can try it at home. The owner is a real sweetheart, also.

“Amazing little cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We stayed at Paparei bungalows right across the road from Kukus so obviously we were going to try it out. The verdict: delicous and very good value.

I can easily recommend a lunch at Kukus cafe, I tried Als burger and was very impressed. The iced tea was also a welcome beverage on a warm day.

We also hired a kayak from here which was excellent value at $20 per day.

“Authentic and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Great place with a friendly atmosphere. Had the fish burger a couple of times, yum! It's a great island cafe, not a place that makes you feel like you are still in Auckland.

“Kuku's Kool Kafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

A lovely little cafe with great food and good prices. I definitely recommend a visit here if you are in Aitutaki you wont be disappointed. The owner was there and she is lovely and very accommodating. Don't leave the island without a visit.

“Excellent burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This cute little cafe on the side of the road was a real island treat. We loved the burgers and the ice tea was just what we needed.
