Totally recommend going here to get a feed! Most amazing flavoured burgers and they're massive! Only downside is there's no BYO - next time we'll take our food down to the beach so we can enjoy a nice quiet beer with them.

Forgot to pack lunch for a kayak, a burger and ice cream sandwich hit the spot after a big workout. I'm a burger junkie, and this one did not disappoint. Messy and full of flavour. Marked down a bee's willy for the cookie on the ice cream sandwich not being soft.

I had a vegetarian burger, so many fresh ingredients and the taste was sensational! My husband is gluten intolerant and he had some good options.

We are lucky enough to live close by and after a long days work, there is nothing better than a FAT TUI. Be prepared though, its quality is boundless and you might need to wait a bit for its popularity. Enjoy the real Tui's in the flax and don't get hung up about it. its a destination!

A great little hut selling delicious, HUGE burgers. We had to split one. They also have chicken and veggie options, and even a vegan one, if memory serves. Fun place, friendly staff.

Huge burgers that were delicious. We also ordered 2 portions of chips between 2 but 1 would have been more than enough. Good outdoor seating and we had a lovely raspberry drink too.
