The burgers were great, the service was quick and value for money you cannot complain. We had a burger at the Edgewater Resort which was smaller and not as nice for double the price. Definitely eat here with the locals. If you are planning on...More

Decent wholesome take away food at a good price. We stayed on board a yacht in Avatiu Harbour so this was right next door and we ate there several times. About the best of the takeaway food places we found on Rarotonga.

I've never been so full from just a cheeseburger! It was so delicious and cost me only $3.50 as I went in on their special day: Wednesday! Popped in a few more times over the week as we couldn't resist!

We ate here on Wednesday. Hawaiian burger was good, as was the vege burger. Chips are a generous size, the milkshake was also good. Would eat here again

Yum! And really well priced. Get off the resorts and eat these burgers instead. Paid $20 in a resort and just $5 here; and they were better.

Burgers were under-cooked and I got very sick, had to see a doctor. The cooks were teenagers who have no idea of what "food safety" is about. Won't go back and I live on Rarotonga.

Some friends recommended this place and we headed down one night when we didn't have anything else planned. Luckily for us, it was a Wednesday and a whole lot of the burgers were only $3.50 which was fantastic! There were so many locals lining up...More
