A bit like Burger Fuel - big burgers, good selection of types, craft beer, friendly staff and bright premises. Loud music, but their main clientele is young people so they like that.

The burger itself was made up of a couple of thin overcooked patties and wasn't really enjoyable. I've had better burgers at McDonalds. But the service was the worst part: first, they failed to inform us of the offer of the day, and we ended up paying more for less food. Ok, mistakes happen, no big deal. But when we... More

The chicken sandwich and fries were good but the burgers were hockey pucks. Not what is expected at a burger joint.

Scrumptious, tasty and light...I don't know how it can be put together but it was. A burger done with top and fresh ingredients in a bun that feels light and right on your tummy. Flavoursome! Maybe the best eaten here for a loooooong time.

I really like the burgers here, but the bun is too big for its contents. I had to pick the edges off to enjoy it or I just kept getting mouthfuls of bread. Excellent chicken burger though and really yum chips!

It was helped by the fact that there was a "secret word" deal going. If you ordered a burger and say "barbecued as...", you could order a second burger free of charge. A patron told us about it while we were looking at the wall menu, but in fact we then heard the counter guy telling people anyway. So I... More

Good burgers. Reasonable price. Friendly staff. Very good value. Decided to go there based on Internet reviewers stated it one of 10 best burgers in Auckland - probably agree. Mine was very good. Definitely worth to try it if you around area.

Make sure you ask about the 'secret menu'! The Manburger is 4 patties - beef, lamb, venison & chicken. You have to try it!

I haven't had Velvet burger since I was a student at Otago which was a good 8yrs ago and it was exactly as I remember it! Very fresh ingredients, and the fatties are great! My wife had the animal rights burger which she really enjoyed as usually vege burgers are falafel or something equally as dry but this was a... More

Stopped in here late one night and the place had great service and good food. Not the cheapest place for a burger but top quality stuff so it's really well worth the cash.
