focus here is more quantity than quality with little effort in service. you get smashed your plate on your table and that's it. with a little more focus on details to what customers like, this could be a good burger bistro.More

It looked super promising but unfortunately it just didn't hit the mark for me. My bun was burnt burger was unseasoned. The kumara chips were the saving grace from this place and the staff were friendly! I wouldn't rush back though.

Soulburger is a gourmet burger bar with over twenty different options for you to choose from. Starting with our basic Classic burger and lil burgers for kids to the Lost Soul and the Magic Mushroom filled with all sorts for the hungry!
We hand make all our patties including our vegan patties and aioli sauce that not only goes on most of our burgers but is fantastic for dipping our extra tasty chippies in, seasoned with our secret spices.
We're a small restaurant and work hard to maintain an extra high level of quality by making as many of our sauces and fillings as we can on site.
We offer cold beers, wines and liquor drinks if you like to wash your burgers and fries down with a frosty beverage.
Whangamata is a famous surf beach and is an easy stroll to the sandy shores to see the action in the water, or just get your toes sandy and walk off an awesome meal.
Come visit us at Soulburger where our freindly staff will whip you up something to feed your soul!
