We were on our way out of town and decided to loop back and find this food caravan after they left a flyer on our car window. Very well priced and amazing food! The staff were very friendly and even accomodated us only having eftpos which we were very grateful for. Scollaps are a a must have and the salmon was just as amazing! Would make a trip back just for this!!!!

If you want to eat crayfish (lobster) in New Zealand without paying an arm and a leg, this place is IT! The surrounding is not fancy (just the roadside), but the food is good and cheap (by NZ standard). The grilled crayfish came out perfectly.

We took away half a crayfish with rice and so-called salad: it seemed quite expensive for what it was. The crayfish was already cooked and all they had to do was to show it the grill so at least we didn't have long to wait. I couldn't honestly recommend it to anyone though this place is supposed to be world famous.
