The Tui has landed

The Fat Tui burger is world-famous in Nelson, loved by locals and visitors alike. After 13 years of serving original, delicious homemade burgers from our little kitchen caravan in Marahau, The Fat Tui has flown across Tasman Bay and landed on Trafalgar Street in Nelson for you all to continue to enjoy.

The Menu

We believe food is to be enjoyed. Our burgers are a hearty meal in themselves – massive, messy, and totally delicious! We make all of our yummy food on-site – the sauces, salads and patties, to deliver you a tasty, wholesome, homemade burger that is unique to our little corner of New Zealand.

Locally Owned

Established in 2007, The Fat Tui’s iconic Marahau burger caravan has been owned and operated for the past three years by Nelson locals Andy Thompson and Kaylene Walker. Before owning The Fat Tui, they owned Rainbow Takeaways in Stoke for 12 years – where they built a reputation for great food and excellent service. We take pride in making delicious food with quality ingredients that people love so much they just keep coming back for more.

New Location

Now situated on Trafalgar Street in Nelson, we have had an upgrade from the caravan kitchen to a newly fitted out kitchen and restaurant.

The Fat Tui has plenty of room for the whole family in our upstairs dining area with a view out onto Trafalgar Street – or if you’re in a hurry, you can order takeaway.
