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!

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.

Whenever we go to Auckland we go to Velvet Burger. Their menu is great but keep an eye out for their new products. Well priced and yummy.

Velvet Burger has a wide array of choices for sandwiches, from a standard burger to those with lamb, chicken, etc. I got the Big Brown, which is basically a large double cheeseburger; it was very large (I couldn't finish it) but it was only "okay", not bad, but definitely nothing special; the meat is almost more of a meatloaf consistency,...

How many ways can you say amazing? I haven't managed to eat all the varieties but I'm going to try. Mouthwateringly good. Kumara fries and aioli, the Big Bro, Lamb and Venison burgers. We'll be back!

We found Velvet Burger by accident as we were looking for somewhere to have a casual dinner. The front of the café is misleading as once you walk through there is a large dining area out the back. The Velvet Lady burger was delicious with grilled chicken breast, bacon, avocado, cheese and a tangy velvet relish. My husband said his... More
