    The BBQ pork burrito was amazing and if you're looking for a lighter option the Texas Tosser was a delicious salad with some naughty fried chicken thrown in. Don't muck about, get the Frings to share

    Terrible service during wellington on a plate. Food was not worth the wait. Apology not forthcoming either. Disappointing...

    Shit service and given wrong food. On a plus side the wrong food was nice even if it took 30mins to turn up. Avoid this place for lunch.

    To be honest, everything is brilliant. Nicci is just lovely, the food divine. Thunderbird Chicken and curly fries outta this world.

    Thunderbird is not your typical cafe but that's what makes it so appealing. Combinations of tasty, different food and warm, familiar service make it one of the best Wellington currently has to offer. Read more
