Great 'Za, but expensive

This would be an instant 4-star, with the big vegan selection for both pizzas and sides, cheese quality, and vibes, but the expense holds it back. Seriously, $30 for a regularly-sized 'za? Are you jerkin my gherkin? The huge pizzas are $50-60, which have a certain novelty to them, but there's no reason a regular pizza needs to be that costly.
Anyhow, I had the Vegan Princess, which was great, and stuffed portobello mushrooms on the side. I'll return again once I sell my house and can afford it.

Pretty good, busy place

Separate vegan section on the menu, lots of options. I got the vegan veggie and my partner got the vegan Princess. Both tasty pizzas, the medium pizza size is a bit small but that is the only option for the gluten free base. The toppings were only light so the pizza wasn’t awfully filling. Otherwise I enjoyed it. We had Winnie’s pizza the night before which was incredible and unfortunately Fat Badger’s doesn’t compare, plus Fat Badger’s is more expensive.

Good, but not great

We ordered a vegan margherita pizza and poutine for 2 to share, which was enough but only just. We ordered on ubereats and it was ridiculously expensive for what it was. The chips on the poutine were a bit undercooked and it was a bit bland too.

Pros: Nice pizza, Lots of options

Cons: Expensive , Average portion sizes

Nice to have a dedicated vegan menu. You can get two flavours on one pizza. The vegan poutine was a bit bland and homogeneous, I think plain fries would be nice. One medium pizza to share is a good size for two people.

Expensive but absolutely enormous pizzas

The large option would easily feed 4 people even without sides. But the vegan cheesy garlic bread is definitely worth getting as well!

Pros: Huge serving size!, Vegan cheese was great, Huge range of vegan options

Cons: Expensive-ish (NZD $55 for large vegan pizza)

Lots of amazing vegan cheese, adaptable staff

Got a 12" pizza (The Princess - vegan), cheesy garlic bread, and curry fries between two people, it was probably too much for both of us but ended getting through all of it because it was so good. They have very tasty vegan cheese and know to use a lot of it.

The kitchen was out of one or two ingredients/condiments but the staff knew good substitutes and had enough other vegan ingredients on hand that the meal was basically unchanged.

Not the cheapest but very filling for what you pay for, would be good for a large group or after an active day.

Delicious! ordered the vegan cheesy curry chips which were scrumdelum - ordered the large portion which was enough to share between two people on its own. Veggie badger with cheese is yummy - we ordered the 12” but the larger size looked huge! Fast and friendly service. If we come back to Queenstown we’ll visit again 😊

Always a good feed

I’ve been here before several times as before I went vegan. First visit as a began. All vegetarian pizzas can be made vegan for an extra $2. Vegan garlic breads and other vegan starters available too.

Tasty pizza, but there’s better in town

The pizzas here were pretty good, but for the cost I wouldn’t say I was amazed. Especially as it cost $2 to make it vegan, and that didn’t include vegan cheese for me as they’d run out. Furthermore, I found a piece of ham in my pizza when it came, so cross-contamination would appear likely. The good news is that they can swap something like feta for another topping.

Cons: Expensive, Cross-contamination definitely a risk

Nice pizza!

They have a vegan menu. The big size pizza is huge. Flavours are interesting, not very traditional. Garlic bread is actually a garlic pizza, sometimes too salty for me. If you go there on a crowdy day, you'll probably have to wait a lot. Staff is friendly, but they get busy!

Pros: Big pizza ends up being $ convenient, Vegan menu has more than pizza, Tasty food

Cons: Vegan options are more expensive, Big pizza gets cold before you eat it, Too much salt, not very healthy

American Style Pizza

Very yummy pizza, can buy 12” & 22” pizzas with options to make the vegetarian pizzas vegan. They don’t always have vegan cheese available. On site bar with there own beer. It isn’t the healthiest pizza! So be careful how much you have!

Pros: Great value for money.

Cons: Vegan Menu not always available.

Good vegan cheese

We got a pizza with vegan cheese and vegan garlic bread (with vegan pesto!). Both were tasty, and different from other pizza places (cheese was more like cheddar flavor than mozzarella, but still worked well for us). Thin crust pizza (garlic bread was thin crust too, kind of like garlic & cheese pizza without tomato sauce).

Cons: Vegan options not on main menu.
