Southern haven in the inner city

Thunderbird is fully licensed funky southern themed cafe in the heart of the city, between Panama and Brandon Streets. We serve a range of wines and beers and also provide a wide range of non-alcoholic drinks such as juices, soft drinks and our famous milkshakes.
Thunderbird can provide catering to businesses in the area and can also be available as a function space for private or business events in the evening.

Our Food

Thunderbird's food displays influences and
flavours from Southwest USA and Mexican cuisine, comingled with NZ favourites. We try not to pigeonhole the style of food too much, relying more on flavours and combinations that we hope the customers will enjoy. We slow cook and make all our sauces and pickles.

We Have Gigs
