The burgers at the Slow Leopard take some beating and the Kilis are always ice cold. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Normally a very relaxed atmosphere, but when there is live music the place is rammed. A great place to hang out and...More

In 2014 Henry and Eddie a Brit and a Kiwi respectively opened up The Slow Leopard. With a gourmet fast casual burger menu based on fresh and local ingredients they have been cooking up a storm. With an active bar showing all the big sporting events on the big screen its a great place to come and spend your time if you want a bite to eat or a cold beer!
