Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Food an absolute surprise. Stumbled onto restaurant in little street in town and had a great evening. Food beautifully presented, and amazing flavours. Well worth a second visit.

Had a meal out with a group of workmates. The location is great, very central with good parking available. The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice. The staff were attentive. We ordered some mixed entree platters which were nice so no problems there. My problem came with my main meal, I ordered chicken and cashew tagine with couscous. It smelled... More

I was really really impressed with this restaurant. I've lived in Whangarei so I left it a long time before I decided to try this out, not sure why! I wasn't really expecting a lot but I was left pleasantly surprised when it was actually one of the best meals in a restaurant of that level. It was fantastic, you... More

Love this Middle Eastern restaurant in Whangarei, in Quality Street (a cute little cobblestoned street, with a super selection of restaurants.) Incredible & authentic flavours! The Moroccan lamb tangine was incredible! Better than tangine I've eaten in Morocco many times. The tabouleh exceeded my expectations (it rarely tastes this good in NZ!) The tabouleh tasted as if I was in... More

Service and decor were very good, some dishes are first rate, others leave room for improvement. The house wines and their entree bread were very good.
