We never have tried Israeli food before. They provided us quite good meals. We tried a 'fat camel special plate'. They recommended us this for a beginner. They were enough to both of us to enjoy. The coffee was very good as well. I think this place is good for everybody.

We are so in love with our Fat Camel meals that we come every week, and sometimes twice a week to eat. In particular, we love the falafel pita and the spicy chicken pita. Each layer brings a new, delicious flavour! Highly recommend Fat Camel! And their prices are super reasonable too!

We booked a table for 16 for a surprise dinner for a friend. The food was fresh, flavoursome and delicious. Everyone walked away full and content with healthy food. The staff are so friendly and accommodating too. Really enjoyed our night there. We also have lunch and coffees there and are never disappointed.

For Israelis - this place will make you feel like home. For everyone else - this place will make you love Israel and its food. I had here one of the best falafels I've tried in Australia and NZ (if not the very best). The rest of the menu also looked very tempting. If the food doesn't make you love... More

In LOVE with the fat camel! You probably won't find anywhere else in town with staff so friendly & food so yummy! Sometimes I just sit there for hours on end eating/drinking/chatting. 100% guarantee you will love this place & they will make you feel very welcome. I am an adult but get the kids grilled chicken meal and it... More
