Eat here every week. Best value lunch in Whangarei. Love it. The stuffed pittas are only about 8 bucks and have all the salads and hummus and filling of your choice. Delicious. Their starter platter is to die for. The coffee is also good. And their baklava is yummy.

Reviewed February 12, 2014

I've always found the staff here to be friendly helpful and efficient.

The food is consistently tasty fresh and great value.

The venue itself is nothing flash but I quite like that about fat camel - a hidden gem

“Best Value in Whangarei (If not New Zealand)”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

New Zealand food can be expensive by world standards but not this place.
The Pita pocket at $8 cannot be beaten.
The pita is packed full of tasty freshness.
Since the Fat Camel opened in Whangarei, we seldom eat anywhere else.
You have to fly to Asia to get this much flavour at such a small price.
