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 the place, then Shlomo and Idan's hospitality absolutely will. They make you feel welcomed. I will definitely come back here next time I am in Whangarei.

This place always offers great food, it make a great healthy meal which can also be ordered to take away. The staff are always accommodating and friendly which makes it an enjoyable experience. I would recommend this place to family and friends.

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 makes ME full! The pitas are amazing and they will never serve up a bad meal or coffee. I'd give it 100 stars if I could ;)

Good selection of authentic food at reasonable prices. Don't look for Quality st mall as it isn't on many maps, but down only alley off that part of Cameron st.

Well known and recommended by locals. Interesting meals and menu at very good prices. Lots of healthy menu options with salads served with all meals. The Pita Pockets took our fancy. They were so delicious we went back 4 times during our stay in Whangarei and we weren't disappointed. The staff were great and café is situated in a quaint arcade in the centre of town plus the bonus was excellent coffee and cake as well. Would highly recommend it as it is more than likely you will go there more than just the once.
