Great for vegetarians. Their salads are so good, that you don't want to fill up your pita bread with felafel. My recommendation is to get a veg salad pita bread, with a felafel on the side.

I can highly recommend the Mediterranean Salad, super delicious! Falafel are yum as well. Not the greatest atmosphere to stay for a whole evening but the food is very good.

What a great find in Whangarei serving the very best Israeli/middle eastern food at reasonable prices. It would be hard to find somewhere that could better it. Service was top rate and very friendly right in the middle of town amongst other interesting restaurants

On our way north travelling around NZ we decided to have dinner at this establishment. The food was fresh and authentic, easily comparable to my homeland. The prices are very reasonable. Highly recommended.

We had a nice lunch here, pita pockets at a good price of $13 each. Good size and quite hearty. My only criticism is that some hot sauce or something on the table would be great for people who like to spice things up. But...More
