Small, intimate restaurant that has a real following in Whangarei. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is sometimes I feel like they put in to many sauces & tastes in there pita pockets that sometimes overpower it, but other than that I definitely recommend this place.

The Fat Camel is one of our go to dine out places when we feel like a bit of something special to eat and hang out. It's also a really nice place for coffee and cake. The quality food and warm service give it that special feel.

Wow this place is REALLY good! Interestingly, we chose the 2nd placed restaurant to eat at ( Suk Jai Tha being first on TA ) The fat Camel absolutely delivered today, Sunday. There were a few diners in and we were served very quickly. Outstanding flavours, well presented and very pleasant staff. Right in the heart of Whangarei city, very pleasant cafe type setting within a mall. Will not only recommend but go back as well. Streaks ahead of Turkish cuisine we recently had in Wellington, Cuba Street area ( renown for ethnic foods)

'fat camel' is a nice a la vista kind of bistro-type place with levantic middle eastern dishes made by israeli chefs. it has a family&friend kind atmosphere; the portions are generous with quality ingredients. my falafel had a peanutty taste as had the hummus and i wondered if this was intended or by mistake...we had to wait about 25minutes for our salad-dishes: a little bit too long for us. the place and staff are so personable that we wished that the food and service had this little extra as well to make it really outstanding.

A restaurant worth repeat visits.
Vegetarian choices are plenty.
One of the best falafel serving places. Falafel wrap is yummy.
Actually, one is spoilt for choice.
Friendly staff.
9 a.m. to 7 p.m. - 7 days a week.
Moderately priced.
Family friendly.
