I didn't eat here, so can't judge the food. Had a caffe or a cappuccino sometimes, and they were standard quality. Friendly atmosphere anyway.

This little cafe in Whangarei's Quality street has been churning out consistently good Falafels and other Israeli fair and decent coffee to go along with it. A nice place for lunch when in town.

Food was quite ok. Pre-cooked. Nothing really special. Wine (red, Pinot Noir) was a bit too warm but ok. Service was very friendly. Unfortunately we had to sit outside, as they forgot our reservation we placed 3 months ago (was probably a bit too long)...

Been here a few times. On the whole the food is excellent. However, on my last visit the falafel was very salty. Which was a shame. But I would still recommend.

Great food, really enjoyed the dinner plates and they have some delicious kebabs. It was always takeout but the seating area looked nice and comfortable
