Nice to have Israeli food which is not very common in NZ. Good tasty flavours. Large portions so bring an appetite.

Incredible food with so much flavour, and so filling! Their hummus is without doubt the best I’ve had, and their falafel and chicken shawarma are incredible too. Great place, definitely recommend!

I was really looking forward to eating at the Fat Camel. I ordered Jerusalem Chicken Schnitzel. It looked good but the chicken strips were over cooked and dry. I was really disappointed. The service was good, they were very friendly. However, I was concerned that...no one asked us to show our COVID vaccine passport/certificate, but we did scan in. I don't know if there was a notice that says everyone is welcomed, I didn't see one, but then I wasn't looking for it either. If there had been, we probably wouldn't have gone.More

We visited on the strength of recent reviews and wanting something a little different...our dinner was excellent with well seasoned flavours, very fresh and well executed salads and good serving size. We had the 'Special Platter' with several dishes in one which proved an excellent...choice. Our waitress (from Belgium) was a star. Highly recommend.More

All the staff was soooo friendly, have us good descriptions of the food and fast. The atmosphere was really lovely and the food super interesting and really delicious. I shared the special platter with a friend and it was enough for us 2. all kinds...of meatiness falafel were on the platter and everything tasted really good and fresh. Also the baklawa dessert was really yammy and not too sweet.More
