Fantastic restaurant either for dining alone or with family. It is my favourite restaurant in Whangarei and I go every time I am visiting the city. Sometimes I even go out of my way to visit Whangarei just so I can eat at the Fat Camel! The falafel and hummus are divine and the pita is perfection. On a nice day, there is a lovely courtyard to sit in too. Great for kids too - mine love the falafel and rye fries. The owners are wonderful too.

Not impressed. Despite checking OK for vegetarians the starter had meat in it. Had a glass of wine, it was off and vinegar tasting. To be be fair they did change it from a fresh bottle.
Part of the meal arrived a long time after the rest and only after being reminded. It sounds trivial but spoils the whole meal experience.
Food that we did have was passable but no more.
Had intended to have desserts but decided to cut our losses and not bother.

It was a Sunday night, maybe they are better on week days.

The food was very fresh.
It was very tasty and was presented really well.
The pita falafels were a decent size and we were very happy with the mezze platter as well.
