“Awesome GF vegan food!”

Timbuktu Nomadic Deli
Price range: US$1 - US$10
Description: Our business is a takeaway food outlet with a focus on cabinet food rather than made to order dishes. We have a core component of regular dishes on offer as we recognise the need for our customers to have familiarity but at the same time as the opportunity to try new culinary experiences. In addition to our daily dishes which showcase a spectrum of the most popular street food from around the globe, we also have the ongoing fortnightly "destination location" During each showcase period we explore the local foods from that location.

Having seen the reviews we decided we must visit this place on our tour of the island.

The service was extremely friendly and we were surprised to find so many varied gf and vegan options. We opted for 3 things. A butternut salad, an aubergine and chickpea dish very reminiscent of a good Indian sarso baigon, and a simple beetroot salad. All 3 were wonderful!

We also sampled the gf vegan pistachio cookie and truffle. Both very nice too.

The owner (Willow?) gave us several recommendations for places to go for dinner and a hug as we left.

Brilliant place and a must-see

Searching desperately for somewhere to eat that was kid friendly, with gorgeous fresh food and a great atmosphere. We found you by accident and so glad we did. Definitely worth the trip.

The service at Timbuktu was warm and friendly.
The VEGAN food was excellent!!!!
We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of choice of vegan food, not half expecting to find vegan food at all.
The added bonus of the food being absolutely delicious was an extra extra bonus!!

Lovely Arab/West African styled cafe in the centre of Waiheke. One of the few places to eat I've found anywhere in the country with a good selection of veggie/vegan food; my Tarka Daal was excellent!
