I love local unique food, and this was a perfect place to eat before we returned to the US! I had the Chicken Kabab's, so good, and my husband loved his food as well! (I think he had a dinner), bottom line great food and I was so glad we found this place. I know others will enjoy this family... More

Almaz Cafe felt like a homely place with very friendly staff and lovely food. However they did take a while to give us our food but for the most part it's a great place to eat.

They serve some of the best Turkish food you'll find in Auckland. What's also great is that it's not all "standard" Turkish menu items. For some reason, maybe location, it's never very busy, but don't let that put you off. Highly recommended, especially for something different to the usual Auckland cafe experience.

we were looking for a local takeaway that we hadn't tried before and Turkish sounded great. After reading reviews, we decided on mixed on rice and what a friendly welcome on the phone. After a little time of being hard to hear with a large group (having a great time) eating in, I was asked when I wanted it -... More

Almaz Cafe has large folding open windows at the front of the cafe and seats outside so you can watch the world go by in Onehunga. The food is amazing and well priced. The staff are very friendly. I have been here solo and taken friends and family here and they all love it.

Been there twice, once alone and once with a friend. They serve great Middle Eastern/Turkish food. I believe I had kebab with rice (correct me if I am wrong, as I am not really familiar with Middle Eastern food). I believe the delight of having rice after living in Auckland for 3 weeks is more overwhelming for me than having... More

I go to Almaz a lot! It is so tasty I could have the chicken on rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Staff are so friendly and I am never disappointed. Best Turkish in town in my opinion.
