Came here in 2010 and was blown away by the awesome service and superbly genuine menu and flavours.... It hasn't changed... If anything it's gotten better... Definitely a jewel of the NZ eateries...

In the north of New Zealand there are two superb Israeli restaurants - each tucked up alley ways. I've separately reviewed the Fat Camel (see other posts) which was great. This is a little different and also exceptionally good. Hummus was creamy with just the right amount of tahini accompanying it / sitting on it. I had the lamb shawarma... More

Other veggie options were available.as starters. Friendly and quick service. Pleasant tables in small precinct with other eateries. Google map suggests the cafe is on the corner of... More

We really enjoyed our lunch at Jerusalem Cafe. It was quite busy when we arrived, but the wait time was very reasonable. Service was friendly and staff took initiative to advice us on what may be too spicy for kids.
