From the sounds to the mouthwatering smells from the kitchen, Cafe Jerusalem doesn't disappoint. A Middle Eastern dining experience which includes jewelery, apple tea (love Apple Tea) and a great turkish coffee...as well as the most delicous food!!!

A very good choice for lunch. Meatballs were yummy and had delicious spicing. Lamb delicious and great Shashuka, and nice sides. Also had some hummus to start which was smooth and well flavoured. Eat here every time we come to Kerikeri and have never had a disappointing meal.

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
