This is a small place, not very inviting, so I just ordered take away. Staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. Bursting with lots of different flavours, nice crunchy falafels, and everything just right. Wow. Good value, too.

2nd visit to this great little restaurant.... Glad to see it's still as good as the first visit and that prices are still quite reasonable... Very popular and doing a roaring trade. Great lamb Kofta .... 😄

Only a small place with a limited menu but the flavours are fresh and vibrant. So much ethnic food tastes totally compromised, this is very close to the real thing. Excellent value, friendly staff, it's a great little place. One of the delights of my NZ tour.

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.
