I'd liken the experience to eating out as a hungover uni student at a cheap takeaway- average but greasy goodness. We wanted to try it all so ordered the shared platter option (2x meat, 2x vegetarian) $42 for 2.

Pros:
-If you like Israeli cuisine you might be satisfied (I've had significantly better so I wouldn't rate this place)

Not so great:
-Rinky-dink chairs and tables
-Expect to be asked more than four times if you want drinks (I felt like that's where they made their money! There is good service, then there is badgering)
-Tight space with limited seating, tucked down a paved courtyard in central Kerikeri among other cheap takeaways

Overall my advice would be to skip this place and spend your money at the many other local great cafes/restaurants in Kerikeri - i.e. Wharepuke, Pear tree, Santeez!

We needed a fast lunch sinds all the other resto's where closing. This was a perfect stop. Lots off choice, super fast and good food.

During our trip through NZ, we had a hard time finding vegetarian food. Alas the welcomed sight of Middle-East kitchen and wonderful falafel and other delights of the Israeli kitchen. Café Jerusalem took us on a delicious trip and all with good service and for a great price. It was a really comfy place and we warmly recommend it. The dip plate was delicious as well. If you are in or pass Kerikeri, go there!
