Oh wow! Seriously one of the best meals I've had in memory. I live hours away and only stopped here on my way through, but I will definitely be looking for an excuse to come back! The food was tasty, spicy, beautiful textures and just all over great!

Perfection. The meat platter for two fed two with plenty left over. It could easily feed four people with minimal left over. Can not fault this food or service!

Adam Crowe

This restaurant is awesome. Amazing authentic food, made from scratch by the Israeli owner.

Anthony Gatley

I can see why this place is so highly reviewed. Our dinner tonight was great. Amazing dips and fried cauliflower.

Bustling, busy little restaurant on the main street. The food was fresh and tasty when we are lunch at 1430. We were able to score a table outside. A man (who we think is the owner) was a very happy and friendly chap.

Quite possibly the best thing I have ever had the pleasure of eating. We tried the Sabich pocket with chips and mushroom Malawach and have not stopped thinking about it since. Looking for investors to help bring this gem to the Sunshine Coast

Came here for lunch, ordered the meat platter $50 plus cauliflower dish $10. Filling and tasty for 2 people. Hommus was delicious and the olives and sides great, meats good, falafel. Took a bit of time to get our meal and the value for money on this dish is maybe a little expensive. Really enjoyed it though and the quality is high


Authentic middle eastern food, kofta delicious, salad fresh. Highly recommendable.

Wow!!! Best falafels I’ve ever had. Definitely make your way to this cute little Middle Eastern Kitchen! The food is so fresh, and the staff are super friendly and sweet. Will definitely be back!

Andrew Kinnear

Delicious middle eastern cuisine - and all really fresh. The falafel was freshly cooked - the owner nicely letting me taste one before I had ordered - made my mind up! Great option when in Bellingen.

The best felafel/pitta/Middle Eastern food I have ever eaten, hands down. The softest pitta, crunchiest felafels and creamiest hummus. The serving sizes were so generous and filling. I had the hummus and felafel bowl and my partner had the pocket with eggplant and boiled egg which was so good. A must visit when in Bellingen, will 100% be coming back. The service was so friendly too :)

Menashe Salomon

Great food! Fresh Israeli salad. Every order was 5 stars. It is the best Humus I ever had in Australia!!

Nutan Sood

Amanda Burns

Tasty delicious Middle Eastern food. Falafels are delicious, & dips were yum, to be honest all the meats were yum too. Had the share plate for two, good serving sizes. Service was friendly. My partner & I thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
