The delicious Eastern Mediterranean food offering here is crafted and inspired by the food Yael (the owner) grew up with in Tel Aviv, Israel. It is driven by seasonal produce, and of course the desires of their beloved customers, continuing the natural, slow food mantra that takes pride of place at Ima.

Taking a seat in this eatery you will immediately be transfixed by the evocative smells from the kitchen. Everything here is made fresh daily in the deli and the result is a room filled with the aroma of freshly baked pastries, spiced brioche, scones and slices.

They are also Auckland-famous for their hot cross buns! These are available in the 8 weeks leading up to Easter - we highly recommend placing an order so you don't miss out!

Ima Cuisine is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

$65 for a three course dinner

Menu includes Mezze - Fresh pita bread with falafel, a selection of dips, tabouli, olives & pickles, Lebanese lamb shoulder and kanafeh levantine for dessert.
