A Metro top 50 restaurant: “Ima Bistro is generous in every sense: of spirit, serve, colour and flavour.” (for 2012 & 2011).
The delicious & fresh Mediterranean/Israeli cuisine has influences ranging from Greece to Dubai!
Food is made in-house on the day to create the freshest quality possible.
Owner-operator, Yael, who was recently left “absolutely buzzing” after celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay chose to eat his lunch at her Israeli restaurant*, is bringing back her breakfast menu & hours, in addition to Lunch and Dinner!
The Ima Cuisine philosophy is: “good food creates happiness”
Plus, you will now be able to enjoy a longer lunch till 2:30pm. The dinner menu will then start at 6pm and finish later at 10pm, to allow those in the city to stop in straight after work, and for show-goers to grab a meal before or after a Vector Arena or Maidment Theatre show.
Dine-in or Takeaway. See you soon!

She said she makes it at home herself – for lunch, or breakfast, or dinner – any time of day. I thought it was like an Israeli version of of a very hearty Kiwi fry-up. But it comes in semi-liquified form, served in a deep frypan, and with eggs poaching and swimming in beautiful rich tomatoes. So you dip the toast into the mixture to load great gloops of runny golden egg yolk onto your hunks of bread.
Smiley, helpful service. A bohemian feel to the decor. I liked it.
My father and I order the stuffed chicken leg and my partner got the lamb. I think they were $31 each. The chicken itself was ok and had a lot of flavour when you incorporated the stuffing otherwise it was bland. The “sauce” it came sitting in and the couscous were incredibly watery and bland and needed a lot of salt and pepper.
The place was full when we left but I don’t think we’ll be returning as you can get some really tasty meals in Auckland for under $30 per person and they have some flavour!
