About Us

Eat in...catering all over New Zealand...even fly with our food!

Established in 2010, The Kosher Deli, owned by the Auckland Hebrew Congregation, is more than just a shop. We are a cafe, we are a caterer, we supply the airline industry (in the days when you could fly), we have shlepp (take out) meals available and yes, it is all kosher.

Come and visit – whether it is for Israeli breakfast, lunch, latkes all year round, falafel, home-made bagels, mojo coffee or just meshuggah cakes and biscuits and snacks!

Who is Sam Lewis?

Sam, a Michelin star-trained chef, has been an integral part of our community in Auckland since 2018, bringing us all together through his culinary talents. Running The Kosher Deli is quite a responsibility for a 22-year-old but hospitality runs through his veins. London-born Sam arrived in New Zealand from the United Kingdom after four years at Michel Roux Jr's world-famous Le Gavroche restaurant in Mayfair. Being resourceful and talented helps but he has been driven by the newly-found passion he has for this country. Lucky for us, it looks like Sam is here to stay! Macher Sam has done his apprenticeship by hell and brimstone and has survived. He is now fully in control of The Kosher Deli, with Gretha from Brazil to attend to the front of house. An all-day menu has been revitalised with contemporary Yiddish friendly focus. The deli's home brand “Yes We Are Kosher” tastes fantastic and now we have schlepp bags, so you can order take-out. Please keep on visiting as we have new streetside and courtyard seating – with umbrellas and sun cream – and of course fab food and people you know and love!

Alvays you have the questions

Are you kosher? – We are, selling kosher kiwi, OU and other international foods. Everything is supervised by Rabbi Freidler.

Are ze latkes dry thin and crispy? – Knucklehead that's not a latke that's a rosti.

Can you deliver? – Does a chicken lay an egg!
