The Mediterranean Kitchen

The Dining Lane, 43 Bryce Street (outside CentrePlace). Hamilton, 3204 New Zealand

Open 7 days a week, 11am–10pm.

The Dining Lane is in the heart of Hamilton and features four diverse restaurants, each with exclusive indoor and al fresco dining areas, convenient parking on-street and in the CentrePlace carpark with parking validation and free parking options day and evening.

The Mediterranean Kitchen famously goes for ‘flavours, not heat!’. The owners are Adem Görğülü, who has had extensive experience working in hospitality both on the Aegean coast of Turkey and in New Zealand, and Sheryl Entwistle, a longtime Cornucopia reader, who writes:

Turcophiles would love our special dish, Sultan’s Delight (İmam Bayıldı, smoked eggplant with lamb), and Capsicum Dolma.
