Description: Azouma, a Moroccan/Lebanese restaurant located on Church Street in Canterbury, is a calming haven from the bustle of every day life. The traditional dining room, decorated with lanterns and throw cushions, is perfect for romantic dinners, relaxed business lunches, family get-togethers and fun celebrations. The exotic menu at Azouma features regional dishes from Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Syria and Turkey – favourite dishes include the succulent Tagine Djej Bzetoun – slow-cooked chicken with piqant lemon and olives; and the Samakeh Harrah – sea bass baked in traditional Lebanese style. There is also a wonderful selection of mezze, delicate cous cous dishes, spicy char-grills and delicious pastries, all complimented by fine wines and beers from Arabia and North Africa.

Seriously yummy food. Major problem ... We all ate too much and I am fit to burst now! Had mixed entrées that we shared and then I had the lamb tangible with pineapple and prunes. Nice hints of cinnamon. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

I was so pleased to find this hidden gem whilst staying down in Canterbury for a friend's wedding. Moroccan food is a rarity up North!! The food was excellent. We shared a vegetarian meze platter to start, followed by chicken couscous. The portions were generous and it was great to try Moroccan beer. The service was great and the restaurant... More

Chose this Restaurant for a night out with friends who are Vegetarian as it has a good choice of Vegetarian options and looked a bit different. Friday evening was a good choice as they have a free Belly Dancer at 8pm who is really good - the men enjoyed tucking £5 notes in her waistband!. We started with cocktails, then... More

Visited this restaurant on Wednesday night with a colleague. We both ordered 2 courses for £12.95. All the food was of very good quality freshly prepared and served promptly. The service was particularly good with happy, friendly staff. I have recommended to friends and will visit again next time I'm in Canterbury.

We arrived here at 1:40 pm on bank holiday for my husbands birthday.We were advised to go for the lunch buffet rather than ala carte as all the dishes were available at the buffet as well. That was a big mistake. The buffet was practically empty with just a couple of dishes still available. We literally had to scrape the... More

A perfect place for a romantic dinner. Outstanding service. A comfy place where you can enjoy your meal and relax with some music on the background. My favorite dish: chicken shaworma and red wine. Acceptable prices for that type of restaurant and great atmosphere. The waitresses are helpful and very nice. Definitely I'm going back with my boyfriend for another... More
