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.

My boyfriend and I decided to be adventurous for a night and dine at this restaurant we had walked past on several occasions.

Been here on several occasions - lunch buffet is brilliant, lots of choice and great fresh food at a very reasonable price. Had one Evening meal so far, which was fantastic - one of my favourite restaurants at the moment!

Went in a group of eight. Only one couple and I had experienced this type of cuisine before. We had a wide variety of the dishes on offer and all of the party were impressed - and would visit again. Service was spot on, attentive without being over bearing. A great find!

Nice food and very good service but please fix you toilet door. I had to LIFT IT to close it and I do not expect that in an upmarket restaurant.

Gorgeous food! I had some little cheese pastries to start which were tasty and beautifully cooked. For mains I would highly recommend the fish tagine. It was perfectly seasoned and I was served a generous portion, which was piping hot in a nice clay dish. Very authentic! I also had some Mediterranean couscous on the side, which complimented my meal... More
