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.

I lived in Canterbury for 4 years and only ever went to Azouma in the evening, where it was pleasant and great food, but higher-end pricing, and as Canterbury has so much choice it's rare to go back to places regularly. However, now I only go to Canterbury for work, and I have discovered Azouma's lunch buffet, which is a... More

After messing them around with the timing of my booked table for 3, we were still greeted with smiles and seated at a very comfortable table, I felt at home! The young lady and the manager were just lovely! We shared a starter for 2 between us and there was ample. As a vegetarian, I was spoilt for choice and... More

I have eaten here many times for lunch buffet and the main menu and have always been welcomed and looked after. Tucked away so it feels quite secluded which works for this exotic restaurant but is also close to... More

I have visited Azouma a few times with my husband, the most recent being December 2014. Every time the staff have been attentive and polite. The menu is excellent, food delicious. I recommend the lamb cous cous. The sharing starters are very nice, lots of food though so go with a big appetite. The ambience is lovely especially if you... More

Came here after several other options in Canterbury were shut for New Year's week. Unsure what to expect the food and service here blew us away. We are all veggies and wife vegan and there were more options here including their nice lunch buffet that we've had in years. The owner made it clear if there was something that we... More
