On an automobile trip that lasted 23 days and covered a lot of territory, this was by far our most memorable restaurant experience. As other reviewers have mentioned, the portions are overly generous. I don't remember the Hummus, but the six different Turkish-Kurdish stews that simmer in pots, at least the two that my wife and I shared, were excellent.

I bought half a kilo of hummus in 40 shekels (which normally costs half) and it was the most horrible hummus I had ever eaten! (And I eat a lot of hummus) it was un fresh , sower and with too much water. I dont know how someone can destroy such a simple dish so badly but somehow they've managed... More

This casual restaurant is tucked away just off the Mahane Yehuda market; a bit hard to find, but well worth it. Many restaurants claim to have the best hummus in Jerusalem, which is an ambitious claim, and I can't vouch for it, but it was certainly wonderful here: fresh, warm, and creamy; it was a transcendent experience, as if I'd...

Azura restaurant serves authentic dishes from the turkish-kurdish cuisine. the food is great and the prices are low. many locals come there to eat reguraly and enjoy high end cooking for everyday prices. the location is in jerusalems main market (an experiance on its own...) and might be hard to find so dont be shy and ask locals for guidance....

We were walking through the market looking for a place to have lunch when we came across this restaurant. The waitress suggested the sofrito which was like a beef and potato stew as her favorite. I had the half order and was glad I did. The portion was generous and I needed help to finish the order. The flavours were... More

Azura is home cooking, rich, oily, heavy, hearty food at its best. Situated in the beloved and maze-like Mahane Yehuda market, just behind the "Iraqi" part of the shuk, it has ample outdoor and indoor seating. This place gets crowded on Fridays but otherwise it is worth visiting and you'll have no trouble finding a seat. The basic menu consists... More

This is a great restaurant in the Irakian market which is in the Mahane Yehuda market. Food is very good and casual. Whenever I get to Jerusalem I go to eat there. I recommend the Sofrito.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised. Small, no frills joint. Basically there is a small menu, all of "slow cooked" food. We had a meat and potatoes dish that I can't stop thinking about days later. They are only open til 5 or 6 pm.
