We had a bit of a wait to get in, but the folks there are nice, and it didn't take too long to get a table. Well worth the wait! I tried a lot of hummus in Israel, and I think so far this is my favorite. My father had the hummus with chickpeas and I had the hummus with... More

Right off the Mahane Yehuda market, through the smaller Iraqi market you come across Azura. You know you've arrived by the group of hungry peers lining up for a vacated table. After a 5 minute wait we were led to a simple table with a plastic tablecloth over it. The menu was brought on to us by smiling Shani who... More

Azura is by far the best restaurant experience my wife and I had in our two week stay in Israel. Azura was recommended to us by our guide, Moki Schwartz, as one of his favorites.

If you want an authentic North African traditional food - this is the best. Not fancy, quick service, interesting food, Humus tahini and mojadara at their best. Not expensive .Try the delicious oriental young beef lungs: delicious. Just don't expect black tie service...

Amazing local authentic food spiced and fresh. All kind of various dishes includes soups, meat and many more. Happy and joyful atmosphere. Prices are fair but the only downgrade is that you have to pay cash. Highly recommended!

This place is one of the best home cooking places I know. Sometimes I just get into my car and drive 100 km for a good dish. When in Jerusalem be sure to visit the machne Yehuda market and have lunch in AZURA
