The food is great. My favorite is the hamusta kubeh soup, however for first time visitors, the tasting menu is a good option--you get a bit of everything. Go early in the day because they run out of the tastiest options by dinner

This place is in a small plaza just outside the market. It specializes in stews and other slow-cooked dishes. Really delicious!!

excellent restaurant with authentic Iraqi cuisine. A little hard to find, not exactly where the address says it is but rather behind 4 eshkol st. Up the stairs behind the Iraqi shuk. Only open for lunch.

Our first adventure with Iraqi cuisine was unbelievable! We sampled several dishes family style and loved every one of them. The atmosphere in the middle of the Machaneh Yehuda is fantastic (especially on a Friday after). I'd give Azura a 6 if TripAdvisor allowed me to do so!

One of the best restaurants I've visited, a real gem hidden in the heart of the busiest market in the country, delicious food and reasonably priced

It always feels like you have a glimpse to a world before mass-cooking and instant food. It's a taste of the past with a slowly cooked food that consists from the most basic ingredients filled with a clear passion for home made dishes. Sufrito is the best one by far but everything there is purely delicious

I am really surprised by the number of negative reviews on Trip Advisor. My son and I ate at Azura today. This is a small restaurant in the Iraqi section of the Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem. My impression is that the food is wonderful; the restaurant is unpretentious and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is a really... More
