Azura original 6/2015 Discovered across from the Azura restaurant we have frequented for lunch is another, reportedly the original, Azura. They are each owned by chefs who are brothers and offer a similar authentic Iraqi hearty dishes. We brought the daughter of a friend of ours there for an early dinner since the other Azura was closed. It turns out... More

Homey, traditional food, served with a smile in the best location a restaurant can dream of: the center of the Machne Yehuda market.

Good size restaurant in the Machane Yehuda market. We chose this place partially because we could sit inside in the air conditioning, but once the food arrived, we realized that the AC wasn't the main attraction. The food they serve has to cook for an extended time, so it is all prepared in advance, and we were served very quickly.... More

Authentic, delicious home-cooked flavor with a fun atmosphere in Mahane Yehuda shuk. Go hungry - there are a lot of great dishes on the menu. Kubbe soup, chickpea soup, hummus, mejadara, Turkish eggplant, moussaka are just a few of the really outstanding choices. We've been eating here regularly for years and have never been disappointed.

In a city as varied and tourist as Jerusalem, it is no problem to find good food, however it can be more of a challenge to find genuine local taste. This is it - a place that takes its products fresh from the market, resulting in very tasty (and heavy) food and low prices. Unfortunately it also means they run... More

AMAZING food. Be prepared for some incredible food but keep in mind that this is not a fancy restaurant, but rather a family owned establishment in the heart of the shuk. The Kubbe soup was amazing as were both dishes we ordered. Prices are very reasonable and you will not leave hungry. Despite the humbleness of the establishment, the service... More
