Great lunch at azura with co-workers: humus and Tehina are excellent, then I had kima, fresh and tasty. Bread is soft and tasty. Lemonade is home made. Great location in the center of the market, but quiet little terrace

We had a wonderful lunch at Azura. We let the waiter decide for us what to ordered and it was fantastic! Highly recommended!

this is an 100 years place, in the hart of the Machane Yehuda market. the dishes are the classical Jewish Sefaradi cooking of the city. the service is good and quick (but they expect you to "eat and go"...).

Home cooked Turkish food, an institution at the Mahne Yehuda Market. Proved to be a delight. I had the Azura - an eggplant with spinach cooked over potatoes and onions. Excellent.

Monday, mid day. The restaurant is full, as always... but, we didn't need to wait too long. the restaurant is a simple one, with good and quick service. Don't expect to anything fancy, but you will get good food. The dishes are all good. Just pick from the menu and you'd like what you get. The Humus, Musaka, the house... More

Wow. Every dish tastes completely different and is unique. Great stews which were cooked just for you over night tenderly melt in your mouth. You must dine here at least once if you're around.

No complaints, great food, average prices, quick service. Went here for a bit of lunch after walking round the old and new city. Didn't plan anything just turned up. Enjoyed watching the old men sitting around and playing backgammon. Food very simple but well made and tasty. Price for two including beers less than £20. Recommend as somewhere to stumble... More
