The day before we had lunch at Per Se, where we got 9 courses for $1500. Got that many different wonderful flavors in the "small" falafel salad plate at Azauri. Mrs. A kind of dragged us in, in a Jewish momma way, and it was fabulous. Don't be put off by the look of the place -- it is really,... More

This place is a true gem. It looks like w hole in the wall walking by and normally I wouldn't have thought twice to walk in. I came on a food tour and I was really impressed. We tried the Falafel! I am truly a fan and this is now a favorite of mine!

I met a friend here and had a terrific lunch and a lot of conversation with the owners--characters. It was so delicious, I decided I needed to take food out for the drive towards home the next day--what a smart move. I recommend the Shwarma--the perfect marinade.

We have been wanting to try this place for awhile now but kept coming into the city on saturdays when it is closed. Well, the wait was worth it! It is small but we got there Sunday afternoon after 1 PM and the place was emptying out. We snagged a table and my wife and I each ordered the swarma... More

My wife and I were given the name of the Azuri Cafe and were told to look hard as you could miss it. That part is true, it is easy to walk by. Once you have gone in however, you will not walk by it again. The cafe is not fancy but the food is superb.

With a mere 4 tables and a total seating capacity of ten, this postage stamp sized restaurant serves hugely delicious authentic (and kosher) Israeli delicacies. From the various appetizers and salads - we tried the hummus, red cabbage and Israeli salads, eggplant - all exceptional, to the main courses - the chicken kebab dinner and the shawarma in pita -...

Simply put: the best pita sandwich I have ever experienced! I had the gyro and my wife had the falafel. This tidy little hole in the wall serves fresh and perfectly executed middle eastern fare in the heart of Hell's Kitchen. Those attending a taping of The Daily Show will appreciate the convenience of Azuri Cafe.

When coming to this joint, don't forget to put a gloomy face. Food is excellent. Mr. Azuri is always entertaining ... especially when he tells jokes that no one understands. Again, the food is excellent.

The owner took our order, while taking other people's as well, made the food, and helped all the visitors feel attended too. Accept the lovely chat with the owner, I had a yumy soup, my son... More

We picked this lunch spot mostly based the reviews from here, and after another bout of tourists get somewhat lost in NYC we spotted it up the street from 10th Ave. We visited on a Sunday around 3-4 pm and we had the place to ourselves. Well, ourselves and the proprietor Ezra. He asked why we had sought out his... More
