We went on a Saturday night and the restaurant was largely full with a buzz of conversation from the various tables. The service was spot on, always on hand when needed and very welcoming overall. The food was extremely tasty with portions on the large size. Cost was just over £60 for two courses for two people including a couple... More

First impressions were that this was a nice restaurant which was decorated in a Turkish/Lebanese style. The staff were lovely and very helpful and the first course of mixed mezze was very yummy. Suddenly the traditional music went up on volume and out if nowhere came a full on belly dancer wiggling her stuff. Great surprise and added to an... More

I love popping into Azouma to meet friends for lunch. We just love it. Great food (and an amazing choice across starters, mains and desserts), great atmosphere, friendly staff and very reasonable prices - even when you add in the drinks and the service. I just can't fault it! Love the place and will be back when I am next... More

Really good Mediterranean food, good service at reasonable prices. Warming house red to knock back alongside mouth tingling treats.

This is my favourite restaurant anywhere at the moment, really delicious food and friendly, family like feel to the welcome and service. I was pleased to find also some interesting non-alcoholic drinks, a lovely salted yoghurt drink and non-alcoholic cocktail, as well as some nice wines of course. The vegetable cous-cous with halloumi was excellent, the vegetables are really tasty.... More

Visited Canterbury last weekend with my girlfriend and looking for something more exotic than the numerous chippies around, we went to Azouma; the place looks lovely with authentic ethnic décor, staff were friendly and the food was excellent. I would especially complement them on the good range of vegetarian food available, not something you always find at restaurants, and I... More

Came upon this restaurant by chance. Popped in at lunch time without any expectations as passing and hungry. Pushing open the antique fortress-style metal door I found a lovely Moroccan themed restaurant with helpful and pleasant staff. Buffet style "eat all you can" lunch which was extremely good value. Wide choice of main course dishes which also caters for vegetarians.... More

We had the buffet, felt like tasting a bit of everything and loved it all. Excellent value for money, very tasty. Plus the owner and waitress were very welcoming and attentive. Next time we go to Canterbury, we'll go back without hesitation!
