The restaurant is quite small, lots of action with staff and patrons coming and going. The highlight of the menu is the Azura special eggplant and meat meal.

Forget about the fancy places. If you are after the best local authentic food go to Azura. This is the real taste of the MachneYehuda market. Do not leave Jerusalem without visiting Azura. We highly recommend the 'house soup'. The simplest name does not give you a clue what to wait for... The 'bull tail' is another great choice, some... More

We had not been back for about a year. There was not particular reason why, just didn't get around to it. We went back there today for lunch, and I must say we were not disappointed. The service, and food were great. Its a very busy place, so you may have to wait, but its worth it.

The "Mahane Yehuda" market in Jerusalem has long become also touristic place and it is dotted with lot of restaurants and coffee shops each of them claiming to serve authentic local food .Azura to my opinion is the best.
