It seems they have became too big. Service is very very good and so is the atmosphere but the food is not so what it used to be.

The best homey mideastrn food you can get outside of someone's grandmaster's house. Must eat here if you visit in Jerusalem.

Yes, this place is extremely touristic and yes it is full of American birthright groups. But.... in my opinion it has the best kubbe around (try kubbe "hemo" ) and I have tried many around Machne Yehuda.

We ate a late lunch here after a day of touring and working up an appetite. This hole in the wall restaurant won't disappoint. Their specialties are Iraqui foods, blending meats and veggies with Sephardic spices. We let the staff recommend what was fresh and best that day sampled dishes based on his recommendation. Everything was delicious. The felafel was... More

Cool, authentic restaurant, probably among the best in Jerusalem, serving good hummus and other more interesting stuff. The service is quick and efficient, and prices are very fair.

This place is heaven. Informal seating, relaxed and welcoming, nestled in one side of Mahane Yehuda Market. We had some troubles finding it, but if you ask someone they will point it for you. No matter what you order, everything is to die for. True Israeli flavors made with love. This is what food should be. It can get pricey... More

Delicious food! We ordered the meat hummus, the Azura, (eggplant stuffed with meat) and beef sofrita (so?) for two adults and three kids, and we brought leftovers. The kids enjoyed the food, too! The food is brought quickly, since it has been slow-cooking for hours. We got there early for lunch (11:30am on a Friday morning), and got seats without... More

Recommended by Ottolenghi & a Jerusalem institution, this simple & extraordinary restaurant is not to be missed. The ultimate fast food. They may deliver the food within a couple of minutes of you ordering, but they've been up since dawn slow cooking the ultimate hummus, chicken Sofrito, moussaka, & eggplant with cinnamon & pinenuts. Service is gruff & efficient, a... More

We stumbled across Azura but had again read about it in a Yotam Ottelenghi article. Hummus was delicious and creamy and falafel were an amazing bright green colour and super tasty. We also had the "Azura" stuffed eggplant with mince meat and cinnamon. However they forgot to put this in the order so came somewhat late. They gave us complimentary... More
