We enjoy Azura every time we visit Jerusalem. The food is outstanding and good service. It’s just off the main corridor of the market, tucked away in a nice location with shade.

This Jerusalem favorite is a kosher meat restaurant and I am a vegetarian, so I can't speak to the main dishes here, but they have my favorite shakshuka in Israel. It's more spicy and has a depth of flavor that's not so common. It doesn't...More

It took us about half an hour to find this little gem, but is worth it as the food was delicious just a pity it’s not open in the evening. It’s just outside the market away from the roads and the crowds.

Our guide brought us to Azura for an Iraqi lunch. What a great treat. We sampled 4 dishes. Sorry I didn’t get the names of the dishes, but we loved them. I also enjoyed my first Israeli beer. Great lunch. Highly recommended

Food was absolutely delicious. Ordered the Azura dish which is eggplant with ground meat and sauce with cinnamon. Only reason I did not give it 5 is because the service was mediocre. I would definitely come here again

Call the restaurant, I doubt they are reading these posts. And yes, they will be able to accomodate you but may request that you commit to the tasting menu

I did not have a reservation. Whether or not the establishment takes and honors a reservation I am unaware.

Sabbath or not, they are not open in the evenings. Anyway, the food is finished very quickly (after 3 or 4 pm, you are left with "left over"). So I don't think there is a need to serve in the evenings.
