They cook on a Nafta (we called it Neft) cooking stove we used in Israel when I grew up....it is called PTI-LI-YA. The seating is a bit tight; however, it is worth the experience. The menu includes some regular Israeli stuff, as well as ethnic dishes that people remember from their grandmothers. I chose lamp balls in a nice sauce, and an eggplant dish. Great choices! This is a kosher restaurant; the meat is always well cooked, yet tender. I did not get a very good shot of the dish I chose but submit it anyway. It is a restaurant for the whole family, in the summer they also have outdoor seating. The service is friendly, efficient and the food comes surprisingly fast, considering the restaurant was full to the hilt.

The food here is great. However, on the day we visited ( Friday) there was a 30 min wait, due to the long line of people.

After coming twice late in the evening, only to find the restaurant closed, we made sure to come in the morning. The staff showed us all the choices simmering on low flames (except for one that still needed to stay covered), and helped us make a very difficult choice of what to have - so many excellent dishes, so little time... we had the oxtail and meatball, and these two dishes were flavorful, satisfying, and rather different from the norm, so it was a real treat. A great stop in the Iraqi section of Mahane Yehuda.

I ate my favourite meal while visiting Israel here. It's a pokey place that you may not notice, but the food! Oh my! The falafels! The hummus! If you're visiting Jerusalem, I highly recommend a stop in here.

We took away food back to our hotel from this restaurant. It can be a little hard to find as the "Azura" font is very small but follow googlemaps and it will lead you to the storefront.

An easy way to recognize it would be the red and white checkered tablecloths on the tables arranged in an alfresco setting:)

we ordered the signature Azura eggplant dish which did not disappoint. The taste of tomatoes was quite strong so for those who don't like tomatoes, youve been warned.

The falafels were a little overcooked and dry, but went well with the tomato sauce that came with the eggplant.

For great falafels i would still go back to Moshiko falafel (about a 15 min walk away, along ben-yehuda shopping street). Their falafels and french fries are a sinfully deadly combo!!
