Azura serves delicious Jewish-Iraqi comfort food, slow-cooked to perfection. Open only for lunch but don't miss the experience.

The tasting menu dish has enough food to feed a family. I felt guilty about how much was left on my plate, I had no idea they would offer me so much food! Excellent dishes all around, definitely worth a visit!

I had the kubbeh (a type of dumpling) in soup. Fantastic! Theh recommended the one with meat fillings and a sourish soup base (using pickles). The hit of the flavours worked very well together. The only open in the day, so go during lunch time!

I love this restaurant. It is Kurdish Food. If you have never heard of Kurdish food, don't worry about it. This fantastic place--lunch only--is in the Iraqui Shuk of the Jewish Market in Jerusalem. It is better to be with at least 3 or 4...More

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.
