A real treat. We each ordered an eggplant dish and tge6 were both great. Highly recommend. Don’t expect atmosphere except for the bustling market. Just enjoy the food.

A truely special restaurant in the Iraqi section of Machane Yehuda. Authentic (kosher) Iraqi food. The kubbeh beet soup is to die for, as are the stuffed vegetables.

Not fancy. Incredible, warm service. Sephardic (Jewish Oriental) specialties. The chummus with meat was delicious, but the oxtail was just on another level. It's only served some days and is fatty, expensive (100 shekels), and spicy (a whole, large, green hot pepper in the sauce)...More

If you are interested in authentic Israeli food Azura is the place to visit. This is one of the best places for authentic home made Israeli food, active since decades in Jerusalem.

The best Hummus in the country and an amazing Kurdish (Iraqi) menue. If you have time try the tasting menue.

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.
