A small place but with a big heart Once you tested the food it will linger in your mind. I am proud to say that I am not authentic, but I am original . I say so because I believe that the second generation should be better then the first. What I believe in fusion. Adding the goodness such as ginger, flax seed, soy, oats, and the abundance of herbs and spices of other nation infused with the flavor of Middl Eastern cuisine I nominated Azuri to become a servant to the community, by showingcare and hoping that you will notice my intent.

In Short
With half the space devoted to the open kitchen, this small restaurant has only five tables and specializes in takeout and delivery. The owner and staff put their attention into the food: shawarmas, beef and chicken… Read Full Editorial

Awesome Falafel by Rachel C via Insider Pages on 5/25/2010

The food at Azuri is great. There's not much seating and there's sometimes a line, but I simply can't get enough of their falafel. And the baklava! yum. I was a little worried after hearing they had an unfriendly staff, but they've always…

AZURI: Food that's oh so worth the visit! by Dave Hersh via Citysearch on 4/23/2010

Another person here who randomly stumbled upon AZURI while searching for decent FALAFEL in midtown-west. Having been in ISRAEL and trying maybe 50 diff versions in my two months there, I can tell you, this is a memorable version that will…

Good but dirty. Service is awful. by beacallot via Citysearch on 9/24/2008

I have been eating at Azuri for years but I just decided I had enough. The owner is rude, the place is a hole, and the food is not cheap. Yes, they do offer great falafels. But after seeing a rooach running along the counter, and having my…

Azuri Cafe by Carole B via Insider Pages on 8/19/2008

You'd better prepare to deal with the crowded conditions, to know what you want before you enter, to give your order quickly, and to accept the fact that you're not going to be met with a smile. That being said, Azuri has utterly…

Inexcusably Rude by peterb101 via Citysearch on 10/12/2007

Granted, the man makes a good falafel, but that doesn't make up for the way he treated my girlfriend and I when we tried this place. We went at lunch time, and I asked for a falafel on pita (as opposed to on a plate). \r \r He says "two…

Worth going out of your way for by Fraklein via Citysearch on 4/19/2007

I just ate at Azuri Cafe last night, and it's still as good as the other reviewers said. It was a cold, damp evening. I had waited on line for The Daily Show for over an hour, then was cut. I was chilled to the bone, but not very…

2 times in a row, wrong order by inkycam via Citysearch on 8/3/2005

first time, I dealt with it, second time, I had to tell them twice what I wanted and they still got it wrong. Called to complain and the response was "well, we didn't charge you for the falafel sandwich we shorted you." I'll give them a…

Azuri Cafe is Great by lizmayer via Citysearch on 5/14/2003

Delicious Middle Eastern food at cheap prices. Could come right out of Tel Aviv. Ezra Cohen is a friendly host.

Best in NYC? by hominamad via Citysearch on 10/21/2002

I've had lots of falafels in this city and the middle east as well. Up until I went to this place, my favorite falafel was Sam's falafel (he had a cart down near the WTC). I think I can say now that Azuri is by far the best falafel I've…

Delicious food, cramped space by meghan626 via Citysearch on 10/9/2002

The small falafel plate is one of the best things I've ever eaten in New York City. Don't expect a leisurely meal, though. This place is tiny. EXTREMELY tiny. The food is worth the sometimes prickly owner and crowd.

Cute place, warm owner, great food by techieninja via Citysearch on 10/3/2002

The last review is correct- the hummus was amazing! The $6 "small" falafel plate is not at all small and a great bargain. It comes with falafel, hummus, babbaganoush, several vegetable salads, pickles and bread. The atmosphere is cozy,…

Beats a Trip to the Holy Land by olive519 via Citysearch on 8/7/2002

Found this place on Zagat's after searching for a restaurant under $15 with a high rating in the West 50's. I went early, around 11:30am, for lunch b/c I hate crowds, especially in midtown. The place was small and simple, but I never…

The Best!!! by ayoung via Citysearch on 7/11/2002

First, Mr. Cohen (the owner) is one of the nicest and warm restaurant owners I have ever met. I came with my brother last night (he has been begging to drag me all the way there for ages)...and Mr. Cohen welcomed us with open arms. The…
