In this beautiful brick setting, the atmosphere is a party! The opportunity to share in a friendly mezze from Syria and Lebanon. It all starts with pita bread, which is generously butter or hummus mouhamara, this sweet dough of walnuts, bread crumbs and molasses grenadine. We then regales a kofta with pistachios, a kebab has grenadine and tahini, or divine shanks braised lamb. Another excellent dish: sautéed shrimp, tomato sauce, white wine, saffron and garlic. These colorful dishes with fragrant flavors of the East invite you to travel with your senses. We will help you discover excellent Lebanese wine and be assured you we will return! The brunches on weekends are just as magical.

It’s always been one of my top choices in Montreal and it always surpasses everyone’s expectations. Ps I’m Arab and I’m saying this is good Arabic food.

The kebbe raw was drenched in olive oil! The fattouch salad lacked flavour and you can do better on vine leaves

Server sucked. Not friendly at all. Rolled eyes at me because I had many questions regarding my food allergies. Told me “this is not the place for me”.
Portions are tiny for the price tag.
The restaurant is tiny.
Not authentic “middle eastern” food in my opinion.
Overall, would not recommend.

Our table was given to someone else, the service was long and my meal was served cold (probably frozen meat).

I have been to KazaMaza several times and always enjoy my experience there.
I have had the same server before. He is very efficient but not very personable.
This may be due to the fact that the restaurant is always busy but he could make more of an effort to be friendlier.

Good food, but the service was not good. The waiter seemed pre-occupied and impatient, we felt not welcomed and almost contemplated leaving at the beginning. Not sure if I will go back.

La nourriture étaient très bonne, avec beaucoup de choix végétalien. Le service était ok, ça pourrait être mieux. L’ambiance était festive, il y avait un gros groupe dans la salle et c’était très bruyant.

It was a really good experience, except for the noise, but sometimes crowdy means a good place to go. The food and service were very good too.
See you !

I drove with my whole family including my 7 month old baby, paid for parking, was greeted and assigned a table but for over 10 minutes no waiter was shown to serve us. I picked up my things and we left. Really very disappointed!

The meal started off well with a good fatouch sakad and beet puree dip but my wife ordered the grilled chicken expressly mentioning only of there is no coriander with it. Of course, a sizeable garnish of coriander came with the chicken. We asked the waiter to change it and he said they could simply remove the coriander and return the same plate . This would not do and he simply took the dish away and charged us for it anyways.

First time customer. Excellent food, fresh, great flavours and presentation. Comfortable and warm ambiance. Would recommend clearing plates a little quicker, but perhaps staffing was short on the night we were there. All round excellent, and will definitely return.

Sorry to say I was very disappointed. Food was good but nothing was a wow! Service was great especially considering the amount of guests. We are used to Montreal restaurant noise but this was over the top. I would try the braised lamb shank. That was very good.

Craving some different cuisine and Lebanese came to Mind. What a great find! Seems like it was an old home, the wood floor and brick walls feels like you’re having a home cooked meal at a friends home. Food was delicious and staff is approachable and polite. Great experience, definitely coming back! Been to Damas and prefer this place to them. Difference is it’s lower cost, homier feel, less commercial and fancy shmancy

The food was delicious, and the restaurant itself is so cute and welcoming. I made a comment that I felt like it was a place I would live, it felt like a home. The one thing I would say is that it was a bit dark. I saw a lot of people using their phone lights to read the menu. But once you read the menu and ordered, it was totally worth it. I think they could have even pointed to anything and it would have been delicious. Also, it was my first time trying Lebanese beer, big fan!

Excellent restaurant libanais! Nous y sommes allés suite à la recommandation de Tastet et nous n'avons pas été déçus. Nous avons adoré le baba ghannouj et la mousaqa'a. Par contre, nous avons été déçus par le hummus, surtout que plusieurs évaluateurs en avaient dit beaucoup de bien. Je salive encore juste à penser au samké harra: délicat et savoureux tout à la fois. Le vin rouge libanais qui nous a été recommandé était très bien. Nous y retournerons sûrement!

Nice ambiance with delicious halal food!
Very recommended for special occasions or just for nice dinner!
If to increase music's volume, the ambiance would be even better!
