Lebanese
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.

We loved the food - very delicious- and the warmth of the decor.
The down side was the noise level. As a popular and animated restaurant, it was noisy and we found it difficult to have a conversation without having to raise our voices. I would love to return for the food but will choose a less busy time if the day and week.

Would have been better to have the pita bread come out of the oven, hot and not cold from a plastics bag.

Very good. Their salad, appetizers, and the main dish were really good. maybe even better than a more expensive middle eastern restaurant in town! he waiter was very polite, but when I was there I wished he was a little bit more friendly, it would make the guests more welcome or attached to the place in addition to the food :)

The food and ambiance are the reason I would recommend this restaurant. The service however was less than stellar. The waiter was often impatient, leaving before we’d completed our order and trying to rush us out the door at the end. It spoiled an otherwise lovely evening.

A very cosy ambiance. Delicious food, and for someone of Lebanese origin, it tastes like home. Portions are generous.
Service is very friendly.
My go to place to hang out with friends while sharing food and enjoying a drink. Been going there for 10 years.

The restaurant is warm and cozy. I loved the decor specifically the exposed brick wall. Our server was friendly and gave us great recommendations. We started with the fattoush salad which was absolutely delicious. We also ordered 3 dips, baba ghannouj (which my companion adored), mouhammara & mjaddara. It came with a generous amount of pitas. We followed this with the kibbé nayyé which was a beef tartare, grilled garlic shrimp and the fattet makdous. The last dish was a layered dish of crispy pita, yogurt, tahini, fried eggplant, minced lamb & tomatoes. It was one of our favourite dish. I enjoyed my meal and will definitely be back.

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.

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.

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!
