Best homemade Lebanese food since my mother's!

I was on vacation seeing my aunt in Scranton and she suggested going to the Savory Maza. WoW! I haven't had Lebanese food this good since my mother passed away. They had wonderful service and the owners even came out and visited with us. Reservations are a must as they just keep getting busier... read more

When my husband and I walked in the staff was eating at the bar and was not too happy to be interrupted. The Lentil soup was watered down. They never gave us pita bread after I even asked for it. Our waitress instead chose to talk to her friends about how broke she was. The grape leaves had no taste... More

Savory Maza is a family owned and run business, everything is hand-made. Therefore, it may be hard to get a seat and reservations are preferred. However, the food is delicious. I grew up in a Lebanese family and this is the only Lebanese restaurant I have eaten at where I love the food, because it tastes homemade and not manufactured.... More

We don't have a lot of unique international cuisine in this area so it's nice to have something different for a change. 2 of us dined here last night and both the food and service were very good. My husband had the Tour of Lebanon and he really enjoyed everything and loved the variety. We also had the hummus -... More

Best lentil soup I've ever eaten. Family atmosphere. You can eat a lot of this type food, be full and have no regrets. Love the hummous too!

We eat Lebanese food quite often and were excited to find this place. It is quite a distance away, but since we had to be in Scranton anyway, we timed our trip so we could have dinner there. The menu was simple, with many duplicates but for change in protein (beef kabob, lanb kabob, etc). There was nothing that was... More

I had walked by this place a few times, and I would never have guessed how fantastic the food is. It is AMAZING! The Balila is not to be missed, and the wait staff is always super friendly. If you live in the Scranton area, you must try this place (but make sure to make a reservation)!

I've to say, the last thing I expected to find in Scranton, PA was a very good Lebanese restaurant. It was lunch time, we just bought tickets for a 2:50pm Lackawanna Coal Mine tour, I looked up our options in TripAdvisor fully expecting to find a pizza place or two, and there it was. The food is pretty authentic and... More

I have been to Savory Maza twice and ordered take out from there once. The service and food are excellent. If I had a complaint about the restaurant it would be the size of the dining area, which can be a bit tight. But that adds to the family business feel of the place so it can be overlooked. Overall...

Gave this restaurant a try since it ranked highly on trip advisor. Very disappointed. We thought the service was very slow. But we noticed people that walked in that knew the waitress got served before us even though they arrived 20 minutes after us. All of the food we ordered actually tasted similar even though they were completely different dishes.... More
