We live in Ajax not too far from this gem at Bayly and Westney Rd and have visited Mazza quite a few times since they opened. We usually order several appetizers and a main course or 2 to share between 4 of us. We have never been disappointed, from the humble hummus, the beautiful baba ganoush and tabbouleh to the succulent chicken, kebabs, seafood platter and fish. The food is cooked to perfection and the sea bass, either grilled our fried is second to none. Actually, any meat or fish has consistently been incredibly flavourful and moist. The owners are warm and welcome you as old friends. Their generosity often extends to a sampling of their home made pistachio ice cream or a plate of cookies to go with coffee. In the warm weather, the patio is a lovely place to relax and share a shisha (sorry if spelling is not correct) with friends. It is unfortunate that the location makes it difficult to see, so it is up to the faithful to pass the word around. Wouldn't you rather eat at a family owned restaurant where every dish is lovingly prepared than a chain? I would any day of the week. They also do bbq lunches of burgers and such, I haven't been there for lunch but I'm sure it is excellent. The chef really knows his way around a grill!
Please give Mazza a try, and you will find you will be a convert after one meal. It is very reasonably priced and not like anything else you will find in Durham region.
