Adjacent to the main thoroughfare is a restaurant you don't want to miss. Meat or veggie, the food is delicious, fresh, with large portions. Eat in or people watch from the outdoor seating. The hummus was the best I've ever tasted. So was the tabboule and the shawerma. The owner and his son were so friendly and engaging. We loved it ALL!

The highly rated restaurant we were going to was closed for the holiday so we decided to walk around downtown Bend and scope out the venues in person rather than online. We came across Mazza and took a chance, primarily based on the welcome attitude of the owner Mike. We are vegetarian so we ordered the veggie wrap and mezza vege plate. He brought us his home made hot sauce, which was subtle, smokey and just the right degree of burn to complement but not overwhelm the food. Everything was excellent. The baba ganoush is most excellent. I will no longer wonder where to go for a good meal when passing through Bend.

We eat at least one meal at this delightful little restaurant every time we are in Bend. This is a smallish, casual dining spot that is consistently good.

My husband usually gets the kebabs or the shwarma, and I always get the mezza appetizer plate. The side dish rice is to die for. Last visit, the owner treated us to some beautiful Turkish dates that were melt in your mouth amazing. It was very kind of him to share his treasures!

Give this little spot a try if you like middle eastern food. Don't be deterred by the casual ambiance, as the food is fantastic. And very affordable!

Always on the look out for mezza and pita we went here right after it opened. Alas it was still working out the bugs and we kinda forgot about it. Wandering by the other day we decided to give it a second chance and they've gotten a lot of their issues worked out. We came in right behind a big group of mixed ages (maybe the kids, parents and grand parents) who didn't have a clue. With counter ordering this is a disaster for a two-ball like us but the owner snapped over to the other station and took our order while they were looking at the board. It took a bit--it was mid weekend afternoon and the place was pretty full and there had been some to-go phone in orders--but we got our food hot and freshly made. The falafel was crisp outside and soft and moist inside. The pitas were the same. The wraps were large (probably a half for girls and a full for boys) and loaded with veggies. It was an interesting touch to ask if we wanted tahini which tells you something about the middle eastern food sophistication of this market. Going back to give the menu a more serious look through and check on their dips.

I have been in Bend since 1984, and this is the best made from scratch food in Bend. I do love a lamb dish, and I will tell you the lamb kabobs served at this place is the best I have ever eaten. I have had this dish many times and is had always been a 10 in excellence, in serving size, presentation, and the flavor is unreal. If you add Mike's special hot sauce to your meal you will be blown away. You will not be disappointed if you try it out.
