Meze Mazis, our name refers to the ‘meze’ style of food in which there is a selection of small hot and cold dishes, often served at the beginning of a multi-course meal. Mazis is a word which combines our family name alongside the Greek word for together, Mazi, to form the meaning 'Meze Together.'

Located in Balham, our family-owned restaurant offers guests the food and warmth of the Mediterranean. Our food is a blend of Greek, Turkish and Italian brought to you by Head Chef Ben and his team. In his 17 years of experience, Chef Ben honed his recipes in Central London’s Victoria, known for his refined charcoal-grilled cooking style and homemade Baklava. He has since stayed true to his authentic Mediterranean roots with all his recipes cooked fresh.

I thought the service and food at meze mazis was good but for a saturday night there were very few people in the restaurant so the ambience was too quiet. Shame as its a good spot. I would consider going with a larger crowd next time.

Neighbourhood gem - really friendly, polite staff. Delicious fresh food and the quality of the lamb was great, so tender. Had a business lunch here a few months ago and was impressed. Went back with two friends - everyone loved it and said they would go back. Says it all.

Food was great and as you would expect (lamb shish was particularly good), portions were big and the service was fab.

This is my third time at this restaurant and each time Ive had a lovely experience. They were easily able to cater for the needs of my group, I have an onion allergy and my friend is vegan.
My only complaint would be with the cost of the prosecco. £30 is way above standard restaurant pricing so could do with a price check on that.
Otherwise I have already recommended to other friends.

Really nice local restaurant with great service - the young waitress who looked after our table was so lovely. Made one mistake on our order but fell over backwards to rectify it (we weren't angry or pushy in the slightest, i just think they were nice!).

Good value, date loved it, nice open frontage for summer.

Will be back :)

Great new-ish restaurant in Balham which has lacked this style of food since the Greek Restaurant closed a few years ago.

Although I live a few minutes away, I rarely walk down this road.

Wish I'd visited before. Based on my first experience I think I'll become a regular and progressively eat through the menu.

Fantastic modern Turkish food with a bit of a twist with the hot sauces.

Can't fault it. Get down there.

As this restaurant has only been around for 5 months, my girlfriend and I had not heard about it, but we will definitely be going back!

Great service and great food, lovely decor and ambience, attentive and caring staff. Give it a try next time you’re in Balham!

Lovely little find around the corner. Good quality, affordable food, and great attentive service. We did go for an early dinner, which could be the reason for the slight lack in ambiance, with only two other diners, however, I would definitely recommend, and hope to return soon!!

Visited for brunch and found the restaurant well presented and friendly staff. The Mediterranean breakfast was spot on, good coffee and eggs cooked how you like them. No rush and could enjoy a leisurely mint tea afterwards. I would definitely return for brunch or at another time of day to try out the main menu. Worth the few minutes walk away from the central hub of Balham.
