Turkish
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.

A truly great local eatery, fully deserving of the five star reviews the other reviewers have given it. A simple restaurant with restrained, tasteful decor and really good meze food. Fresh ingredients and succulent meat produced by someone who really knows how to cook.
We went for the mixed meze starter and the mixed grill for main course, which was absolutely perfect in terms of quantity and quality for two people.
This place is almost forgotten about - it’s literally the last premises in Bedford Hill at the end of all the run of restaurants and pubs in that location but is incredibly worth a visit. London is full of Greek and Turkish places doing this type of food but this is about the best I’ve had.
Highly recommended

Great meal out. We had the borek to start which were delicious, mix grill was great - lamb shish especially...very tender. Baklava was fresh and soaked in syrupy goodness. Turkish coffee was cracking. Great service. Thank you!

Our food was lovely and a little different to other mezes which was a nice change.
Unfortunately Opentable confused things as they showed the restaurant was full but sadly this was incorrect and I worry that they are missing out on bookings because of this. Do ring the restaurant directly if you would like to book and opentable shows that it is full.

Fantastic food and service! My friend and I both had the chicken shish with a side of tzatziki and it was all delicious. Will definitely be returning outside of the “Eat Out Help Out” scheme as we thoroughly enjoyed it!!
