Square Meal Review of Mazi ?

The guys at Mazi are the peerless new Hellenic heroes of W8, bringing upbeat Greek hospitality to packed houses nightly. Slightly overwhelmed waiters manage to cope with the boisterous crowds who squeeze into the tiny space for a taste of sunny, progressive food that transcends the tired repertoire of old-school holiday tavernas. Home-baked breads arrive with various jars filled with the likes of grilled aubergine, soy and thyme honey or tarama mousse with lemon confit, while starters bring intensely flavoured and mouth-wateringly tender ‘grand mama's meatballs' piled on sliced cucumber with a mint and sesame dip. Succulent lobster with orzo pasta and herb-crusted saddle of lamb with a savoury baklava of its shoulder are signature dishes for good reason – just add a glass from the impressive, exhaustively researched all-Greek wine list for the perfect match.

    Lux Life | A Lifestyle Blog :: Mazi, Notting Hill.

    On Monday evening I went to Greek restaurant Mazi in Notting Hill for dinner with the lovely ladies from Purple PR and three other bloggers and journalists. It was an intimate affair with the six of us sat outside in the cute little garden, sharing plates upon plates of delicious Greek food and Tzatziki Martinis. I'm a huge fan of Greek food, especially since my trip to Kefalonia on the Greek Islands last year, so I was very much looking forward to sampling the cooking of world-renown Chef George Venieris. George has been crowned 'Best Greek Chef' for two years running by Conde Nast Traveller, so I knew we were in for a treat!...

    HungryinLondon :: MAZI (Notting Hill)

    My exposure to Greek food has been unexciting. I spent my summer holidays on various Greek islands when I was in my late teens and early twenties and at this time, I was severely financially restricted (meaning I didn’t experiment eating at higher end restaurants – I don’t know if they even existed?). The typical tourist (drinking) destinations that I visited consisted of basically one cloned restaurant with a sleazy Greek waiter in front trying to persuade customers to enter his restaurant (mostly with bribes like free ouzo and free house wine). This restaurant clone served the same few dishes with more or less similar quality: Greek salad, gyros, souvlaki, moussaka, dolmades. Washed down with enough ouzo and retsina it tasted fine but I can’t say that it left any lasting positive impressions...
