I had an outstanding mini kebab and pork souvlaki here. The place is 100% quthentic: Greek waiters, Greek owner, etc. I literally could not point out one thing I did not like. I would definitely visit again.

I love my Greek food and have had been to some lovely Greek restaurants in my time. Mazi delivers a fresh twist on what you would expect but in an oh such a positive way.

As it is some time since we visited in September 2017 I had to check what we had by revisiting the photos on my phone. Doing so, my mouth started watering at the sight.

We had the Dakos, hummus and the tzatzikifor starters.. Dakos is a rare thing in a lot of greek places, but this place did it to perfection. It is one of my favourite dishes of all, with the lovely hard bread softened by the chopped tomatoes and topped by the feta. Amazing !! The hummus and the tzatziki were similarly good, tzatziki not too garlicky as is the case in a lot of places it was all wolfed down along with the lovely toasted pitta,

I had the lamb burger topped with a huge wedge of feta for main course whilst my husband had some chicken skewers. There was really no need for so much feta on my burger but what's wrong with over indulging sometimes.

We had baklava for dessert with some ice cream, and were also given some free home made ice cream as well. Can't quite remember what the flavour was but must have been good as we ate it all.

I really should have done this review sooner than this as it is one of the best meals we have had in a long time.

The owner/chef was also very welcoming and open to questions and walked around the tables and welcomed people in between going back and fore to the kitchen. Very engaging and I am so glad this restaurant has had similar reviews to mine.

Thank you so much for a lovely evening. If we return to Budapest this is a must.

I do advise you to book though. We booked for 6pm and when we arrived it was empty. Within an hour they were turning people away as the place was full, and we all know why !!

My fiancé and I visited Budapest and we discovered this amazing Greek restaurant on our first day. We loved the food and the atmosphere was amazing. We had chicken souvlaki, pork souvlaki and sheftalies and all three dishes were delicious! In the end they treated us with homemade Greek ravani and ice cream. The service of the staff was amazing; in particular Simos was very friendly, chatty and welcoming. We enjoyed it that much that we will be going back in two days to taste their dish kontosouvli. We would definitely recommend it if you want to taste the real Greek experience!
