Everything was delicious and the service was great! This is a really fun place to go for vegetarian food and would be great with a group!

Food was amazing. I did not realize it was completely vegetarian (which was not a problem for me, even better) ambiance was great. It was quiet which was perfect. We had the potatoes, cauli, and flatbread

This is such a hidden gem! The food was fantastic, loved the ambiance, and the staff have a … dare I say … certain “jen e se kwah” (zero chance that’s actually how you spell it but you get the gist. Easily a top restaurant on the east side! would HIGHLY recommend.

We liked Mazal. It’s located pretty far from our beaten path so I’m not sure how soon we’ll be back. Checking in was ok, although we were ignored for around 5 minutes which made hovering just inside the front entrance only mildly uncomfortable. When we were seated it was very disappointing to see the seating area does not look like the photos. It’s plastic folding chairs - my friends and I don’t really like to feel we’re eating food from catering on a film set when we’re out for a nice meal, it breaks the spell of eating at a restaurant. But that’s ok, moving on because that’s very specific to our group and I’m not sure many others will be made uncomfortable by folding chairs. The service was ok, it seems a little under staffed even though there were not that many tables to serve. The beer we tried to order kept coming back as tapped, several times. We like to know what’s unavailable when we sit down at a table instead of a 15-minute drawn-out back and forth process with us choosing different drinks multiple times only to find out that our latest choice is also unavailable. The food was nice, I am a big hummus aficionado and Mazal’s is very good. The goat cheese flatbread was wildly dry though. I had to order a second hummus and use the flat bread as if it were just a pita to get some moisture on it. Probably needs a drizzle of olive oil at the end? All was fine outside of this one dish. I have to say, the restaurant is more like a appetizers place. Not tapas. Not shareables, that’s really too generous for the menu. I expected more substantial dishes than what was on the menu, but cobbled together we had enough food to feel full. I think the glowing reviews may have ruined the experience, or I’m just horribly jaded, but I did expect just a little better in experience than what was had.

a lovely vegetarian friendly spot! The hummus was good but the baba ghanoush was *chef's kiss*. The bourekas were also reaaaally warm and fluffy. That being said, I think I had higher expectations for the selection of foods and the flatbreads were just okay. We got a bottle of the Meinklang and unfortunately the bottle was kind of chilled but the wine itself was kind of lukewarm/room temp which was kind of upsetting. Aside from that, vibe was great and the patio was spacious!

Absolutely spectacular. A newer spot tucked away in the outskirts of downtown, Mazal stimulates all aspects of your being the second you walk in the door. From the aromas that match the spectacular flavors to the modern upbeat vibes that also encompass the family values it was built on, Mazal is a MUST.

Amazing night at Mazal! The service is 10/10. The entire staff is extremely knowledgable about the entire menu and super friendly. Tal, the owner, went over the entire wine list with our table and the 3 bottles we had were all absolutely amazing! The outdoor patio is a whole vibe!

So glad I found this place... Great service and the food was delicious. Sat outside in their courtyard which was very nice. Only real complaint was another diner sitting 2 tables away brought their dog which kept barking at another party's well behaved pet. After the naughty doggy left, dinner was much more enjoyable. The staff did a great job following COVID protocols.

Can’t believe we found this place 5 minutes from home. My husband is vegan and we often can’t find a middle ground when it comes to restaurants. This place is perfect for the both of us. We’ve gone twice since we tried it a few weeks ago and celebrated my birthday there last week. Every single dish is delicious and the wine selection is great. I definitely recommend!

Wow! The best new Israeli spot in Echo Park. Easy street parking. Indoor + outdoor seating options with heaters. Great wine selection. We ordered 4 things off the menu to share. Big portions and delicous flavors. Chef came by to set our food down and asked multiple times how our meal was. Great atmosphere with cute decor. We will be coming back!

Hi there! Disappointed in myself and my team for not being able to provide a better experience. Sometimes it's hard for me to gauge how loud the music is outside (a function of being in I have ZERO problem turning it down if it's an issue. Furthermore, any suggestions for improvement on the environment are encouraged, feel free to share! I honestly value the feedback. Tal, Owner @ Mazal

Food was excellent! Hands down the fluffiest, most delicious pita bread I have ever had, and that’s saying something because I am unabashedly a pita and hummus snob. Everything we ate was amazing! I will certainly be back!

Wow! Great experience from the service to the food. Fun and hip location just off the beaten path but still easily accessible.

As for the food...I lived in Israel for 4 years and grew up Israeli... this is the real deal in terms of Israeli/Mediterranean food. The hummus and tehina brought me back to the streets of Tel Aviv and they even have Israeli beer to complete the experience. All they’re missing is dancing on tables ;)

Forgot to mention that the owner came out to introduce himself and inquire how our food/experience was. We learned that he built and designed the entire interior and exterior himself by hand while his permit was pending approval during COVID.

Go and support this small business! You won’t regret it
