I wish there were some more hot dishes, and that the carrots came hot, but that pita is unlike anything I’ve had. And the dips are great. The tahini cake is like a pound cake and must be tried. The cauliflower is great. The veggie ricotta flatbread lacked flavor next to everything else, but if you drizzle some of the spicy tahini on it you can satisfactorily salvage it. I wish it had come with some bolder and punchier flavors on that flatbread though. Big orange wine selection.

Easily my favorite restaurant in LA now. They are bringing fresh ideas and fresh ingredients to classics and introducing some new-wave takes as well. Excited to hit this during the spring and summertime!

We loved the ambiance. Very authentic, chic, and beautiful. We ordered a flatbread, the hummus, the carrots, the cauliflower, and the bourekas. I can’t say a bad word about any of it! It’s actually quite the opposite - we loved everything. My husband always wants to try new places every time we go out to eat and after eating here he said, “Good job, babe, you found a place I want to eat again and again.” We were planning our next trip before we even finished our food. Thank you!

Amazing food and outdoor dining experience. Was seated by the owner who gave us a great intro to the restaurant. The staff was very knowledgeable about the wine and food on the menu. Full organic wine list and vegetarian menu. Loved everything we ordered! Favorites were the borekas and potato with hummus.

Every dish that we have ordered, which is almost all of them has been phenomenal. Awesome wine list with lots of fun and funky options. You must get the hummus and the bagel and don’t skip on desert. Excellent service, Tal and his staff are great.

Mazal was just what I was looking for as my first dine out experience with the re-opening. The welcoming and creative ambiance paired with the staff’s hospitality made me feel at home. Service was attentive and the food was spot on 👌🏼 from dips to salads to mains (oh and don’t forget to pair it with a bottle of wine).

Would 10/10 recommend and am looking forward to coming back soon!

A friend recommended that we try this place because it is food that we don't typically eat in the South Bay and we were very impressed. The ambiance is fairly quiet but we were lucky to have our table decently close to some others so we could interact with some other people. The service is spectacular only to be outdone by the food. The food is spot on. The best bread I have ever had in my entire life and the mozarella flatbread is an absolute must. We got what seemed like half the menu and it was very affordable. I highly recommend this place.

Went to dinner at Mazal on a Wednesday night as me and my sister were both home in LA for Thanksgiving. We had the Babaganoush, Hummus, Pita Bread, Ricotta Flatbread and the Vegan Chocolate Date Cake for dessert.

Everything was delicious, came out quickly and was brought to the table with friendly service.

I lived in Israel for a year and always crave authentic Israeli food here in the US. Mazal reminded me of meals I'd always eat during my time in Israel and to top it all off they even had Gold Star beer on the menu.

Definitely will be coming back!

I truly enjoyed my Mazal experience. Everything was extremely fresh and well done. As an Israeli I’m particularly finicky about Bourekas and I thought they nailed the puff pastry as well as all the individual plates. Service was lovely, they made their outdoor seating very charming and peaceful considering that’s it’s in the more industrial part of lincoln heights. It’s truly a treat to step into the back area and feel covid safe and comfortable!

Deserts are also very tasty. The whole menu is absolutely yummy. The morrocan spiced carrots, the flufffy pita, the flatbreads-all delicious! Overall I think Mazal is a wonderful addition to the burgeoning Israeli food scene in LA. If I had to make just one, tiny suggestion it would be to add a little bit more tahini to their hummus mixture, (but everyone from Israel has their own specific take on what makes the best hummus). Definitely going back for more!!
