We visited this restaurant many time having parties at the hibachi tables and the regular ("traditional" ) tables. The food is good and the service is good. Waiters are very friendly, hibachi cooks are very professional (some of them are better, some of them are junior++ level, however good enough to prepare tasty food).

My son and I stopped in for a hibachi dinner; it had been a while since we'd last dined here. Suffice to say that this place isn't what it was. The service was mediocre at best, and the food barely average. It had little flavor beyond soy sauce, with no discernible spice or garlic. The accompanying mustard and ginger sauces... More

We went to Mahzu for the first time last night and loved it. Our waitress seemed to have a bit of an attitude until we started talking to her and she started smiling. The food was awesome (except for the salmon - that was just ok! The rest of the food made up for it!) Our tip is to ask... More

Had a great time. Hibachi style. We were celebrating a friends birthday. The hibachi was very good. Place is clean. Staff is friendly prices are typical for hibachi. I would recommend it.

Bento box and rolls are excellent. All fish is fresh and nicely presented. Very good service. They have a hibachi grill on one side of restaurant.

Had a great time at Mahzu Hibachi with friends. The place was not super crowded which surprised me because it was very nice and clean inside and it was Saturday night. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

Went to a hibachi table at Mahzu last evening with four generations of our family...ages 5 to 88. The chef was not only talented with a variety of cooking techniques (slicing, seasoning, serving, etc.), but also entertaining (performing a little egg balance/toss, serving pieces of zucchini and broccoli via a toss to someone's mouth, and squirting some saki directly from...

Ate dinner tonight with family for my niece's birthday. They really made the evening special for her--very attentive and food was delicious as usual. I really enjoy hibachi personally so I had a great time. They are very kid friendly too--you wouldn't think it immediately but they do go out of their way to keep them happy. Had a great... More

Went to Mahzu for dinner in the regular dining room, not the hibachi. Two of us ordered a bento box which included tempura, California roll and sushi or sashimi. The tempura batter was terrible! It seemed to have bread crumbs rather than the usual tempura batter. I ordered the sushi option and my companion the sashimi. The waiter came back... More
