About Us

Welcome to Mazra, an extraordinary family-owned Mediterranean restaurant nestled in the heart of the Bay Area. Founded by brothers Saif and Jordan Makableh, Mazra celebrates their profound respect for their cultural heritage and their passion for the vibrant flavors of the Levant region.

Saif Makableh embarked on a culinary adventure in 2012, honing his skills alongside renowned chefs specializing in Lebanese cuisine in Sydney, Australia. Fueled by his newfound expertise, Saif returned to the Bay Area with a vision to create an unparalleled Mediterranean dining experience.

Joined by his brother Jordan, they approached their father, who owned the cherished Green Valley Market, a grocery store deeply ingrained in the community since 2005. Instead of letting it go, they proposed an inspiring transformation—a Mediterranean restaurant that would showcase the dynamic flavors and techniques of the Levant. With their father's blessing, Saif and Jordan embarked on this culinary endeavor.

At Mazra, Saif's culinary expertise shines through a meticulously crafted menu that pays homage to the Levant's diverse culinary heritage. Traditional recipes are reinvented with modern twists, resulting in an imaginative and flavorful dining experience. From mouthwatering Mezza Platters featuring Hummus, Baba Gannoush, and Tabbouleh to tantalizing main courses such as Shawarma, Wood-fired Kebabs, and Grilled Seafood infused with aromatic spices, Mazra offers an array of options to satisfy every palate.

Jordan's commitment to creating an inviting atmosphere is evident in the warm and vibrant space he has meticulously designed. With vibrant colors, rustic decor, tasteful music, and an open kitchen, Mazra immerses guests in a dining experience that brings the spirit of the Mediterranean to life.

More than just a restaurant, Mazra is a place where stories are shared, connections are made, and traditions are celebrated. The Makableh family's passion for their cultural heritage permeates every aspect, creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all who visit.

Saif, Jordan, and the entire Makableh family are dedicated to providing a memorable experience, where exceptional food, warm hospitality, and a celebration of Mediterranean flavors merge to create an unforgettable dining adventure.
