Maza Restaurant

MAZA

On a recent trip to the Publix Supermarket on Hiawassee Rd, a sign caught my attention that read “Afghan Cuisine”. Finally, Orlando gets to taste Afghan food.

This restaurant occupies the old location of Habibi, next to Tessa, and Publix Supermarket.  From my vague memory, it appears that there might have been slight decor changes. At least the place looked brighter and cozier. There are several low tables and sectioned off areas for larger parties. Large life sized columns surround a semi private section. There are regular sized tables and chairs.

The menu has Indian and Afghan dishes. Afghan dishes are denoted with (A). There are Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Extras, Afghan Kabobs, Tandoori (clay oven), Murgh (chicken), Lamb, Jinga (shrimp), Machli (fish), Sabzi Khana (vegetarian), Biryani Entrees, Naans, parathas, and desserts, with specialty drinks.
