    Mazu is a sleek Szechuan restaurant with excellent food and friendly wait staff. Start with a well made cocktail especially during Happy Hour and peruse the menu. We choose the following:hot and sour soup which was a really big bowl with a very well seasoned and tasty broth. The waitress suggested a shrimp roll and it was lightly fried with a shrimp filling. It was thin and not greasy and wonderful. Order the Szechuan dumplings, we preferred them with a spicy sauce, most excellent. On to the main dishes: shrimp with chili sauce, yes it had a kick to it and the shrimp were cooked perfectly. We had Dan Dan noodles and are possibly the best version in the city as the noodles were not overcooked and the sauce was terrific. The tangerine beef, just slightly overdone, we should have ordered it medium rare, was still tender and coated with a sauce that had real tangerine flavoring. The broccoli was also freshly steamed. We also had the Kung Pao chicken and would recommend it for its flavorful mixture of white meat chicken and various vegetables. All in all we had a great meal with friendly service and we weren’t rushed at all. There was so much food that they packed everything we could not eat for take home. Prices are reasonable too. Try this restaurant you won’t be disappointed

    Everything is just wonderful the bartender Bernice and waitress Amy were just terrific. the only comment I would like to make is about the vegetable dishes the size of the order for the price is just not worth it. the bok choy came with a small order for $16 if there aren’t going to be half orders at a smaller price than that size of a dish definitely needs to be larger to be worth the price

    The food and staff are just wonderful especially Amy the bartender:waitress. All the dishes have always been excellent except for one- the scallion pancakes. I have tried them all over town and had hoped they would be non-greasy here but I am sorry to say they were too hard and greasy. that’s the one item that doesn’t match up with the rest of the excellent food. also here’s a suggestion: it would be great to have side orders of vegetables so you can order a smaller vegetable plate with a main fish or chicken dish

    We went for Restaurant Week. The Menu had 5 options each for Appetizers and Entrees (and 2 for Desserts), for a $21 Sunday lunch. I thoroughly enjoyed my 1/2 portion of chili dumplings, while my companion had crab puffs. For her main course, she had “a lot of”) scallops, while I had rock shrimp with a twist - the steamed broccoli was presented as a side. We both had small portions of mochi to close out the meal. We really enjoyed eating inside, with open air, and watching the goings on of the Third Avenue outdoor build outs. For the first sunny, mild, not-too-humid, not rainy day I’m a month, it was as much a treat as the congenial staff, who were friendly, but did not hover.
