Address: 1077 State Route 34, Aberdeen, NJ 07747
It was a while back that my family decided to try Mahzu as a new Japanese restaurant in the area, since we found out that the owners were another family that we knew from the Chinese school I was attending at the time. I have been back to Mahzu numerous times throughout the past few years with both my family and my friends.
The food at Mahzu is absolutely exceptional, and that quality is something that has held up over the years. From the sushi bar, the chefs offer a variety of delicious maki rolls as well as sashimi. They also offer a variety of traditional Japanese dishes, such as teriyaki, tempura, and donburi. There are eight hibachi tables in the back, staffed by extremely friendly and skilled hibachi chefs.
In my visits, I have tried numerous rolls from the sushi bar, the chicken teriyaki and the chicken tempura as well as varying combos from the hibachi menu. I have thoroughly enjoyed my food each and every time and always recommend my friends who are interested in trying Japanese food to go to Mahzu for an awesome experience.
Here are my rankings for Mahzu:
