- We took a reprieve from our explorations at Cazba, a Mediterranean restaurant separated from the downtown bustle by a cool, fenced patio. Our window seat offered an endless, diverse stream of urbanites and we regained our strength with homemade hummus, juicy lamb gyros, curry chicken and shrimp wraps. – Adam Mankoski, ANewsCafe.com
- Cazba…has abided fairly strictly by a policy that forbids altering what is apparently "not broke," a practice that has earned the downtown restaurant a foodie following while still managing to lure in curious new customers. – Rachael Daigle, Boise Weekly
Cazba Mediterranean Restaurant
Cazba Mediterranean Restaurant's chefs draw from an international repertoire of recipes from Mediterranean-inspired cuisine with dishes hailing from Greece, Egypt, and Lebanon. These culinary expatriates range from plates such as flame-broiled shish kebabs and housemade hummus to entrees from the shores of Japan and India. Inside the kitchen, the chefs carve slices of roasting gyros and deep-fry falafel for a crispy exterior. They also glaze fish with honey-ginger teriyaki sauce and season chicken with Cajun spices. From this kitchen, the servers also transport specialties such as dolmades—grape leaves stuffed with lamb, beef, and rice—and spanakopita, a spinach pie of phyllo dough and feta cheese. The outdoor patio can mimic the pleasant air of the Mediterranean during warmer months and another of the Mediterranean's best treats—the Running of the Bulls—whenever Michael Jordan feels like going for a jog on a restaurant's outdoor patio.
