Azi Grill to Open at Janss Marketplace in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday, August 16th

Janss Marketplace is proud to announce the opening of Azi Grill on Wednesday, August 16 at the shopping center, located off the Moorpark exit on the 101 Freeway at the intersection of Moorpark Road and Hillcrest Drive in Thousand Oaks. 

The newest restaurant at Janss Marketplace will feature authentic Mediterranean cuisine. Owner Mazen Nadour has been in the culinary world since he was a young man working for his father in Homs, Syria.  His culinary ancestry comes from a long line of chefs dating back to his great-great-grandfather.  The menu at Azi Grill features family recipes passed down from generation to generation. 

Nadour owned some of the best shawarma and falafel restaurants in Syria before the war forced his family to leave the country.  After arriving in the United States, he worked at the Santa Cruz Market and Beverage Company in Ventura where he learned to speak English and to prepare classic American food.

The new Azi Grill will feature healthy, delicious food including shawarma, falafel, and kabob, served with Nadour’s signature hummus and salad.  Azi Grill will also offer some American items as options to the international cuisine.  

In celebration of the restaurant Grand Opening, the first 100 diners will receive a FREE menu item.  Guests will also have the opportunity to win prizes:
