Hummus and Baba Ganoush are amazing!

Several friends and I are trying to eat healthier and we opted for Laziza's middle-Eastern fare. Each of us ordered something different and while everything was really good, the baba ganoush (roasted eggplant finely chopped) and hummus, smooth chickpea paste were outstanding.

Each of us ordered something different and while everything was really good, the baba ganoush (roasted eggplant finely chopped) and hummus, smooth chickpea paste were outstanding. The only drawback was the bread served with these delicious appetizers - it could have been thicker and... More

A friend and I enjoyed our selection of Mediterranean foods. The appetizer trio of dips was delicious. Each spread/dip stood well on its own, but combined they were even more delicious. The Moroccan Bastilla was a real treat. I learned to make it while visiting the country several years ago and find it well worth the hours of work at... More

I love Mediterranean food and came here with high expectations. We had a friend visiting from Greece. We got the sampler appetizer, which was plentiful, but not spectacular. The hummus was bland and the dolmades were so bad, we didn't eat them. Their falafel was cold. It was a cold evening and we were outside so I wanted a mint... More

We ate at the bar and the food was very good! The bartender Kyle serves amazing cocktails! Mike the owner is an awesome guy and greets all the guests. If you have not discovered this little gem in Kent you are missing out.

We stopped in late night on a Saturday evening to grab a bite to eat. Most of the other restaurants in Kent were closed and Laziza was recommended to us by another restaurateur (getting ready to close for the evening). There is outdoor seating on the street side of the restaurant, however, we were seated inside. The décor is Middle... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Laziza in Kent, Ohio. The food was delicious, the atmosphere from casual to formal at your choice, and the atmosphere and location were excellent.

Meal was fantastic. There was 8 of us that came in yesterday on a Saturday for lunch. It was not busy, about three other tables were only full in the whole place. It was a while we waited for our food so we weren't happy about that. They didn't bring out all the dishes at once so it wasn't to... More

Good service, varied menu and central location. Seemed to be well used by the locals so we went in and found out why.

This restaurant has an upscale interior, but they put paper on the white tablecloths. Candles are on the tables, but they remain unlit. Servers are very friendly, but very slow and inattentive. Menu descriptions sound great, but the food is just ok. See a pattern? There were specials on weekdays, and they had a few craft beers on draft. Full... More

Again immediately across the street from the University Hotel. Very sophisticated for a mid-western university town. Excellent Mediterranean menu, great service and nice ambiance.
