Upscale Mediterranean in Kent

Nicely decorated Mediterranean spot on the edge of the KSU campus. A little more upscale than typical college town fare. It was pretty quiet when we went (early weekday lunch), servers were attentive and friendly. Food was (only) OK, vegetables and lamb a bit overcooked

Wide range of ethnic and American food. Really enjoy the Mediterranean dishes. Reservations a must for weekends.

I really like good Mediterranean food, but this restaurant served large portions of not so good Mediterranean food. Dare I say it, good ethnic food in the Midwest Is often sacrificed to the need for large portions, and emphasis on quality and authenticity goes out of the window.

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. 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

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
