I've been to this restaurant several times for lunch as its a frends favorite. Falafel were over done hockey pucks twice. Wait staff spends more time bsing among themselves rather than paying attention to customers. Yesterday's service was snail-like and my wrap was cold. The normally good fries were greasy. Not really worth the time or the money.

This is the first restaurant I've ever given a 5 rating--food was excellent, service possibly the best I've ever had, prices were fine for the quality, a broad menu, fine ambiance, and they even have a kids menu and indoor and outdoor seating! You can sample a brew or an entree, no problem. We had the Vegetarian Sampler appetizer, which... More

Laziza is a very nice restaurant in downtown Kent. It is beautifully decorated, and the food is authentic. The cocktails are delicious.....I recommend the Gentlemen's cosmo!

Choice of Mediterranean, steak or seafood makes Laziza a perfect dining destination. Lamb is superb and they have more ways than imaginable to serve beer and chicken. Welcome quiet among some very focused diners; their meals are clearly divine. From the delightful dinner rolls to delicious French Onion soup to our main courses, we were pleased by every moment.

The dishes are expertly prepared and served. There is ample variety for both the timid and those who relish the flavor of the middle east.

A real authentic experience. Mike (Muhammad), the owner is from Ramallah, Palestine and has brought his amazing cuisine with him. The restaurant is a two, story fine-dining experience although most patrons are rather causal and the prices are more mid-range. I had the maklouba and we ordered the gambit of Middle Eastern apps and dishes. Excellent baba ganoush, hummus, and... More

I took my family there for lunch and everyone was more than happy. My mom is always skeptical when it comes to foreign food but she said the food here tastes great. My kids also love their dish.

I've been here before and loved the food. However a few months ago we waited over an hour and a half for our food to arrive. I felt so bad for the waitress she looked so stressed. Manager gave us our food for free. Hesitant to go back...loved the food but the service was questionable. Maybe just an off night?

Visited for the first time on 5/11/16 with a party of four. We all had good food and the service was attentive and not bothersome. Pricing was a tad on the high side given that there was a great amount of rice but not much more expensive ingredients in a few of the meals we chose.

High class dining experience... Laziza is great all around with no noticeable flaws. The wait staff is attentive, polite and professional. The food is tremendously awesome (filet melts in your mouth). If you come to Kent, you must go to Laziza!!!
