“Very good Mediterranean restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

I was invited by some local business acquaintances during a brief stay in Kent to go dine here and had a very pleasant experience.

The food is mediterranean to near eastern and themed around grilled lamb, chicken and vegetables with rice. The selection is large with many of my personal favorites. i didn't see the wine list and just had a bottle of beer. i didn't explicitly see any taps but might have been mistaken.

The dining room is large and arranged at two levels and tastefully laid out and decorated.
The service was friendly and observant and generally trying to make our experience as pleasant as possible.

A very nice experience all in all!

“Excellent food in new downtown restaurant-- go and enjoy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Laziza has just opened in downtown Kent, and it is a treat! They specialize in Mediterranean food and steaks. The restaurant is on two levels with plenty of windows. We had dinner there with friends recently and we all enjoyed it. Our server was very attentive and our cold food was chilled while our hot food was piping. We began our meal with a smooth glass of Malbec, followed by the Mediterranean Plate, an appetizer which gives you a smple of various Mediterranean foods. Our entrees were delicious, and we enjoyed a slice of cheesecake for dessert. The prices are reasonable, the service is great, the food is delicious, and we liked the ambiance with medium lighting and views of downtown. We can't wait to go back!

“New addition to downtown Kent dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2012

We were pleased to find that this restaurant provides another option for diners in the Kent State University area. It is new, spacious and its staff is both cordial and helpful. The menu appears to be one expanded from a small local lunch place previously operated by the manager. The theme is modified middle-eastern (kabobs, etc.), and portions are large. The quality of ingredients seems to be generally quite good, and most of what we sampled was well prepared. We had their kafta and one of the kabobs; both were good, but not outstanding. Prices were just a bit more than in other places with similar fare in the Akron area, but the ambiance was better. We hope this business will prosper because it offers a welcome addition to the Kent scene.

“Fabulous Food and Ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

Amazing restaurant with gorgeous decor and fabulous food. Mike Awad has great people sensibility and makes everyone feel at home. The Makluba - was delivered to the table as a work of art, drizzled with yogurt - absolutely delicious. This restaurant brings wonderful dining options to Kent Ohio.
