We were invited to the opening ceremony of Laziz Restaurant located at Mont Kiara. I have never been to a middle eastern restaurant for a very long time, so I was more than delighted to savour some middle eastern dishes.

Welcome to Laziz (menu book)...
We were there half an hour before the opening. We met the owner, Mr Mohamad and chatted with him for a brief moment as he was busy with the preparation. Mr Mohamad who is from Yemen is a friend of my wife.

The beautiful ceiling lights (in sketch format)...The tiles with Middle Eastern artwork...
Family members, relatives and friends thronged this makan place at 8.00pm and everybody was well dressed for the opening ceremony (except for us, we were in our office attire :p)

We had a bit of everything. We had saute beef, hommos, vegetable platter, lamb cubes, kebab, fried chicken (middle eastern style) and pesto. We actually wanted to learn more about the dishes but since the owner and his personnel were busy, we decided not to bug them.

I should have eaten the food separately and accordingly. Some of sauces provided were meant to be taken with certain dishes. Instead, I mixed everything together in a plate. One of the creamy looking white sauce was really hot. I swallowed a spoonful of it (thinking that it could be as sweet as mayonnaise) but I was totally wrong. From there on, everything tasted very "pedas", making it difficult for me to evaluate the taste of other dishes I had throughout the night.

We promised Mr Mohamad that we will come again and will go for his specialty dishes.

Indeed it’s a memorable experience we had at Laziz restaurant during our last visit to KL, we were welcomed and served in a stylish way; the food was great, the staff were friendly and the prices are very reasonable and the meals are generous…. If you are visiting KL please check it out…. Am sure you will enjoy the experience.
