The premises are clean and well-designed. Service staff is really friendly, a big plus for this modest, family-owned and operated outfit. Extensive menu. Sampled the Lamb Kabab platter. It was wonderful -- full of delicious Australian Spring Lamb cubes in pita wrap! The grilled meat needed only a few pieces of caramelized onions and gherkin(?) to make a terrific dish. Tasty and quite healthy, though not the cheapest choice on the menu.

My wife and I drive from Upstate New York to Washington, D.C. to visit our grandchildren. For years we have been looking for a good lunch stop in the Allentown area. This is the place!

Yes, it is a storefront in a strip mall. But, the restaurant is clean, the family that owns and runs the place is very friendly, the service is wonderful, and the food is GREAT!

We have been looking for this place for years. Now it will become a destination as well as a good place to stop in Allentown. What a find. We would be there all the time if we lived in the area.

Now, about the food: Mediterranean chicken shawarma and lamb or chicken kebabs are all great as is the spinach pie. The baklava and honey cake (made with a little orange water) are perfect: Not too sweet, not too heavy.

My wife and I don't write many reviews, this is only our second. There are too many people who seem to have to write about loving or hating everything. When we find a restaurant where the cooks like good food and love to show off their culture to their customers, we must comment.

What makes this place so special is that they use only the best ingredients. They honor themselves and their customers by providing the best a reasonable cost. The fast food restaurants and chains cut corners to maximize their profits. Lazeez provides the best ingredients, cooked with love, at a fair price. What more could anyone ask for?

This was our second wonderful visit to Lazeez.

You order your food at the counter and they bring it out to your table. We were greeted warmly by the owner, who explained their menu and the care they put in cooking everything fresh on the premises - "no canned items are used and there are no microwave ovens on the premises:. His mom and sister were in the back cooking and he joined them after taking our orders. The Shawarma are prepared using freshly stacked cuts or meat not a processed roll.

We ordered Chicken Shawarma and Beef Sejok - both were excellent - juicy, aromatic and flavorful. We got sides of baba ghanouj, which had an excellent roasted flavor, and delicious hummus.

The care that the family puts into their food is evident in its preparation. The food is not cheap, you can get Shawarma less expensive elsewhere, but the flavors and the friendliness are worth it.

One note - the restaurant closes early at 7 pm everyday so plan accordingly.

Small eat in or take out in strip mall with phenomenal food. The generous owner bends over backwards to make sure you are pleased with your visit. We had chicken shawarma, kebabs. Spinach pie and organic free range spring lamb over rice. All spiced perfectly! Finished meal with hot Arabic tea, baklava, and honey cake. Deelish! Will be back for sure!
