LaZeez Restaurant's culinary maestros dash rich Indian and Pakistani seasonings atop entrees before sizzling them in a tandoor oven or a traditional Indian wok. The restaurant's extensive menu brims with specialties such as ginger-kissed punjabi lamb korma ($10.95) or chicken vindaloo, which zings taste buds with a zesty sauce ($9.95) and witty punch lines. Seasoned shrimp tandoori ($13.95) blasts taste buds with morsels of flavor after emerging from its clay-oven fortress, and aloo gobi corrals cauliflower and potatoes in a curry sauce to entice herbivorous appetites ($8.95). Diners can also munch on slices of naan baked in 10 varieties ($1.75–$4), including jalapeno cheese ($2.95). Lush plants and ivory drapes hang in LaZeez's interior, and the eatery's staff prides itself on ushering refreshments and entrees with cordiality.
Walls the color of melted butter guide the eye to floor-to-ceiling front windows lined with potted greenery. An ornate metal watering vessel sits beside them, always at the ready to nourish the verdant foliage or pour tea for an especially thirsty Mad Hatter. To pair with these decorative flourishes, LaZeez's affable chefs prepare Pakistani and northern Indian dishes using traditional equipment such as a clay oven and a wok-like karahi.
In the elegant 80-person dining room, guests can whet their dinner appetites with samosa appetizers––seasoned potatoes and peas nestled inside puff pastry shells that, like Ninja Turtle shells, are rarely found at the beach. Entrees such as spinach cooked with homemade cheese or salmon awash in curry sauce emerge piping hot from the kitchen alongside palate-soothing mango-infused yogurt lassi drinks. Diners can also opt for classic tandoori chicken, lamb, and seafood marinated in spices and prepared grease-free in the clay oven that's hotter than the midday desert sun or a George Foreman grill sizzling a photo of fire in the midday desert sun.
