Every Thursday we have been preparing vegan lunch boxes for the Covent Garden Community Centre @Seven Dials Club charity. As we go into winter, we believe that it is important to think about and help the homeless on our doorstep here in Central London. It’s heart-breaking to see the makeshift temporary beds in shop entrances and around London, where a lot of the homeless try to sleep.
And every Friday, our chefs and staff prepare between 250 to 500 vegan lunch boxes which are collected by The Felix Project, a charity that provides good food for good causes, at our sister restaurant Liban Tapas in South Woodford, which are then distributed to the elderly and care homes around London. Every bit of help matters, and we ask for your support wherever you are able to give it this winter, as this year is a particularly difficult year for everyone.
LUNCH FOR JUST £13
Eat Out to Help Out may have come to an end, but here at Lazeez we have a special Autumn Lunch Offer for £13 to help those of you going back to the office in Central London and West End, available Monday to Sunday until 4:00pm.
So, do come and try our new healthy autumn menu, which includes our delicious tapas dishes, tasty wraps, hot grills and sweet desserts, on our cosy Autumn Terrace with its pretty flower wall, overlooking Selfridges.
We look forward to seeing you here soon!
As we move into Week 6 of the coronavirus lockdown , here at Lazeez we have been doing our bit to help frontline workers in the NHS and charities who are helping to feed to less fortunate in our society, by preparing 500 to 1,000 meals a week and delivering them four to five times per week.
We are working with Sovereign Partners who are providing us with sustainable packaging as well as the NHS and The Felix Project.
Our chefs prepare Halal Lebanese meals consisting of three options: Lebanese rice and mixed vegetables with our own special sauce or chickpeas with fresh herbs and tomatoes or Lebanese rice with grilled chicken and our special sauce. All our rice is gluten free.
We were delighted to receive this glowing review on TripAdvisor recently from a customer visiting London from Israel.
I looked for a restaurant near the Oxford Street, and with my amazing luck I saw this restaurant and it was the best find I ate during my visit in London! Great service, amazing food and really good price!
I recommend the Tabbouleh Salad and the stuffed Lebanese bread.
Thank you, Lazeez Tapas, If I will ever be in London be sure that I will come to you!”
Yesterday evening we celebrated the launch of our new winter menu and terrace here at Lazeez in the heart of Mayfair with some of our regular customers and a few celebrities, on what turned out to fortunately be a rare dry and sunny day in London after the relentless rain of the last two weeks, so we were all very thankful.
The star of the evening was undoubtedly Caprice, who showed off her fabulous figure in a cut-away white midi dress. Caprice is currently training for her debut in Dancing on Ice which airs in January.
The figure-hugging white dress featured a criss-cross design across her chest and was complimented with a fluffy white shawl, silver bangles and hooped earrings.
We also had some of the stars from The Only Way Is Essex, including Ella Rae Wise, 18, Chloe Ross, 26, and Kelsey Stratford, 18. Ella and Kelsey were wearing an oversized jumper dress while Chloe wore a plunging neckline and figure-hugging black midi-dress.
Chloe Brockett from TOWIE, also joined us on the new winter terrace, wearing a pair of leather trousers with a white blazer and sporting a scarlet handbag.
Former Big Brother contestant Simon Goss hosted the evening for us with his larger than life personality charming guests and celebrities alike.
Nicola Hughes joined in the fun, as did Love Island’s Chloe Crowhurst, and the evening became a lot livelier when a belly dancer performed in front of delighted guests.
Our new winter menu is now available, and we look forward to welcoming you and your family and friends to our cosy and heated winter terrace just across from Selfridges this autumn and winter.
Last week we were featured on the Islam Channel talking about our authentic Lebanese cuisine here at Lazeez Tapas in Mayfair.
The programme is a contemporary lifestyle magazine style show with special guests exploring a range of interesting topical issues around the Muslim community.
One of the presenters came to visit us and try our range of mezze or tapas dishes which are typical of what you would find in restaurants in Beirut and across Lebanon, as our chef Ali explains. Lebanese food is most often eaten due to its health benefit as the food tends to be grilled baked or sautéed in olive oil and vegetables are often eaten raw. And like most Mediterranean countries the food eaten is dictated by the seasons and what is readily available.
Back in the studio, our General Manager, Javier Ramos speaks about the history of Lazeez in London and how it has progressed from a simple coffee shop to the popular landmark Lebanese restaurant it is today just across from Selfridges. He goes on to talk about the simplicity of the Lebanese food and says that the taste comes from the quality of the ingredients and process of how we cook our food. Our recipes are traditional and come from the rural areas of Lebanon, giving that authenticity people in London like so much.
Javier goes on to speak about the importance we as a society here in Britain place on what we eat these days and how the Lebanese diet fits in so well with this.

We are delighted to have received this wonderful 5 Bubble review on TripAdvisor which says that we’re the “Best Lebanese in London”. The reviewer says:
“Got there on a Tuesday night and the place was full. After hours of walk around central London for shopping with my family I could get best, in just few minutes they make the place for 4. The staff and the food was just amazing, big thanks to the Emilio to make our evening even better! Don’t miss the felafel!!”
We are delighted to have been recognised as the best Lebanese Restaurant in Central London in this year’s prestigious 2018 Food & Drink Awards by LUXLife Magazine.
Every year the Food & Drink Awards reveals the best establishments offering sumptuous cuisine from across the globe.

They feel it incumbent to therefore also include the food producers and manufacturers who allow many of our favourite eateries to be stocked with some of the best ingredients., which in our case come from both Lebanon and sourced locally from top quality suppliers.
