“It has a great atmosphere.”
“The food was dry - I had a filet mignon shish kabob (the special of the night) and lacked any taste of olive oil or salt for that matter.”
“Everything on the menu is fantastic!”
“This is a great place to go with friends or even for a romantic date!”
“The exterior isn't much, but the dining room is comfortable and warm, and the service is prompt.”
“The Middle Eastern fare here is delicious (I love the silky hummus and the crispy falafels) and the prices are very reasonable.”
Good Lebanese Food!. The restaurant was closed for our group of 100. We rec'd very personl service. And everyone loved the great Belly Dancer! (And the food was good too)
Good Food if You Like Garbage. Seriously?! Who are these people that venture to this place? Have they not eaten amazing Lebanese food and been tricked into thinking this is good? This place is awful. The food was dry - I had a filet mignon shish kabob (the special of the night) and lacked any taste of olive oil or salt for that matter. The appetizers were mediocre in taste and small in size (the hummous was the worst thing I've ever had). I decided to go on a Friday night to catch the belly dancers, which were the highlight of this restaurant. This place has horrible acoustics because everything echos and people yell to hear eachother. I had a headache when I left and I can't be sure it was due to the loudness of the restaurant or the disgusting food. This is a definite pass.
Best restaurant ever!!!. I stumbled across this place 4 years ago with some friends and we decided to give it a try. And I'm so glad we did because since then it is my favorite restaurant!!! It has a great atmosphere. You can either sit at a regular table or you can take off your shoes and sit on pillows around a table! It is BYOB which helps cut down on cost when going out! But cost isn't really even an issue when dining there because everything is so moderately priced!! I love the mediterranean spinach which is like $11, and there are always leftovers to take home! Everything on the menu is fantastic!!!!!!! Just writing this review makes me want to go there right now! This is a great place to go with friends or even for a romantic date!
Shawarma-Licious!!!. Mmmmmmm, chicken Shawarma. I really dig this place, a great lunch spot in River North. Service is so-so, but what?s really important is the food. Best Chicken Shawarma in Chicago. I cant say Im an expert at Middle Eastern food, but I Know Yummy when I taste it, and Kan Zaman has plenty of it! Price could be a little lower for lunch in my opinion, but whatever, its not outrageous. Did I mention the Chicken Shawarma (with extra Tahini sauce)!
Fabulous Lebanese food!. Excellent Place - have lived in the MIddle East for a few years and this is the real deal - exactly as it is in Middle East!
Great experience. The food was delicious, service excellent (although it wasn't busy at the time) and the atmosphere was pleasing. We had a few appetizers, lamb and beef sausages in tomato sauce, which was excellent, and also the Baba Ghounoush, which was ok. There were four of us so we all got something different and shared a little. The beef kabobs were excellent as was the chicken. Meals include white rice or wheat, all of which was good. You also get salad or soup, my Lentil soup was excellent. One person in our party ordered a spinach dish which was delicious. We all had coffee and baklava for dessert and our total bill for dinner was $101.00 before tip. I will definitely stop here again the next time I am in town.
pricey. They charged me $14 for a $8-lunch entree because it was a weekend!for a fatoosh, shawerma plate ,soup and hooka the bill was $58.Portions were small.food was good tho.Atmosphere was nice.
FORMER favorite lunch spot.
I used to go to Kan Zaman for lunch almost twice a week. The food is fantastic, and the service is good. It was a great deal, for about $10 or less. However, a couple of weeks ago, the menu changed and the priced jumped, making the lunch about $14 now, and it is just not the same deal. I know a lot of people in my office, and friends in the River North area used to go here as often as I did for lunch, and now all are boycotting it! what a disappointment!!! i have a feeling they will lose a lot of business from this stunt, but if you want a good mediterranean lunch, it really is great. im just so mad about the price!
try the combo kabob or vegetarian combo!
Great Middle Eastern Restaurant. The food was so good here! And, it is true Middle Eastern food according to my Middle Eastern friends. As for the atmosphere, it's great except when the belly dancer is doing her thing. It gets a little too loud in the restaurant. Other than that, this is a great place that includes hookas.
Just Like Mom's!. This place has quickly risen to the top of my favorite spots list. It's easy to get to, the staff is fantastic, the decor and ambience is great for a sophisticated dinner with friends or a romantic dinner with "you know who." Top it all off with a delicious menu of traditionally prepared and presented Lebanese specialties. You can't go wrong. I also love that the wait staff didn't pressure us to go when we clearly wanted to sit and chat over our tea after dinner. Very european -- they give you your space and approach when you appear ready for your bill.
