“Ho Hum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

Kan Zaman was recommended by the hotel concierge. We love ethnic food and were looking forward to the experience. We left with that ho hum feeling about the place.

Service was okay.... not bad, not great....just ho hum. The waiter did his job, but added little spice to the experience.

I started out with the soup which was wonderful and thought this was the beginning of a special meal. My entree, a flat type steak was ho hum. Plenty of meat and somewhat dry, . The rice had a kick to it. No wine or other drinks served...BYOB.... which we did not know.

Interesting atmosphere. We ate at a table, but there were others who eat at a cushioned table where you had to remove your shoes. Not sure at my age how I would have been comfortable had I decided to give this type of seating a try.

I usually love going to ethnic places and normally give rave reviews when I find the owner and his/her staff doing what they can to make your dining experience somewhat unique. In this case, Kan Zaman was just another eatery that served food.

“Go for the food, expect nothing else”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

Went there a few times, mainly for the food. One of the better global cuisine restaurants in Chicago downtown. The service, however, could use some extra dose of courtesy...being turned away from a restaurant is never a pleasant memory!

“Lebanese flavors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

I met some friends for a quick dinner at Kan Zaman. One member of the team was vegetarian, so we decided dinner at Kan Zaman was in order. We arrived early in the evening, so the restaurant wasn't busy. The food arrived promptly and was absolutely delicious. We tried several appetizers and entrees and everything was great. It is a casual restaurant with great food.

“Hip Happening Place with Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2013

Atmosphere is laid back. Real local feel. Food was excellent. Portions are large. Our party of 4 shared several appetizers and then each couple shared an entree. The patron really got into the belly dancing performance which made for a lively night.
