“Fresh, authentic, excellent; Large portions, attactively presented”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

I have twice dined at Kazan, and the second time was even more enjoyable than the first. The food is varied and authentically Turkish, served in large and attractive portions. The house special - doner kebab - is served on certain days of the week (Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; you can call ahead), and is absolutely worth the trip (I was staying in DC). Rich and aromatic, the doner kebab is a a dish of lamb and veal served in a hearty yogurt-based sauce. An exceptional and filling meal.

The only challange with Kazan, if you are not staying in the Mclean area, is that is does take some time to get there from larger centers. Don't be put off by the fact that Kazan is in a strip-mall--it is a very good restaurant for business or pleasure.

“Fantastic Turkish Food in a Family Friendly Setting”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

This was our first visit to Kazan. We'd heard great things about it, but hadn't dropped in yet. We're glad we did. It was spectacular food. It was a Saturday evening, so Kazan was offering their doner kebab (I don't think it's available every day). It was great: fresh, flavorful meat in a yogurt sauce over sautéed pita bread chunks and covered in fresh tomatoes. Mmm mmm! My wife had a dish with similar ingredients except with bite-sized chunks of chicken. She loved it. Our kids shared a simpler version of the doner kebab. They ate every bite. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the service was speedy. Though it took us some time to get around to our first visit to Kazan, our second visit isn't far away. Give this place a try.

“Friendly Service and Great Food at Kazan”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

I recently ate at Kazan while visiting family in Northern VA. The food was very good and my family had a great meal here. What stands out to me from my experience is how caring the hostesses and wait staff were. Our reservation was for the patio, but when we arrived the weather was getting ugly (rain) so we didn't want to sit outside. Although it was a busy Friday night the hostesses were very attentive and made sure that we were seated at a nice table inside. We appreciated their service and the yummy Turkish meal!
