Kan Zaman's menu goes beyond the typical Levant offerings with Fish tajen and other unusual dishes. The food is fresh and individually prepared, hence you wait a while for it but that's no problem as you watch the bright lights of the dhows go by and enjoy the shisha fragrances on the air. The food quality is superior, with subtle... More

As we were staying at the affiliated Arabian Courtyard and Orient Guest House, the concierge arranged for a complimentary ride to this arabian-style restaurant next to the Sheik's house. As we had just arrived after nearly 24 hours of travel, this was a nice introduction to old Dubai situated as it is along the Creek and in a traditional arab-style... More

This restaurant is located in Dubai's heritage village. A must go to area for a taste of old Dubai and good Arabic food. Visited Kan Zaman with family and friends. Food quality was excellent and in big portions. (Would recommend most mezze, mixed grills and amazing meat skewers) Service was very good. Best to describe as friendly, attentive and efficient....

Good value for money taking into account the fantastic location and delicious dishes they serve. The heritage village is one of the best places to visit in Dubai and have dinner by it side is a wonderful experience.

The location is nice , though not anything special. The food is less than expected: the mezze dishes come with no spoons in order to serve yourself. The service is very poor; the staff takes the order but forget what you ordered.I ordered chicken with mushrooms and they brought me fish, then kebab and finally the chicken !!!! The dessert...

Located near the Heritage village, traditional arabic food with specialities also from Iran. Fresh tasty starters, good variety of grilled meats and fish, don't miss their fresh lemonade with mint, go for a table by the sea. Very attentive service, good value for money.

We ate here twice on our visit to Dubai. We enjoyed the Lebanese food on offer. Our billl was between 70 and 100 AED each time and we left feeling full both times. It's not fine dining, but it is flavoursome local food at a very reasonable porce. Lovely views of the creek. We were the only tourists there, it... More

Fit for most events. Excellent atmosphere with very good food and up to the level service when not very crowded. Marvelous scenery and appropriate classical music which con-sides with the spirit of the place . Authentic old sham cuisine and huge variety of hot beverages especially the traditional ''cafe on sand" coffee.

For a business meeting, entertaining visiting colleagues, I attended a dinner at this restaurant. The setting is very nice. Right on the creek, with a nice breeze, watching the dhows go back and forth. The mezze (appetizers) were the typical Lebanese/Arabian stuff and quite good. The main courses were a disappointment. A grilled hamour (grouper) was somewhat overdone and a... More

Its been a while since my wife and I ate here. The experience was so poor its important the story be told. We were a little sceptical when we arrived because the premises are large, yet the place had few tables taken. We consulted the waiter, and chose the recomended starters, separate middle eastern dishes. I checked with the waiter... More
