I have eaten here quite a few times and the food is always great, but just don't expect too much in terms of an amazing restaurant meal---more like slow but steady family style meal. My favorite thing to do is go here with a group on Friday nights. Its BYOB (there is a Binny's 2 blocks away) and there is... More

Our waiter had such bad attitude from the minute we walked in. It seemed like there were busy getting ready for a large party and didn't want yo be bothered with two people!! I wish they told us they were closed instead of that sour angry face that served us. He was so slow to take our order or bring... More

In the heart of River North this place was a real find, fantastic Lebanese food coupled with great service made our recent visit great. My wife can not wait for our next trip to Chicago to go back here for dinner.

A low-key restaurant serving good Mediterranean / Lebanese meals at reasonable prices. It is a good addition to the rich variety of ethnic restaurants in Chicago.

I found this restaurant about 2 years ago on one of our trips to Chicago. I have praised this place and recommended it to several of our friends. We had planned a trip to Chicago with another family for July 9 thru the 11th in order to see the Taste of Chicago. I told the other family that we HAVE... More

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... More

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!

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...

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.
