Went to this one night while traveling in Chicago. Nice place. Food was ok. Belly dancer was a nice touch. My only complaint was the inability of our waiter to swap out our desert when the Lebanese dessert just wasn't to our liking. Might be a little bratty mentioning that but most places I've been to would have done that... More

Appetizers were so delicious and main course meats were so delicious with rice and vegetables! The belly dancer was gorgeous and super talented!

What a neat place! The ouside was unassuming, but the inside was a nice surprise. Make a reservation; this place gets packed! We were lucky to go early, so we got a table. It is BYOB, which is fine. Food was great. We wanted something more than just falafel and we were not disappointed. The appetizers were spot-on, just like... More

With every intention of going for Italian we changed our mind at the last minute and decided upon middle eastern food and happened upon Kan Zanan. Never having been there before we didn’t know what to expect but was open to something new. The place looks like it been there for a while and isn’t very large with tables placed... More

I have eaten here several times with family and for business 3 times. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and went the extra mile for our large groups. My favorite is the beef shish kebabs- they are tender, flavorful and generous portions. I highly recommend for any size group!

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
