“Lunch”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

I was very impressed with the service, the food and the overall atmosphere. I ordered the calamari and the grilled vegetable salad with salmon, which was delicious except that the salad was sent back due to an overwhelming amount of parsley in it. A fresh one was bought out and it was truly outstanding. The vegetables were fresh and grilled to perfection as was the salmon. I was a little disappointed that the wine I wanted was only sold by the bottle and not available by the glass. (False Bay sav blanc). But overall a lovely lunch well worth the price.

“A real diamond in the rough”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We stayed at the Surtees Hotel in Pimlico and set out one night to see what we could stumble upon for dinner. After surveying the half dozen restaurants in the area, we elected to have a drink at Kazan and peruse the menu. I ordered a dirty vodka martini and was surprised to find that the olives were au natural - unpickled - and, even more suprising, that I preferred them that way. Gave a slight olive oil taste to the drink instead of the usual saltiness. Really good. We elected to stay for dinner and were rewarded with an outstanding meal. They make a hummus-like pepper "paste" appetizer with pita for dipping that was amazing. Our server was incredibly nice, he bent over backwards to make sure we enjoyed our experience. Can't say enough about this place, I had never tried Turkish food before but now I'm a fan thanks to Kazan.

“Wonderful Turkish dinner”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had falafel and humus kavurma for starters. The humus was amazing with the lamb mixed in. For the main course we had the Ottoman grill and the Adana Kofte. Both highly recommended. The Kofte was mouth watering with loads of flavor. The grill was a wide presentation of almost very meat they make. It really lets you taste all the different flavors and seasonings. Had a glass of the Argentinian Malbec that balanced very well with the meal. I will be back.

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We visited in early August as a celebration and were very impressed with the food, service and cocktails at Kazan.

The food really was excellent! The meat in the grill dishes was of a very high quality and cooked to perfection. Portion sizes were spot on as we were (Just!) able to eat starters, main course and desert!

i would highly recommend Kazan to anyone, for any occasion!

Reasonably priced too

“Good Turkish Food!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My friend recommended Kazan for lunch after seeing an exhibition at Tate Britain. We had the mezze platter for 2, which was nicely presented and tasty. The restaurant has stylish décor and there is a lovely aroma of fresh food as you enter! Will definitely return when back In London.
