“Lovely Saturday Night Out”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

We rather blagged our way into the Kazan after turning up without a reservation [definitely recommended]. They offered us a seat at the counter right in front of the sushi chefs and fish counter. They weren't the most comfortable seats in the place but we thoroughly enjoyed the evening and had no complaints whatsoever.

Although we have eaten Japanese before we have no real clue about protocol when it comes to working the menu so we relied pretty much on the excellent waiter and his patient explanations. We ended up with a super salad of greens, seared tuna and a sharp dressing, some standard and some more sophisticated sushi and, the piece de resistance, a plate of amazingly delicate prawn tempura. The chocolate and raspberry cake which followed may not have been Japanese but it was good and so was the bottle of Canarian Rose we demolished.

This wasn't the best restaurant food I've ever eaten but it was good and the whole experience had a coherent quality which earned it five out of five. And we didn't think it was too expensive either for a place and a meal as sophisticated as this.

“Salt overdose.”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

A few friends had been to Kazan and said how good the food was so we decided to give it a try when we visited Tenerife.
The restaurant itself has very little charm, almost no natural light and the air-conditioning was on maximum, luckily I had a cardi in my bag. The service was alright but nothing special. there seemed to be a good number of waiters for the number of tables. The decor was calming and all the crockery was simple and clean.
We ordered a roast vegetable and tuna salad and an assortment of sushi. The salad had far too much salt, the roast vegetables were just peppers and onions, and if I remember rightly there was just lettuce, a lot of it. The tuna was very good, seared on the outside and pink on the inside. The sushi was very good, expertly prepared by the japanese (I presume) chefs working at the bar. The soy sauce was extremely watery and there was only a tiny quantitiy of ginger.
When it came to ordering dessert we were expecting something japanese but sadly we were only offered western style desserts, including chocolate cake, I asked if they had mochis but no they didn't. My husband had the chocolate cake and we had a green tea which was served in a lovely metal pot.
We have visited japan and love to eat in japanese restaurants but sadly this one didn't live up to my expectations. I was expecting a much more japanese menu and perhaps a few more vegetarian or seaweed options. Yes the fish was top quality and the presentation of the dishes very good, but it is not a place I would rush back to.

“This is 1st class!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This is a 1st class Japanese! And I am selective on this topic!

You will find outstanding food here. Really, really good. And extra friendly staff, which seems to be pretty rare in Santa Cruz.

This is a tiny, little place, a bit hidden in a side street, however not far from the promenade and the pedestrian shopping area.

Go there and get excited! It is worth it!
