A word from Kan Zaman
A Chicago Lebanese Restaurant where fringe-beaded lamps, a long shelf of Middle Eastern knicknacks and dolls make for an exotic, upscale-casual vibe.

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food and great service. During the week it is very quiet and on the weekends it has great energy!"

  • "I think this place is really fun if you have a big group of friends or family. I don't think it's very fun when you just want to do date night or small girls night. My friend and I went on a Saturday night-- thought it would be a good idea since it's BYOB and we like Middle Eastern food. My biggest issue is that they sat us at a dirty table in the hot, dark corner by the bathrooms.. so I asked for a clean table that was not tucked away. And the lady just put us at the next table over and said we couldn't sit in the main area (even though it was empty at 7pm..). It wasn't ideal, but we weren't going to make a scene. I've been here before with a big group and it was a blast, but we just had mixed-feelings about our recent trip."

  • "Rare to find BYOB in river north.... The experience was unique however the main entre (chicken shwarma) was just average. The appetizer and dessert was excellent."

  • "We really enjoyed our meal here. It seems we were the only ones that did not know this place was BYOB."

  • "Hookah was fun but they did not tell us there is an extra charge if you have more than one flavor"

  • "I went to Kan Zaman with my girlfriend for valentine's day for her first Lebanese restaurant experience and we weren't disappointed. They gave us a nice booth with pillows. The staff had everything ready for us including a bucket of ice for the wine I brought (BYOB is a great plus!) and we didn't have to wait long for our food. I would definitely recommend Kan Zaman."

  • "Didn't know exactly what to expect and had a great experience. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful and genuinely pleased to have us there. Note: byob."

  • "BYOB. Now serving vapor hookah. Food is some of the best middle eastern/ Lebanese food I've ever had. Highly recommend the beef shish."

  • "My wife and I have been to this place close to ten times. The food is great and the vibe is different from the standard. The price of the food is very reasonable. Also its BYOB (binny's is around the corner), which also keeps the price down."

  • "I have dined at Kan Zaman two prior times for my birthday. The food is easy to share, BYOB, weekend Belly Dancer. This last time I went there was a group of 5 of us. We ordered a lot of appetizers, probably the equivalent of two each. By 7:45 we were full from all the apps. and didn't want to hang around for another 1.25 hours waiting for the Belly Dancer. When we requested the bill, we were told we HAD TO order entrees. No where on the menu, on the website, on open table did I see anything about being REQUIRED to order entrees on a "show night". Our server tried to get the manager to waive this requirement but he refused. I found this very unethical and poor business."

  • "I enjoyed most aspects of this place save for the service - when we first got in (I was with my partner) our host waved us to a table near the window (it was mostly empty when we arrived at 6:30 on a Thursday evening), but my partner spotted some lovely tables where you could sit on cushions round a table in the booth, so on our request they switched us there. I wondered if they were just doing this to us until I saw him do the same to another couple/group who came in later, who also spotted our style of tables. Perhaps they're harder to clean...? We ordered two appetizers and a main to split, which was good as the main dish (moussaka) was huge. Everything was delicious, maybe due to a large amount of added oil. Lovely dim lights & space."

  • "The hummus was great and also the chicken veggie soup! Huge bowl and super tasty! The salads we had were not so flavorful. Maybe it was an off day, bc I have had this food before and it was better before."
