I went for the künefe per a Washington Post Magazine article. I was intrigued by the Orange Baklavá so I ordered *both* desserts. The künefe for tasty, but the Orange Baklavá was outstanding. I expected a traditional nut-filled dessert with orange accents such as orange blossom syrup. Yes, it had orange blossom syrup, but no nuts. It was filled with... More

Back a few lifetimes ago (okay, maybe 20+ years), Kazan was a favorite dining spot for good friends of ours and we got to tag along. The cuisine is outstanding, the service is spot on, and everything you want in fine dining is at Kazan. We were able to return a few nights ago and the flavors of twenty+ years... More

I've been going to Kazan since the restaurant opened in 1980. The service is friendly and the owner is always there to make sure everything runs smoothly. I love the Beyendili Kuzu and Donor Kebab but have had several other entrees and they are all great. The entrees come with a small salad and I usually get either an appetizer... More

Turkish menu, not inexpensive, being in an expensive town. Reliable food and service make Kazan a go-to lunch destination for us. Ignore its location in a shopping mall and enjoy the food. White tablecloths elevate the atmosphere.

We ate lunch. Had the Döner Kebap, only available on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Excellent quality and flavor! I have eaten Döner in many Turkish restaurants and must say that Kazan's is worth a visit.. The ambiance is also nice, blue and white table cloths and white cloth napkins, a fresh flower in a bud vase on each table, professionally... More

I've been eating at Kazan almost since it opened in 1980. Zeynel Uzun is the owner and he is still there everyday. Located in an unassuming strip mall next to Giant Food and CVS, Kazan offers excellent Turkish food, great service and reasonable prices. Many of the wait staff have been there for years. Although there lamb dishes are wonderful,... More

Kazan has a great menu, but almost always we have chosen donner kebab, the house specialty, which it only has on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Having had this dish in many countries, I can safely say that this has to be the best of the lot. Another house specialty is orange baklava. This is a light dessert that is not... More

Four for dinner (I'm gluten intolerant.) It was difficult for me to make a choice because several of my favorites were off limits to me (rice contained orzo). However our server guided me through and helped me choose the Shish Kofte which was the most delicious lamb I've ever had. The seasoning was perfect. Instead or rice, I was offered... More

The first server was very unprofessional and rude. When we recommend soups he made a fun of us that we are trying to order French onion soup in Turkish restaurant. (Then why they have this option)? He didn't even ask if we wanted to order something else after we ordered our dish, instead he pulled out the menu we didn't... More
