Kan Zeman Store #1 on University closing as of 5-1-2011!

Sadly, we've lost our lease, so we're moving our operations across the street to our Med Wraps on University location (209 University Ave., Palo Alto). However, we're still offering the same great catering and dining options as before, just across the street! Just call us at 650-289-0866 or check out the new catering menu. Hope to see you at our other location!

Serving the Palo Alto community since 2002, Kan Zeman strives to bring the exciting Old World flavors of Turkish, Greek, Lebanese, and Jordanian cuisine to the Peninsula in a friendly, comfortable environment. Owner Abraham Khalil (the man behind Palo Alto’s popular Mediterranean Wraps restaurant) has continued his tradition of excellence, featuring a mouth-watering variety of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes at value-conscious prices that make them even more irresistible.

Kan Zeman’s reputation is built on the basics: simple, well-prepared dishes that burst with flavor. You’ll find…

  • classic appetizers (according the Palo Alto Weekly, our hummus “sets a new standard for the Bay Area”)
  • hearty entrees featuring tender, marinated beef and lamb
  • tasty and healthful vegetarian options
  • authentic Middle Eastern pastries (which the San Francisco Chronicle described as “exotic and divine”)
  • a fine selection of beer and wines
  • and more!

Kan Zeman is open 7 days a week, from 11am to 10pm.

Welcome to our new website!
