I went to this place several times only because it's the only hookah bar in the Cleveland Metro area (to my knowledge). Although the hummus was very good, the rest of the menu is just average, and the prices were higher than the quality of the food. The hookah is good - they offer a variety of flavors. One hookah costs $10, which is a fair deal since each lasts about 1 1/2 hours. Smoking a hookah is a very relaxing experience. Unfortunately, here at Kan Zaman the experience is anything but relaxing. They blast dance and pop music on the overhead TVs, even during the daytime: usually they just switch on a Middle-Eastern Music Video channel and play it at a volume similar to that of a large sports bar. The music is annoying and brings down the mood of the hookah experience. I've been to other hookah bars, and the atmosphere has been much more relaxed and chill. All the times I've been here, my party was the only group in the whole place. And even though we were the only group - the service was horrible and unprofessional! I had to walk to the back of the restaurant to get my waitress' attention, otherwise be stuck waiting a half hour. On a separate note, my boyfriend and I were in the area and stopped by for lunch a little after their posted opening time, only to have the cleaning crew turn us away because they ""weren't ready"". We ended up waiting outside in the cold for 40 minutes before they'd let us in! After that experience we decided not to return.
Pros: Hookah, Average Middle-Eastern Food
Cons: Service, Ambience, Loud Music, Not the safest Area
