Great spot! I came with my boyfriend and we had such a great time. The food was so delicious: the noodles are handmade and the broth are just amazing. We got the #2 and #8 (vegan option). The waitress was so friendly, funny and helpful. Would definitely go back!
Food and service was great, I just think $29.00 just for a bowl of soba noodles with a chicken leg is a bit much for me. Would like to go back more but for now can't really.
Very stylish Japanese restaurant with delicious noodles and wontons. The lotus chips appetizer goes great with beer.
I've passed by this place multiple times, and wondered what it was, eventually finding out it was going to be a ramen spot. Original Tatsu founder, Ryu, is behind Kazan.
Got the spicy lamb chop ramen that’s served with handmade shin soba noodles of varying thickness in a claypot that’s like a Sichuan-esque hotpot. Server recommended it, took 10-15 minutes since she said it’s pretty much done from scratch. The spiciness is pretty up there initially, with some ma la numbing. I've read on a forum that their other bowls like the truffle shio were salt bombs. Mine was fine, teetering on the border of being too salty, but just right. After a while though, once the spiciness abated, it’s more apparent that it might actually be a little bit too salty, even for a savory fanatic like me. Noodles were nice, with a supple bite to them. Not exactly sure why the widths range from thin to thick. If I had to pick one, I’d go with the thickest variety looking like fettuccine since it might be a better fit in a Sichuan hot pot riff. Lamb chops were seared and cooked to medium. It wasn’t that strong of a sear as I would usually want, maybe this was the chef’s intention. There wasn’t that much flavor if simply eaten by itself, but because of the on-point doneness, it’ s easy to dip the chops in the spicy broth and bite the meat off and is kind of fun to do. Reminded me of the lamb chop “popsicles” I had at Vij’s in Vancouver where you could similarly have the curry as a dip. Would I prefer maybe slices of [seared] lamb belly instead? Possibly, it could work better, I’m not 100% sure.
Lotus chips were pretty good, thinly sliced and fried tossed in a bit of salt.
The space itself is pretty cool and modern, with the noodle machines by the window like some pasta shops or Italian restaurants. Service was very friendly and attentive. Ryu came by to ask for feedback too. Saw someone else instructing a staff member how the kitchen works, looks like they’re still working out kinks.
I'm not sure what to make of Kazan. Currently it tastes like a 4/5, but I rated it 3/5 mainly because of the pricing, the biggest dealbreaker is the price tag, the lamb chop ramen being the most expensive bowl at $35, others in the high $20s. It’s very interesting for sure and there’s quite a bit to like I think even though the execution doesn’t land perfectly. La Cienega in BH is restaurant row, but even then, $25-$35 for ramen is hard to justify unless it’s world class. Granted, Kazan has only been open for a month, and I think Ryu does care in trying something different. And especially on a historical, established street with powerhouse restaurants like Matsuhisa and Lawry's nearby, it might be the kind of restaurant to break the mold and inspire change. Reminded me of MTN when I had the dungeness crab ramen, which also had a really good, unique broth, noodles were ok, and that was already expensive at 26 bucks. I guess if one considers the Asian noodles vs Italian pasta argument certain chefs like David Chang debate regarding cost and pricing, maybe I could see a day where such a price could be justified. Lamb isn’t the cheapest meat in the world and I’ve definitely had worse tasting [seafood] pasta that cost the same or more, served in smaller portion sizes, like at Madeo. Then again, there's Iki Ramen in Ktown doing a great job with a number of different ramens and small dishes while being much cheaper. But I do hope that Kazan succeeds in some shape or form in trying to be an artisan spot serving uniquely tasting bowls of ramen. Let’s just say I left on a somewhat optimistic note, interested to try the parmesan yuzu chicken leg ramen I had my eye on next time.
Very tasty noodle! The house made soba noodle has good texture and the broth is light but full of flavor. It is not cheap but the experience is very impressive. Will definitely come back.
