Kanzaman Lebanese Restuarant
EPICURE, EATING OUT - The Age Richmond's Kan Zaman stands out as a restaurant making a big effort to elevate the profile and standards of the cuisine. It's not all that expensive, but they're not afraid to offer something expensive, such as a whole baby snapper. The food is lively, the presentation thoughtful, the crockery contemporary and the entire package a refreshing change from the dips/falafel/kebab and tabbouleh scenario usually encountered. Like the menu says, it's "fine Middle Eastern cuisine". John Lethlean 458-460 Bridge Road Richmond (03) 9429-3402
