The connection between the European and the Middle-East, the traditional and the modern, the urban and the rural makes the Kanaan brand a distinctive marking point like no other in Berlin. A central location where, under one roof, you can experience all the intensity of the Israeli Arabic and the Arabic Israeli kitchen. A place where you can stock up on the best materials for your home cooking or meet friends for a pastry with some Arabic authentic coffee. A place where you can participate in cooking lessons, indulge on a plate of delicious humus, enjoy the local fresh products at the best price, all with one of a kind purchasing experience. The open kitchen, located at the center of the restaurant and take up a big portion of the complex, leaving no doubt, the food is the core of the brand. All you need to do is sit back and enjoy the show. The customers are welcome to sit at the bar overlooking the kitchen staff, sit down at one of the wooden tables laid out around or choose one of the seating areas at the garden. During the day the restaurant offers two menus. The lunch menu motive is "eat & run" – it offers a selection of vegan vegetarian dishes that are served in pitas that are baked daily at our bakery along with special dishes that change on a daily basis. The evening menu – "sit & fun" – offers a dozen kind of season salads, a variety of dishes with pitas and middle eastern bake goods that are baked in front of the costumers Kanaan currently functions in two locations on opposite sides of the same street corner, allowing us to offer different menu concepts as a restaurant, take-away counter and catering service, all while leaving no doubt that the food is the core of the initiative. Visitors are welcome to sit down, relax and enjoy the culinary experience. The Kanaan bakery offers a variety of distinctive deserts that combine Arabic traditional deserts with a German twist and German pastries with an Arabic touch. Our vision and long term goal is to cooperate with sweets manufactures in order to combine Middle eastern and European flavours. Just like our way of thinking: Together is always better. In January 2017 we plan to open a concept store, where customers can try the products used in Kanaan, e.g. Tahini, pomegranate sauce, olive oil or date honey. Additionally we will offer mixtures of spices that are freshly prepared in the concept store and match individual customer needs. For example, if a customer plans to grill chicken or roast beef, we create an individual blend of spices. In September 2017 we plan to offer our products in the German supermarkets. We plan to expand the hosting experience of our restaurant and pass along to you so you can take with you to your home table a variety of salads, consult with us on which virgin oil bottle you should take, maybe even ad a bottle of Araak or even a cake for dessert. We feel that can enhance your experience of you hosting in your own home. We have created a diversion of tastes and possibilities that combines every day ready to eat food along with fresh and dry products that allows you to feel like you are dinning out when you are in you are actually home. All of the products are the core of the food that you love to eat at our restaurant. The salads we serve, our juices and middle eastern cocktails, our signature tahini and off course our bake goods, our cakes and sweets.

Tips from the Net @ KANAAN

Really good food. Terrible and disgusting facilities. This is the perfect summary for this place. They serve awesome Middle East vegetarian food BUT the restaurant itself is a dustbowl: quite dirty, tables covered with pastic wrap and a weird stinky smell out of the wooden walls... Obviously, no credit card accepted, this is Berlin.... Average price per person: 10-12€ GooglePlace - April 2018

Kanaan doesn’t need yet another rave review but I have to give it one anyway. The handicraft of devoted artisans who share food and culture with love and pride and are personable and human with customers. Sensational food bursting with freshness and flavor, all of it very pretty to look at, and enough to take home and have as a whole meal the next day too. I would go all the time if it were closer.

They have some very interesting dishes that I haven't seen anywhere else in Berlin. Food is fresh and tasty, but a bit pricey (though they're not the only ones, I'm annoyed by restaurants that charge 7€ for a Hummus plate and 1€ for each extra pita bread). Staff is very friendly and welcoming. There's an outdoor area with a sandbox, which is great for kids when the weather is nice. GooglePlace - March 2018
