This restaurant is probably as authentic as it gets when it comes to Turkish food. Growing up in the Middle East, Anatolia's kebabs come quite close to the taste I grew up on. Definitely a MUST visit!!

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 March 2017

Reservations a must, but be sure to get to this Turkish "Delight", in Etobicoke. Don't be put off by strip mall location --- the service and food is exceptional. Select the mixed appetizer platter for a fine start to your meal. Enjoyed the Adana Kabob for a main course. When we requested a small portion of yogurt for a side,... More

I was super excited to visit this place because it promised to be authentic food with live entertainment. It was not what we expected. The actual restaurant is small, outdated, and not in a very good area. For the food price, you'd think the place was upscale, but it's not. The menu is fixed (First Friday of the Month they... More

We visited this Turkish gem twice in the last two months, once with a large group and once as a couple. Both times, the food and service did not disappoint: Anatolia's is an intimate venue where traditional Turkish cuisine is served with careful attention to presentation and taste. The portions are generous and the service is near perfect. Both times... More

Anatolia isn't near my home, but my wife and I had a craving so we made the trek through crazy Toronto traffic, and we weren't disappointed. The walnut spread is ALWAYS good. The lamb wasn't gamey. Service was fast and Yes... it came with smiles. Genuine ones... not corporate enforced smiles. That really counts in my book. Will come back... More

This restaurant gets a 5 stars from me for the food. My first time here, and my first handful of times partaking in Turkish cuisine, and it was delicious! We started with their traditional bread and homemade hummus. If I could bottle up this hummus and buy it I would. Perfect flavour. Perfect consistency. The bread was very good too,... More

We waited about 30 mins for a table. That was our fault because we didn't have reservations. That being said, the couple ahead of us had a reservation for 9 but were seated at 9:30. They waited as long as us for a table they reserved. Once we ordered the food,it took20 mins before we got our drinks. Another 20... More

I was in Toronto for business and was meeting with an old friend and his wife. As I'm always down to try new ethnic food we decided to explore this place and this was no exception for delicacy. Starting with the baba ganoush to the fresh salads and into the main course; it was all just filled with deliciousness. The... More

We go quite frequently, especially for family special events. Occasionally WE have gone as a large group of friends to the special "Istanbul Nights" which includes musical and dance entertainment. Anatolia also has good quality takeout which we have used for parties at home.

Baklava's, boreks and dips soon followed suit.Feeling constrained in her small kitchen and with a client base growing by the week, Ayse took the next big step and openedAnatolia Restaurant.Established in 1999, Anatolia Restaurant has grown in popularity to become one of "Toronto's Top Ten Restaurants" according to The Globe and Mail, as well as being regularly recommended by Toronto Life, featured on the Street Eats television show and CBC's Living Toronto to mention a few.
