Lovely decor and delicious food. I must admit to finding the process of choosing starters and main courses a little confusing. But it was worth the navigation. Staff friendly and helpful.

Thanks for your review. The reason why we have decided to sell only Turkish coffee is, a very little percentage of our clients ask for other type of coffee. Sorry for the inconvenience this have caused.

Anatoli has been serving the best Turkish food in Cape Town since 1984 and this wealth of experience and success is well reflected in the offerings on the extensive and well-planned menu. Freshly baked flat breads accompany traditional meze, presented in equally traditional oversized trays. The knowledgeable waiters will enthusiastically take diners through all of the meze available. There is something to suit every palate at Anatoli due to the variety that characterises Turkish cuisine. Experience a memorable culinary journey through Turkey care of Anatoli at Green Point.
