The decor is authentic Turkish. After an unnecessary run around about a deposit of R200 per person for a Friday (weekend) booking, which left bitter taste for me personally (given I was making a booking from Australia but was not given all banking details to make an International transfer. Decided to pay the deposit till I arrived in Cape Town but the restaurant was closed for lunch (unbeknown to me), when I dropped in. Restaurant owner still not satisfied even though I physically fronted up to a closed restaurant this did not appease him, so I braved the traffic again for a second day to pay the deposit.

Mezze food really tasty - did not like the prepared plates sitting on the counter to pick out for service to our table. Hot Food sitting in Maine Marie which customers go over to see and make a selection. Food was certainly authentic and tasty.

Anatolia brings the Turkish experience to you. This quaint restaurant has charisma and character- very charming. The food is quite tasty- I would have loved more vegetarian options other than eggplant and potatoes, otherwise the food and dessert was good. The service was extremely slow -it got to the point of being really frustrating, from sitting down, it took us 15 minutes to place and order for our drinks. This made the experience less pleasant.

Delicious Mezza selection, we just kept asking the waiter to come back with more. My favourites were: Satsouka (aubergine and roasted tomatoes), Fava (bean paste), Topig (mashed potatoes, tahini), Dalmasi (vine leaves) Hummus (no trans needed), Izara (Halloumi).... we were invited by good friends who have been many times, it is a great recommendation. The atmosphere and our Greek/Turkish waiter all added to a very special evening.

I had a large-ish group to entertain at a recent conference, and Tayfun, the owner, was extremely accommodating and flexible in arranging this outing. The food was great and well-suited to the various preferences of our group, wide variety and everything was good!. We started with mezes and then each ordered a main dish or a kebab - plenty of food. There were two vegetarian mains to choose from, and mine was exceptional. Many in our group (including one South African guest who knows Cape Town well) praised the relaxed friendly atmosphere and excellent food quality in this restaurant! Affordable as well. Thank you, Anatoli.
