Charming

It's the first time that I've ever been to the Agacan, despite walking past several times. I didn't realise it was actually a restaurant but thought that it was limited to just take away. I was pleasantly surprised to venture through the second door into a very cosy, intimate little restaurant... read more

We have been going to the AGACAN for over 30 years and the only thing that has changed is the price! Same great quality and flavours of a tried and tested menu. Even though the dining area is cramped, dining in is an unique experience which everyone whom we've taken there enjoy the atmosphere and the artworks on tables, chairs... More

Been meaning for years to try Agacan - and I mean years! Heard from lots of folk how good it is. Really really enjoyed it, starter and main both excellent. Bit expensive but definitely worth it. By far the smallest restaurant I have ever been in so you'll need to book a table.

I booked this before I remembered the food and price from a few years back and have since experienced this type of food from a spell in the Middle East. It's very atmospheric with the Turkish music in the background and as it is small it’s very cosy. But….. service was very slow. 45 minutes to cook a kebab? They... More

I had a takeaway from the place yesterday, and I thought it was very good food. I went for the coban salad and the iskender. The lady who took my order on the phone was very nice, and even recommended me something.

I’ve heard a lot about Agacan Dundee. It has been the very first time I went there. The food was good, but not great. And ridiculously expensive. I had the Agacan especial, very simple dish. It was made of: one salad with peppers and onions; a second salad of just lettuce; boil rice and some piece of chicken in the... More

The Mrs and I went to the Agacan tonight. Service and food as usual superb. I'm giving it 4 because they do not take cards, only cash or cheque, and who uses cheques these days? Always a bit suspicious of small businesses that are cash only when it's so easy to set up for card payments.

The Agacan started life a van serving kebabs to the people of Dundee after a night out back in the late 70's early 80's, moved on to the intimate restaurant they niw occupy. The menu has changed very little and all food is still cooked in the small kitchen seen from the restaurant. Beautiful artwork adorning the walls , placemats... More
