this is a busy restaurant with inside and outside dining.. the crowds testify to good value and good service. If you have to wait for a table, it will be worth it. The big sampler plate is marvelous for 3-5. Nice olive and pimento plate on the house. 1/2 carafe of house wine 8E. Highly recommended.

This place will most likely be one of the best experiences. Very nice staff & very good food and nice surroundings. The big plate is absolutely fantastic.

This is a very popular restaurant - we waited 20 minutes to get an outside table for two on a Friday evening. The staff are friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is very party-0like, with everyone talking across tables and with the people walking past in the street. Many of the clients are themselves Turkish, so it must be fairly... More

This restaurant was recommended by Belgian friends and we were not let down. It is a bustling, busy, fun restaurant, full of locals and the local Turkish community (always a good sign). The salads were super fresh, and meats good quality and perfectly prepared. The portion sizes were very generous. I don't usually choose to go to a restaurant with... More

If you are in the neighbourhood and you like Turkish/middle-east cuisine this is the best place in Gent for food, prices, kindness and efficiency of the staff. One example for all: last time I went with the family and I took a "raki" while dining and another after the coffee, then they offered me (and the others) another one for... More

What a superb evening we had at Ankara Restaurant on Easter Sunday. We didn't book a table, but they accommodated the two of us with ease towards the end of the evening - approx 9:30pm. Ankara is in a busy road with numerous restaurants close to the Patershol district. We ordered the Ankara Special for two and tucked into olives... More

This is definitely not any kebab house, but real restaurant. When visited it was full house but they arranged us a table without reservations. 2 adults with 2 youngsters eat diner with less than 70 EUR. All food was tasty but not spicy.

We sat outdoors, but indoors is lovely, too. We spent forty-seven euros for three. Three main courses, one salad, a large bottle of water, one glass of wine. Traditional offerings, ample plates.

Attentive waiter, large portions that were tasty but not too spicy. Good range of beers and spirits. Sociable environment great for slow friends dining.
