I went here for lunch with a friend after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. I was actually expecting to be dissapointed ((after such good reviews, you can only be dissapointed oif the slightest thing is wrong, right?) but boy, how wrong i was! There is not a single thing about the food, the setting or the staff i can give... More

We were travelling as a family of six and we had called the restaurant a few hours before dinner to make a reservation (places seem to fill up rapidly in Gent and some restaurants close over the holidays so calling to book is recommended). The staff spoke a good level of English. The food was great and they were very... More

There are plenty of cheap Turkish restaurants in the neighbourhood of Oudburg and Sleepstraat in Ghent. This one is the closest to the city center and the counts castle. It's my favorite. If you like spicy go for the Adana kebab, but there are plenty of other choices including vegetarian. Excellent service and in most of the cases they give... More

Back for the first of this years visits. Started with the lentil soup. Then asked if we could share a main of lamb chops, not a problem. As usual everything is served piping hot,the waiting staff are excellent. The food is delicious. Looking forward to our return visit on Sunday evening.

After reading all the reviews on tripadvisor and Yelp, I decided to pay them a visit. Tired of the bland food in Gent, Ankara surprised me with tasty food. Amazing service by the waiter and the owner. Friendly but not in your face friendly. If you are in Gent, Ankara is a must!!!

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
