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.

We ate at Ankara first night that we stayed in Ghent. Very popular and busy restaurant, we were lucky to get a table. Quite noisy and bustling, but very good value for money. Food very tasty and plentiful. It was also served promptly and was hot, which is a must for me. No complaints, would recommend. If you want somewhere... More

This is quite a big and very popular restaurant which serves turkish food in a way everybody seems to like. It is easy to find out what you want to eat, the pictures tell you exactly how your food will look like. The portions are huge and tasty and a kind of party-plate for couple of people seemed to be...

Huge portions but nothing particularly special. Service was efficient, there was a good atmosphere and the meal was cheap.
