Ankara is definitely not the most cosy, classy or stylish restaurant. On a crowdy evening (and most evenings are crowdy!) it is full and loud. So why 4 stars then? Because the food tastes fantastic, the portions are big enough and the staff is extremely friendly! Ankara offers a wide (but classic) variety of meditarranean dishes that are well prepared... More

Great food and extremely friendly service at an amazing price. We have been there on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. Tip: make a reservation to be sure – take the Plateau Du Chef and thank me later.

I was very happy with my dining experience at this terrific Turkish restaurant. The location is quite nice on a quiet street in the Patershol neighborhood. The menu offers many Turkish and Middle Eastern favorites. The food is very tasty, the service is excellent and the ambiance is lovely. The prices are not at all bad for the quality you... More

The Ankara restaurant was worth the 10 minute stroll from Ghent city centre. Food was tasty and good value. I appreciated the free olives and bread appetiser.

This is wonderfully great value to get the platter. A greedy friend of mine and I demolished one between us, then waddled away in shame at what we'd done. The meat on the plate was nice but there are a few too many fillers too: several different types of potato, all the salad in the world, etc.. The decor of... More

The last time we visited this restaurant in 2012 we really enjoyed our meal and this visit was even better. We had the chef's platter which was enormous and we struggled to finish it. The food was very well cooked and presented. The staff were friendly and the service was quick. We would definitely go here again. Booking recommended as... More

Very nice place and excellent service. Best Turkish place in Ghent, but a little crowded. I loved the Tuna steak there very much

Best thing about our lunch here was the salad. The borek I ordered was tough and tasteless, couldn't taste anything inside the pastry. The chicken stir fry was over seasoned and far too salty, Drinks were ok, so was the service. Very surprised at the high TA rating.

With all the hype, we were more than willing to wait for a table. This is a crazy busy place and while the staff seems to be running around like mad, the waiting for food was sorta ridiculous. And when it arrived, it wasn't very good. Bland, greasy, just not very tasty. Wish it had been better but wouldn't recommend.
