Our family dined at this restaurant on Friday night 17th April. We ordered 5 Meze from the tray and these were shared by all of us. Every little dish was lovely and spicy, we gulped these down in no time. Then we were asked to choose the main dish from the dispaly. I had dolma, that is rice and meat... More

We are visiting Cape Town for Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon. One of the evenings, we booked at Anatoli Turkish Restaurant. We were very cordially received by the owner Typhoon himself. We were helped with the menus. Our orders were promptly taken and they were correct. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our party included 11 weeks old baby... More

This place has really good authentic Turkish food and the restaurant is a lovely place to sit. The decorations are elaborate and beautiful and once you've eaten a whole lamb shank it's also a nice comfortable place to lie around on some pillows

The key word describing this restaurant is consistency. I have been eating here since the 1990s. The basic formula is still the same and the traditional dishes are still there. The mezze are my favourite and I could just feast on those. The leeks remain my best followed closely by the aubergines. Then again the home made tzatziki, hummus and... More

This restaurant is a lot of fun. We were there with a group of 8. Mezze are brought on a huge platter for the table to choose. The quality of the food was very good. Delicate flavors, interesting combinations well beyond the usual hummus and dolmades. Main courses are chosen by going up to a steam table. While the quality... More
