As a big fan of Meze style was impressed!

Very large selection of Meze dishes . What seems at first to be small amounts of food, the meze platters combine to provide an excellent quantity of delicious food.

The venue is superbly finished with stylish Turkish decor. Traditional foods served on traditional large serving boards - impressive to the eye. Good quality Middle Eastern Foods - catering for both the Vegetarian and Meat-eaters. Lamb is soft and succulent. Lovely place for an intimate dinner or for a group of friends.

Anatoli is a Capetonian landmark as it has been around for 30 years - so naturally they must be doing something right! I had not been there in years and decided to revisit and see if it was as good as I remembered......and it was. The atmosphere is warm and inviting - you feel transported to a faraway place just...

We visited Anatoli's as a group of 7 for a farewell. Awesome place, good food. Loved the mezze and the lamb shank was superb. Sam was a great waiter and explained all the dishes very well!

Anatoli's gives you authentic Turkish cuisine in a relaxed environment. Selecting your mezze food from a tray and your main from the kitchen instead of a menu is a great touch and allows you to eat far too much! Everything looks good and the mezze starters lived up to expectations. We all agreed that our mains were tasty but not... More

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.

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
