Experience the best cuisine that Turkey has to offer at Anatoli. Be greeted warmly by attentive staff and seated in an intriguing Victorian warehouse, built in 1904.

Anatoli has been serving the best Turkish food in Cape Town since 1984 and this wealth of experience and success is well reflected in the offerings on the extensive and well-planned menu. Freshly baked flat breads accompany traditional meze, presented in equally traditional oversized trays. The knowledgeable waiters will enthusiastically take diners through all of the meze available. There is something to suit every palate at Anatoli due to the variety that characterises Turkish cuisine.

Experience a memorable culinary journey through Turkey care of Anatoli at Green Point.

This must be one of my favourites but unfortunately it has become very over priced. There is nothing to justify the prices they charge at this land mark restaurant.

This must be one of my favourites but unfortunately it has become very over priced. There is nothing to justify the prices they charge at this land mark restaurant. I guess if they are always busy they assume people are happy to pay these ridiculous prices so why would the owners worry about value for money. Pitty.

Wonderful ambience and captivating restaurant, I felt transported to Istanbul from first setting foot inside. Warmly welcomed and then introduced to the interactive way the establishment operates after being served with beautiful wine. The starters are brought to your table on an enormous tray where you'll select your wares, then if you've got room for mains you're transported to the... More

We missed the atmosphere and food of Turkey and decided to give Anatolia a try. Picked 6 mezzes and 4 dishes. Enjoyed some but really disliked some others. Perhaps our reviews are harsher than that of other customers as we compare with the scrumptious food we've had there!

We were just overwhelmed by the ambiance from the moment we entered this Aladin's cave of oppulance! The bearded genie who received us at the outsized double doors truely took us on a magic carpet ride from giant mezze platter to giant mezze platter. Try everything! Even if you have to visit again and again!

An excellent evening was had by all - the decor and ambiance makes for relaxed easy dining. Starters were delicious - typical meze plates with flat breads catering for all (lots for vegetarians). Mains selected were lamb shank, deboned ribs, smoked aubergine - all the dishes were very tasty. The meals were all very large portions, but so good that... More

Another meal out with colleagues, which was enjoyed by all. Lots of choice for veggies, though I wish they had more hot mezze really. I didn't go for a main meal as I like lots of things to choose from, but my colleagues all had main meals and didn't have any complaints. Generous portion sizes, and friendly staff. Quite dark...
