Had a group of six and went to Anatolian Kitchen for dinner. Started with an appetizer plate which had a little of everything. The hummus was great and other items were tasty. We all ordered different items and everyone seemed to enjoy them. I had the Manti which were little raviolis stuffed with meat in a yogurt and garlic sauce...really... More

We had dinner at Anatolian kitchen several times. The food was always excellent, nice wine selection, great service and the desserts (especially Baklava and Kazandibi) are adorable. My favourite restaurant in Palo Alto!

came for dinner on a mild January evening. They have gas heaters outside, on the curb, making for a really nice outdoors dining experience... almost made us feel like we're in Turkey! Food is solid & authentic. We will certainly be back. Highly recommended.

This place is delicious, hands up, hands down. It's my favorite restaurant on the Cal Ave corridor. Been there for lunch, been there for dinner, won't ever get enough. Great service, nice ambiance, pretty efficient service for a sit down restaurant. Everything I've ever had here is great. Their manti is delicious and they know how to cook lamb inside... More

I have been there for dinner inside, and really like the food. I went there for lunch, had a table outside. Food was very good, pita bread excellent, and the servicxe was rapid without being too pushy. Great place

I've eaten at the Anatolian Kitchen twice recently. Both times the food was quite good - the plates come loaded with food including fresh vegetables (broccoli, zucchini, carrots) and rice and your entree. I had salmon one evening and chicken kabobs another, and both were well prepared. My son had a lamb dish/stew that was so flavorful that I was... More

Nice, above average turkish food. The apps were good and the specials were good too (whole fish, lamb), but the regular chicken kabobs looked good too. Very nice service too. Nice to be able to sit out on a quiet side street. They mixed up our bill twice and kept giving us a lower one....okay!

With Turkish cuisine offering a nice change of pace in terms of flavors and textures, the outdoor seating options at Anatolian Kitchen are an additional plus. The sidewalk is just off the main drag so it's a pleasant side street with a nice big shade tree providing just the right amount of light and shade. I had the Veggie Manti... More

I never had Turkish cuisine before but it essentially was what you might find in any middle eastern restaurant but with a specialized flare. The appetizer sampler was fantastic with hummus, doma, babaghanoush, falafalel, cucumber salad, olives. I had the Mousaka which was delicious too. For dessert you must try the Kanafeh, yum! Prices were very reasonable and service was... More

We stopped in after shopping at the farmers' market on Sunday morning. We had the appetizer sampler and everything was wonderful. I followed up with the lamb wrap and it was really wonderfully done. Juicy, well seasoned meat with great fresh greens. We will be back again. The only downside is that it is such a small place and it... More
