The Minnesota weather was up to nasty tricks with ice and cold. We appreciated being able to walk to this restaurant from our hotel. The menu gave us choices we don't usually see, so it was fun to try something new. It was a surprise when the belly dancer appeared - we enjoyed her show.

I've ordered both for delivery and pickup from this location, and the product quality was solid both times. I wouldn't hesitate to take either approach in the future, or to eat in if circumstances warranted.

My brothers and I stopped in here for dinner on a whim knowing nothing about the place. What a great surprise in store for us. From the appetizers to the entrees our food was fantastic and our server was genuine and engaged. He ensured that we had a superb dining experience. My brothers had gyro dinners that were heaping plates... More

Tarik our server was quick and informative. the Gyros were exquisite, moist. Must try the saganaki, flaming Ansari cheese dish. Unique and delicious. Even had a belly dancer to entertain us! Offered the military to a discount as well.

The restaurant was VERY busy the night I was there. The food was good but the service was a little slow....Again, it was busy so I assumed that was the reason. The staff was very friendly, though.

This meal was fantastic. Three of us split the medium sampler and it was just enough food, all of it very unique and delicious. The pita is so fresh, the hummus was excellent. We also ordered wine and the glasses were generous pours of a delightful Greek wine. It was only $40 for the three of us to eat, including... More

Our family has visited Ansari's many times over the years and have always been impressed with the quality of the food and the wonderful service we received there. I would strongly recommend the saganaki as an appetizer, and their lamb dishes are all superb

Stopped here craving some good Mediterranean food and that's exactly what we got. The food was better then what we could imagine and the service was great to match it. I'd definitely stop here again in a future visit.

We used to go to the Mediterranean Cruise while our daughter attended the Art Institute in Minneapolis and loved it from the start. Our first visit to the era since then and we are so glad we could reconnect. Love the food. Love the family that all work there. Haven't found an equal in Texas yet.

Ate at Ansari's twice while in Eagan on business - love love LOVE their avocado hummus as an appetizer, served with pita, cukes, and tomatoes and olives; and had their feta pasta which was a nice blend of angel hair and feta cheese with a light aoli. Happy hour 4-6 pm serves cold beer, discounted drinks and apps, and is... More
