Carryout pizza great

Staying at a Hilton next door, just wanted a small pizza, actually just a piece of pizza, and didn't want to call out for a delivery pizza at $20.00 plus tax even from chains. Called Ansari's and they had a small 6inch pepperoni pizza for 6 bucks. Ten with all my add ons, but better than $20.00... read more

There are so many daily/weekly specials at this restaraunt. Greek lunch buffy at noon, all you can eat snow crab Thursday evenings, half price apps after 10:00 week nights and two belly dancing shows on Friday and Saturday evenings. Oh, and by the way the food is great and with a large selection of Mediterranean staples.

This restaurant features lamb. My wife and I ordered different entrees. Mine was good, hers was very bad (too fatty).

We stopped by Ansari's after visiting the outlet mall at Eagen. It really hit the spot. We mad a meal of their appetizers. We ordered, calamari, hummus, baba ganoush, greek potatoes, and falafel. Nothing disappointed. The place also has belly dancing and while we were there in the late afternoon, I can see this place rocking on a weekend night... More

The service was solid...the moment we walked in, we were met with a warm, smiling face that led us to our seat immediately. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu (my wife has allergies...he made sure to follow through on all of her concerns and made finding the right food easy). The food was great. There's another Mediterranean... More

We get the gyro meal deal from Ansari's monthly. The value with the coupon they put out on this is good along with taste of the entire meal. There is enough food for 8. The salad is good but the gyro meat is awesome. I'm a big eater and there is more than enough for me. Always leftovers and always... More

We enjoyed walking over from our hotel to grab a late evening dinner, and weren't disappointed. It was a fun atmosphere and the food was very flavorful. We will definitely go back.

Ansari's is a hidden gem in Eagan. Fabulous traditional Mediterranean food. The portions are very generous. I love their sampler plate that offers a small portion of my favorites: gyros, Greek salad, falafel, huumus, etc. Off the side of the restaurant is a nice bar area. If an event is happening in the bar area, it can be a bit... More

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.
