Gyro Meat is Great...and so are the greek potatoes.

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... read 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.

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
