Good Turkish Halal food

Everything we tried (check pictures) was pretty good. Our server was nice and attentive to every need. It was a bit expensive but that's what you pay when you're at a Mediterranean halal restaurant. Would I go there again? Sure.

Extensive menu, flavorful options. Service is always courteous and food is reasonably priced. Great little outdoor patio space when the weather cooperates.

This place was pretty Turkish. Very extensive menu, and decently priced compared to other restaurants that serve halal food. The server was very attentive to our needs. We ordered plenty of appetizers. They were all good, but I recommend the cheese rolls. Salad was fresh and tasty. The kabab was juicy. The eskandar was lean and good. The stuffed cabbage... More

It may not be Istanbul but that's fine. You feel perfectly comfortable even if you don't know much about Turkish cuisine. The food is relatively simple but flavorful with large selections of lamb and chicken dishes, warm pita, friendly service in a relaxing understated atmosphere.

Always great food and great service at reasonable prices. No parking adjacent but they do have valet and public lots are a short walk. Well worth making the trip.

Our food was tasty but the portions are surprisingly small. My teenage boy ordered the lamb chops (most expensive item on the menu @ $28) and got 3 small thin chops, a little cabbage salad (delicious) and a number of French fries you could count on your fingers. Needless to say, he needed something to eat when we got home.... More

The restaurant is located in a mini-hub of restaurants and other night out options. The design and atmosphere if very nice, and it can easily fit large parties as well. The food quality is ok, but not over-board.

I'm a vegetarian & I usually stick to the same favorite..falafel meal with shepherds salad. The appetizers are great..go with the sample platter you get to try a variety of yummy items. My husband likes the lamb shis kabob. Great atmosphere. Service is slow but Very polite. Only disappointing thing is the dressing has seemed to have changed on my... More

We have always enjoyed the Anatolia Cafe for its unique flavor and Turkish atmosphere. Our lunch time visit, however, proved a bit disapointing. How is it a Turkish restaurant when it does not have doner kebab? Although the upper level staff seems to be Turkish it would be nice if the greeter and servers were also. They always seem to...

Anatolia Cafe' represents the best Turkish food I have eaten across the US. I am from Turkey, and I would highly recommend it.
