On an early evening November visit the place was not full, as predicted in many reviews, but did become busier as the night progressed. Restaurant was clean and with a pleasant atmosphere, and the staff helpful and polite. The menu was not in English but the accompanying pictures helped to establish the various dishes, and seem to specialise in 'meats'.... More

Really good value and generous portions. Tuna and Mixed grill were both very tasty and loads on the plate.

Travelling with my partner and his mom for a weekend in Ghent, we had a Flemish meal one night then saw the rating for this Turkish restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. The service was excellent and the menu, while not translated to English, had pictures of each dish and was easy to follow. The calamari-borek... More

Just took my mom to restaurant Ankara because she never went there. We arrived early (just before 6pm) and it was nice and calm. We got served fast but very friendly. Around 7pm the place got crowded quickly so I can imagine things get slower then, consider yourself warned! My mom got a mixed grill which was super nice, with... More

Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We have been here a few times so far -- and will keep coming back. We had a 1/2 liter of wine, glass of kir, the chef's mezze plate and the mixed grill that we ordered for two people and could barely move afterwards. The lamb meat was so juicy, the spices were...

Its easy to order food since there are also pictures of the dishes on the card. Ordered starter,main dish and some drinks and right after that i... More

I'm baffled at the reviews here. I thought a Mezze platter might have something along the lines of falafel, baba ganoush,tabbouleh, flatbreads, some veg in oil/pickle/ or that sort of thing. Instead it was a plate of about ten lumps of stuff - a nice harrissa type one, a bland yogurt one, a dull hummus, and then odd things like... More

We had the Mezze du Chef..... totally bland.....and the grill special....forgettable. Nothing positive to say except that it is inexpensive. The Tarama is totally forgivable and the tzatziki has zero taste. The place is packed (why???), the service takes time long since there are so many people.
