So sad after decent meze starters to be taken to the "mains display", and only offered mince in cabbage leaves / and two other vegetarian-looking options. Calling the smiling manager over he seemed completely non-plussed, laughing at us shrugging his shoulders. For an institution over 30 years old, to not have more than 5 portions of stock standard lamb dishes... More

The Anatoli experience is one never to be forgotten. The ambiance is wonderful and the food is absolutely spectacular. Every bite was a taste sensation. I am still thinking about it days later. One of the absolute best restaurants in Cape Town.

Awesome concept love the Turkish feeling such as the big tray and the food preparation. I definitely think that this is the most popular turkish eatery in the whole of CAPE TOWN.

Food, excellent. Service, good. Friendly, yes. Venue, adorable and beautiful. Went a small group but would certainly suggest a large group to enhance the vibe.

Having pre-booked a table and having specific requests as it was my husband's birthday the staff made every effort to make it a good visit. The restaurant is very noisy when busy so one feels like you are shouting at your dinner companions

Anatoli Turkish Restaurant has been trading for many years, with the current owner, a charming Turkish man, being a gracious and caring host. This restaurant has been reduced to only one dining hall ( previously two dining areas ), which has resulted in a very warm and cosy ambience. The walls are adorned with many different Turkish artefacts, which provides... More

Owner Tayfun's authentic Turkish place is a Cape Town favourite. The platter selection is the stuff of legend. Nice wine list, all at reasonable prices

Bad service, and no Turkish hospitality!!!! We were very disappointed in the service, the waiter did explain everything very well though. The Meze was good to start, and the bread was delicious.

Very different atmosphere. We were well explained about the menu. There are various turkish artifacts to accentuate the mood. The food was good and they are halal friendly. The food is very Mediterranean and not spicy at all which I presumed would be.Will definitely be back again.

I've been to Turkey and fell in love with their cuisine... Anatoli is the real deal! Great food, ambience and service. Our waiter Fabian was fantastic. Very reasonably priced, we'll be back for more. The bigger the group the more you get to explore as sharing is the way to go.

Description
Experience the best cuisine that Turkey has to offer at Anatoli. Be greeted warmly by attentive staff and seated in an intriguing Victorian warehouse, built in 1904.

Anatoli has been serving the best Turkish food in Cape Town since 1984 and this wealth of experience and success is well reflected in the offerings on the extensive and well-planned menu. Freshly baked flat breads accompany traditional meze, presented in equally traditional oversized trays. The knowledgeable waiters will enthusiastically take diners through all of the meze available. There is something to suit every palate at Anatoli due to the variety that characterises Turkish cuisine.

Experience a memorable culinary journey through Turkey care of Anatoli at Green Point.
