sorry i've had much better turkish cuisine. everything from the hummous to the lentil soup was very bland. this does not pay homage to genuine turkish cuisine and it was very overpriced.

Fantastic Hummus, babaganoush, labne, etc to start. And wonderful kebabs, kofte, donner for mains. Everything was delicious and service was fantastic. All reasonably priced in a nicely decorated spacious setting.

We have patrons of Anatolia since it opened at it's first location maybe 15 years ago! It is owned by two brothers from Turkey - and they keep the food authentic! I love their lentil soup! Often get several bowls to carry out at the end of the meal! Then on to the stuffed grape leaves - the best in... More

Family dinner and everyone enjoyed their meal. They present a really nice appetizer sampler - the large was plenty for the 6 of us. Our entrees included chicken kabobs (you can get plain or in a yogurt sauce), a delicious lamb-stuffed eggplant, fresh fish of the day, salads and vegetable stew. Baklava and ice cream for dessert really topped off... More

We went with another couple for dinner last Saturday. We started with appetizers of humus and fried liver cubes. Both were excellent. I had the doner with came with rice or bulgar. I chose the bulgar and it was flavorful. Another had the shrimp casserole which she loved. The shrimp were large and looked juicy. Another had the fried liver... More

We have frequented this restaurant at least four or five times. The food is ALWAYS outstanding. The atmosphere is warm and jovial without being chaotic. The Doner is incredible. The portion is very substantial. The calamari appetizer is delicious but know the portion is very small. Hummus is out of this world. The falafel is good but not exceptional. I... More

Their dessert is what has been on my mind! I had a lamb dish that was pretty good, my husband and grandma thought that it was a little too gamey, but I didn't mind. We will definitely return.

Nice place for a nice dinner...calamari appetizer was perfectly done! Menu is wide and deep --lots of lamb dishes, of course, along with some fish and chicken. Lamb and okra, my choice, was hearty with lamb and lots of okra...but I would have liked it with a bit more spice. Companion had the night's special...lamb shank. Very tasty, tender and... More

Late Monday night date so it was slow, but the ambiance was still good, the pug picture Windows and decor make for a pleasing and classy ethnic vibe. Service was prompt and polite, and the food was fantastic. Really good pita, and perfect level of spices. Very reasonably priced for the level of cuisine and service
