“Very good experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

We had the special plate of the chef, which is a mixture of meat, seafood, vegetables, sauces and specials... I would recommend this to anyone going on a first visit!
---
Reception: since we went on a saturday we made a reservation which imo is needed, and although we had to wait for 5 minutes until our table was ready, we were welcomed in a warm manner and were offered a (free) drink to start our evening... So the reception was perfect!
---
Service: the staff was constantly working very hard and fast, trying their best to give you a great experience...So the staff was perfect!
---
Food: the portions were huge, yet we did manage to finish the entire plate. If you are unable you also have the possibility to take the leftovers with you. The food was very tasty and there are bound to be things on the plate that you love and things that are more different, but that is just a matter of taste...Overall the food was very good!
---
Price: we each had two alcoholic beverages, each two to three non-alcoholic beverages, the plate of the chef and each a liquor to finish everything off...the bill however was under 45€!!! Good luck trying to find that somewhere else...
---
In the end I would say: "just try it and have a lovely evening out, because we had a very good experience"...My overall grade would be 4,25 out of five stars.

“the best restaurant in ghent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

We come in restaurant Ankara for more than fifteen years and we were never disappointed. It is not "haute cuisine" but for the price you pay here you can't eat better elsewhere. The staff is always very kind. The food very fresh and tasteful. Even on a weekday the restaurant is lively. A very good sign...

“Wonderful experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

Looked over all the top rated restaurants in Ghent and decided on Ankara. No regrets! Delicious lamp chops and sides. Very affordable. Nice location for comfortable streetside dining.

“All six of us really enjoyed our meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

We had no set plan for dinner and stumbled upon Ankara. The service was very accommodating (including for children), the food very fresh, tasty and well prepared, and the prices were also quite reasonable. We dined outside since we were having a spell of good weather, but the inside of the restaurant is really quite pretty. Anyway, I really wish all of our meals were this good and this inexpensive!
