“Top class food and service”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We couldn't decide on what to have (only because we were spoiled for choice!) so went along with the staff recommendation of Set Meal One.

This had a selection of Meze starters (we loved the Barbunya Pilaki) and the waiter brought us more flat bread without any prompting. A highly tasty selection and we were drooling due to the aromas from the Barbeque long before our Lamb and Chicken Mixed BBQ main course arrived.

It tasted every bit as good as it smelt and we were left completely satisfied by a big blow out of delicious mixed meats. The Chicken Shish was to die for but it was all excellent.

Staff were unobtrusive, yet totally professional and very friendly. I can't speak highly enough of the restaurant and look forward to eating here again.

“OK”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Having been to Turkey and visited Turkish restaurants, we thought it was over-rated. It was average, the food we ate was OK but certainly wouldn't rave about it and thought it was priced a couple of pounds above what we paid before for similar standard of food. There are much nicer restaurants in St Anne's. I suppose as it seems to be the only Turkish restaurant in this area, there is not much for people to compare it with. Have got to say I have had the same sort of food from my local takeaway for half the price. I wouldn't make the effort to return. The place was clean and the staff attentive, perhaps a little too attentive on a quiet Sunday lunchtime. The waiter stood for most of our meal at the edge of the table!

“Just Go ...”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

An absolute gem. Wish someone had told us about this place earlier! Excellent Turkish food - for those not yet familiar with a Turkish menu, I can recommend the set BBQ meal - Absolutely delicious. They have a 'Specials' board from which my husband chose the Lamb Shank - best he had ever tasted. We have visited twice as a group of four, and have also recommended it to friends who have since been, and can't wait to go back! Staff are very attentive, helpful and best of all - friendly. This place has a superb overall atmosphere which you don't find in many restaurants. It won't be long before we're back.

“Turkish Food”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

The Anatolia serves really authentic food and the staff are fabulous. Do beware of the size of the portions as they tend to be large - especially the lamb! Really friendly restaurant manager - give it a go!

“Couldn't get any better”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

4 of us went for my wife's birthday last night. Service was great, food was unbelievable. As an after thought (my bad) I mentioned when paying it was my wife's birthday. No problem Sir. You should have let us know. Within a couple of minutes a beautiful desert with candle was brought out, complete with singing. Great night. Thank you.
