“Definitely worth a visit if you're in the Wanganui area”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

My partner and I were in Wanganui for half a day and stumbled on this treasure. I've been to Turkey and this place does great turkish food. The Baklawa and Tiramasu are made in house and taste amazing. Thumbs up. On the return leg of our journey we made a point of visiting this restaurant again. If you're looking for a vegetarian option their wood fired turkish vegetarian pizza is great too. Service is top notch and friendly, if only they would open up a restaurant in Wellington.

“Has it all”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

My husband called through Wanganui on a Friday night looking for somewhere for a meal and while Angora was fully booked they made a place for him on a couch in their waiting area. He was so impressed with the food and service we went back the following night. Excellent menu, prompt and very good service and the food..... superb!! Great atmosphere too - we sat in a balcony area and while the boys cruising the streets in their cars were somewhat of a distraction it was all in all a great night out.

“Great turkish food... One of the better restaurants in Wanganui”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

Overall a great restaurant compared to others in Wanganui. The food is relatively authentic and decent decor.
Service... about average... what you would expect from any half decent restaurant.
Food... relatively authentic turkish food... particularly their hallumi, shish, and turkish delights.
Value... based on quality and portion size... it's pretty good value for money.
Atmosphere... I quite like the decor and layout of the restaurant. On one of the nights they had belly dancers which was different.

“A nice little restaurant, real Turkish food”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Angora was a pleasant find in a city with not too many decent eateries (sorry Wanganui!) This was real Turkish food, served up by a ver friendly couple from Istanbul. Huge servings (I had the lamb shanks and got two!), but my only tiny gripe would be that the meals could have done with some garlic. When my mother´s pizza came with chicken on it, after she´d asked for no chicken, it was replaced without any fuss or bother at all. My nephew (12) was delighted by his huge icecream sundae, and the homemade passionfruit creme brulee was to die for!

This is a tastefully decorated restaurant. Well done, Angora!
