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.

“Very good choices”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This restaurant has a choices of about 20 standard mezzes which you choose from a board at your table. There were 9 or 10 vegan mezzes for me to try - I was very impressed by the choice and the quality of the dishes.

There were also 2 vegan main course hot dishes. I Had one but didn't like it - tway too sweet for my taste.

They also has a few vegan desserts to choose from.

Overall very good, just quite pricy once you order a couple of mezzes, bread, main and dessert.

There was also a couple of main dishes that were vegan and some desserts too.

Only issue is price - R40 for a mezze (size of a starter), and your supposed to order say 4 or 5 per couple, plus bread, mains and starters, so the total cost quickly spirals.

But overall, very happy.

“WAY overpriced”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The atmosphere is nice-ish. The food, however, is annoyingly overpriced. Went there with a group of 4, had some meze, some flatbreads, 3 mains, a few beers, no wine. Came in at over R250 per person. Won't visit again.

“Great service & food”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Really liked the service, very knowledgeable waiters, who took you through the food available, explained its contents, and how it was prepared, etc. And all of the food (meze, and main courses) was just delicious. We went with friends, and then recommended to others.

“Great food far away from Turkey”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Great to find such good Turkish food such a long way from its origin. We really loved this restaurant. They bring the starters and desserts on a big tray so it is really easy to choose. The main dish was ok and I think the starters are certainly the highlight over the mains. All in all, the service was fine, but could have been a bit more enthusiastic. Also, they advertise the Turkish beer EFES everywhere, but then did not have it, which we found strange. But all in all, a great place to dine and the setting is really tasteful and authentic.
