“Easy choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

If you are in the neighbourhood and you like Turkish/middle-east cuisine this is the best place in Gent for food, prices, kindness and efficiency of the staff.
One example for all: last time I went with the family and I took a "raki" while dining and another after the coffee, then they offered me (and the others) another one for free when we payed.

“Make sure you're hungry!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

What a superb evening we had at Ankara Restaurant on Easter Sunday. We didn't book a table, but they accommodated the two of us with ease towards the end of the evening - approx 9:30pm. Ankara is in a busy road with numerous restaurants close to the Patershol district.

We ordered the Ankara Special for two and tucked into olives and bread before the main course arrived. When the waiter, carrying an enormous oval platter on his shoulder started heading our way, my heart sank. The Ankara Special was enormous with every type of meat imaginable, jacket potatoes, salads dips etc. We really tried to do it justice, but had to give up three-quarters of the way through.

Ankara had a lovely atmosphere and I would highly recommend it to anyone visting Ghent.

“Excellent food with affordable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

This is definitely not any kebab house, but real restaurant. When visited it was full house but they arranged us a table without reservations. 2 adults with 2 youngsters eat diner with less than 70 EUR. All food was tasty but not spicy.

Gent is expensive, the beer is expensive. Every where is Beautiful, crowded & noisy .

This place is a haven of calm ~& good taste!! lunch was a dream

The Ankara is difficult to find but well worth it.

We sat indoors amongst locals who know a good thing when they eat it too.
The waiter is very professional

“This was delicious”

We sat outdoors, but indoors is lovely, too. We spent forty-seven euros for three. Three main courses, one salad, a large bottle of water, one glass of wine. Traditional offerings, ample plates.
