“Bliss for your taste buds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013 via mobile

Went with my wife for sushi, but it seems they have stopped serving anything but thai food. Was very let down and considered leaving, since i have not tried much thai. But ordered the green curry chicken and veg stir fry - both were Amazing! Wife was impressed too. Service was fine, atmosphere nice and quiet and calm. Our bill was around 75tl and worth it. Look forward to returning.

Quality of food is topnotch and very good service. Thumbs up! If only I could get hold of their fried rice recipe I'd feel better!

“A lot of fuss but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2012

Had two business lunches at Apinya, so I have tried several items of the Thai menu (never had sushi there). With the exception of the soups, the dishes were either mediocre or outright disappointing. I am a big fan of SE Asian cuisine and have had Thai food in many countries. At the prices Apinya charges, I expected more.

“Good food but it is way too expensive!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2012

When it comes to food quality, Apinya is OUTSTANDING! However, when it comes to price, to be honest, it is a rip off. If you have a big appetite, or you are extremely hungry, do NOT go to this restaurant. The portions are small and the prices are ridiculous comparing to Ankara prices! Even the most expensive restaurants in Ankara do not have such high prices. A 20-30 TL bottle of Rosé Wine costs 80-100 TL!!! I have to say that I was extremely pleased with the food, definitely the best tasting restaurant in Asian cuisine in Ankara! Despite the amazing food, the price is not very inviting. The service was extremely helpful, attentive, and kind; yet, every time I visited this restaurant there were only 1 to 4 other tables. A place with such good food would of easily been between the top 10 restaurants in Ankara. Judging by the amount of customers, it is easy to conclude that this restaurant's prices are way too expensive. Go around the corner of the street and you will see that all restaurants in the area are packed by night time! I only recommend it for special occasions.
