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.

My wife and I decided have recently celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary. My youngest son will be celebrating his 27th birthday in 3 days time. So, we decided to celebrate both events as a family at Anotoli Turkish Restaurant. My son and his wife enjoyed a visit to Istanbul last December.

My wife and I had visited Anatoli previously and thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. We were not disappointed this time. On the contrary, it was excellent. The mezze was superb and the main dishes were excellent. The evening was rounded off with delicious Turkish desserts.

Too often, diners fail to adventure out and try a different cuisine.

I am confident that diners will not be disappointed when they choose Anatoli Turkish Restaurant. It is a 5 Star dining experience!

Funtastic, interesting venue and eating experience. the staff were very patient and helpful which contributed to a great dining experience. We had a variety of starters in a meze/ tapas type of eating followed by different mains... and deserts. We ate far too much but always keen to try different flavours of Turkey

Warm, inviting, authentic experience. Soft, warm, fresh bread sliced at your table. The waiter brings a huge tray with probably 20 or more different starters to your table and describes them all. Lovely aromas and flavours from all the dishes. We only had starters (I think 6 or 7) so we didn't have space in our tummies left for main courses (starters are exceptionally filling) but the soft apricots and almonds and baklava desserts were excellent. The staff are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and we were greeted by the owner upon arrival and also when we left. Turkish delight on offer on your way out. Great for a romantic couples night out that won't break the bank. When we made the reservation we asked what the dress code is and were told "no jeans, no t-shirts, no short pants and no flip-flops". However, numerous guests had jeans on, not that it was in any way a problem for us, but one can feel slightly overdressed, so be warned. A truly authentic experience, we will be back to try the mains next time! Also excellent directions given telephonically and great telephone manner by the manager.
