About Anatoli Turkish Restaurant

On entering Anatoli Turkish Restaurant in Green Point, one is enveloped with a sense of warmth and a feeling of being in Turkey. Owned and managed by Tayfun Aras, Anatoli is housed in a Victorian warehouse which was built in 1904 and has been serving up Cape Town’s best Turkish food since 1984.

Almost too hot to touch, freshly baked flat breads are carried to the tables to accompany the meze, presented on oversized trays. As is the tradition, waiters will explain the mezes available, numbering over 20 in total. Due to the infinite variety of fish, meat, fruits and vegetables produced in Turkey and the numerous cultures that took roots in ancient Anatolia, contemporary Turkish food is amazingly varied. At Anatoli Turkish Restaurant one can feel that the main dishes available reflect this clearly.

Most people with even a mildly adventurous palate have heard of or tried baklava or kadayif. These two flaky, pastry types of desserts dominate Anatoli’s dessert tray, although there are an infinite variety of others. Come and enjoy this amazing cuisine and experience a slice of Turkey. Anatoli is also available for hiring, two of its large rooms together or separate.

Anatoli Express has opened it`s doors on 15th of May 2012 and is the baby sister of Anatoli Restaurant,operating from 07:00 till 16:00. The food is simple, variety is big and like Anatoli the theme is truly Turkish. You can find traditional breakfast pastries like simit,poðaça and börek. Turkish teas and coffee are served as well as proper Barrista coffee all day long. Lunch is lamb or chicken kebabs, meatballs, falafel and a selection of freshly prepared mezes.
