We go quite frequently, especially for family special events. Occasionally WE have gone as a large group of friends to the special "Istanbul Nights" which includes musical and dance entertainment. Anatolia also has good quality takeout which we have used for parties at home.

Just wanted to say thanks to the folks at Anatolia. Went there with some very good friends from out of town. They thought it was the best Turkish food that they have had outside of Turkey. They liked it so much that they said that thier next house will be in the neighborhood....LOL🙄 P.S. - Outstanding service by the way!

I think anatolia is one of the best restaurants I visited in Toronto, the restaurant itself is small but clean and tidy, both the Manger ( MIKE) and the servers are very welcoming. On every Friday of each month the restaurant has a belly dancing show. The food is great starting with their delicious bread ending with their dessert.

Anatolia deserves much of the praise from other reviewers, both amateur and professional simply because the kitchen knows how to cook and the front of the house easily manages your hospitality and cares for your enjoyment of the dining experience. I was in Turkey a few years ago and found that the country was alot like Italy; in that they... More

Felt like I have visited turkey. About the food, my mixed plate was a grilled chicken shish kebab, flame broiled Izgara kofte and lahmacun with... More

We arrived at 8.00 on a Friday night [with a reservation] and the place was busy without being packed. It is bright with reasonable space between tables. Service was friendly, attentive and skilled. There is a large and varied menu and wine list. Due to the hour we only had a main course and dessert. The portions were good and... More

My boyfriend and I arrived at the restaurant at 8:45 pm. We were promptly seated and immediately received the men. After 5 minutes of waiting we were served a glass of water. After 15 minutes the waitress who was an older lady walked past and asked if we were ready to order, and we replied yes. Five minutes past and... More

We are sorry for the unfortunate event. If it is a Friday or a weekend night and if we accept people without reservations, we might have delays in the service and this weekend our computer system was down so for us it was a double delay on our service. We really care our guests individually and try to provide a... More

Even after 8 pm, 8 of the 15 tables were full. Good and prompt service, except a usual 15-minute wait for pastry. The Beyti lamb was delicious. The Ali Nazik was blander (chicken) drowning in butter, but it wasn't bad. The best were the Lahmacun pitas with lemony salad on top. I was half-half (considering the cost) about the Meze... More

Small family restaurant in a strip mall in Etobicoke. Limited parking in front and bathrooms in basement. Good food at medium price range. Excellent lentil soup.

Baklava's, boreks and dips soon followed suit.Feeling constrained in her small kitchen and with a client base growing by the week, Ayse took the next big step and openedAnatolia Restaurant.Established in 1999, Anatolia Restaurant has grown in popularity to become one of "Toronto's Top Ten Restaurants" according to The Globe and Mail, as well as being regularly recommended by Toronto Life, featured on the Street Eats television show and CBC's Living Toronto to mention a few.
