I ordered Anatolia mixed plate for to go and the restaurant is not much far from my work place. Well restaurant is pretty good, like the Turkish decor with some Turkish instruments on the wall. 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.

The food tastes great. there is a wide selection to choose from and everything we have had - been there twice - was exceptional. The staff is friendly and the prices are on the high end but not too bad given the quality and quantity.

We ordered two very tasty, but not too spicy, Turkish meals that were excellent. The walnut spread appetizer was outstanding. The fresh baklava was perhaps the best I've ever had (and not frozen inside as in so often the case elsewhere). The Turkish waiters were friendly, knowledgeable, spoke good English, and provided excellent service. Good quantity of food at reasonable... More

Arrived late and ordered a mezes plate to share and a mixed grill plate. Really exceptional food and courteous service. Having spent a recent holiday in Turkey and lived there many years ago, this restaurant lives up to an old axiom - There are 3 great cuisines in the world - Chinese French and Turkish - Anatolia's food justifies the...

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.
