If you have never had Turkish food, this will pass as good food, but having been to outstanding Turkish resteraunts this wasn’t good in comparison. In fact I think a lot of it is frozen and reheated products, the Kunefe definitely so. The customer service was outstanding, the atmosphere quiet and cozy, however. I just think if you are a Foodie, you will be disappointed. I also didn’t see any Turkish customers, which is always a tell tale sign.

Great Turkish food! We lived in this region of Turkey for several years and their dishes are authentic, well prepared, and taste just like they would in Anatolia. We also love the fact that they have Turkish wine- too bad they were out of Turkish beer, but that is another reason to return!

I met with several friends; three of us were return customers. Two of us ordered appetizer plates for dinner; the others had lamb stew or roast lamb. The appetizers were excellent and the portions were reasonable. The service was polite but a bit slow.

Anatolia is very convenient to our home and a good place to meet friends for good food, good service, and good conversation. There were several fresh fish offerings as specials, including branzino. The whole grilled fish was cooked perfectly and tasted wonderful. It was a nice change from the usual middle eastern items I order. I left very satisfied.

Ours was an outstanding experience, Anatolia can compete with the best restaurants in Nashville and areas world renown for their food. It had to be the best Lamb ever. Everyone was pleased with the service, food, wine and the entire experience. Highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a great place for good healthy food. It is also very quiet. It is not a hip place but the food is awesome! It is a great place for vegetarians. It is also a good place for kids because the kebobs are simple and healthy. The service is awesome. AND my favorite feature if they have a $10 corkage fee - great place to eat good food and bring your own wine.

This restaurant never disappoints! Service is always stellar, clean environment very inviting. Tonight the gyro wasn't as fresh as it could be. Too many onions and too much lettuce left it to be less than flavorful. I should've stuck with my guns and got the shish kebabs like I normally do :-)

Have been there many times and reviewed before. In a nutshell, home-cooking Mediterranean style with several appetizing lamb and eggplant dishes and outstanding appetizers (e.g., Haidari yoghurt. Efficient and pleasant waiters/waitresses. Value is excellent for the quality and freshness of the food.
