Appetizer platter is the way to go. For entree, the lamb chops were perfectly seasoned and cooked. Extremely tender. No knife necessary. Iskender was wonderfully seasoned. Katmer for dessert was divine. I’ll be back!

Authentic Turkish “kebap” food is prepared in this cheerful, open-kitchen, neighborhood restaurant.
We had “Iskender kebap”, a platter of shaved roasted lamb on a bed of pita soaked in tomato sauce, and yogurt on the side. This was served with a salad plate including an excellent hummus drizzled with fine olive oil, chopped “shepherd” salad, pickled red cabbage and thinly sliced onions; as well as a side plate of authentic Turkish bulgur pilav.
For dessert, I highly recommend “künefe” - a sweet concoction of shredded pastry layers sandwiching mozzarella cheese, topped with chopped pistachios and soaked in a sugar syrup (with a little extra on the side). This preparation is baked so the cheese melts and stretches as you take a forkful. Turkish coffee and brewed tea are also available. Service was courteous and the restaurant was clean and quiet. Excellent value for delicious food!

You would be hard pressed to find more authentic Turkish cuisine in New Orleans. I felt like I was back in Izmir.

More of a casual ambiance than expected from the website, however the staff were very attentive and we felt very welcomed. The appetizer platter and entrees were on par or better than other local favorites. The price was a great value as well. Definitely will return in the near future.

Some things really good, like falafel, some a bit bland like hummus. Shawarma a bit fatty, particularly the chicken which was surprising. Lighting a bit bright for evening. Service was really excellent, the attention shown greatly reminded me of time spent in Istanbul. Good for a quick bite, but hoped for a more romantic, special meal.

Magazine St. must have more Middle Eastern restaurants per capita than just about anywhere this side of the Atlantic Ocean, and that's great. Anatolia is a convenient location for us, has a special, Turkish take on Middle Eastern classics, and offers tremendous value. The sampler plate got us off to a good start. Next time, we will remember to bring our own wine. Management is very friendly, which is always appreciated.

I had the beautiful assorted appetizer plate which was more than I could eat for a meal. Everything on it was divine. My friends had the chicken shawarma and the lamb kabob. We all loved our dinners and will be back soon. Go! You won’t be sorry.
