Anatolia has been around for quite some time now and has its share of regular customers, but the location of this small Turkish eatery (tucked in a corner of Orchard Far East Plaza) can be somewhat difficult to get the attention of curious customers.
What can you expect from a Turkish restaurant? Well, kebabs of course! Most of the dishes here are meat-based, which is certainly enticing for carnivores like me.
Beef Portion (Doner): 4/5
For $11, this is what you get, and I'd think that's pretty reasonable. I did want to try Anatolia's butter rice though, but they were too rigid on making any changes and insisted that I took the bread. I didn't think my pants would have space for an additional plate of rice, and so I passed on that. Next time perhaps.
The beef slices were really tasty, though some may find it a tad dry. I think part of this is due to it being straight from the grill, where little oil is being used. The meat was also very fresh, and the portion just about right.
Here's the bread, a pleasant complement to the beef.
Chicken Sandwich Set: 3.75/5
Daphne had this, which not only had chicken kebab slices in it but also onions, tomatoes, chilli, and even some fries. An extra plate of fries was served along with it as well. Comes with a drink. I still think mine is more filling though!
Fair. They shouldn't be too rigid about changing bread to rice right! And like so many eateries in Singapore, I'm sad to say that even a Turkish restaurant like Anatolia has Chinese nationals as their waiters. A Chinese revolution indeed.
$11.00 for the "beef portion"

2. You could try out their Turkish ice-cream, though I was observing the man serving the ice-cream and I think he was having too much fun flirting with his female customer, continuously pretending to put the cone in her hands and then taking it off before she could grasp it. At one point I was asking Daphne if this is some Turkish culture that we have no idea about, but I doubt it is haha.
