Anatolia Turkish Grill

About

​Anatolia Turkish Grill is established under London Business Group that operates since 2001 as a business to introduce authentic and innovative Food & Beverage outlets. The group's network currently encompasses four of the regions’ most popular and recognized home grown brands in the Quick Service Restaurant, Casual Dining and Fine Dining categories, such as London Fish & Chips, Anatolia Turkish Grill, Sugar Sprinkles and Sultana. Anatolia Turkish Grill, a semi-fine dining concept, opened its first branch in Granada Mall, Riyadh in March 2010 with an objective of presenting authentic Turkish taste and by careful selection of menu items. Attention to Anatolia Turkish Grill has increased rapidly since its first day of opening. Tahlia Street branch followed as the second chain in Riyadh to offer the genuine Turkish food culture.

In Dubai, Anatolia Turkish Grill opened its first branch in 2011 at China Gardens in Ibn Battuta Mall, aiming at the best level of service, the best quality of food and the best offerings in Turkish cuisine; the second branch was opened in Mirdif City Center January 2013, with the third branch ‘Anatolia Simple’ at Yassat Gloria Hotel Apartments opening its doors in April 2015. 

Today, there are five Anatolia Turkish Grill restaurants; two are located in Riyadh and the other three located in Dubai reaching to a much diverse group of customers in the region. 

With the great deal of growing success, the brand "Anatolia Turkish Grill" revisited its original plan to make it a more proactive expansion plan to open new branches in Saudi Arabia and in Middle East in the near future.

Review

​We  just got done with an amazing movie at Novo cinemas at the Ibn Batuta Mall around 11:00pm and were famished, so my wife, sister and I decided to try this Turkish Restaurant called Anatolia Turkish Grill within the China Court itself! 


We were greeted by an all pleasant staff and were sat at the table of our choice rummaging through the menu like hungry hawks. By the time we could decide, we got a complimentary pita bread basket with a variety of dips and one of them was cheese of some sort. yum. and the rotis were steaming hot!

Excited we went on to order the following:
Hummous
Sucuklu Pide (Turkish pie with cheese and Turkish sausage)
Tavuk Doner durum (Chicken Doner) and,
Izgara doner durum (Lamb Doner)


All set we were catching up when our server arrived and informed us that the pie’s are no longer available and nor are the other meats for the durum or the bread wasn’t available. Disappointingly we kept asking for other options and over time she would come back with reasons like the specific meat was over or the bread wan't available. This whole back & forth took about 15 odd minutes. So eventually we asked her for a Lamb and and a chicken wrap which could be made and after about 20 mins we got it and frankly it wasn’t that great or it was probably the fact that we didn’t get what we wanted. 


On the bright side, the hummous was nice and the only thing the three of us devoured. 
We would definitely go back, although a bit hesitantly to try out the Turkish delights they have to offer.
