No service charge.
Credit cards not accepted.
Anatolia is in the same location as the previous Little Turkey Restaurant but has all-new owners--Turkish native Yilmaz and his Taiwanese wife, Miss Yen--to go with the new name. Their chef hails from southwestern Turkey, which influences his home/country style entrees, such as five types of "Firin" au gratin dishes like the Firinda Karides (NT$280)--shrimp and vegetables covered with cheese and baked. Plenty of other choices include Turkish soups, seven "Salatar" salad dishes (NT$90-200), five boat-shaped "Pide" Turkish pizzas (NT$230-300), Turkish lavash bread, the very popular Sutlac rice pudding dessert (NT$90), and NT$90 Turkish Coffee and Ayran, a salty yogurt-based drink. Add NT$99 to any main course and you can enjoy the choice of soup or drink, plus a salad or dessert. Because this is a halal restaurant, no alcohol is served. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Ann Lee
