    Being a long time Efendy customer I loved the menu and wine list. Food was excellent. It was noisy but I think that’s just Barangaroo outside dining.

    Delicious, fresh and exquisitely presented food, the texture and taste was just as good as how it looked. Impeccable service, I’ve never had such a welcoming experience, and in the city was the last place I was expecting to have the most accommodating service. Thank you for a brilliant night I cannot wait to go back!

    The food, drinks & service were excellent. I’m glad we were able to order off the al a carte menu so we could cater for all taste buds. The only think that let us down was that the haloumi wasn't on the menu. This was one of the reasons we chose to dine at Anason. Please bring back the haloumi! 🙏🏻

    Tasty Turkish cuisine. Food was well presented, as well as taste. Waiter was extremely helpful in seating us indoors (from outdoors) and also suggesting wines. Family dinner was great for the adults. Only thing missing was a simplified kids menu! Plus sitting outdoors at Barangaroo is beautiful, although not on windy days.

    The reservation process was messy. Asked for 7.30 told it would be 7.45 then at 7.15 got a message to say table was ready. When booking I opted for the feast with matching wines but when we got there they were not aware. Asked for a pre dinner champagne and food started arriving almost as soon as we got our drink then got our first matching wine at the same time. Service was patchy though friendly. Food was quite good but there was much too much of it. Took home a doggy bag. All Turkish wine match was very good. We’ve been to Anason a number of times and always enjoyed it. Next time will go a la carte

    Impressed with the presentation. Uniquely Turkish flavor of seats, tables and plates took us back to finest restaurants in Istanbul. The food was beyond our expectations and service was impeccable. In the end we bought the cookbook, Anatolia, with recipes we hope to create at home.

    The food was wonderful and plentiful. Lovely and unusual mixtures which had a four of us very happy. The service was top notch and so very helpful, informing us of plate sizes etc so we knew exactly what we were getting. Of course the location is lovely.

    Food was excellent. But expensive for what is basically street food. A hint for management and staff: if you take away an empty wine bottle, it might be a good idea to ask the customer if they would like another bottle rather than having them chase around for another person to take the order.

    Amazing food. However our evening was soured due to being briskly handed the bill with instructions to vacate exactly 2 hrs after we seated. No time limit was given when booking or when being seated. We still had dessert and drinks but had to finish up and leave! Very unprofessional

    Food was great though small portions so not really value for money. Restaurants need to stop rushing customers out after such a short sitting. Dining out is expensive in Sydney, and yet here, compared with other global cities that allow customers to enjoy their evening at a comfortable pace, restaurants like Anason force customers to wolf down our food in 2 hours? How is that an enjoyable experience?

    Imaginative and beautifully cooked food delivered quickly on sharing plates to the table. Portions were good and the variety offered was excellent. It was cold and windy that evening - but the ceiling heaters worked well and with blankets supplied we kept warm despite the weather.

    Anason is without a doubt my favourite restaurant in Sydney. Each time we dine at Anason the food is delicious and healthy and the service is friendly and helpful. Last night we started with our go to cocktail, the Kosem Sultan followed by a selection of gourmet shared entrees, the star for us was the slowly baked eggplant. For mains we ordered the baked whole snapper on a bed of beans and lamb backstrap on a bed of pureed eggplant. Both mouthwatering and perfectly cooked. Of course we went all the way with Anason's freshly baked baklava and chocolate pudding for dessert. Yum! Such delicious modern and traditional Turkish food. Every mouthful from start to finish is a culinary delight and with Barangaroo's ambiance it's always magical. Thank you Anason for providing such a special dining experience once again. See you next time!

    The waiters were so busy we had to remind them of our order for the drinks twice. I asked for NO ice but drink came with ice. We were told to order entrees and mains at the same time and were told not to worry; the food would not come out all at the same time; well, it did! No room on the table for all the meals and then toward the end of eating all the meals; one more main meal came out! A few meals had no taste at all and the brussels sprouts were almost raw. The prices were over the top for what was given. The noise level was so high we had to yell to hear each other (party of 5 only so not a big group at all!) the 2 younger waiters (1 from Argentina and the Pilipino lady) were very friendly but the older one was quite abrupt and borderline rude!
