Indulge in all the Turkish Delights across the menu

For those familiar with the Balmain restaurant Efendy, you will not be surprised that this Turkish Restaurant is offering sensational food without a kebab in sight.

Anason Barangaroo Turkish Restuarant Sydney
Not to be missed Atom - a tasty mix of marash chillies and strained yoghurt

The first restaurant to open on the waterfront of Barangaroo, this chic yet laid back patio vibe offers the perfect location for a long lunch in the sunshine.

The menu is a la carte, but designed for sharing or the Bosphorus Feast offers great value at $65 a head and you won't be left hungry.

We went with the feast, and while everything was delicious, there were a few stand-outs that deserve a detailed mention.

The cured salmon pastrima is a dish that takes 36 hours to prepare. The fresh salmon is cured on site, and the result is gentle flavours on a fish that virtually melts in your mouth.

The other stand out for me was the lamb shoulder with feekah, hung yoghurt and a jus. The meat was so tender and fell off the bone, yet there was a slight serve of crackling. All plates were devoured and not a shred of this dish was left.

The Turkish delight is well worth a mention too, and those with a fussy palate when it comes to this delicacy will be delighted.

The wine list includes a number of wines from Turkey, and there's a big offering in beers too. I stuck with the Watermelon Mint Cooler, as the cocktail just seemed perfect for our sunny afternoon festivities.

Bookings are advisable as the restaurant is understandably busy.

Disclaimer: I went with some writers and we were afforded some additional hospitality, however I did pay for my meal and drinks. I was not required to write this review, and the opinions are my own. I will most definitely be returning with friends.
