Found this place through trip advisor loved everything I had, my friend also loved her food. It is priced really well and I recommend the Turkish sausage for starter. The Turkish rice is also really good.

Thanks for reviewing Alaturka. We love having large parties in the restaurant when the Belly Dancer is here because they are often the first to get up and dance, and it makes for a great atmosphere. We’re glad you enjoyed your experience and hope you visit us again soon. More
