Alaturka is a lovely homely restaurant with genuine smiles from servers. We ordered mixed meze to start, and every item was glorious: halloumi, sausage, chicken livers, prawns all fresh, hot and beautifully spiced. Our entrees were a mixed grill, including lamb, chicken and felafel. Everything was gloriously tender, and served beautifully with hummus and relish. We accompanied the meal with... More

A plate of meze for two (assortment of tasty snacks in the tapas tradition), plus drinks, is quite commonly available as a Groupon voucher for this restaurant and claims a value of £32.20 for £14.95. I'd heard good things about Alaturka and bought 2 vouchers, one as a gift. The assortment varied slightly on the two visits but was, on... More

My husband and I visited here as part of a birthday present from my son and had a meze plate for two. It was tasty. The Restaurant was comfortable and we were well looked after.

My daughter and I visited this restaurant on Saturday . We both enjoyed our meals very much. Although long waits in between courses the food was excellent . Not the biggest of portions either but the quality was there, I had the lamb stew which was lovely and tender. We will visit again.

I hadn't been to a Turkish restaurant before and wasn't quite sure what to expect. It was a quiet midweek evening with only a couple of other tables occupied and we were a party of five. The service was professional and friendly and the food was amazing. I loved both my starter and main course but would have been equally... More

I've eaten here numerous times since it opened 5 years ago and have never been disappointed. If you want a truely authentic Turkish culinary experience then your in for a treat. Set menus are reasonably priced, staff are helpful and friendly and food is amazing. Try the Sutlak for dessert. You'll never be able to eat British rice pudding again.

We visited Alaturka for the first time and found a fantastic little restaurant we didn't know existed! We had the mezze starters, really tasty and different, and then a piping hot chicken casserole in the Turkish tradition. The staff were attentive and friendly, really good. We will be back!
