Expansive choice and great Meze.

A lovely little restaurant with great service. The food is tasty and there is lots of choice. It was our first visit and the staff offered to describe all the dishes to us which was lovely but we went for the shared platter to start as we'd already decided!

We have eaten in this restaurant many times and always had great service and great tasting food. We had not been there for a while, perhaps a year, so thought it was time to visit again as we have always enjoyed the great tasting food and excellent service. We visited on a Wednesday evening, the service was excellent, though the... More

Was here on my own, so missed out on the opportunity to share dishes with others, which is one of the treats of coming to a place serving mezze. Thought the service was great; really warm, friendly and courteous. The food was good. I've had a better version of both the starter and main in other restaurants, but that's comparing... More

Whenever I have friends to entertain I take them here, the decor is a little kitsch but pretty and used for accenting. Tables are set out in the English way- it makes me miss the cosy feel I associate with Mediterranean dining. But the food (which is the point) is flawless. The staff patiently describe anything you are not sure... More

Tables are well spaced out so you are not squeezed in, a pet hate of mine is being on top of others when eating. Service was good they checked the time we needed to leave for the theatre. Food was piping hot and very tasty.

Our first visit here and the staff were very helpful, talking us through the food & wine menus. We had the mezze to start to try lots of starters. All the food was very flavoursome and filling. Not even room to try the Baklava. The restaurant was busy but tables were nicely spaced so I could actually hear our conversation... More

We bought an offer to use here and the food was interesting and tasty. The dishes seemed authentic and were different to our usual fare. We will definitely return!

I have been to alaturka a few times and haven't been let down. I had a starter and main, both were lovely. The Turkish wine was great as well. What really makes the place is the service. Very friendly and warm.
