When we arrived at alaturka our waiter greeted us at the front door, and took some group pictures, what service!!? We ordered from the party menu, which we found to be excellent value! The whole evening ran smoothly,... More

Visited Alaturka for the first time last night with friends. So impressed by the warmth and attention extended by the staff and by the quality of the food which was prepared and delivered promptly and tasted wonderful. The restaurant is super-clean and has a lovely atmosphere. We will return!

Saw this restaurant as part of the tastecard scheme and were delighted that we stopped off here for an evening meal. The restaurant offer a wide range of options for various dietary requirements (vegetarian, meat, fish, gluten free), and everything from the cutlery to the glasses in which our drinks were served were so spotlessly clean that they gleamed.

I have visited this restaurant on several occasions, and each time they have exceeded my expectations. The service waiters/waitresses are very attentive and the food is always of a high standard. Its very hard to choose from the menu as there is plenty of choice but we normally get the mezza platter which is to die for. The Belly dancer... More

We visited the restaurant on July 26th to see the belly dancing. I was impressed initially as the restaurant had called to see whether we would like to watch the dancing so that they could seat us this area. When we arrived we ordered drinks and in amongst this was 2 gin and tonics, when it arrived the lady said... More

I chose this through reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. The service was charming and helpful, although we did have to ask where our main course was after a long time - several big parties to cope with. The food was very nice although not exceptional and the bill more or less what we were expecting Central London... More

We’re really glad you enjoyed your visit to Alaturka. We do have several vegan dishes on our menu and we have a printed vegan menu which is available on request. With regards to air conditioning, we are now looking in to installing a permanent system. It only gets very hot in the restaurant for a short time in the summer... More
