My friend and I ate here early one evening before going to the theatre. We had the set two course menu and was very impressed by the quality of the food and service. You get discount for cash.

It's a long time since we've eaten at a Turkish restaurant, where we live they are thin on the ground. So, to find one in Ipswich, where we visit regularly (football) was great. And the Alaturka did not disappoint. From very friendly service (and the first time I've discussed a football match with a waitress who was there!) to excellent... More

I don't know how many times I went there even though I live 35 miles away I still go there whenever possible. There isn't anything to fault really, the food, the service, the atmosphere and the management team everything is just perfect. I highly recommend this place to everybody. You wil not be sorry...

I have eaten at the Alaturka several times in the last twelve months and the food has always been superb. Meals are exquisite, well cooked and beautifully presented. The staff are attentive and professional.

The reviews sounded fab but the food and service at this restaurant is very poor. The meze starter was ok but went downhill from there. Lamb the size of a thumbnail and microwaved. Glass of lager was £5.50 and the liqueurs tasted like mouthwash. Worse thing was the service, no organisation and far too much stomping about. A second waitress... More

Pleasant surroundings even though restaurant not in best part of town. Food wonderful with a good choice of menu including the best hot mezze I'd ever had. Quite expensive... More
