I have never been to a Turkish restaurant before and I will certainly be going back. The food was lovely but the service was absolutely first class. I will definitely be recommending this restaurant to all of my friends.

Ipswich is not well endowed with good restaurants so it was great to find Alaturka. It is not fine dining, but you get excellent, authentic Turkish food with well-balanced flavours. The staff were friendly and attentive - we got the impression they were genuinely pleased to see us and determined to make sure we had a good evening. A rare... More

Despite being in central Ipswich this restaurant is in a very quiet street and everything about the food and service is first class. The waiter was always there in the background to see to your every need , nothing worse than having to attract their attention all the time as happens in some restaurants. The entrance is located to the... More

Softly lit, authentic turkish music in the background, you were transported from Ipswich town to the Mediterranean! We opted for the mezze to share which was lovely followed by tongue tingling mains and desserts... More

Visited Alaturka before a gig at the Ipswich Regent (10cc excellent) - we were running a bit late and told them when we were due at the theatre, it was no problem, we were served and fed quickly with a delicious meze and drinks. Mega friendly restaurant, clearly popular with regular locals who were greeted really warmly. We liked Alaturka... More
