Great Service & Tasty Food

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... read 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.

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
