“Turkish Delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

My first visit to Alaturka with a group of friends. The service is excellent with the server explaining all the options. I had the vegetarian meze which was varied, tasty and generous. The falafels for main course were enjoyable but a little lacking in flavour and the rice pudding with a hint of lemon was delicious.

“Consistently wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Another trip to this brilliant restaurant. The food was as ever, high quality and beautifully presented. There are new additions to the menu too. This place is a hidden gem and in my opinion continues to be the best restaurant in Ipswich. And we are blessed with some fine eating establishments. Keep up the great work!
