I’ve been here many times for dinner as a couple and with bigger groups, this meal was not a let down on the previous high standards. You cannot avoid mixed mezes as a starter, superb & worth the supplement on the mixed menu. The bbq...More

Food was lovely, we had hot cold Turkish mezze to start followed by chicken shish. Courses were really nice. With dessert you get free cocktail nice touch but waiting for the bill and rthen waiting to pay it took an age.

Owners of Alla Italia and this it's the same kind of thing. Avoid both, rude owners and trying to grab pennies.

My wife ate some years ago and was worried that standards might have gone down - well, they haven't! This is Turkish "fine dining" so not the usual grilled stuff in the main, nor "Ottoman" cuisine. Both food and wine were excellent, as was the...More

I really cant say for sure - Best to ring them. However, just to let you know its not very good food at all. If you're a foodie try somewhere else and save your money

Description
Award Winning Glasgow City Centre Restaurant - Grill and Meze Bar Alla Turca is 'The Show Before The Show' for Theatre goers who is looking for an Atmospheric & Affordable Pre Theatre Dining 2 minutes to The King's Theatre & 5 mins to The Theatre Royal with our 2 Course Affordable Lunch from £6.95 And Popular 2 Course Pre Theatre Menu from £12.95 With Background Live Music on Fridays & Saturdays. Our Candlelit, Romantic Dinner is on our Affordable A la Carte or Delicious Tasting Set Menu with Champagne Cocktail from £15.95 Per person with background Live Music until late for a Memorable Dining Experience with Style. 'Alla Turca has that magical quality that so many restaurants dismally fail to cultivate - atmosphere! After arriving on a windswept Saturday evening, walking into Alla Turca was like being back in Istanbul... Alla Turca's good - humoured Turkish staff work so fast and adeptly that they almost run, but there's no panic.I would guess that the front-of-house manager knows exactly what's going on at every table at any point in time, which is more than you can say for many British "Fine Dining" restaurants.' Joanna Blythman - The Sunday Herald Glasgow's First & Scotland's Best Turkish Restaurant with Style since 2007. The Best of it's kind outside of Turkey with Authentic Food - Service - Live Music & Atmosphere.
