“Really buzzy atmosphere.”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Friendly welcome. Good food, nice to have a Turkish restaurant in town.Met friends , who had been before, for a celebration supper. We were not disappointed, except for pudding which was not as it would have tasted in Turkey!

“Best Restaurant in Ipwich..Agreed”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We love Alaturka , we first came on a Groupon deal and have been back many times since, also bringing different friends who also agree that the food and service are wondeful.
When shopping in Ipswich on a Saturday it is a relief to walk just round the corner to this little oasis of calm for a 2 course lunch for 7.95.
Someone reveiwed that the Hummus and lamb starter was not too good yet it is what I order over and over and I would state it to be my fave starter of anywhere I have tried.
The staff are friendly and attentive and you must try the Alarturka special for dinner .

“Good food, good value and relaxed”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Visited Alaturka with a friend for long lunch on 14 Dec 2012. Good selection on good value lunchtime fixed price menu. Everything I ordered was tasty and well prepared, plus complimentary bread and olives. Service was attentive and friendly and showed interest in us and what we thought of the food and the general experience. I have been here once before and get the impresssion that the place is devloping and improving over time, so I shall definitely be back, probably very soon.

“Would go back...”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Service fantastic and delicious Turkish food. We had groupon vouchers which encouraged us to go in the first place with our children. We would love to go back again, although the menu is rather expensive without the voucher. I believe a main course is about £12-£13
