My partner and I went there on a weekday night, and used our taste card which gives a two for one deal. Despite being "cheap rate" customers, the service was polite and attentive.
Our starters (Kalamari and prawns respectively) were acceptable but nothing special, a little on the small side and the sort of thing that you might have in a pub etc. Maybe they were not prepared in-house but bought in frozen? I don't know, but they were certainly not a patch on the main courses.
My lamb Kuzu sis (shish kebab) was meltingly tender, beautifully seasoned and charcoal grilled to perfection, really good. My partner had the Alaturka Spesiyal ( mixed grilled meats with bread and a yoghurt sauce) which he declared to be very good.
We didn't try the puddings.
Even with a bottle of Turkish Villa Doluca wine to try, the bill was not excessive. The restaurant has about 12 other people when we were there (us, another couple and a table of work colleagues) but even so the single waiter was in control at all times.
I'd say, give it a try. It's exactly the sort of independent, non-chain restaurant that Ipswich needs more of. We had a good midweek meal in a nice ambience with attentive service. Maybe skip the starters and go for the main event and pudding?
