“Great Atmosphere, Even Better Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

We stopped here for dinner after visiting sites on the Suffolk-Norfolk border. The atmosphere was really great, with recorded Turkish music being played and fabulous Turkish tablecloths in reds and blues which stood out against the stone-clad walls.

The service was wonderful, and the server was friendly and attentive. On arrival we were brought olives and celery with a creamy dip which was a nice touch as we looked over the menus. For starters we had the stuffed grape leaves and the grilled goats cheese. Both of these were well prepared and presented, not to mention very tasty. This was accompanied with a really good sesame topped bread. For mains my partner had the adana kofte which was served with rice and a salad. She found the meat really flavourful and the portions generous. I had the salmon which was grilled with olive oil and served with chips and a salad. It had a great texture and flavour, and worth having again. We finished the meal with Turkish rice pudding which was accompanied by a selection of fresh fruit wedges. Overall an outstanding standard of food.

Turkuaz really shouldn't be missed if you are in the area.

“Impressive local restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

On two separate visits to friends in Diss, my wife and I have been taken for a meal at the family-run Turkuaz restaurant. We were impressed on both occasions. The menu and prices are fairly typical for local Turkish restaurants, but the quality of the food is definitely better than average and the portions are generous. Although we only ordered starters and main courses, our meal began with complimentary olives, vegetable batons and a dip and ended with a generous mixed fruit platter. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and profusely thanked as we left, and the service in between was efficient and friendly.
