Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a no frills but amazingly good Turkish restaurant. The menu is diverse and the staff very friendly. I had excellent lamb and my wife shared a mezzi with me. The meal was washed down with a glass of excellent Turkish wine. We'll worth...a visitMore

The customer service is really good, and the food full of flavour as expected from Turkish cuisine. More than half the menu is gluten free, although weirdly their rice contains wheat and they don't offer some plain rice as an alternative. If only they had...the Effes Glutensiz beer too. Second visit and I will probably return next time I'm working in Elgin.More

Firstly let me say it’s a lovely restaurant, the staff are friendly and welcoming , there’s a good variety on the menus and the food was prepared / served in good time. Food was great. One issue , the drinks are absolutely extortionate! We have...a pint of normal coke , a pint of Diet Coke and and pint of blackcurrant and soda , they charged us £6 for each ! When I checked with the staff they advised this was correct. To say I was gobsmacked at £18 for 3 soft drinks is an understatement. For this reason we won’t be going back .More

My family always asks to come here when they visit. Always excellent food and the best service. Love the Adana Kofte and could swim in that chilli sauce. Also recommend the mucver and sucuk starters.

Great food. Everything we had was excellent. Starting with a delicious mix of appetizers for two, then to the main entrees. It was a very busy night, yet the staff was friendly and attentive. Tried my first Turkish beer and liked it.

Ok restaurant, for great Turkish food better visit any of the 3 restaurants in Aberdeen. The bread was good but it wasn’t the traditional pitta. The hummus came with a single slice of bread, not possible to eat it all with so little bread. The...waiting staff was friendly but very busy, so we had to keep asking for serviceMore

In Elgin for some Saturday shopping and walked along South Street to see if Ada was open. It’s a favourite restaurant of ours but has been closed on the last couple of lunchtimes we have looked to visit. It was open (Saturday 26th) and had...4 or 5 tables of diners already. The waitress, although young, was bright, cheery and talkative and the food as ever was perfect and at such a reasonable price. Never disappointed in Ada - it really is such a gem to have in Elgin as part of our wide choice of dining options in the area.More

We booked a meal here while having a 2 night stay in Elgin. What a gem of a restaurant - delicious food, pleasant surroundings and first class service. It took us a while to appreciate that the waiter, Cevdet, was on his own serving a...nearly full restaurant. In common with many hospitality venues they were short staffed. Cevdet managed to deal with everyone politely and competently remaining calm throughout and had a routine that left no table waiting long for service. What a star - I hope his employers recognise this. We hope to return to this delightful Scottish town soon and will definitely return to Ada.More

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Ada is hands down the best restaurant in Elgin. It’s not that the rest are bad restaurants you understand, but simply that Ada is brilliant in every way. Outstanding, authentic food. Charming front of house. What...more do you want? Babaganoush for the win!More

We selected this place for lunch because we were arriving at 14.00 and many places seemed to be closing then, but Ada is open until 15.00. The restaurant and toilets were both very clean and well stocked. The menu has a good selection of dishes....I had the mucver (courgette fritters) and saksuka (vegetable dish with tomatoes, served cold). Both were delicious and filling. All the sides (sauce, salad) were tasty too. My friends ordered wraps, which they enjoyed. Chloe, the waitress was very friendly and recommended the mucver as one of her favourites. Her service was excellent and she took time to chat to us when she wasn’t too busy. We also had coffee, hot chocolate and very nice baklava to finish. We were delighted to find such a nice spot for lunch- would recommend!More
