In Ipswich there has been a recent influx of Turkish restaurants, however Alaturka stands out from the rest because the quality of the food, the ambiance and the staff attitude. Every time I go there and I feel very welcomed by the staff they know the dishes they know what works and they are always attentive to each request. The... More

I went to Alaturka with 5 other friends for my 18th, and I could not have had a more wonderful experience. Kind, generous and friendly staff, incredibly tasty food and the restaurant is very beautifully decorated. It's great, and it's important to note that the restaurant offers a range of food to suit different dietary requirements. Alaturka is fantastic value... More

I've been here a few times now. Very friendly staff, went to the extra mile and got us a heater when it was a little cold in the extended dining area upstairs. The food is delicious, good portion sizes and you would not believe it but they accept tastecard so you get a great discount too!

We went on the off chance of getting in before going to the theatre (5th Nov) we were asked what time we needed to leave so our meal could be ready before we had to leave. So not only was the fun excellent for all of us (4 adults in total) we were served quickly and everyone was very friendly.... More

Went on a Saturday evening back in February. Reserved a table for two for 7.15pm. Didn't get served starters until 8.40pm and didn't get served mains until 9.50pm despite ordering starters and mains together. Was overcharged by £30 or so and no real apology. Food mediocre. Wouldn't go back.

We arrived on the off chance Friday night and were given a table for 2. There is a good selection on the a' la carte menu. We felt the prices were a little on the high side especially for the quantity of food, we both ordered a main meal as were tight for time due to seeing a show at... More

We came in and ate from the mid-week menu before diving off to a show at the Regent just round the corner. We explained we were tight for time and the staff were more than happy to turn things round quickly for us. It was a beautiful meal and very reasonably priced so we're definitely going back for a more... More

We love this restaurant. Semra (lovely owner and waitress) gives you a lovely welcome. I love the vibrant decor and the Turkish music and lighting,it adds superbly to the overall ambience. The menu is broad enough with fish and vegetarians dishes that are freshly prepared and taste authentic. Some lovely Turkish wines are available and the complimentary bread and olives... More

Our first visit to Alartuka based on the excellent reviews. We booked two weeks in advance. Friendly reception on arrival. Shown upstairs to what looked like the overflow area which lacked any ambience or atmosphere. Waited twenty minutes for our order to be taken then another fifty five minutes for our starters to arrive by which time we had lost... More
