The atmosphere of the restaurant is great, lively and fun. The food is superb, great choice and plenty to share around if you like to try as many variations as possible. The belly dancing between each course was a surprise, was good fun and added to the atmosphere.

A return visit to Alaturka did not disappoint. Had not booked as popped in after a meeting. Said we were in a hurry and service was excellent even though restaurant full downstairs. I had two starters which were excellent and husband had one main. We were both very happy with choices. Nice touch is 4% reduction on bill if paid... More

So glad we decided to try Alaturka, the Turkish restaurant in Gt. Colman St Ipswich.  Really lovely warm welcome when we arrived and we settled in at our table and picked up the menu. The choices were expertly described and our drinks order taken. The restaurant was quietly filling up and only one table remained when our main courses arrived.... More

Chosen restaurant for a family member 70th was Alaturka. There were 9 of us and we had pre-ordered. Friendly welcome as we arrived to a buzzing atmosphere. Our starters arrived to mixed reviews. My starter peynirli borek (filo pastry cheese and spinach deep fried) was rather tasteless and needed a little bit of seasoning. However the bread that arrived with... More

This restaurant deserves it's rating on trip advisor. We visited on a quiet weekday evening in January and had a lovely time. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the service was very good and the food amazing. I would highly recommend the barbequed lamb dishes. The restaurant accepts taste card so the value was even better but would have been happy... More

Visited for my wife's birthday having not been for a couple of years. The restaurant has retained its ambience and charm and for the first time in many visits, we were seated upstairs, as the ground floor was full. Upstairs doesn't have the same atmosphere as downstairs (not a negative).....that's more to do with the hustle and bustle of the... More

My family and I have only had great experiences at Alaturka, so we visited again for another birthday. The traditional Turkish food is incredibly tasty. Great portion sizes; they definitely leave you feeling full afterwards and are very good value for money. The service was friendly and prompt. The waiter ensured we were happy multiple times and even kindly took... More
