“Good choice of restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

We were in Canterbury for a show at The Marlowe and took a walk around. We plucked this restaurant from the wide choice available and we looking for something that wasn't a chain. We were very pleasantly surprised. The meatball starter was lush and the flat bread they give you was plentyful and fresh. My partner chose the seafood casserole and he loved it. It had an abundance of various fish in and was tasty. My mixed meat option was massive and I particularly enjoyed the rice and extensive salad it came with. I couldn't finish it and I rarely leave anything unless I don't like it. The staff were attentive and happy to help. A very pleasant find and we will be returning when we are next in Canterbury. Very nice hot food at honest prices in a clean and fresh environment. Well done

“Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

A small restaurant serving excellent Turkish food. We shared the hot mezze which was a good mix of flavours. Main course see are mainly grills - it is a barbecue restaurant - but there are other options. We had raki and beer but the wines seemed reasonable. Good atmosphere and excellent value for money.

“Great food, atmosphere, service and value for money - Give it a try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

We discovered this restaurant by accident when staying at the nearby Falstaff hotel. And what a find! The food was well presented, very fresh, came in large portions and was delicious and authentic. We would recommend the platter with meze which we didn't manage to finish despite our best efforts! The service was efficient and friendly, there was a wide selection of drinks and the wine list was not over priced. The ambience of the restaurant is good, with comfortable chairs and proper linen napkins and the music was at just the right level so that you could talk without being overheard on other tables. We found out that A La Turka had only opened 3 weeks ago so I wish the owner every success and would not hesitate in recommending it.
