Living in Canterbury more than 10 years, and there was a lack of proper authentic Turkish food, A la Turka serves the best mezze, kebabs and great ambience for good prices..Loved it! %100 satisfied.

Visiting Canterbury for the weekend we were so impressed with this place and very surprised that they had only been open for 3 months as everything - the kitchen (which our table overlooked) and the restaurant itself - ran very smoothly. The food was extremely tasty and fresh and the vegetarian kebab I had was absolutely gorgeous. So good to have a dining venue in which the vegetarian options are not playing second fiddle to the meat ones. Mind you my partner commented that his minced lamb kebab was excellent too. Service was friendly and efficient and if we lived closer I have no doubt this would become a very regular haunt.

We came here on a Sunday lunch with 2 adults and a 2 year old. I suspect the atmosphere would be a lot better in the evening, as we were the only ones in the restaurant. Despite that the staff were friendly, the food was great and the price was very reasonable. We had mixed hot starters, a lamb main (house speciality) and additional hummus. We also had a glass of wine and one coke. In total 32 pounds. All the starters were lovely, the main was fantastic and the flat breads were out of this world. A new addition to the area but a welcome one.

Finally a place where you can get realtuekish food.

I was fed up of "rubber meat & chips" from the kebab shop and the turkish "restaurant" on the high street is not worth discussing.

This place is brilliant. Great quality turkish meals and the portions are HUGE. Excellent value for money and a brilliant experience. It is a small cozy place but the staff re great and you can't beat the variety. Recommended!

Ijust wish they would deliver too!

We visited this place soon after they opened. We were hoping the food would be good enough so we could stop our regular trips to North London for Turkish food. We were very pleased with the food and service and we now visit this place at least once a week. They have a wide selection including vegetarian dishes. In fact, our last visit was with a vegetarian friend and she really enjoyed her food.

We would definitely recommend this place.
