This restaurant has only recently opened but already it has a faithful clientele. We decided to have a starter and main course. The three hot meze dishes were almost a meal in themselves and the quantity of food in th main courses was almost beyond belief.
The wine list is quite extensive and not too expensive.
We will be back.

Four of us had a meal this week at A La Turka - quite recently opened in Canterbury so our first time but definitely won't be our last!! Portions are large - so would suggest sharing starters one between two or for larger parties choose to share the mezes. We had the tarama, whitebait, liver and courgette flowers to start - pretty much meals in themselves! Lamb and fish casseroles (not together!) with rice and salad completed the meal. Staff are very welcoming and service is very good. The Turkish wines are surprisingly good and well-priced - essentially, nothing not to like about this restaurant!!

I first visited this restaurant in February 2014 and it had just opened that week. I have frequently returned. The meat platter is delicious it is a generous portion served on a bed of Couscous and rice with pitta breads. The starters were delicious and their Humous is very tasty. The vibe in the restaurant is cool and so is the crowd.

As a family of 4, we had a lovely meal today in the garden at the rear of the restaurant. Food and service was great. We drove 40 miles having seen the reviews, we plan to go back soon.
