“Good dinner buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

The food spread especially Turkish was very nice, unfortunately the air-condition was not functioning at all making it very stuffy and humid, and so was the lighting effect very dull and dark.
The restaurant manager Mr Saik was very kind and hospitable offered us the delicious Turkish signature dishes Isekender and meat pastry.

“Poor to entertain”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

The food and the service was pretty poor.... Air conditioning was not functional, felt humid and uncomfortable... I was entertaining some of my colleagues from overseas on a official assignment in HSBC Dubai... Would not return again

“From Ordinary to Poor......”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

In my last review I mentioned that I would not return but then I was invited for breakfast last month by a colleague . . . . . . This would be my third time here...

The staff seemed ok to me and the place was great especially with the beautiful weather....

The food however is really not up to standard .... It was bad enough the last time round but now they have actually reduced the number of dishes for breakfast buffet and the food are still "not good"......

“Best Turkish Buffet in Dubai!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

I went to A La Turca twice so far; for dinner and Friday brunch...I'll definitely go there again! Food is great and service is excellent :) when you go there, make sure to order 'kebab iskender' and a meatloaf...they are amazing :) Zaman, our waiter, is one of the nicest waiters I have seen.
If you go for the brunch, try to stop by the cafe they have by the pool/beach for a little while during sunset.
Really enjoyed my experience there!

Poor service and expensive. Was not busy, but staff was busy with each other chatting. Food was below average. Poor value for money and experience.
