I visited A La Turka today for lunch with my husband and young son. We hadn't booked but they fitted us in even though they were extremely busy. Food was delicious and tasted very fresh. Atmosphere was great and the decor in the restaurant is really nice. Staff were extremely friendly and very sweet with my son. Lovely meal, lovely staff. Recommend.

We went to A La Turka on Sunday afternoon which we booked with the Groupon voucher. The restaurant was not full but there were a fair few people for a Sunday afternoon. I loved the feel of the place and the waiters seemed nice enough. They knew we had purchased a groupon voucher when we arrived but still produced the menu and left us to it, it was only when asking what we could pick that we realised that we couldn't and that the groupon voucher was for set dishes...this didn't bother me but I was a bit miffed as to why they would give us the menu, knowing we couldn't pick anything from it with our voucher. The waiter then explained that what we would recieve was a mixture of hot and cold starters and if we wanted we could order a main meal too. I think for groupon voucher holders they should probably explain the deal as soon as they customer sits down and explain that if they would like a main course they can order this on top as it isn't clear what is included.

They brought over 2 plates of dips and a basket of bread. I loved trying all the different dips as I would normally only stick to the things I know, they also supplied a decent amount of bread so even after this we were both feeling satisfied. They then brought over a plate of hot starters which consisted of halloumi cheese, falafal, spicy sausage and a cheese filo straw, all of which were very tasty. For dessert they brough over some baklava which was delsicious.

Had we gone out for a proper evening meal and not just lunch we would have probably had a main course too because both myself and my fiance saw many things that we would like to try but we were just far too full to even consider it. We will definitely be making a return visit to try out the mains and I have very high hopes for it.

Looking forward to coming back :-)

I would not recommend using groupon voucher at A la Turka .I bought a voucher for four people,it stated that we will get 16 mezes. But we received 8 dishes of dips and a plate with 4 falafels and 4 cheese sticks.We were rather disappointed .it was not 16 dishes as mentioned in the voucher.I would not advised anyone to buy this voucher.Cost for extra dishes are very expensive for a Turkish restaurant.i
