What our Customers Say…

"Four of us ate here last night and it was amazing. We had the no. 2 banquet and we loved it. So much variety and heaps to eat. Too much in fact! Would highly recommend it."
Cort355 from Mid North Coast
" Last night we lucked upon Ala Turka and two lovely hostesses waiting out the front of a pretty empty resteraunt. After a quick chat we decided to give it a try and lucky did. Not only was the food and service sensational but we must have hit upon the place at just the right time as it filled up pretty quickly."
Mutz67 from Canberra, Australia

"Fantastic flavours. My wife had barramundi and said it was delicious. I had a lamb dish which was also very tasty. The decor set a really nice atmosphere with lots of Turkish plates and lamps. Staff were friendly and pleasant to deal with."
