As a Turk, having eaten at loads of Turkish restaurants across the UK, I can honestly say my family and I really enjoyed the service and the food here! This is restaurant easily serves up some of the best tasting dishes! Well done A La Turka!

Went here before a night out, we shared a platter between four of us which was around £30 so pretty decent price! They do amazzzing cocktails. Some of the staff come across a bit rude but I think its just because they dont speak English. Will return - thanks

My last visit here (Sunday 15th January '17) has probably been the best so far, and i've eaten many times in the various A la Turka's. Always good food here (as is the food the other two A la Turka in Westgate Canterbury and Herne Bay) and tonight was no different. The food was well cooked, attractivley presented and full... More

What could be better than to spend a winter's evening eating delectable Turkish food in a lovely setting with warm and friendly service?!! The vegetarian moussaka and the stuffed aubergine were prepared to perfection - so flavorful, absolutely addictive. The feta cheese salad was simple and very satisfying. Generous portions and reasonable prices, as well as very attentive service and... More

Been here before as a big group but went again as a couple. The service is friendly and attentive. The food is reasonably priced. Be warned though - they are generous with their portions and complimentary extras! This is not a complaint but we probably over-ordered and ate far more than we should have! The food is fantastic, well-cooked and... More

Serves Cypriot Turkish menu, mixture of very high-end kebab type food and delightful middle eastern dishes. Menu as at the St Dunstan's site. A very pleasant meal in nice, welcoming surroundings, away from the city bustle but and accessible 5 minute walk, at the east end of the Royal Mile (Palace St and Northgate).
