The food is amazing, that is all anyone really needs to know. A sharing meze to start gives you a variety of flavour to begin with. For mains, it was a difficult choice what to have, I will need multiple visits before I am happy that I have tried all I want to try. The staff were super accommodating too,... More

A fabulous place with amazing service and great food, portions were generous and food was tasty - we need diary, gluten free food and they have menus for both! On top of that I don't like mushrooms so my dish was made without them. I live about 1 hour away from here but it is worth the trip. We also... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is great, lively and fun. The food is superb, great choice and plenty to share around if you like to try as many variations as possible. The belly dancing between each course was a surprise, was good fun and added to the atmosphere.

So glad we decided to try Alaturka, the Turkish restaurant in Gt. Colman St Ipswich.  Really lovely warm welcome when we arrived and we settled in at our table and picked up the menu. The choices were expertly described and our drinks order taken. The restaurant was quietly filling up and only one table remained when our main courses arrived.... More
