We were very impressed by the quality of the food and the service. The freshly baked bread was a highlight and the staff were very accomodating.

The staff at Turka could not have been more helpful. It was my son’s birthday and they stored and help me set up the cake. The food was delicious. We will be back.

Really great atmosphere, setting and service. We had the breakfast spread for my husband’s birthday and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves.

We will definitely be back!

Love the beetroot dip.
(And thanks so much for not throwing my beanie away-the one I left behind was kept for me to pick up two days later)
We’ll be back. 😁

Our second visit. The service on both visits (the first being a walk-in) was friendly and efficient. The menu is well priced and interesting with the wait staff only too happy to explain some Turkish words that may be unfamiliar. Happily, the menu is not too large but covers enough bases for most people. I find large menus offputting. Recommended.

Very good, pretty place to go for dinner. I enjoyed the pulled lamb shoulder with eggplant, although that was my partner's dish. I ordered the meatball dish. It was a bit fatty to my liking but that's personal preference. The flavour was very good. I could only eat two of those before i dug into my partner's lamb. The dishes are quite big, service is good. We had to put our names and numbers down on a list. I would've preferred for the list and pen to be given to us upon entry before our food came. We had to juggle the board and the food on the small table and touch the pen everyone else had touched before us without having hand sanitiser available. I forgot my purse at home which would've saved the day with sanitiser. It is a bit noisy inside, sit outside, it is nice and warm outside under the heaters.

I booked this for my bday and the waitress knew it was my birthday. I ordered the feast and we waited too long for dessert, that we had to pay for additional parking. Finally we asked where it was and the waitress admitted she forget, with no apology. I told her when the parking expired and she straight out said “ oh yeah there’s no time for it “... instead of rushing it out. Who doesn’t want dessert on their birthday?! I was pretty disappointed. That’s the best part.

Ordered the Falafel Hot Mezze plate and was surprised it didn’t come with bread at all. Had to order bread separately. Falafel was so hard on the outside and so dry inside, it was like charcoal and hard to swallow. Falafel Meze plate only came with small amount of hummus which was disappointing. Had to order another side dish as the Meze plate also only had small serving of vegetables. Seriously, they should have a picture of the Meze plate to at least give us an idea how much or small the servings would be. Meze plates are usually served large at normal Turkish restaurants. Food was not authentic. Our seating was not meant to finish til 7:30, but we were served the bill at 7:15 while we were still finishing our dinner. Will not come back here again

We were early in the evening on a wet night, but it was still a welcoming environment.
Some more Turkish-style music would have been welcomed over the boring Anglo-style that was played.
Service was prompt and helpful, food delicious.
We look forward to returning.

Amazing Turkish cuisine! Go with friends so you can share a few plates. The trio of dips with fresh toasted breads is amazing to share as well as the falafels! Really easy to eat vegetarian or vegan here. The Turkish IPA is a must try for beer lovers.

They also do a great coffee and a great discount if you bring your own cup :)
