About Alla Turca Turkish Restaurant
Great deal - Great Food - Great Restaurant!
A lovely return visit to this City Centre eaterie where we received a warm, calm and friendly welcome and the lovely little 'secluded table for two in the corner! Service was, as always, friendly,informative and efficient with well-spaced timing between each of the 3-courses. The food was well presented and very tasty and included: complimentary flat bread, garlic dip & olives & starters were the tasty feta/melon/mint salad & little chicken skewers (battered) with spicy yogurt/salad. Mains were a very tasty Penne Pasta with spicy tomato sauce/cherry tomatoes and olives & Large Chicken Kebabs with rice/salad. We finished off with a baklava/ice cream and an excellent signature chocolate mousse/ice-cream and the free Champagne Cocktail. All food was washed down with an excellent 'house' Sauvignon Blanc and a plentiful supply of tap water. All-in-all at £12.95 for the 3-course + cocktail a great return to a great restaurant just off Sauchiehall Street!
Truly was a Turkish Delight
From walking through the door we were treated like royalty. Got to taste different Turkish wines before ordering a drink (skip the Pinot and try the Turkish wines and beer!) and got some good advice about what to order from the menu. The food was brilliant recommend the meze starter for 2,the swordfish and the creme brûlée with berries and Turkish delight. The restaurant doesn't look the most inviting from the outside but is lovely inside,very Turkish in decor but the service on the day was second to none. Had such a lovely,relaxed lunch that I almost thought I was back in Belek. Highly recommend and will return
Popular Turkish restaurant in city centre
Alla Turca is a Turkish restaurant in Glasgow’s city centre, so authentic that professional restaurant critics have compared it to the mezze bars of Istanbul. A family-run concern, Alla Turca is popular with couples, groups, lunching workers and, given its proximity to the King’s, lots of theatre fans. Thanks to its Turkish cushions and ornamental hookah pipes, Alla Turca certainly looks the part, with unobtrusive live music provided by the house guitarist adding to the atmosphere.
Innovative Turkish dishes using local ingredients
Traditional Turkish dishes are the focus of the menu at Glasgow’s Alla Turca, however they are complemented by the kitchen’s own innovations. Barbecued lamb and chicken feature prominently along side hot and cold mezze such as humus, falafel and chicken skewers. Local ingredients are used where possible and they crop up in choices such as the fresh Shetland king scallops, and house specials include the Alla Turca mixed grill of lamb, chicken, kofte and lamb chops.
Located between Sauchiehall Street and Bath Street
Alla Turca offers private dining for up to 40 people, and the main restaurant is bookable for up to 60 people. Alla Turca is an ideal choice for diners looking for a taste of Turkey. Situated on Pitt Street, between Sauchiehall and Bath Street, bus and taxi links are easily accessible.
