Alla Turca Turkish Restaurant Review

  • Rating Rating 4/5
    My daughter, on an obsessively healthy diet, thought the freshly prepared veggy ingredients were wonderful. I'm more of a carnivore myself and felt the menu could have been a bit more varied, but I certainly can't fault the freshness and quality of the meze and other vegetable sides. We had the mixed meze to start - filling, but not too much, and the palate was left refreshed and ready for the main course. I had the Turkish mixed grill - very nice but not conspicuously oriental - and offspring had the chicken casserole, which she pronounced excellent. For dessert, I had the baklava, pleasant but not outstanding, and she had the Turkish Delight Creme Brulée - delicious, in her opinion. Service was excellent, but 10% service charge was an unpleasant surprise - if service is good, I usually tip 15%, but I do not like compulsory charges and there's no guarantee the waiters ever see them. £28 for a bottle of Turkish fizz struck me as excessive - foolishly, I hadn't checked the price beforehand. Overall, the food was of very good quality, but I felt much of it lacked a specifically Turkish character - there was nothing to distinguish the few more exotic dishes from Greek cuisine, for example, and the range of such dishes was not large. Desserts were also rather small for the price. The service was excellent.
