About Alla Turca Turkish Restaurant
Taste of Turkey
Started with hummus & flat bread starter was mixed mezzes all delish but the hummus is utterly lush. Mains were Adana Shish which was tasty & plentiful & the swordfish kebab in tomato sauce was excellent we managed some baklava & ice cream but were too full for 2 desserts a champagne cocktail each was swapped for coffee before the food coma kicked in! Excellent food server was a great lass who was happy and informative & sure knew her menu great all rounder 10/10
Although it's been here for years, this was the first time we had been & I'm wondering why we left it so long! Booked the 2 course deal which was excellent value for money. Restaurant itself is lovely & we had a nice cosy booth. Service is perfect & waiters so helpful & friendly. Now for the food...Wow! We had the mixed mezzes to share (supplement but worth it) & the waiter helpfully explained what everything was. They were delicious & so full of flavour with just enough to eat without leaving you too full for the main. I had the chicken shish for mains & my husband had the swordfish with roasted veg which he said was amazing. My chicken was cooked to perfection & again full of flavour. Having the bulgar rice & salad with it was also lovely. This is a great meal too if you are trying to be be healthy. We didn't have dessert as we didn't have time. But we will definitely be back & will try it then - they come with a champagne cocktail or mini Baileys which is a nice touch.
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.
