My last visit here (Sunday 15th January '17) has probably been the best so far, and i've eaten many times in the various A la Turka's. Always good food here (as is the food the other two A la Turka in Westgate Canterbury and Herne Bay) and tonight was no different. The food was well cooked, attractivley presented and full... More

What could be better than to spend a winter's evening eating delectable Turkish food in a lovely setting with warm and friendly service?!! The vegetarian moussaka and the stuffed aubergine were prepared to perfection - so flavorful, absolutely addictive. The feta cheese salad was simple and very satisfying. Generous portions and reasonable prices, as well as very attentive service and... More

Been here before as a big group but went again as a couple. The service is friendly and attentive. The food is reasonably priced. Be warned though - they are generous with their portions and complimentary extras! This is not a complaint but we probably over-ordered and ate far more than we should have! The food is fantastic, well-cooked and... More

Serves Cypriot Turkish menu, mixture of very high-end kebab type food and delightful middle eastern dishes. Menu as at the St Dunstan's site. A very pleasant meal in nice, welcoming surroundings, away from the city bustle but and accessible 5 minute walk, at the east end of the Royal Mile (Palace St and Northgate).

Booked with friends as we wanted to try somewhere different. Had a wonderful evening- great service and plentiful platters which were the perfect choice for our first visit. Extensive menu- so much to choose! Would really recommend.

We just happened by A La Turka one night while passing through Canterbury with a couple of hungry kids and decided to try it out. As this was our first experience with Turkish cuisine, we were very impressed. We had a large sharing platter that serves 3-4 people. Our group was 3 adults and 2 boys, and there was more... More
