Visited quite late on Friday night, and were seated towards the front of the restaurant, but still tucked away enough for a good feeling of privacy. Food was excellent and the service was perfect, too! Will definitely be returning in the future.

The restaurant looks small from the outside but goes back away so plenty of room. The service was very good and the choice of dishes was enough to cater for all but the meze expert. We went for the set menu with wine as it...More

Our Candlelit, Romantic Dinner is on our Affordable A la Carte or Delicious Tasting Set Menu with Champagne Cocktail from £15.95 Per person with background Live Music until late for a Memorable Dining Experience with Style. 'Alla Turca has that magical quality that so many restaurants dismally fail to cultivate - atmosphere! After arriving on a windswept Saturday evening, walking into Alla Turca was like being back in Istanbul... Alla Turca's good - humoured Turkish staff work so fast and adeptly that they almost run, but there's no panic.I would guess that the front-of-house manager knows exactly what's going on at every table at any point in time, which is more than you can say for many British "Fine Dining" restaurants.' Joanna Blythman - The Sunday Herald Glasgow's First & Scotland's Best Turkish Restaurant with Style since 2007. The Best of it's kind outside of Turkey with Authentic Food - Service - Live Music & Atmosphere.
