A La Turka restaurant is located on the Esplanade at Cairns is a good to very good place to eat.
We've been twice and really enjoyed the fresh quality meat (like lamb and beef) that is well cooked and tasty.
The baba gahnoush salad was well done - lovely chargrilled eggplant and dressing over fresh greens!

This place has absolutely bad food and service. We ordered turkish garlic bread and baba ganoush and the server brought us what she referred to as turkish bread that is served with baba ganoush. We also ordered kids meals and another main course for us. When we asked the server to cancel our order for the garlic bread since our main course also had been served, she tells us that they just doubled the turkish bread instead and she went ahead to charge us for it. We didn't feel like stirring up a fight at night but this just is outright rip-off and the quality of food was very stale.

Stay clear of this spot when in Cairns.

Not that impressive considering price of mains. Side salads not fresh and with no dressing. Nothing particularly bad but nothing to instil another visit.

The food here was average and overpriced. The waiting staff were rude and unhelpful.
Would not recommend.

Had a decent meal here with my family. A few vegetarian options for my mum and the meat was cooked well. We hap breads and dips for starters which were fine and the rice pudding was lovely for desert. I would definitely come here again.
