We went to Alaturka for lunch today, using a "Groupon" voucher - supposedly providing food valued at $108.40. This is what we received:
3 pieces of turkish bread with 3 dips
2 pasta/lamb dishes - couldn't really taste the lamb.
2 glasses of house wine
sweets "platter" comprised of 5 pieces of turkish delight
2 flat white coffees
Very uninteresting meal - if they were trying to get return business - no turkish feel about this visit - won't be going back.

We had lunch at Alaturka on a Friday afternoon. It wasn't overly busy but then there are a lot of options in Subiaco. We shared the Turkish bread and dips, then I had the Hot Mezze plate and hubby had the Lamb Kofte. All the food was delicious. The wine was a bit pricey but ours was included in the voucher we used.

Alaturka was very disapointing not only was it not busy at all but we waited 1hour and twenty minutes for our main course which was only just edible. awful don't go there
The wine was a clean skin for $40 with their own label - not acceptable. Dreadful service I should not have been surprised as when we arrived someone was complaining about the wait we should have left then.

We arrived after booking several days ahead. Table not ready. That's ok. Sat at the bar waiting and was offered a free drink on the house.I ordered a strawberry daiquiri and on tasting the sugary slurry asked the staff member about it. He informed me that no strawberries were actually in it. He instead plonked the “strawberry liquor” bottle in front of me to read. Oh dear. Forty five or more minutes later (remember we had booked) we were seated. The maître de was very helpful with the wine selection and seemed to know what he was talking about. We were very happy with the red suggested ($55). What followed however was just a disaster. I ordered the Kalamar tava, supposedly “tender squid tubes shallow fried and serves with lemon and greens” ($33.90). What was eventually plonked on the table was a dark brown pile of dried something that could have been overcooked chips, plain burnt batter or cardboard. The “greens” on the side was a bit of lettuce piled high with raw onion. No lemon, but a little bucket of mayonnaise called surprisingly aioli. At least that added some lubrication to the dry fried mess. Completely inedible. After trying my best, I sent it back and grudgingly was offered another dish. The Moussaka exchange was equally awful. A slush puddle of wet sloppy mince and salt slopped into a dugout canoe of half an eggplant. This place is unbelievably awful. Do not waste your time or money. There seems to be a relentless array of vouchers and discounts for this joint. It must be the only way to get someone through the door.

Visited on a Monday lunchtime so the place was not busy. However, the decor is pleasing, the staff were friendly and the food was very good.
We started with a hot meze which was varied and delicious and a plate of garic prawns garnished with a fresh, flavoursome salsa.
For mains one of us had grilled salmon and the other swordfish. Both dishes were acompanied by sweet potato wedges,green beans and a medley of chopped salad vegetables. all fresh and tasty. We washed this down with a bottle of sav. blanc. and then finished with turkish coffee with a small plate of turikish delight.
You could get a good meal by just ordering mains as most of the patrons did.this would set you back around $28
