    I came here with my family a few months ago to celebrate a birthday and was pleasantly surprised by the standard of food and service. The ambience was good too, with a turkish feel.

    For starters, we had the Meze tabagi ($14.00), an assorted mix of around 6 dips served with Lavash (Balloon bread with sesame seeds). The taste of the dips were interesting and different from the usual fare. They went well with the still warm bread.

    For mains, we had the Beyti kebab $15 , Karisik kebab $19, Balik sis $14.

    The Beyti kebab was a flat bread wrap filled with grill lamb mince and tomato sauce. It was a decent effort but the lamb was a tad too dry.

    The Karisik Kebab was a mixture of lamb and chicken kebabs served with rice and vegetables. The kebabs were grilled to perfection. The rice and vegetables were a good balance to the rich taste of lamb. The kebabs were so good that we had a second serving.

    The Balik sis consist of marinated skewer charcoal grill fish, served with rice and vegetables. The taste was decent enough but the restaurants specialty is certainly in kebabs.

    Desserts came in the form of Baklava $5.30, which is Turkish pastry with pistachios. I would recommend that it be shared as its really rich and sweet. The Turkish coffee had a unique taste too.

    Highly recommended for those in search of something different.

      Well well, we wanted to try something more exotic because was getting a bit bored of eating chinese, western, and jap food. Alaturka serves a sort of combination of turkish and mediterranean cuisine. I had make a reservation in advance, and they saved their best seat for us, which even had a roof that can be open so that we can look at the sky. So rule number one always make reservation before you go. We took a while before we can decide what to order because all of us did not try turkey food before.

      The kofte ($13.00) which was grilled lamb with rice and vege. Turkey really can cook their lamb, or at least at Alaturka they do it well. 4.5 out of 5

      The Etlipide ($11.50) which was baked bread with chicken. Pretty good, i think its quite similar to Italy pizza, but if you had it as main course, its not really filling. 3.5 out of 5

      Adana chicken Kebab ($13.00), it has grilled chicken kebab with rice and vege. 3.5 out of 5

      The Iskender Kebab ($15.00) chicken with yogut. Hmm, it has lots of chicken, but then being the most expensive dish among us, it has no rice, so ordered one rice pilaf at $1.50. Not too bad, but considering it with the other dishes, the price a bit higher. 3.5 out of 5

      The Kuzupirzola ($14.00) which was lamb chop with rice and vege. Although i do not eat lamb often, but the lamb chop here was good enough for me. Alaturka really do their lamb well service. 4.5 out of 5

      All in all, lamb is well done here, the chicken kebabs are also not bad, quite a number of variety of kebab and Ottoman specials they called it. No air-con, but hey come on, for the reasonable price and good food its worth it. If you want something special, Alaturka is the place for you.
