We chose Mezes for 5 people as our main course. After what we took to be the starter, which was cheap supermarket pre-packed quality at best, the owner/waiter asked what we wanted for dessert. I said we'd wait until after the main course - he...More

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

Had a fabulous meal and thoroughly enjoyed the live music as it really adds to the atmosphere. I had the lamb shish and it was delicious.

Description
Award Winning Glasgow City Centre Restaurant - Grill and Meze Bar Alla Turca is 'The Show Before The Show' for Theatre goers who is looking for an Atmospheric & Affordable Pre Theatre Dining 2 minutes to The King's Theatre & 5 mins to The Theatre Royal with our 2 Course Affordable Lunch from £6.95 And Popular 2 Course Pre Theatre Menu from £12.95 With Background Live Music on Fridays & Saturdays. 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.
