We felt the menu was limited, especially for a vegetarian and the food only average and the prices high for what we got.

Went for lunch..4 adults and my 2 grand daughters...only another 6 diners in..food and service were fine...left a 10% tip on receiving my bill..my fault I should have checked my bill before paying as was disgusted to find a mandatory 10% service charge had already been applied......at lunch time...no repeat visits planned

Our group of 5 people have been recommended to visit this place by other Italian restaurant which was full when we arrived (our mistake for not booking in advance). The food was delicious, and service was good too. Would recommend.

Just been here for a meal with 3 friends. Lovely atmosphere, super friendly staff and delicious food. Italian and Turkish starter platters were yummy. All other food and drink was really tasty too. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. We were made to feel special. You have got to go here!!

Popped in for lunch on Saturday with my husband. We had a 5pm deal which cost £9 each and entitled us to three courses and a drink. We were seated on arrival at a nice booth for two and given our menus. I asked about the Turkish wines and was given some samples to try,ditched the Pinot for the day... More

The Turkish food was amazing and the staff coped really well serving all of the drinks and food... More

I recently spent the night at the restaurant celebrating a retirement. We had delicious food and cocktails served by professional, yet fun and friendly waiting and bar staff. We had the pleasure of being entertained by a very talented guitarist and belly dancer. A must to visit in Glasgow.

Visited Restaurant recently on overnight stay in Glasgow for concert as it was close to hotel and we needed early meal before concert. Turkish/Italian nearly put us off but glad we went in.Service was excellent and good choice on menus Food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

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.
