Been here before as a big group but went again as a couple. The service is friendly and attentive. The food is reasonably priced. Be warned though - they are generous with their portions and complimentary extras! This is not a complaint but we probably over-ordered and ate far more than we should have! The food is fantastic, well-cooked and... More

Serves Cypriot Turkish menu, mixture of very high-end kebab type food and delightful middle eastern dishes. Menu as at the St Dunstan's site. A very pleasant meal in nice, welcoming surroundings, away from the city bustle but and accessible 5 minute walk, at the east end of the Royal Mile (Palace St and Northgate).

Booked with friends as we wanted to try somewhere different. Had a wonderful evening- great service and plentiful platters which were the perfect choice for our first visit. Extensive menu- so much to choose! Would really recommend.

We just happened by A La Turka one night while passing through Canterbury with a couple of hungry kids and decided to try it out. As this was our first experience with Turkish cuisine, we were very impressed. We had a large sharing platter that serves 3-4 people. Our group was 3 adults and 2 boys, and there was more... More

The food is fantastic, wonderful flavors. I have been twice now both with groups of over 10 people. Great atmosphere, lovely decor. I felt I would have to be rolled out as I ate so much. Best Turkish food I have had in Kent. Downside: service was a bit slow, and one diner we had to chase up. Could have... More

We went along with a group of friends who like Turkish food. The food was nothing outstanding. More importantly, the service was terrible. They kept missing orders so much so when we ordered starters, they gave us main course. Don't try Veg kebab ever there . Highly disappointing. The worse was when they gave us two menus with different prices... More

A nice little surprise in Canterbury. Went late at night with friends. Sat outside to make the most of the lovely Bank holiday weather. The food arrived promptly and it was simply delicious. The Cacik, Falafel, Adana Kofte and Lentil soup were our favourites. Service from the staff was great as well. Try it !!
