TURKA - Cafe l Meze l Bar
Overpriced food non authentic food. Waiters are constantly around asking if you ready to order and when you do you wait an age for something as simple as a beer to be served.
The food was yummy, we had a tasting style menu where you got 3 cold mezze dishes, 2 hot mezzes , 1 salad & 3 dips for two people and a bottle of Turkish rose wine which came to about $160. Would recommend.
Accommodated a large party at the last minute and did not disappoint! Excellent food and service and great ambiance for a family dinner. Will definitely be back!
Wasn't particularly impressive. The food portions are very small. The food quality was mediocre. The service staff were very disengaged. There is a lot of competition in Crows Nest for dining so Turka needs to lift their game.
Great food and service! Helpful and friendly staff.
Every item we ordered was exceptional and different. Great clean flavours, excellent vegetarian options (about half the menu). Really lovely, welcoming, helpful staff. Quick service. Great price. Great location and lovely indoor outdoor seating.
I did already. Love it here. Staff great and
Fabulous venue. Great food and service was amazing. Attentive and super fast. We had a great evening and we will be back again for sure. Thank you
Large group of 14 girls. Ordered the $39 banquet.
There was a lot of food. It seemed like we hardly touched it.
My only criticism is that they didn't make it easy for us to take left overs. We were asked to box the food ourselves. Given the amount of stuff on the table, it wasn't really an option. So we ended up leaving it and it got tossed in the bin :-(
Would go back again with large group.
Turka has a nice vibe, I suppose it’s the team that makes the difference. We come to Turka regularly with different groups of friends, because it’s a great place to come. The food great and consistent - flavours, serving size, presentation.
Kudos to the team and see you again soon!
Love this place so much. Great food, atmosphere, service, prices. We are regulars
The selection was fantastic. Service was great friendly staff. Thank you to Amber who was brilliant. Found it a bit chilly while dining.
The service is always wonderful, the team are professional, polite and genuinely friendly. We love the food and everything is consistent. The restaurant has a very relaxed feel, we never feel rushed when we come. It is clean and well presented and maintained.
Always enjoy when we visit Turka.
Really good friendly service.. food came out fast and the dishes were great sizes .. would definitely go back
Great Turkish food and some pretty decent well priced wines. The walnut dip is so delish! Don’t miss the desserts! Lovely staff who look after you very well
Amazing restaurant, friendly staff specially Elif ,she’s very professional and sociable and makes the best coffee , the quality of food is superb and the price is just reasonable
We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Very quick service mind it was only 12.15pm so the lunch hr had just started. Hope it would be the same if came later.
Always good! Our favourite coffee shop and restaurant!
Really good food and service Thank you! We had a wonderful experience
Whilst we had an enjoyable evening it is ridiculous that they refuse to tell customers what dishes are in their set menus - we had a reasonable size group so a set menu option made sense but it was less than satisfactory that we had no idea what was coming for each course - a dampener on the night.
We tried Turka as we noticed the restaurant while driving past. All the food was delicious and very good value, and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly without being over the top. I'll be planning another night there soon.
Great food. The service was good but not fantastic. The place was too cold (on a cold night) A heater would have been nice. I recommend this restaurant - the dips and bread were amazing and so were the meat balls and grilled chicken dishes
Fantastic meal, would recommend the banquets for larger groups as you get a little of all the good stuff.
I felt the table service was lacking in the fact the staff only really came over when the brought the food over.
Overall, fantastic evening and great food!!
Best red wine I’ve ever had. It was Turkish and went down a treat with all the fresh Turkish food laid out before us. Truly worth trying!
This is a MUST visit. The food is wonderful, and good value. The wine list, particularly the Turkish wines, are also of great quality with real value. I enjoy coming here SO much. It's probably my fifth time here, and I would have the same review each time. As a local, I hope they last a decade!
We are never disappointed when visiting Turka. We love the special breakfast they have for two. Yum! The dinner menu is great as well. Although close to a main intersection, it's pleasant to sit outside and not noisy at all :)
Easy to get to, and a good place to meet for a quiet coffee.
Really nice coffee.
A bit haphazard with the food - some orders weren't quite right (tomato missing from a toasted sandwich, lamb missing from lamb gozleme). Portions were large though, and good value.
Had a great time, wait staff were on the ball and friendly, food was authentic with a modern touch, very enjoyable.
I booked a table for 4 on a Tuesday night which provided for a nice and quiet dining experience. On a busy Friday or Saturday night I'm sure things will be noisier particularly if seated inside but that's easily solved by reserving ahead of time and asking for an outdoor table. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive. The amount of food she helped us to order was just right and we really enjoyed ourselves.
Great food, generous servings! Great staff- nothing is too much bother. Lovely venue, very clean and well looked after.
Music was too loud which meant we had to raise our voices to converse- however, as soon as I mentioned it to the lovely waitress it was turned down immediately.
Will definitely be back!
The falafel was great and the baklava was out of this world.
Tasty food served with great attitude. It was a family occassion spanning three generations and we all enjoyed the experience.
We’ve been a number of times and every time it’s very nice with amazing service and food.
We felt rushed the food came quickly and it came all together . No time to digest between courses. The byo charge is also too expensive.
Next time we will request some time between courses, the food was good, so we will be back.
Service was questionable.
The food was average.
I won't be returning.
Great sharing plates of delicious grilled meats, lamb kofta where fantastic. As was the olives to start and smoked capsicum dip
This is my second visit with a different group of friends. We enjoyed the variety of food, the atmosphere is wonderful and the service very prompt, polite and professional. I love how we were never rushed into ordering and most importantly, not rushed out the door. We were there from 6:30 to close, and had a great time catching up and enjoying the food.
Great food and atmosphere but very noisy can't hear across the table too many hard surfaces.
Amazing food and friendly staff! My partner and I enjoyed the dips and Aubergine dish the most. Would definitely recommend!
