Ordered the Falafel Hot Mezze plate and was surprised it didn’t come with bread at all. Had to order bread separately. Falafel was so hard on the outside and so dry inside, it was like charcoal and hard to swallow. Falafel Meze plate only came with small amount of hummus which was disappointing. Had to order another side dish as the Meze plate also only had small serving of vegetables. Seriously, they should have a picture of the Meze plate to at least give us an idea how much or small the servings would be. Meze plates are usually served large at normal Turkish restaurants. Food was not authentic. Our seating was not meant to finish til 7:30, but we were served the bill at 7:15 while we were still finishing our dinner. Will not come back here again

Smart restaurant with outdoor dining area. Food choices wide which allow plate sharing to be maximised. Dips particularly tasty. Great friendly service.

We were early in the evening on a wet night, but it was still a welcoming environment.
Some more Turkish-style music would have been welcomed over the boring Anglo-style that was played.
Service was prompt and helpful, food delicious.
We look forward to returning.

Amazing Turkish cuisine! Go with friends so you can share a few plates. The trio of dips with fresh toasted breads is amazing to share as well as the falafels! Really easy to eat vegetarian or vegan here. The Turkish IPA is a must try for beer lovers.

They also do a great coffee and a great discount if you bring your own cup :)

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.

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.

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!

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 :)

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.
