TURKA - Cafe l Meze l Bar
One of my favourite restaurants in Crows Nest, it has great ambience, great food, and great staff!
staff very helpful and thoughtful, tasty food, typical Turkish food. It's great value for money will come again.
The food and atmosphere were good and the service helpful and appreciated.
Always great Turkish food. Staff friendly and helpful
Superb restaurant with quality food and excellent service. It’s great value for money and genuinely lovely service. I have been many times before and will return again
We were looking for something a bit interesting to celebrate a family event and found this great Turkish restaurant. We ordered share plates and the food was fantastic from the dips to the lamb , marinated chicken and baklava. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the staff were lovely. It was good value for money and we all went home with happy tummies. Will definitely be going back.
We came in 15 mins earlier than our booking, however, they were able to sit us immediately. From the time we sat to the time we paid our bill, the service was impressive. They were quick to take our orders and the food came in no time.
Very over priced, almost $20 for 2 small pieces of Haloumi. Meatballs are revolting, staff are friendly but not helpful. Go anywhere else if your in crows nest
I have been to this restaurant a couple of times now. Food and service have been good each and every time.
Lovely, well priced restaurant!
We were very impressed by the quality of the food and the service. The freshly baked bread was a highlight and the staff were very accomodating.
Tasty food, friendly service, and food arrived quickly.
Thank you for an excellent meal, great service as always!
Good food, great wines, fantastic service. What a lovely way to spend a night out with family and friends!
Had a great time here! Excellent food and very kind attentive service! Would definitely come back!
Not a good experience. We ordered and when they served let us know e don't have simit today. Which is not good twy should let customers knows in advanced. They bring some tiny toast which good for soup. Such a bad experience sorry
The staff at Turka could not have been more helpful. It was my son’s birthday and they stored and help me set up the cake. The food was delicious. We will be back.
Really great atmosphere, setting and service. We had the breakfast spread for my husband’s birthday and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves.
We will definitely be back!
Excellent spot for catching up with friends or going on dates. Amazing food and atmosphere. Can get a bit loud so can request to sit outdoors.
Fantastic service and great food. Will definitely revisit
Loved it!! Great location! Interesting menu. Such good food and drinks and lovely people. The staff went way beyond the call of duty to make our visit special! Will be back for sure!!
Halloumi to die for!
Love the beetroot dip.
(And thanks so much for not throwing my beanie away-the one I left behind was kept for me to pick up two days later)
We’ll be back. 😁
Wonderful food, good service and lovely staff. 5 stars
The service was brilliant and the gentlemen servicing us was very friendly and extremely accommodating
A last minute decision
Sultan's lamb and the Chilli Chicken were stand outs
Will be back for sure.
Our second visit. The service on both visits (the first being a walk-in) was friendly and efficient. The menu is well priced and interesting with the wait staff only too happy to explain some Turkish words that may be unfamiliar. Happily, the menu is not too large but covers enough bases for most people. I find large menus offputting. Recommended.
service was a little slow at times, but the food was good. Great location
A superb restautant., excellent food. great service. I'm a big fan of this place and have been coming for a while and will continue. Their slow cooked lamb is to die for!
Good food and good service in a convenient location
What an excellent place. The food was delicious and the portions were surprisingly big. Service was attentive. A very happy experience!
The food here is absolutely delicious and the staff are so friendly!
Great place for dinner or lunch
We like going on a Sunday lunch
Reminds us of Europe
Came here for a girls night out. Food was amazing! Service was brilliant. Felt like we were the only ones there but the restaurant was really busy.
Will definitely be back.
Very good, pretty place to go for dinner. I enjoyed the pulled lamb shoulder with eggplant, although that was my partner's dish. I ordered the meatball dish. It was a bit fatty to my liking but that's personal preference. The flavour was very good. I could only eat two of those before i dug into my partner's lamb. The dishes are quite big, service is good. We had to put our names and numbers down on a list. I would've preferred for the list and pen to be given to us upon entry before our food came. We had to juggle the board and the food on the small table and touch the pen everyone else had touched before us without having hand sanitiser available. I forgot my purse at home which would've saved the day with sanitiser. It is a bit noisy inside, sit outside, it is nice and warm outside under the heaters.
Seating was a bit close considering social distancing, meals took a long time to come out, food was Ok
I booked this for my bday and the waitress knew it was my birthday. I ordered the feast and we waited too long for dessert, that we had to pay for additional parking. Finally we asked where it was and the waitress admitted she forget, with no apology. I told her when the parking expired and she straight out said “ oh yeah there’s no time for it “... instead of rushing it out. Who doesn’t want dessert on their birthday?! I was pretty disappointed. That’s the best part.
Thank you for accommodating our many kids. I love that this place is open all afternoon - perfect for a very early dinner out.
Excellent night at Turka with friends.
Good food, wine and super service!
Will be back
In short, very good. Will return, also with friends, and would be happy to recommend.
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
