Critic's review

Kristia van Heerden

Book a special room with a long table, sit on the floor, enjoy a belly dancing show and smoke a hukkah with a cup of Turkish coffee after dinner. An exotic and unique experience, combining the exotic with the everyday. Delightful for a special occasion or a vibey Friday / Saturday night. The meze platter is fresh, fragrant and delicious.

    Terrible experience. No service, disgusting food and zore ambience. If you like to wait hours for terrible service and get ineatable food, then this is the place for you. Expensive as hell with the odacity to include a service charge!!! Don't waste your well earned money on this.

    A’la Turka used to be very nice when they were in Garsfontein years ago; small, intimate, great food. Sadly they have fallen from grace. One cannot complain about the service as there is almost no service. The food is beyond terrible. There is obviously not a qualified chef in the kitchen. Totally over priced for what you get. Give this one a miss at all cost.

    Written by Anastasia on Nov. 18, 2014 A Venue in a Class of its own... A'la Turka Restaurant @ Yadah Castle Has been a Exquisite Experience, I was a guest at the Year End Function for I @ Consulting firm Saturday 15 November, and it was a beautiful Elaborate Affair. The Guest of honor arrived in a limousine, all the Guests were in tuxedo's, suits and Stunning cocktail dresses. The tables were set beautifully with priceless brass centre pieces and lavish red rose bouquets and more. The food was fresh, unique and lovely, to say the least. As for entertainment, it was a mind blow, from authentic Bellydancers, they also ha strictly come Dancing team and the blue room singers,excellent , excellent, excellent entertainment. The Beautiful castle setting, It truly is an out of this world experience for Pretoria. Thank you Ala Turka for excelling our expectations on all levels and I @Consuling for choosing the classiest venue and the exceptional Babor gift sets and The Carrol Boyes signature gifts....A Fabulously Classy Event.

    Once more I have to say that: ambiance is great, the service is excellent, the food is the best. It was my mother's birthday last Friday, and she wanted to have it at Ala Turka. I have never seen her so happy at any of her birthday. They made her feel so special that she can't stop talking about it. We were 18 people and all has left with a big happy smile on their face. Thank you owners, thank you Ala Turka staff for always being 5 star.

    With great expectations we went to A la Tutka at their new Yadah Castle premises. And as great as the ecpectations wete, so was the dissapointment. Not only did the staff not understand their surroundings, but so did the mezze platter's dishes taste all bland and took one pickled chillie to revive our taste buds. Suggestion, travel and experience the real thing before you dish it up.
    If the mezze taste like nothing, how can one consider ordering a main course.
    The erratic decor adds to the dissapointment.
    Vastly over priced for a mediocre experience.
