There are plenty of superb restaurants to be found all over Manchester, from the restaurants that line the Curry Mile and Cheetham Hill Road to the countless Chinatown eateries of the city centre, but outside of the big hitters, the standard is just as strong. Turkish restaurants in Manchester are a bit thinner on the ground, but if you’re in Eccles, your local is one of the best there is. La Turka on Monton Road have been offering the very finest in cuisine from Turkey since 2011, providing mezze, grilled meats, seafood and fish – as well as plenty of vegetarian options – to all those that cross their threshold. They’re right in the centre of Monton Village, right on the dining strip – book a table and head on in for a great night out in Salford.
The cuisine of Turkey was once a bit of a dark spot for most diners in the UK – relegated to kebabs consumed after a night on the ale – but as more and more folk take their holidays in towns like Marmaris and Bodrum, tastes are changing. Certainly, people expect a little bit more from their Turkish restaurants in Manchester, and when they choose to make their dinner reservation at La Turka on Monton Road, they certainly don’t go home disappointed. The Turkish food that they offer to the Salford public includes a doner kebab that would be wasted on the wasted, as well as charcoal grill meats, known as ocakbasi in Turkish.
If you make the most to the best Turkish restaurant in Salford at La Turka, you’ll not just be met by meat dishes. The mezze to begin your meal include more than enough vegan and vegetarian options, from hummus to vine leaves stuffed with rice, currants, onion and chopped herbs and falafel, as well as plenty of seafood dishes such as king prawn kebab, lemon and butter chilli prawns, calamari and salmon bruschetta. The owner, Ihsan – an Istanbul native – stands guard over everything that goes on the grill, so you can be assured of a quality meal at La Turka: all you need to do is to book online, gather your pals and then take a trip to Monton Road in Eccles for the best Turkish restaurant in Salford, bar none.
Great food and atmosphere lovely service every time we go. Live local one of the best places to eat and drink in Monton area, keep it up!
had excellent meal service also very good nothing to complain about so good went back 2 days later with son and his wife who also enjoyed food will be going back soon
food was plentiful and very well cooked and presented - definitely worth a return visit. I had the char grill platter and it was a mini meat feast
Food was amazing portions rather large (great for the larger appetite) will go again atmosphere was awesome will be going back soon and will recommend to friends
First of all, I arrived early, ahead of my friends and in the ten or so minutes I was there, the staff were attentive (but not intrusive) and ensured I was OK and had what I wanted while I waited. This might not sound like much, but the day before I had been at a restaurant where we had virtually been ignored, which makes attentive service even more noticeable - and everyone was nice and very friendly. The restaurant itself is lovely but the food is even better! The portions are generous and I can definitely recommend the spinach with yogurt, which, while a typical dish in Turkish restaurants was the best I've ever tasted. We all enjoyed the food and we are vegetarian, pescetarian, gluten-free and restricted diet and we didn't even have to mention any of this because we were well catered for. Finally, my friends and I sat chatting for quite a while and we were left alone to do so, which was great as we hadn't seen each other for a while. I would definitely recommend La Turka and will certainly be going back.
Never disappointed with La Turka, Monton. This visit was for a birthday of a family member who lives in Rutland and was here with her friend. They were thrilled not only with the food but with the whole experience - but added to this the manager was particularly welcoming and friendly - without being intrusive in any way and the staff were also very efficient, friendly and polite. The food is great - highly recommend.
My partner and I were in Manchester for the weekend as my partner was on business. We found La Turka on Google maps and we love Turkish style food. We were not disappointed, the service and food were fantastic and the restaurant is kept to a very high standard. It's a shame I'm not local.
Great night at La Turka on Thursday. Staff were attentive and had good knowledge on dishes on offer (and there are lots). Four of us all chose a different dish and every one was delicious. Would recommend
We always get consistently great food at La Turka in Monton. Friendly service and good value. There is plenty of choice on the menu. Something for everyone.
First time visiting La Turka last night and it certainly won't be the last! Wonderful service and amazing food, portions a really generous size. Lovely relaxed atmosphere.
