Restaurant Alaturka Turkish Cuisine situated in Shah Alam, Malaysia says a woodfire oven brings out the best of Turkish Cuisine. The restaurant's menu made with their in-house woodfire oven is sure to delight you this Ramadan.

The idea of opening a restaurant serving Turkish food was mooted in 2016. Why Turkish food? Because there are not many restaurants serving this healthy, tasty mediterranean cuisine. A Turkish chef from Australia was employed to assist in setting up the restaurant. He spent 3 months in doing so including teaching the staff to cook the various Turkish food.

Since opening of ALATURKA, we had many patrons, both local and foreigners who have given us good reviews, especially the locals who tasted the food for the first time. For those not in the know, we use firewood oven for all our bread-based food, and the dough is made fresh everyday.

We like to thank our patrons for supporting us thus far.

The ALATURKA team.

Have a bite!

Only the best at Alaturka Turkish Cuisine, Shah Alam.
