If dining at Arda Turkish Cuisine for the first time, we recommend taking one of the Caulfield restaurant’s set menus, which allow diners to sample the best that the kitchen has to offer, all for an affordable price. Start with hummus with hot Turkish bread, for example, before indulging in mains like lamb or chicken shish, kofte, pilav rice and iskender clay-pot, with salad and a selection of desserts – the restaurant offers a great vegetarian set menu, too. Or simply order off the a la carte menu and enjoy Turkish pizzas like mince lamb, feta cheese or Turkish pepperoni, plus an array of mains from lamb cutlets to marinated quails. Reserve ahead to guarantee a table at this Melbourne favourite!
Small cozy restaurant. The food here is excellent. I have been visiting this place for about a year and about once a month or once in 6 weeks, and the quality is very consistent. Try the Iskendar Kebab - super yum.
Arda is the most authentic Turkish restaurant in Melbourne. We have been regulars for long time and their quail is the best, so is everything else on the menu. Real home cooking and the service is spot on too. Highly recommended.
Excellent service, very friendly and helpful. We had the special banquet and the food was delicious and meat very tender and tasty - great value!
We enjoyed freshly prepared, delicious food. The set menu gives a good sample of what is on offer and saves the problem of ordering; the quantity was just right. Second visit: will go again.
Had a great night. There were 5 of us so we were seated upstairs. Started with dips, then marinated chicken breast dish, lamb casserole, salad and a few different pide all shared. My favourite was the chicken dish served with rice and salad. The rice, usually to me a filler, was delicious. Service was great. And very reasonably priced.
Delicious fresh food and great service. The dips and other starters were wonderful & the meat was so tender & delicious. The salads are dressed well & crisp, as they should be!
Great traditional Turkish food. Simple but tasty. You have to try the Turkish pide and dips. The bread is to die for! They also have a vegetarian meal which is delightful.
Amazing service, great food and affordable. We celebrated my father's birthday and we all had a great day and were so happy so we will definitely come back.
Excellent service and great food, highly recommended. Deserts and tea are a must and the atmosphere is great. Recommended to go early as it does get very busy.
Nice food, pizzas in particular very good. It was good to have a table upstairs as we were a larger group. The waitress was a bit slow, looked like she was inexperienced.
