A family-run restaurant serving up standout Turkish fare til the early hours.
Alasya sits in the midlands of Sydney Road, in Brunswick, and has been kicking around in Melbourne since the '70s. Owned and operated still by the same family, it does good, solid Turkish food right up until 5am nightly. The menu reduces late-night so you might be out of luck for dips or salads, but if it's a plate of meat you're dreaming of, Alasya's got you. Next time you're strolling down Sydney Road with a hankering for a kebab, pop in here – get a chicken doner ($16), a lamb sis kebab ($16), or let your hair down and try some mixed meat shenanigans ($17).
While the restaurant closes up at 10pm, you can still get takeaway till 5am, seven days a week.
