Went here for a mid-week dinner and wasn't disappointed. Tucked away behind the main streets in the city centre, this Turkish restaurant specialises in grilled meat and I chose the mixed grill so I could try different ones. The lamb shish, chicken shish and lamb...More

This is a gem in Exeter. Really authentic, gorgeous, fresh food. Service is 'relaxed' so make sure you're not in a rush. We had calamari, meze platter and then chicken shish. Super impressed. Will be back soon!

We visited Ottoman grill on a Friday night for a birthday dinner, expecting it to be crowded but it was almost empty. Staff was polite, we ordered octopus salad for starter which was not very appetizing, 3 main dishes i.e. Lamb ribs, Lamb shish and...More
