Lovely food, with a modern twist on traditional dishes. Perfect spot for a business meeting & meal. The banquet caters for all tastes/dietary, is delicious & very plentiful. Gorgeous building & interior too. Recommended!

The food was amazing. We shared the salmon dolma and haloumi salad for entre. I had prawns with saffron and pomegranate for mains. All brilliant. Service was enthausiastic but not calm and quiet which would have suited the ambience better. The girl had such a high pitched voice i really dint want to listen to the specials, I just wanted...

Although not my first choice of cuisine, the food here was fantastic. The service staff were very attentive , without being intrusive. The food came out very quickly, with just the right amount of time between courses. I cannot recommend highly enough,

We went with another couple and every dish we had was just divine. Our waitress was well informed on the menu and was very helpful on answering our questions. The same can be said about our drink waiter. Wonderful ambiance, the restaurant gives out a very special atmosphere which always makes a visit a very special night.

Nice food and atmosphere. The staff were friendly and service fast. I thought that $25 for dips plus $3 for the bread was a bit steep.

I've been to Ottoman many, many times. It rarely disappoints, and never when I see owner/chef Serif prowling the kitchen. A recent lunch was a typical example. A quiet day, but 5 specials on offer, which we took up. A tuna carpaccio and twice cooked duck. Both brilliant! Friendly, attentive service with some good suggestions for accompanying wines. Coffee, and... More

A beautiful restaurant - lanterns, pots, mosaics, surrounded by large windows and lovely gardens. My Turkish friend says it's not really traditional Turkish food, but it was certainly delicious and had all the Turkish favourites you might be looking for. The kingfish squewers were well spiced and lightly charred from the coals. The duck was crispy and a very generous... More

Description
Chef & owner Serif Kaya has been wooing diners at Ottoman Cuisine with his much awarded Turkish food since 1992. Modern day Turkish food is a result of the vast Ottoman Empire, spanning over three continents, with access to many markets & cultures. The menu at the Ottoman Cuisine consists of classic Turkish dishes that have withstood the test of time. There are also the dishes that Serif has created; inspired by his culinary heritage & his new home. The specials of the day bring you the best of the seasonal produce. In the Ottoman tradition, we recommend sharing your dishes in order for you to experience the fantastic range of flavours on offer. Please ask your waiter if you would like to try a tasting menu.
