A colleague and I dropped in here for drinks and wanted to order and entree too. The highly officious woman at the door told us to leave as they were a very busy restaurant and did not have time for the likes of us. We were stunned at her rudeness. Such a shame. As I have been here before and... More

Probably Canberra's best restaurant the degustation menu was an improvement on the last time I was there and the portions more generous. I would recommend this restaurant for that special occassion

An annual Christmas catchup for myself and some friends...we would go nowhere else for our annual event. Food, service facilities are top class. Whilst expensive, particularly the wines, it is well worth it. The food is brilliant and we have always found the staff excellent, and very knowledgeable. If you only go once, it is a must.

The food and service is reliably great here. Discreet and quiet enough to conduct business over lunch or dinner, and just as lovely for a nice meal out with friends, or a romantic dinner for two. Waiting staff are very competent and not too intrusive, and the price is right for the food. You will not leave hungry.

Went for a special dinner with family and friends. We had a table overlooking the garden. It was a beautiful evening, the food was superb - we all had Turkish dishes. We did not feel hassled, although they we full. magically we were also attended to quickly as soon as we thought we needed attention. Highly intuitive staff.

The food was good and well presented. Restaurant had a great selection of wine too. Unfortunately, the service was not the best, it was hard to get someone to place an order, and difficult to get someone for more drinks.We were told we were unable to have the banquet due to the fact less people turned up than we booked...

In September, we reserved a table at Ottoman Cuisine for 19:30 on a Saturday in December. We always check reservations and upon calling early on the day of our reservation to confirm, we were told that the restaurant had no record of our reservation. After much discussion, the restaurant offered a table at 18:00 on the evening concerned on the... 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.
