What's not to love about The Ottoman? Great building, atmosphere, superb Turkish food & lovely staff - a Canberra institution. Hope it doesn't change at its new location?

Consistently interesting, delicious and authentic cuisine in a beautiful setting. The staff were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. It is no wonder that this fabulous restaurant has been a staple in Canberra for so long.

It's not my restaurant, I'm just a customer who reviewed it so I suggest u contact them directly. Some places do close at that time of the year so give them a call.

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.
