We arrived as a small group and waited as no one greeted us and made our way to our table. 15 minutes past and we had to ask for a drinks order to be taken a further 10 minutes before the drinks arrived. We again had to ask if we could have some one take our order. The waitstaff looked stressed but it did not seem busy, I had to call the waitress back before she literally ran off from the food order to order another drink ( this never came). Food is great at this restaurant but the service on this night was very below standard, staff seemed to be more focused on grouping around the coffee machine than paying attention to their tables. The plates were cleared without asking how they were. Very disappointing the only save was that the food is good for those that like Turkish food.

Having been to Ahmet's on Southbank we tried Ahmet's on Oxford Street, Bulimba. The menu is entirely Turkish so unless you enjoy this cuisine it offers no alternatives for those who prefer lighter, less spicy food or those on a diet. However its popularity was shown by the fully booked out tables with groups who all seemed to be celebrating some occasion or another. I am not sure how young children would enjoy the food. Our teenager couldn't eat his order and nothing else appealed on the menu nor our offers to swap with him.The wine list is expensive and meal prices were also rather high. However with Entertainment Book gold cards it became quite good value.
Yes, the regulatory belly dancers were there.

Our lunch on Saturday was an exercise in delight at Ahmets on Oxford.
The staff were outstanding, attentive and totally cool with the variety of kids playing. I should state that the young ones (not mine) never interfered with guests, and kept themselves amused and out from underfoot. One lovely staff member even found a belonging of one of the kids and put it out of the way till she had realised.
The food was brilliant! The dips – DELISH! Even if you think you don’t want them, you do!!! Trust me! The beetroot dip is like nothing on this earth! Don’t forget to ask for extra bread when you run out.
The $15 lunch menu was amazing. Really large serves. The wrap was huge! Imagine a regular café wrap, then triple it! Oh and warm lamb salad is a MUST order. Period.
The whole feeling of the restaurant was one of relaxed enjoyment. There was no pressure, no stressed staff members etc, nothing but good food, the time to enjoy good company and staff that really cared that you enjoyed your experience. I can’t wait to return!

We've been here a couple of times, and enjoyed the food. Mains and dips have always been good. However, they close their kitchen at 8.30 pm on a weekday. I was very surprised to be told they were no longer serving at that time. A shame. We went elsewhere.
