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

The Ottoman has long been regarded as one of Canberra's best dining experiences and so it proved on the night we visited. We chose the banquet on a busy mid-week night in the week before Christmas. The dining room was very busy but this had no impact on the quality or the timeliness of the dishes. It was standard Turkish... More

Just truly fresh divine food you cannot get better in Canberra. Everything was fantastic. It is not cheap but well worth the experience.

Friendly staff escorted our party of six friends to our table in a festive atmosphere. We were treated to friendly service during our delectable feast and our wines and water were dispensed attentively.

we had our anniversary here and enjoyed every minute, the staff were attentive (but not overly so) and the food was to die for!! We will return. :)

Our group of six dined at Ottoman on Saturday night (19 Dec). The restaurant was full, including all of the private rooms. Our meals and drinks arrived promptly. I had been a little concerned that the service may be slow, but the staff were attentive and the food amazing. Sure, the noise in the main dining room was quite high... More

Work Farewell Lunch - We had Banquet, good service, great food however for the price per head there was not enough food, it seems like everything was measured ie 1 zucchini ball per person and 1 chicken (small piece) per person etc.. This choice is not recommended! Service can improve however, still happy with what we got.

We were at the Ottoman last Saturday night and it was obvious that the restaurant was fully booked. Nevertheless we had a great night. The espresso martini and chocolate martini were delicious. Our friendly waitress took time to assist with the menu and her recommendations were very helpful in making our choices. The zucchini flowers were delightful, the cutlets moist... More

I am giving 3 stars and all these 3 stars belong to the great guys in the kitchen. They got it right, everyone else, including the Manager was way off mark – sad. The service was terrible – that is the short end of the review. Ok, it was Saturday night, the restaurant was full, but for a restaurant of... More

Went to the Ottoman on Saturday night with a large group of friends for a banquet meal, but with special dietary needs I could not partake in the banquet. I spoke to the Chef a couple of days before, who immediately said my special needs were not an issue and that he would cook separate dishes for me. I was... 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.
