Took my husband here for a birthday lunch and we are never disappointed. Great choice of meals on the menu, and then there are the unlisted "specials" of the day. Wide choice of wines and other drinks. The tables are nicely spaced out, so that...More

We arrived, were seated on a corner by windows on two sides. The restaurant had patrons but not at all crowded. We ordered our appetizer and meals, and waited. We had ordered our "entree" (appetizer in the US) of stuffed eggplant. It sounded wonderful. After...More

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.
