I always enjoy having lunch here. The service is great and the food is consistently of high quality. Sometimes we don't even order off the menu, we just ask them to bring a selection of food -- never disappointed!

My first visit to the Ottoman. As a resident Canberran I was quite excited as the Ottoman is one of 'the' places to go. So my friends and I dressed up for a special night out ready for a real dining experience. When we arrived,...More

The setting was excellent, my wife and I were seated at a window overlooking the gardens and water feature. That's as good as it got. Whilst polite, the waiting staff were headless chooks, busy running out meals from the kitchen and ignoring pleas from thirsty...More

Until the professional waitress turned up it was like a scene from Fawlty Towers. The water came. It was taken away. It came back. Still or sparkling. Both came and some tap. But the food is good. Some really good wines and a great atmosphere....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.
