Description: London���s Ottoman Palace, located on the busy Camden High Street, is a gourmet reflection of the very empire which gives it its name. Situated on the dividing line between East and West, the Ottoman Empire gave rise to one of the richest and most exciting periods in history - and almost every aspect of that is celebrated right here in the Ottoman Palace with its lush interior full of atmospheric charm and detail-heavy beauty. Equally, the food you���ll enjoy in these gorgeous surroundings is a glorious fusion of East and West, beautifully spiced and flavoured, aromatic and colourful, the Ottoman Palace chefs blending mezze style dining with more complex dishes particularly focused on traditional slow cooking.

After making a reservation on their website for a birthday dinner, we turned up last night to an empty restaurant and locked door. Massively disappointing for all concerned given that they never called to say there was a problem and they've had to close down. If they re-open I honestly wouldn't bother.

Impeccable, friendly service, delicious, beautifully presented food and an interesting but typically Turkish menu. Well done! We will be back.

I went to Ottoman at Fulham and ordered shawarmas, which were delicious. The staff was courteous and very customer centric, always had a smile on their face.

We went to this place with no expectation. We were surprised to get such amazing food. So good that we plan to go again next week! Kebab was amazing, lamb pieces were to die for. Also Excellent service

Was here meeting family after a short trip to London. We sat at the window for about 3 hours and were well looked after throughout. Had sharing plates and mains. All food hit the mark and was very good. Would go back if visiting again.

Read a load of bad reviews for this place but it turned out to be rather nice. It may not have been as authentic as the food I've had in Turkey itself, but it wasn't far off with the choice of spices and seasonings. Not quite sure what all the fuss is about...

I visited Ottoman Palace for pre-gig food. Have a lot of Turkish food experience and this was among the best I've had in Britain. Warm, soft fresh breads, kofte meatballs were tasty. Service perfect and the ambience is spot on - I want some of those Turkish Lanterns for home now! I recommend this without reservation for those in Camden,... More

We thought the food here was really good. The service was a little tardy which may explain some of the other bad recviews but we would definately go again.

We live in Camden and have been to most restaurants. This was our first visit and it will most definitely be our last. The atmosphere was nice except for the football playing in a room at the side. After 10 minutes of being seated and given our menus another couple sat at the table next to ours. They were served... More
