We had a 6.30pm reservation on a Friday night, as we were down from Sydney for a running festival the next morning. The waiter took us through the entrees and mains that were on special and while there were a number of entree dishes to choose from, we decided just to go for the mains. I ordered the lamb skewers...

Having said that the food was fantastic and so were the wines. how the chef and the staff managed our table as well as... More

Both my wife and I have previously been to this restaurant about 3 years ago and enjoyed the food and the experience. Our visit this time was again excellent. Menu was extensive with various opportunities to experience new tastes and flavours. This is the place to experiment with the menu and ask the staff for suggestions to help capture the... More

Everything about this place shows style and grace from the charming entrance walkway to the call for your taxi. There is a diverse menu in the Turkish cuisine. Staff are pleasantly helpful while you make your choice but never patronising . On our latest visit we had the specials of garfish and slow cooked goat. We added the sumac tomato... More

I came here expecting amazing thingsy, judging by the reviews of this place. I left feeling very satisifed but not blown away given the price of this place. The waiter was very attentive and about 15 mins (no joke) to describe the specials. The food was very good - but again, for the price you pay ($170 for 2 including... More

We have just finished a birthday dinner at Ottoman and enjoyed every moment and every mouthful. We were served by the very friendly and knowledgeable Clarence who helped us pick the perfect mains and wine. If your looking for somewhere special with exceptional service and ample servings of lovely food - visit the Ottoman!

It was a family birthday so we chose a set menu designed for us by the Restaurant staff. It was absolutely delicious from entrees to desserts - and the wine its was brilliant. The staff looked after us extremely well. A great time was had by all and especially the birthday girl!

It is the restaurant of choice for special occasions and to show of to overseas or interstate friends. The sharing option the possibility for you to bring your own good bottle (which will be expertly decanted if needed) are great pluses. Just about every dish I tried at the Ottoman I had to say I couldn't have done it myself.... More
