It was a dinner to say farewell and thank you to an employee after 17 years. The Ottoman was picked because of its reputation as somewhere special in Canberra. It did not disappoint. Midweek dinner, but everything worked: the friendly welcome, sorting the wine we brought, help with ordering the food, suggestions, and allowing us time to think and then... More

Our party of 4 arrived almost at opening time [6pm] and were instantly made to feel welcome. On advice that it was a BYO restaurant, we then presented the waiter with our several bottles, of which the red was instantly decanted to allow maximum breathing. We couldn't make up our minds from the extensive and interestingly-described meals so asked the... More

We were a group of 10 booked in for the banquet on Saturday night. We had a great night, wonderful service and very tasty food. A couple of points worth mentioning are - 1. The amount of food served to each diner is a bit light on - one piece of each course is not enough for grown men to... More

It was our wedding anniversary dinner, we got dressed up for a big night out and headed out to the restuarant. The building is beautiful with nice landscaped gardens and water features around it. Pleasant and pretty surroundings. Parking was hassle-free, just off the road outside the restaurant. A short queue at the coat check. My husband was however, not... More

Went with work colleagues. Had a lovely meal,mishearing fish, chicken, lamb, dips. All beautifully presented delicious . Baklava was also exquisite. Not a cheap night out ($60 each, which included only one wine each) but nice. The building itself has huge windows overlooking gardens. Old world charm.

Turkish food should burst with flavour but this has been so pared down for the fine dining Western palate. Restaurant also lacked atmosphere and looked more like a hotel restaurant. The most memorable taste from the evening was the (free) Turkish delight and the front desk...delicious Turkish delight....I filled my pockets!
