Friday lunch time at the Caravanserai sees the restaurant empty. The setting is basic, the menu as well,be it that the dishes are authentically Turkish. Food is well prepared, my chicken skewers are well prepared, but the dish as a whole nothing to write home about. Even the price is average. Wine is BYO.

I went to this restaurant 2 weeks ago and I was amazed by the atmosphere. I heard a lot about it before so I was keen to give it a try. It's BYO so if you wanna enjoy a glass of wine with your meal, you have to bring it yourself. Service was very friendly and quick even though it... More

The food was great, and the place is wonderfully decorated. The staff were quite friendly and helpful in all manners of service. There were two downsides for me, it was pretty noisy and lots of movement happening around our table, the second point was that it was definitely not good value for money. I ordered the spinach and goats cheese... More

We enjoyed this night with friends and family. We had the meze plate to start with, the meat was amazing, but the dips were very sad. The fresh Turkish bread was great too. The main were okay.. really disappointed with them in fact. I wished more from this place, but I did not quite deliver for me or my wife.... More

Had the best evening at Caravanseri tonight. Group booking (birthday) for 11 people, service was exemplary, food was spectacular and everyone left very happy. Fifth time I've been to this restaurant and report the same great experience each time. I recommend highly. Special note to the team (chef and guest managers) - thank you.

I won't bore with full details, but basically we had dinner on a night when there was a big function inside the restaurant. We were seated outside, it was cold and windy, it was too dark to see the food properly, we asked for a heater but it never came. We had to go inside and get our own wine... More

There's not too many charmingly relaxed restaurants like Caravanserai that offer BYO $3 corkage per person). The restaurant has been around for years and the perfect go-to for your visitors to Brisbane. The food isn't traditional Turkish but offers all the flavours you love about Turkish food in a clean/modern way. The meze platters are the most popular and so... More

I left the choice of restaurant to my sister during a recent catch up and I was not disappointed. As soon as we walked in I felt like I'd been transported! I loved everything about it, the ambience, the decor and particularly the lanterns. The staff were excellent, attentive and friendly. We had the mezzo platter for two which was... More
