“hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Authentic Turkish food, friendly staff and a relaxing atmosphere. Situated on Clayton St, near Newcastle Central Station, this restaurant is not situated in an obvious location, but it is certainly worth a vist. Fresh, simple, incredibly tasty food, great shish dishes in particular. Reasonably priced and with lovely staff. Also great for lunch, wraps etc.

“Hard to find but worth looking for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is hidden away but a nice place to eat. My friend and I shared the cold meze plate - this was lovely for my friend to try Turkish food for the 1st time as she could try lots of different types of dish. Mains were lovely too and the staff are friendly. Prices are reasonable.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We stumbled upon this little gem of a restaurant while on an overnight trip to Newcastle.
Whilst out for an aftenoon stroll we passed by, liked the look of the place and the menu, took a leaflet from the stowage point outside and when we were back at our hotel decided to book a table.

We were not dissappointed. Staff were charming and attentive. Food was excellent. We had a two course meal (starter and main) and a bottle of wine. We chose a shiraz at £15 a bottle but out of curiosity asked for a couple of glasses of Turkish red to finish off our night and I must say it was slightly better than the shiraz. Next time it would Turkish without hesitation.

only slight criticism is that the portion of rice I received with my main course was a bit on the small side. It wouldn't put me off going again however.

Oh and finally, 2 course meal for 2, bottle of red + 2 large glasses of Turkish Red came in at just over £50. Excellent value for money.

Visited the Ottoman for a friends birthday and it was fantastic! Excellent food, lamb cooked to perfection, Turkish wine was wonderful and service was excellent. Great price as well, will definitely return.

“Love this Place !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

We've been here several times now - the food is always terrific both for quality and value. The staff are lovely, nothing is too much trouble. Even with my awkward ancients the staff are fab !! The lunchtime special is exceptionally good value - not worth cooking at home when you can eat so well for so little ! Everyone we have recommended it to have said the same.
