Lovely location on Pier 2. The food was very tasty and quite reasonably priced. We struck a bad Waiter. Lied to us that we could only get their Fixed Price set meal when we noticed other people ordering from the menu. Under staffed. Waiters were rushing about. In a hurry to take your order, and rushing off even before you could finish asking them for water. At times, our drinks ran out and we were left waiting a while before we could re-order.

They need a change in attitude - but the food is still great

The food here is modern turkish with full traditional taste. Sensational. One of our party had an entree which he stated was "the best entree he'd had in 10 years". My only complaint was that I wanted to try too many dishes so would have loved a tasting plate - guess I'll have to return. Only down side was the elma chai (apple tea) which is prevalent throughout Turkey. The tea they served us as not palatable and we left it .

Ottoman Cuisine also offers modern Turkish food rather than purely Ottoman Cuisine. What it offers is well cooked and nicely presented. The wine list is good. Service is a little restrained, but perhaps typically Turkish. The more typical Turkish dishes are better than the more experimental flavours on the menu. The charcoal grilled meats are cooked to perfection.

I had heard that the Sydney restaurant was not quite as good as the Canberra site. Whilst totally different both provide a favourable dining experience.
