We booked Ottoman based on reviews on the internet and were not disappointed.
Situated on Pier 2 the restaurant has views of Sydney Harbour Bridge but no real water views. This was more than compensated for by the terrific food, friendly service and heritage locale.
After deciing on the Bosphorus banquet menu as the most appropriate for a party of eight we all enjoyed the selections of entrees and mains that came.
Each dish showed a new modern take on Middle Eastern fare. Traditional dips, vegetable and meat dishes interpreted to suit the cosmopolitan locale. Each dish was tasty and well prepared with the banquet as a whole offering good value and great food.
A wide list of really good wines mostly with mid range pricing enabled all to eat drink and enjoy each others company. Full marks to Ottoman for being somewhere you can talk to your friends in very pleasant atmosphere.
Special mention for the good vegetarian selection - this did not pose an issue to the professional wait staff.
Ottoman is for a special occassion where you dont feel ripped off.
