I visited for dinner and I left thinking that this is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Yes it is a bit pricey but worth it. Kingfish skewers were amazing and the flavour of the lamb kebabs was outstanding. It is...More

It was a costly exercise as the food was average quality. The servings were very small. I would not mind paying if the quality was good.

Walking along the path and into Ottoman Cuisine is unlike the approach to any other restaurant in which I've dined. The building is a stunning art deco pavilion with views to beautiful gardens. The main dining room is large but the space is made more...More

Chef & owner Serif Kaya has been wooing diners at Ottoman Cuisine with his much awarded Turkish food since 1992. Modern day Turkish food is a result of the vast Ottoman Empire, spanning over three continents, with access to many markets & cultures. The menu at the Ottoman Cuisine consists of classic Turkish dishes that have withstood the test of time. There are also the dishes that Serif has created; inspired by his culinary heritage & his new home. The specials of the day bring you the best of the seasonal produce. In the Ottoman tradition, we recommend sharing your dishes in order for you to experience the fantastic range of flavours on offer. Please ask your waiter if you would like to try a tasting menu.
