This restaurant serves brilliant food, and the service was attentive. However, the ambience on the night that we went was terrible - more fitting to a pub than a restaurant. Perhaps the management should ban Xmas parties for PS Departments in the middle of the week in the public area. Our table for two to celebrate my wife's birthday was... More

Our waiter was amazing and offered it to us even though we only had 5 and also explained other specials and the tasting menu. What a tough decision!... More

Food at the Ottoman might look surprisingly simple but the taste and preparation behind what’s on your plate is both impressive, complex and delicious. Service is another strong point, waiting staff are attenttive, confident, friendly and well-informed. Excellent wine cellar.

From the delightful walkway to this old building to the garden outlook from within, The Ottoman exudes elegance. The food is a mix of Middle Eastern cuisine presented in a modern fusion. Staff are attentive and helpful. Each selection we made from the menu was met with approval (we sampled each other's dishes as they all looked delicious). This was... More

Description
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.
