The layout of Canberra's Ottoman Cuisine is unique; a sort of babbling brook is bordered by low shrubs as you enter and these features are visible from smaller tables along one glass wall. Reception is at a hotel style desk and you'd better have a...More

I booked for a late Valentine's Day celebration, with our two pre schoolers in their grandparent's care. I thought for a moment, I'd try one of the trendy new places, but decided on Ottoman because we had history with the place. Vindication came in several...More

Now I'll start by saying that I am by no means an expert. However I have been to a dozen or so single hatted restaurants, and a couple of two hatted restaurants. Ottoman is good, but in my limited experience it is only reaching the...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.
