Overview of Ottoman Cuisine

Ottoman Cuisine is a Turkish restaurant in Barton. Housed in a lovely 1920s building, the Ottoman experience will take you to a magical moment. Baroque décor, Turkish glass lamps and a replica of Sultan Ahmed III's drinking fountain mesmerize guests. The vast space is simply elegant. Linen-clad tables are spaced well, floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlook a peaceful courtyard and shades of blue and grey run through the sleek décor.

Beyond the ambience, the focus is on the Middle Eastern flavours that have earned Ottoman Cuisine a much-deserved rep in the industry's movers and shakers. The modern and classy take on familiar Turkish dishes continues to win more discriminating diners. Choose from the a la carte or degustation menus. Pair with a bottle from an extensive list of Australian and overseas wines. Naturally, you'll end a proper Turkish dinner with a Turkish delight and strong, dark coffee.

    We had the Imam Bayildi (eggplant), Muska Borek (filo pastries with feta and spinach), lamb skewers and the ice creams. All were excellent. The service was attentive and unpretentious. If only their restaurant in Sydney was still open.

    Very disappointed when we dined at Ottoman Cuisine on Saturday 15 February. We had to wait in a queue behind two other couples to be seated and the maitre'd was nowhere to be found and staff ran back and forth between tables and the kitchen. The restaurant has lost its way and needs to focus more on making the experience more special. When we were eventually seated the young lady just pointed to our table and we found our way. My entree was nice but could have been hotter and my main of veal was just OK. We have routinely dined here on visits to Canberra in the past but won't be dining here again.

    The entree was superb, but the main, kingfish, was so overcooked it was chewy and rubbery. Fish should not be chewy. Not what you'd expect for a $70 lunch.

    Highly recommend the degustation menu. Wait staff were very attentive, some people may find it irritating, however, I enjoyed it, expecially since I constantly needed refills on the superb mojitos. Only thing that bothered me was that the olives were served in a pool of vegetable oil, just didn't quite make sense.

    We arrived and I was surprised to see that the dining room was much larger than I had thought it would be. The room was abuzz with conversation and quite busy but the wait-staff had us at our table with minimal fuss.

    Food here is really good, lightly spice and full of flavour. The Kingfish skewers were wonderful. The restaurant decor is lovely, although when full it can be a bit too noisy. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. There were 3 of us and we ordered 3 mains 3 entrees to share. The waitress structured it as a banquet for us, which was a really nice touch. You do need to book though, I rang on Thursday, and Saturday night was already booked out.

    Very good experience. Went with a group of about 10 and the restaurant very busy with other groups and smaller tables. Service was prompt and efficient as were the drinks. Banquet was universally liked by all with good variety and sufficient quantity across all courses. Coffee was good too. All in all a very pleasant evening and recommended.

    We had a 21st in a private room for my daughter. Despite ordering it beforehand, they had run out of champagne! It took them over 40 minutes to bring our first drinks. Food amounts were tiny. They rang us the next week and accused us of spilling something on the floor, which we didn't. The caller didn't even identify himself. They spoilt the whole night - go elsewhere.
