Ottoman is first class modern and authentic! It reaks of class and delivers in all areas.. While it's not "a budget restaurant " Ottoman is a first class dining experience and is a highlight of Canberra's culinary expertise.

The food was excellent, service good, and wine by the glass interestingly different. Have been eating there off and on for years. The quality is consistently tasty, ambience is bubbly without being noisy.

Our first visit to Ottoman and we will be back. Good service and excellent food, designed to share. The gardens would be lovely in the day, night doesn't do it justice.

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.
