The Ottoman Grill
Authentic Turkish cuisine. Pity not to be able to see the ocakbasi. Dips are the best feature - especially the fresh chilli dip with walnuts. Coming from UK, we find the meat a little overcooked. The breads are excellent. Will be going back soon.
On a busy Saturday night, we got friendly service, if anything slightly quicker than we needed, and extra help with choosing wine.
Choosing the banquet saved any tough decisions on food. The generous platter of six dips was delicious and the bread excellent.
The 'mixed grill' main was tender and tasty and a pleasant variety of chicken, beef, meatball, rice and vegetable.
The baklava was light and delicious.
A table next to us was loud and caused everyone to raise their voices so noise was intrusive until that table left, but no more than dozens of modern cafes are every day. The owner is looking at ways to mute things.
A new favourite for me.
dissapointed with the amount of food served, the banquet for $29/head (min of 2) was very small and pizza expensive for what you get
Group of four from SYDNEY, great food and experience and it lived up to reviews.
Coming from England, this Turkish Grill restaurant doesn't have the range of dishes that we would normally expect. Also, we would normally expect to see the ocakbaşı at the front of the restaurant, and to be able to inspect the range of marinated meats ready to be grilled. Here it is hidden away at the back. This might have something to do with Australian regulations!
However, the range of dips and bread were excellent, and the quality of the grilled meats was very high. Unfortunately, no homemade chilli sauce, which is something one takes for granted in Turkish restaurants in England (as also in Turkey!) Service exemplary. Prices low. Very friendly place - thoroughly recommended. We will be back very soon!
Great tasty food and very accommodating owner/chef ... Thank you for a wonderful night
Family restaurant with delicious Turkish food
We booked 9pm after movies and was perfect
The pide was great and with effes beer and Turkish meatballs yummy
Finished off with Turkish coffee and Turkish delight hmmmm
Lovely family atmosphere with wonderful owners
We didn’t have the dips this time but they are super and next time we’ll have the banquet
First time for us visiting Ottoman Grill . Friendly staff, efficient service . Loved the food. Only negative feedback was the noise level. But we would return
Amazing delicious food, very authentic. This was our first time and we enjoyed every moment of our evening. Food and service is fantastic. I recommend the banquet.
Great food and great service, will highly recommend
We had previously been to Turkey and looked forward to this tasting. We booked early so were served quickly. The food was delightful especially the dips.
Great food. Really clean and tasty. Provided dairy-free options for my wife.
Omar and his team provided great service and we will be returning with friends and colleagues very soon.
Food was delicious, staff friendly and polite although English was a bit of a problem with the lady, but she was very charming. Only complaint no salt and pepper shakers on table.
Went to The Ottoman Grill with family friends on a Monday night. Everything was absolutely perfect! The food was delicious and very well presented. The Chef/Owner was very personable ensuring we were enjoying ourselves. This place is a hidden gem worth finding. Will definitely be returning!
We went last Sunday night & were surprised that there was only one other couple in the restaurant. We had a party of six . The service was prompt, giving us time to chat & peruse the menu & when we had decided the order was taken efficiently & the food was prepared & bought to the table promptly.
the whole meal was very tasty & nice & fresh. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal & would recommend the banquet. We will be back again to try some of the other dishes on the menu.
Found this restaurant a few months ago and just keep going back. Fantastic place.
Had a great time for our sons 18th. Freindly service and tasty food
This booking was with new visitors from interstate whom I hadn't met before. We had a wonderful evening at the Ottoman Grill. With outstanding service and delicious Turkish food at a very reasonable price.
I certainly would visit again and recommend to my friends for lively casual meal.
Great food and service - really enjoyed the meal. Will go again
We have been here twice now and its a fantastic restaurant. Food is lovely. Service fabulous. Only slight drawback was that it was very noisy with a table of loud speakers right behind us. But we definitely recommend trying it out.
Was referred by a friend and didn't disappoint. We had the Banquet and it was plenty of food for the 45 of us. Drinks were reasonable prices too. Will go back again.
Family friendly restaurant. Small menu but the Banquet was good value and opportunity to sample a variety of food. Maybe a little more salad or greens to share. Staff were very friendly. Would definitely eat here again.
Tasty food, very reasonable. Enjoyed the set menu of different dips, meats, rice, zucchini balls and dessert. Good for family, or groups, or if you just like the style of this kind of food . Loved it
Outstanding service, caring staff and delicious food, great value, especially the Turkish Banquet - great way to try everything.
Went for lunch after being recommended. Was not busy when we went but had to go to back to ask for a table.
Food was OK - not fabulous. Would probably not go back again
What a gem! Food was great and the owner a real character. We had a very nice meal and will certainly be going back.
My family and I very much enjoyed the Ottoman Grill Restaurant, the service was fantastic and the meals were very good, overall we cannot fault it at all, we will definitely be going back.
Friendly staff, willing to explain menu. We had a banquet and it was all delicious and plenty of food. Would certainly visit again when back in Glenelg.
Wonderful food, very good service - we were very impressed.
Olma you were a welcoming and friendly to talk to. And amazing and delicious food thank you.
This is my third visit and have already started thinking about the next one !
We had the banquet which was delicious. Loved the dips and bread, best I’ve ever had. We were a group of five and one person thought the salad provided was not adequate for us. Excellent, friendly service. Will certainly visit again.
We had a very enjoyable evening
Delicious food reasonably priced and we loved out attentive waiter
Definately be back
We went for the banquet which was great value. Amazing dip platter and the Zucchini balls are to die for! Skewers and rice were delish, possibly could have done with a couple more skewers (or slightly bigger) and more rice and salad. Baklava was best we have had outside of actual Turkey! Owners are lovely. We will return.
Very friendly and helpful staff, relaxing surroundings and great food. Four of us chose the $29.50 banquet which was sufficient and we didn't leave hungry. The five dips were delicious and fresh with a good supply of Turkish bread unlike most other eateries. All three meat dishes in the main course were tender and tasty and the fresh tossed salad was a nice touch. The baklava dessert is only a small square but that was all we could manage by then plus it was very sweet and a great way to finish. There is a decent wine list but we chose BYO at $10 corkage per bottle.
Looking forward to returning
Delicious food, lovely staff. I recommend the banquet. We’ll be back!
Good food served in a nice quiet setting. It would be nice if there’s more of it though. I’ll happily pay a bit more for it.
Brilliant food and atmosphere, the restaurant was full so noise level was high and , unfortunately, service a little slow
I ordered chicken and received lamb and then had tow wait until they cooked chicken, I would not go again
