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.

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

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

No atmosphere

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 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.

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.

This new restaurant is up the Brighton road end of Jetty road Glenelg. The staff are friendly and the food was delicious. I recommend the tasting platter if you're stuck with what to order - it is the perfect sized entree and meal with a sweet bite to finish off. They have a good range of wines but you can also byo and the corkage is very reasonable. Give it a go - I don't think you'll be disappointed.

We have dined twice at this restaurant and will go back again. We celebrated my wife's birthday recently and the service and food was outstanding value for money. We brough a ckae and the manager added a few candles and dimmed the lighting when he served the cake and everyone sang happy birthday which was very much appreciated.

Great food and hospitable host and great value if you get the banquet. Being New Years Eve it was very busy so subsequently the food took a little longer to come out. I will definitely go back again!

The owner of the Ottoman Grill is really friendly and engaging, while not being intrusive. The prices are amazing, especially the banquet choice which is incredible value for money. Make sure you're hungry before arriving, because you'll be full when you leave.

Great food, good friendly service. Glenelg really needs a place like this at this end of Jetty Rd.
My only concern was that the background comes from a radio station. Some culturally appropriate music would be really good.
Already making plans to back there with some of the family.
