An independent family run eatery that can be found on Guinea Street, Ottoman Grill is the place to be for any fan of Turkish cuisine in Exeter.
Boasting over 30 years of experience in the sector, the restaurant has been able to hone its craft and is seen by many of its local fans as second to none when it comes to providing tantalising Middle Eastern flavours.
The quality that is present in each dish is, in part, due to the fresh ingredients used in their creation – and they become all the more enjoyable when considering the fantastic value offered to tastecard members when they call in advance with their card. This begins with the fabulous mezze starters, which are available in hot and cold plates and include the traditional favourites of the falafel and humus as well as a host of other delights, including the karides, jumbo king prawns in a garlic butter sauce, and the aubergine based Patlican ezme. All of which acting as exquisite pre-cursers for the sumptuous main course to come.
Arguably the stars of the show, as expected, can be seen in their grill section, where the adana kofte kebab of marinated tender minced lamb sits alongside the chicken shish incorporated tavuk sis, and where the vegetable grill of aubergine, pepper, onion and tomato provides a wonderful alternative for the more herbivorous diner. There are also a number of options that promise to satisfy the patrons of all things Turkish, with the mousaka, the cous cous and the imam bayildi being just three of the choices to keep the traditionalists at bay.
Guests are invited to conclude the meal in style with one of the delectable Turkish desserts, such as the baklava and the kunefe, before dipping into the savings and enjoying a drink or two at the bar.
