About Ottoman Kebab & Grill
Dear diners, please be aware that tables will only be held for 15 minutes after your reservation time. Please also note that Ottoman Kebab & Grill is no longer a Halal restaurant.
There is literally nothing about the Ottoman Kebab & Grill that looks like a kebab shop. In place of plastic-topped tables and disposable cutlery, the Ottoman Kebab & Grill is a wood-panelled, proper-cutlery-touting café space which looks much more like a Michelin-starred chef’s side project than it looks to be a place to tuck into a greasy, meaty sandwich. As such, the food at this Kent Ridge restaurant is anything but typical. Find some of the best Turkish dishes anywhere in Singapore here on Science Park Drive in Savourworld.

Fans of Zaffron Kitchen, Prata Wala and , Zaffron Banana Leaf should be pleased with the news that the team have done it again with Ottoman Kebab & Grill in Kent Ridge at Science Park Drive’s Savourworld. Specialising in Turkey’s rich culinary heritage you can expect dishes like borek, pide with lots of toppings, shakshuka, babaganoush, falafel and, of course, the mighty doner kebab, without bowing to the stereotypes of Turkish cuisine as a late-night takeaway staple, Ottoman is singlehandedly transforming the reputation of Turkish food in Singapore.
Turkish cuisine has long been a neglected niche cuisine despite its important status as a crossroads between Central Asian and European culinary cultures – and, at the very least it is rarely given the upmarket treatment it deserves. However, at Ottoman Kebab & Grill in Savourworld on Science Park Drive this is changing. Join the team for Turkish food served right, tuck into generous, filling Turkish casseroles, cooked for hours in the traditional tandir or go for a lighter bite of meaty chunks in pita bread, or opt for a vegetarian dish, typically based around chickpeas or roasted aubergines. For something a little out of the ordinary, try their warm and buttery Kunefe, a signature dessert which is rarely found in Singapore. The food comes plated beautifully and the attentive waiting staff are on hand to help the uninitiated make the most of this Singapore restaurant’s short menu. Want to go on an exciting journey at Ottoman Kebab & Grill? Book ahead to experience the rich and exotic representation of Turkish cuisine in Kent Ridge!
Authentic and excellent Turkish food. No choice is a wrong choice. The location and ambience was great. Service was good with room for improvement. Value for money. Best Turkish food in the eastern part of Singapore.
Ordered the chicken pide and it was delicious. The chicken was nicely cooked and the pide bread was really soft. The restaurant has a nice ambience and we were even treated to complimentary dessert because it was nye. Definitely reccommended!!
Great service and really good food. The staff was really accommodating. They didn't even shoo us away even though we stayed past closing time. One of the best middle eastern food ive had.
Affordable price and awesome food. Quick service as well. Nice experience.
It's my first time to Ottoman Kebab & Grill. My friends and I decided to get ourselves the platter as our starter. I love the goat cheese one, but some of my friends find them a little plain, so it's better to go with some chili sauce! We also tried their Doner Chicken Wrap, the meat and everything is great! And also their Shish Seafood which comes with the flat bread. The flat bread was something I was looking forward to, but it didn't turn out as nice as what I've expected. But maybe it's just me. We also had the Kunefe as our dessert, not knowing what to expect, we surprisingly enjoyed it very much. So I would say it's a must-try! Because we had a handful of us sharing one, it was just nice for us as it's quite an oily dessert (yes it's actually a warm/hot dessert), it may be too much for one/two to finish all. But it's still good. As for their service, I guess they may not be locals, and thus, the difference in pace and expectations. For a couple of times, I couldn't really catch their accent, but it's fun learning to recognize and understand them. It would be great if the waiter(s) could be more proactive in introducing to us what's their 'localized dishes' which first-timers should go for, since many of us may not understand what's 'borek', 'pilav', etc. and have to google them before ordering. Ha. Overall, they are still friendly people! I'll definitely go to this hidden treasure at bedok mall again.
Excellent food, attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere makes Ottoman's a great place for family gatherings, casual dates and meeting up with friends. The kebab choices are generally solid. We did not try any of the stews but will do so on a return visit. The appertisers are generally tasty. Order your mains with rice and pita, and save on needing to order pita separately. The portions here are generous so come with a good appetite!
From a wide variety to choose from, it is definitely a go to food place with you family if you want to try something different than local delicacies. Staff were very prompt as well.
Enjoyed the food but the prawns used were those frozen crunchy type that doesnt taste like prawns... that brings the quality of food down. Some desserts that i wanted were not available.. I wish there was more space to move between tables. Hence not so handicap- friendly.
Food is great though slightly pricey. Not too packed despite lunch hour. Service can be improved by highlighting that our main comes with the bread, so that we do not order the bread for appetizers hummus. Portion is big so recommend to group share.
Their food are fantastic and great customer service. The ambiance is good and environment is clean. I will invite my friends to visit the restaurant again.
Even though we got our seats eventually, we had thought that by reservation, seats would have been ready for us when we arrived; We had to wait for the table to be cleared first before being led to kur seats. Reservations and walk-ins were no different in my view in this instance.
Place is a bit small but the food was good. We went for dinner and the restaurant was packed. There were only 2 wait staff but they were attentive and efficient.
Due to a large team that we went for lunch, the serving is slow and messy, as in some ppl have the food served not the soup, some ppl have the soup but no food. Overall is OK.
Place is a bit small but the food was good. Service was okay as there was only 1 wait staff that day, not sure if that is the norm.
Food was good. Up to expectations. Was rather warm in the restaurant. And my request for a corner table was turned down even though it unoccupied later on.
Always love this place. good food at extremely affordable prices. would highly recommend anyone who has a craving for Turkish food. Quiet and nice restaurant ambience too.
Excellent ambiance and foods. However service can be improved 😊 Overall, excellent experience. Chefs there are friendly and polite too... Thank you ottoman kebab and grill!!!
The soup of the day - Mushroom soup is a bit watery and bland however the rest of the dish we order was quite nice especially Pide Chicken.
This is the 5th time I am dining by here .... Food taste and presentation is good but service is quite poor ... Its not they are rude but quite slow, inattentive ... That needs to change
Except for the beef which was a bit tough, the rest of the food were delicious. The dessert Kunele, love it. Would recommend this restaurant.
User friendly and fast speed. Convenient when in need to book a restaurant fast.
Restaurant did not have our reservations. Service is terrible . Staff looked lost and did not even clear our plates each time we emptied our plates ( we were a party of 8). We had to constantlt ask for empty plates , cutlery etc . Food quality has dropped significantly since Chef Ali left and as usual they always have a choice of only 2 types of meats each time .
Food is generally tasty and comfort dining area to chill out with friends.
Service was a little slow but food was very generous and well cooked.
Nice ambience. Loved the hummus with pide. The kebab a bit too salty to my liking.
Great ambience, tasty food. Good service and authentic Turkish restaurant
Very good value for money meal. Will definitely visit again.
The food was good only thing is not very hot.
Not too bad, worth the time to come if you're nearby.
Quiet environment. Kebab is satisfying. Their coffee was really nice!
