Situated on the east side of Southampton High Street just north of Holy Rood Church, Ottoman Kitchen is located in a unique building constructed in the 1850s. It is a purpose-built three-storey commercial building with Italianate details. In the 19th and early 20th centuries it was the premises of the Wilts and Dorset Bank and later Lloyd’s Bank. After World War Two it housed a branch of the Woolwich Building Society, hence the name Woolwich House. It was converted to a public house in the 1990s and later in 2019 into the Ottoman Kitchen Turkish Restaurant.

The main restaurant seats just over 120 people and there is an additional private room which can accommodate up to 40 guests for a completely private dining experience. One of the few private dining venues in Southampton.

    The Ottoman Kitchen is a true gem for lovers of authentic cuisine. From the moment you walk in, the warm and inviting ambiance sets the stage for a memorable dining experience. The décor beautifully reflects the rich heritage, creating a cozy and elegant atmosphere. The star of the show is undoubtedly the kababs. Each kabab is expertly prepared, with the perfect balance of spices and flavors that delight the palate. The meat is tender, juicy, and cooked to perfection, showcasing the skill and passion of the chefs. Accompanied by fresh sides and sauces, every dish is a culinary masterpiece. The staff is friendly and attentive, ensuring that your dining experience is enjoyable from start to finish. Whether you're a fan of traditional dishes or new to this type of cuisine, The Ottoman Kitchen offers something for everyone. Highly recommend for an unforgettable meal!

    My partner and I went on a Friday night around 8.15ish hadn’t booked but we managed to get a table, the place was full. The food was amazing 🤩 service was fantastic and the staff were very friendly, I’d highly recommend this place to anyone, when we’re back in Southampton we will definitely return.

    A Turkish restaurant worth trying! The atmosphere and service are excellent. If you go for dinner, you can eat until late. The restaurant is conveniently located on a central street in the city, making it easily accessible. The grilled lamb and beef are delicious. I plan to try the roasted lamb leg for next time.

    Visuals where terrific. Service impecable. The food was ok good portions came quickly but I felt like the food was lacking in flavor in my opinion. I can recommend the smoked menu as I feel there is more flavor in the meat from the smoking
