Turkish food is great when you’re in Sydney and after something exotic that isn’t Thai, or something less common than frozen yogurt*. It is my go to for occasions that are in between the everyday and birthdays.
The restaurant has two dining areas, one inside where the kitchen is in full view and the plush dining area doubles as a waiting one. Outside, practically all the tables in the al fresco area are filled, dining in and takeaway prices differ with those occupying a table being charged a little more, I’m a sucker for traditional Turkish furnishings so we have a seat and order a few dishes to taste.
These fritters arrived warm but we found them to be largely unimpressive and oily enough to grease Beyonce’s legs, they lacked seasoning and and didn’t taste any of the ingredients listed on the menu: zucchini, carrot, parsley, onion, cheese, herbs & spices it was just like fried dough.
When the shish kebab arrives, the unmistakably smoky scent of charcoal meat removes some of our disappointment from the zucchini fritters we had earlier. Moist cubes of paprika spiced suckling lamb is accompanied by a side of fresh salad and crispy flatbread that goes down very easily.
Sultan’s Table is convenient for city folk who don’t have to traipse far for authentic Turkish cuisine. Service is polite and prompt and now that I know the menu better I would consider returning again.
* I love you froyo but I need to see other types of food as well
