Modern Turkish grill favourites Ottoman set to open first city centre restaurant next week

3 May 2024 by Rhiannon Ingle

Exciting news next week as Ottoman Bar & Grill is set to open its very first city centre venue, at Manchester’s Affinity Living development.

All about bringing traditional Turkish cuisine to the waterside of the River Irwell, the independent, family-owned Turkish restaurant will be serving up some proper traditional cuisine.

Made from scratch and using the highest quality ingredients, menu highlights will include Ottoman’s famous chicken and lamb shish kebabs, served with Turkish rice and Arabic salad, freshly made bread and homemade hummus, and specials such as the Lamb Butterfly.

The restaurant will combine the contemporary with traditional, and blend the vibrancy and colour of Turkish culture with a chic and modern aesthetic. The design will feature striking purple, blue, and green colourways, a bespoke bar complemented by custom-made neon lights, and elegant pampas grass and flowers suspended from the ceiling.

Ottoman Bar & Grill also joins independent bakery and coffee shop Loaf MCR, situated at Affinity Living Riverview.

Ugur Ansin, director at Ottoman Bar & Grill, said: "We cannot wait to open the doors to our Manchester city centre restaurant in Affinity Living Riverside next year. We’ve built a solid reputation in Chorley for providing the best quality food alongside a second-to-none service.

"My team has invested their decades of experience as butchers and working in Turkey’s top restaurants into Ottoman – creating a truly authentic dining experience. Manchester was the natural next step for us in opening a second restaurant, and we’ve got big plans to take our dining experience nationwide in the next few years. See you very soon Manchester!"
