I returned to an old favourite restaurant and, to be frank, I was disappointed. The Sultan’s Table in Enmore is popular and although being busy can mean fresh food at value prices, it can be difficult to manage. We were seated at the front which is like sitting in the local gyros joint with the delivery guys in and out and take-away customers queuing up. Fortunately, the back room is more enticing. In the past I have ordered the small banquet for my partner and I and shared it with my daughter which gave great value. However, on this visit we were informed that the banquet required a minimum of four diners so we had to order a plate at a time.
They offer the typical Turkish fare you’ve seen at a hundred venues with two untypical meals, guvec (vegies and lamb in a clay pot) and manti, a Turkish ravioli with mince and yogurt. I’ve have never tried guvec but found the manti stodgy and heavy. They have a great range of dips which are mostly delish but the babaganush was bland and the jajik was fizzy and the cucumber no longer crisp. The shish kebab was tender and moist but the chicken kebab although a little dry was still tasty. We also had a spinach pide which was crisp, fresh and tasty.
