Caravanserai has been serving traditional and delicious Turkish cuisine to the good people of Brisbane for many years. You're sure to be transported from Dornoch Terrace to Istanbul within moments of entering the restaurant, and as your eyes adjust to the dimly lit interior, you'll notice tables topped with textiles and colourful candles which create an authentic atmosphere. The space is open, large and able to cater for both groups or more intimate tables of two.

Relish in the ambience for a moment and then get on with the feasting because this menu is best enjoyed when multiple morsels are ordered. The hummus is smooth, creamy and perfectly paprika-ed. Order the dip duo served with babagounosh and fresh, warm turkish bread or sample it as part of the Caravanserai's meze plate. For other entrees, check out the güzel, or mussels in butter and white wine sauce (we can guarantee you will be mopping up every last mouthful with the accompanying turkish bread).

Once you've warmed up your stomach, you'll be ready to move on to something more substantial. The kofta have enough kick to remind you meatballs don't have to be Italian, and come served with a delightful garlic sauce on aromatic rice. But if decision-making isn't your strong suit, it doesn't matter because a banquet is the perfect way to enjoy Turkish cuisine. And with a minimum of four people required to order, its the perfect excuse to get the gang together for feasting and fun times (it is BYO after all).

Caravanserai is an enduring delight. No pretension, just good food and a cracking atmosphere.
