We headed to Enmore’s The Sultan’s Table for Turkish delights (of the savoury kind) on a whim after nearby Faheem’s Fast Food was found to be closed. Our cravings for something spicy and subcontinental were overcome once we saw the delicious spread inside The Sultan’s Table, a Turkish kebab shop and eat-in restaurant serving up pides, kebabs, dips, charcoal grilled meats and lots of vegetarian treats (vine leaves, stuffed capsicums and more).
The Sultan’s Table initially looks like just another Sydney kebab shop (with a slightly more enticing array of food on display), but out the back is a simple covered terrace to sit and the food (and charming service) is anything but ordinary.
First up, we had a plate of dips (hummous, baba ganoush and beetroot) and Turkish bread fresh from the oven – a significant serving size for a ‘small’ which could have been lunch in itself. Each of the dips were delicious but the beetroot was our pick. The zucchini fritters we tried were a little dry and uninspiring, but the charcoal grilled chicken shish kebab more than compensated. It actually had a similar texture and taste to chicken cooked in the tandoor, minus the spices.
Ultra friendly staff, amazingly fresh bread and moreish dips. It’s not a visually inspiring restaurant, but like many good places to eat it’s all about the food.
