Best chef of Istanbul Coskun, has opened his place in Australia... The cuisine is the interpretation of Anatolian Kitchen, applying contemporary techniques and mind blowing flavour combinations.

We went with a few friends and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The service was friendly and helpful and the menu was interesting. Reminded us a lot of turkey but all the dishes had an interesting twist to it. A touch noisy on a busy Friday night but ok for a table of six. Definitely one of my new favourite places!

Tulum Restaurant Overview

Tasting is believing at Tulum Restaurant where Turkish cuisine is given a fine dining makeover thanks to the revival of classical Ottoman dishes. Finding a home on Carlisle Street in Balaclava, Tulum is frequented by Melbourne foodies, enjoying a polished vibe where crisp whites and warm timbers are complemented by calming turquoise tiles shaped like overlapping fish scales. Giving traditional dishes a flick of modern panache, a skilful kitchen team produces meals to make you salivate and mezze plates designed to graze over with friends. Savour a serve of octopus with pickled mussels, Turkish pilaf, pine nuts and smoked mussel sauce, before a main share plate of barramundi with yoghurt soup, barley, chickpeas and lemon. For a sweet finish, try the pumpkin candy Turkish delight with mousse.

Best Known For

Kuzu: lamb rump, pistachio tahini, Jerusalem artichoke and coffee crumble.
