WATCH: Turkish restaurant finally opens in Gladstone
GLADSTONE's eat-out options are broadening, with the first Turkish restaurant now open.
Daniel's Shisha Restaurant opened this week.
After minor setbacks regarding outdoor table service, owner Hassan Hamwi was proud to see customers roll through the doors.
He said their mixed grill was the most popular item on the menu.
"It's awesome to be open now.
"Our food is very traditional. We don't make it to suit Australia, how you eat it here would be how you would eat it in Turkey," he said.
This is the second Turkish restaurant Mr Hamwi has opened, the first was in Dubai.
His family moved to Australia in 2005 for one year, then returned in 2012 to Gladstone.
