"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.
