Located on South Yarra’s bustling Toorak Road in Melbourne, Yagiz invites guests to experience the flavours of modern Turkey in a vibrant atmosphere, accompanied by a menu that demonstrates the evolution of a talented chef and his kitchen team.

As chef and owner Murat Ovaz describes his restaurant, "Much like classic Turkish food, Yagiz brings people together. I wanted to create an unpretentious atmosphere, where refined dining could be enjoyed in a warm and vibrant atmosphere with no fuss. Expect to experience all the flavours of Turkey with a modern, unique twist."

Yagiz offers a 4 or 6 course degustation menu as well as à la carte. Our interesting wine list by award winning sommelier Christian Maier is open-minded with an emphasis on lesser known Turkish wines as well as smaller Australian and European producers.

Yagiz honours Murat Ovaz’s culinary foundations while embracing modern cuisine and the multicultural influences that come with i

We had a great night at Yagiz on Monday night. We were a party of three and decided to go for the set menu. It was fabulous. Quite a lot of food but SO delicious. Each course was an excellent individual experience. And we had a magnificent bottle of Turkish red wine, Pinot style.
The architecture and decor is beautiful. Understated with a great eye for detail.
I will definitely be going back and recommending it to friends.
The homemade bread was so good, I bought a loaf to take home!

I am a Turkish man who was born and risen in Turkey and I have eaten many types of Turkish food all around the Turkey but I have to say I am very impressed with food ! It was traditional and very unique at the same time and incredibly delicious as well. The ambiance was quite and calm also the staff was very polite and friendly, I felt home . Thank you very much and we will be back soon !

Very good food, above good service, OK prices and nice fir out.
Only complaint the mindless, brain numbing thump of just the bass from some forgettable "music".
With plenty of ambiance and nice levels of chatter, the hideous thump, thump,thump does nothing to improve the experience. Turn it off, or at least turn the bass off so someone might actually hear the music.
Actually ,forget that, just turn it off, end of.

The food was expertly and delicately prepared, with good proportions and a varied selection of side dishes. The Turkish based cuisine was refreshing to experience. The service was friendly and efficient without being excessive - the waiter in addition to communicating a good understanding of the menu had a good knowledge of the wine list including a number of Turkish wines which were a pleasure to enjoy in red. Pleasant and well designed environment with a comfortable separation between tables!
