Expect to experience all the flavours of Turkey with a modern, unique twist."

Really nice, semi fine dining experience, our waiter was the perfect balance of helpful but not intrusive. The food was outstanding. Every dish was really nice. Highlights for me were the Lamb, Chicken and Brussel Sprouts.
Thank you for your great review and see you again when we reopen.
Very friendly and efficient service from all the staff. We had the chef selection menu which consisted of 5 dishes all were very tasty and well presented. We had some Turkish wine, which was good too. The staff had excellent product and wine knowledge! We now want to go and try the rest of the menu!
Thank you for your review and see you again soon.
Everything about Yagiz was amazing. Will be recommending to anyone I can

Great location with excellent service from beginning to end. Everyone stayed safe!
Thank you and see you soon again!
Perfect evening - food, service, ambience. Thank you
Thank you so much and see you again soon!
This was my first post COVID meal out and I enjoyed every moment. We had certain dietary requirements that were met with the opportunity to taste some amazing and very different food. It felt like the chef had spent the time in lockdown perfecting an already exciting menu. COVID safe practices were implemented ensuring we felt comfortable and relaxed. The fava bean dish was the standout. Can’t wait to go back.
Glad you enjoyed your Yagiz experience and hope to see after Covid is over again!
Delicious, fine food and excellent service. Nice ambience.
Thank you Nicholas! See you again soon.
One of my favorite restaurants in Melbourne so it was an easy pick for my birthday celebration. We booked the private dining room and enjoyed the privacy and exceptional service this offered. The set menu was divine. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Good to hear we are one of your favourite restaurants in Melbourne. See you soon again.
Had the most amazing birthday at Yagiz, we enjoyed the 5 course banquet. Could not fault any dish, every dis was full of flavour and so delicious. The service was also outstanding. Will definitely be back :-)

We are thrilled that you enjoy Yagiz, Nigel. See you soon, hopefully.
Yagiz is a fantastic restaurant with amazing food and superb service. The only slight disappoint was some of meal options had run out for the night. Other than that, I would highly recommend to all!
A wonderful addition to Melbourne's great restaurants
very good food & wine list , excellent ambience
Service was slow but we really enjoyed ourselves
Expensive with no reward. Basic service: dirty cutlery put back on the table between serves to be reused for main meal, delay in delivering menus with palpable silent pressure to order alcohol and non-alcoholic beverages (it was a family meal at 6:00 pm) . Smallest doses possible of serves: e.g. 4 dumplings swimming in soup of burnt butter as a $40 main dish. Left hungry and $200 for 3 main dishes without drinks.
Fantastic food and fantastic service. Loved the whole experience.
My fourth time there and each time gets better.
Yagiz serves a wonderful array of delicious, mouth watering authentic (with a twist) Turkish delights (not the dessert) and it never disappoints. The atmosphere is sophisticated yet relaxed. The cocktails are incredible and the staff feel like family. I've frequented Yagiz several times and will continue to visit because its simply stunning.
Service and ambiance excellent
Cannot wait to teturn
the food here is normal quality，but I do like the calamari～
service…there is a female manager not that polite
other staffs r nice
cocktails r very so so
Amazing Turkish food and all star level customer service. Waitress was very patient and kind, even introduced every dipping sauce. Definitely worth trying!
My new discovery! We had the degustation menu with the Monday night discount. They were kind enough to modify everything for the celiacs. The food was delicious, varied, and very tasty. I'm going back.
We had an amazing experience at Yagiz. We would highly recommend the Chefs selection paired with the Turkish grape wine. The servers went above and beyond to ensure we were all catered to with different dietary requirements. We were also very impressed when a dish was not to our liking and the chef served us another dish for free.
Great food&wine and value for money. We had 4course meal with wine pairing. Good portions size. Friendly staff.
A really special meal in a stunning restaurant. The service was thoughtful and attentive and the food was innovative and delicious. We got the 4 course tasting and would highly recommend.
