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 5 course degustation menu as well as à la carte. Our interesting wine list is open-minded with an emphasis on lesser known Turkish wines as well as smaller Australian and European producers.

Upon walking through the front door - the decor was all encompassing- loved the vibe. Off to a very good start . The food was beyond sensational- the duck cigars- delicious ( maybe one for entree was a bit mean) - sardine entree - out of this world . Chicken breast unbelievably juicy and so it went on.
Generous servings celebrating middle Eastern flavours. Good value for money.
Barr service very slow on both occasions we have attended. Had to wait b/w 10/15 mins to get attention.
Had a very pleasant Saturday afternoon lunch with good friends. Food was very tasty and service very good
Really nice Restaurant. The only thing is that there was a draft coming from the window onto my back, but the waitress was kind to let us change seats. Food was delicious and prices were reasonable portion wasnt too bad.
Many excellent flavours and different food to try, great ambiance, and wine.
Everyone enjoyed themselves and spoke well of the dinner.
The food and ambiance are exquisite. I was so impressed by the various vegetable and seafood dishes. I very much delighted in the Morton Bay Bug risini. I can’t wait to return!
Lunch was a team get-together - outside of work, well overdue! The venue, meal and service was great, with attendees reaching out, after the event with their comments. Thanks for a pleasant afternoon!
Wow! What an amazing experience. I have always walked past this place and assumed it was a cosy little dining spot, but walking in and seeing how big it was was surprising. The place had a great atmosphere, amazing service and such great food. The $69 chefs menu was really amazing value and we left absolutely stuffed. Can't wait to go back to this gem!
Great night out for a birthday. Food and service was excellent will definitely be back soon!!
Truly delicious food and a lovely relaxed ambiance. Great place.
Everything was outstanding. Will be back as soon as we can.
We had a wonderful dinner, the food is outstanding and the staff very friendly!
Great service and ambiance!
We’ll certainly go back!
Great place for a modern and sophisticated dining experience. Attentive service without being overbearing. All wines were great selections.
Beautiful venue, clean and spacious. Food was delicious and the service was professional and friendly.
Yagiz’s take on modern Turkish is fresh and creative - the halloumi was treated with a lovely tasting topping and cooked perfectly. Interior of restaurant is cool & funky. Staff were friendly and very attentive. Something very nice for we regional Victoria visitors.
Outstanding food, reasonably priced and great service.
This was my second time dining at Yagiz and I loved it. The staff are friendly and happy to explain the menu.The food is amazing in both flavours and presentation. Fast becoming my favourite restaurant.
Yagiz has amazing food and is one of Melbourne dining secrets
The potato pancakes were memorable
Waiter was quite rude in general and tried to kick us out 30 minutes before our 2-hour allotted time limit was up.
Food ranged from average to great. Enjoyed the duck cigars, lamb, potato salad and mousse dessert. The tiger prawns and calamari were average.
The food was excellent. We opted for a la carte as there were so many things on the menu we wanted to try. IN the end, we ordered too much! But the hummus, calamari and lamb were stand-outs!
Delicious flavours, very carefully prepared and presented well. Although we were a group of over 6 people, our request to have an A la Carte experience was permitted. The live music was enjoyable, but too loud to allow conversation including the whole table. It was a very enjoyable birthday evening!
Amazing night! Went with the family and had the chefs selection, everything was fantastic and we can't wait to come back!
Service was not great. Food was good.
We had the best night, the food was incredible and the live music was the best surprise which totally made the night, Thank you so much!
It wasnt that good it didnt match it wasnt helpfull
Inconsistent food quality, some dishes were fantastic and others mediocre.
The service was bad, they seemed understaffed.
The service was very good. All staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and even more delicious than the menu description sounded. It was quite noisy but this seems to be the norm in most restaurants these days.
Excellent food , service, live music at just the right level and ambience
Great original Turkish food in a modern presentation. Great location.
High quality food and good value for money. Great place to go out on a date.
There is nothing that doesn’t deserve praise about Yagiz as a restaurant. Murat runs a tight ship and has compiled a faultless menu. I cannot wait for my next visit.
Catching up with an old friend. Have been before, her first time, and we both loved every mouthful. Delicious, modern Turkish food. The lentil balls were really tasty. Looking forward to going again..
My friends and I had a great night at Yagiz. We booked a group dinner for my birthday and was upgraded to the private function room to much of our surprise! The food & service was excellent and the staff were so friendly and joined us in our celebration to much of our joy! Thank you Murat and his wonderful team! We will be back!
Great food and service.
We found set menu had too much food
Absolutely loved our night. We’ll be back soon!!!!
Delicious food , terrific staff and gentle , stylish ambience .
Amazing food service and energy! Marie whom was one of the waitresses was incredibly friendly and always making sure we were well looked after through out the night. I can't wait to come back!
