About Yagiz

A tantalising fusion of Turkish cuisine comes together at Yagiz on Toorak Road in South Yarra. This newly opened restaurant adopts a philosophy of fine food without fuss, served in casually elegant surrounds dominated by a painting of Mr Yagiz (the Chef’s grandfather) on the wall and a contemporary fit out of distressed brick and authentic Turkish accents. With a menu split between a la carte and a six course Chef's selection, choose from street snacks such as the grilled mackerel roll with isot and heirloom radish, or fava bean parfait with lavash; before larger plates like WA charcoal marrons with pastirma crumble. With 24 hours’ notice, guests can feast on a whole roasted saltbush lamb, with sides such as duck fat kipflers, or perhaps heirloom tomatoes with pomegranate vinaigrette.

The best Turkish food in Melbourne!
I love the unique concept of chef Murat Ovaz. Fine dining with no fuss is his motto and it is just right. Go and try Yagiz. Only open for just 3 months and already got a hat! Woah!! I'll go back soon!


foodie heaven
loved it - stunning food but not uptight









Unique and Delicious
Had an incredibly and unique experience Food is delicious. The best I’ve had in a long time. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend Yagis. Well done Murat


Unique, different - a triumph
Bravo! An utterly unique dining experience, and a welcome addition to Toorak Road.


A turkish heaven and Food Affair
Glamorous new restaurant with dishes from another world- an exotic experience into fresh, simple and iconic flavours. Murat combines smoky eggplant with lamb, calamari with ancient grains and dates with cauliflower- food pairing is sensational with the finale being the ultimate biblical experience cream and honey. A visit to Yagiz is embracing the pure indolence of a food affair, from lush gardens to a beautiful dining experience- enjoy an unexpected trip to a Turkish utopia
