Melbourne, VIC

With décor that would be at home in any Turkish village, Lezzet is a modern Turkish Restaurant with a candlelit moody feel at night. It's windows open out on sunny days to a street side dining space overlooking leafy Brighton Road, that is a perfect place to enjoy the weekend Ottoman breakfast fare. But later in the day the menu evolves into a brilliant depiction of a modern Turkish menu influenced by youthful and creative chefs.

Lezzet is a clever combination of modern food and décor with influences of Turkey at every turn.Open for lunch and dinner or for breakfast on weekends. Lezzet offers a modern menu with traditional Turkish flavours to the fore. The stunning presentation of dishes at the table is where Lezzet's Turkish origin is most apparent with wonderful pottery bowls, lidded pans, wooden boards and claypots making a feast of every course.
The signature Wood-fired oven dishes form the basis of the extensive menu that features everything from the famous 18 hour Anatolian lamb to the Turkish ‘pizza' style pastries. The menu also has such dishes as a mezze platter with tiny claypots, 12 spice calamari, Mongolian chicken with dukkah and thyme on cous cous, Ottoman lamb with eggplant, a platter from the grill complete with koftas and sucuk, Turkish breads with anchovies, oregano or marinated olives and the best list of sweets including the most stunning Turkish delight sundae - a multi layered dream with Persian fairy floss.

The Ottoman Room is a clever extension of Lezzet's popular contemporary Turkish dining rooms with its trademark moody ambiance. The room is flanked by swirling curlicue textured, deep, dark red walls, traditional Ankaran Turkish Rugs and Ottoman decorations. There's also a dedicated outdoor space for relaxing or greeting guests.
