    The Manager Barush was so rude since arrival. Food came late and we were asked to leave without finishing our meal. It was a family dinner but they refused to put the 7 of us on one table and we were split into 2 tables. Couldn't even finish the meal and we were asked rudely to leave. Will never go to this restaurant any more and i will tell all people u know about this horrible experience. I'm so disappointed.

    Fantastic friendly restaurant with excellent food and great service. The seafood hotpot was full of different delicious seafood, the bread and dips were a hit - the bread was beautifully light and Char grilled and we couldn’t decide which of the 4 dips was our favourite. The 40 hr slow cooked lamb was divine in both flavour and texture. We also had the arancini, calamari and minced lamb pizza. We couldn’t fault any of the dishes, just superb. The only thing I would have liked was to be able to have a reasonably priced glass of wine, around the $10 - $12 price point. I would be happy with a house red. I thought the prices for just a glass were a bit steep.

    The only thing We were not aware the booking was for 1.5 hours and we felt rushed to eat and drink If we had known we would have made a different time It was not communicated until we sat

    Great ambience with welcoming space. Started off ok when entrees were served. After that, waited for over 40 mins for mains. The waiter freely admitted they had prioritised other tables over us. Food was just average plus we were served with burnt broccolini. Definitely will not return.

    We had a wonderful time. Tried the 4 course degustation option and loved every course. Each course was full of flavour and well balanced. Had several cocktails over the course of the meal and enjoyed each one. A big bonus was the friendly staff who were friendly and helpful. A great night out

    Mezze were interesting, complex flavours, a cut above the usual mezze at middle Eastern restaurants. Lamb was delicious and so tender (must have been sous vide before the final oven treatment.)

    Great atmosphere, service and food. Great for date night! We've been here quite a few times and still kicks goals. Prices are a little on the steep side, so that needs to be taken into account.

    The food was good, although the lamb dish was a bit light on the quantity, which was a shame. It had great flavours. Wine list was expensive and mostly Turkish. It was very hot and stuffy inside, not sure if perhaps their aircon was broken. Will definitely give it another go.

About the restaurant

The newly renovated Lezzet with its sandstone arches, dappled lighting & cushions scattered throughout brings a warm feel once you enter its doors.

A stunning back-lit bar sets the scene with Anatolian inspired cocktails on offer, and the state of the art wood fire oven is the star producing mouth watering meats & claypots.

Head chef & owner Kemal Barut has perfectly brought the tastes of the old traditions & modern ways together for a journey to be perfectly accompanied with a variety of Turkish wines on offer.

Lezzet is conveniently located on Brighton Rd in Elwood, at the beginning of Chapel St and a couple of minutes away from St Kilda and Balaclava.

The taste of Anatolia awaits you.
