Yagiz | Turkish 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."
Murat Ovaz, chef and co-founder
Since arriving in Australia in 2009, chef Murat Ovaz has worked in top kitchens of NSW and Melbourne, including with Colin Fassnidge at ‘Four in Hand' and as Head Chef of Melbourne's Turkish restaurant, ‘Tulum'. Yagiz is his first solo project, named after his greatest influence, his grandfather. It was recently awarded a prestigious AGFG Hat after being open for just 10 weeks.
Ovaz says "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."
While indulging in the theatre of the open kitchen, diners can select from a unique wine list developed by award-winning consultant sommelier Christian Maier, who says Turkish wines are often overlooked in Australia and looks forward to introducing guests to indigenous varietals, along with personal favourites from across the globe.
Maier says "The wine list at Yagiz is open-minded and nonconformist, emphasizing smaller producers and lesser known wines. Its collection spans the world, with an emphasis on Turkish wines, and Australian and European references for good measure."
Yagiz seats 60 in the dining room and 30 at the bar, and also features an adjoining 14-seat private dining room
