“New Age Dining With Old World Charm”

Three decades of tantalising palates…

The journey began by delving into exquisite and authentic Turkish food back from 1983 to 2001 at Ankara Restaurant – Chapel Street, Prahran.

With vast experience to our aide, Lezzet Modern Turkish Restaurant, Elwood was launched in 2003, combining the contemporary and Modern Turkish flavors.

We continued the good work till 2006 when one of our cooks took over the burgeoning business.


What our customers say…

  • I had an excellent time at Arabesque on the weekend. It was a great choice of venue for a celebration. The food and service was fabulous and the restaurant has an excellent fit out. I’d highly recommend Arabesque for an enjoyable middle eastern experience. I also have to add the home made lemonade added great touch to all the other good flavors being served!

    Blissful Experience! – Tripadvisor
  • Me and my family attended this restaurant for the lunch banquet, it was for an engagement. The staff service was excellent, the food which was plentiful with great variety and the drinks kept flowing. The standout is it is really good value for the banquet and the food just keeps coming, by the time we left there was no way we could have dinner.Highly recommended and we will definately going back.

    Great Service, great ambience! – Tripadvisor
  • This amazing Turkish restaurant is a feast for the senses. All that aside its an amazing place to enjoy authenticTurkish food is a 5 star setting. Located just off Glenhuntly Road, the restaurant is stylish and authentic. The food is simply amazing. The lamb tender, the dips divine and the Turkish Delight Icecream is worth the flight from Mesopotamia alone. Just get there and enjoy! I’ve been twice in 2013 and cant wait to get back!
