I enjoy Lezzet more each time I eat here. The outdoor tables are a quiet retreat and I’m in the process of working through their delicious meals, exploring the many treats Lezzet offers.

M guest enjoyed his Greek Salad full of fresh Mediterranean vegetables and I had the Köfte with Bulgar Pilaf - it was amazing.

I look forward to my next visit!

OMG! The best grilled lamb chops ever in my life and I don’t expect to get better. Get the mix grill platter. Everything moist, flavorful and has that taste of fire cooked love. They have ample outdoor seating and parking. Huge food options for vegetarians too!
They also serve the Turkish dessert Kuhnefe (spelling?) that is hard to find at other restaurants. Try this restaurant. You won’t regret and will keep coming back. (We drive an hour to eat here bec it’s worth it)

“Lezzet” means “taste” and our experience was wonderful. This appears to be a family-owned restaurant and the food was absolutely delicious. Everything was prepared accurately and quickly. We enjoyed it and will come back again for their flatbreads, their baba ganoush, hummus, and yogurt dishes!

The daily made red lentil soup: you can taste the freshness and care. Great seasoning and lightness.
The baklava: I literally had tears and was in shock how out of the world this tasted. Usually I don’t like baklava but the chef insisted on a complimentary one since it’s our first visit and boy was I blown away. It was crispy, light, perfect sweetness. It has made it to my “best evers” list which means I don’t intend to find better elsewhere….I’m marrying this one.
We also had their mousukkka eggplant entre and the beyti yogurt. Great texture and you’ll leave there with a full satisfied smile on your face.

Most authentic Turkish food I have had outside of Turkey. This is a family owned and run place. Very nice environment and pleasant open view with seating inside and out. The food itself was great tasting and incredibly fresh.

Quiet Turkish restaurant with a great menu very reasonably priced. Service was excellent, fast and professional. We shared a meze -the “cigars” were delicious as was the Baba ganoush, hummus and dolmas. Kofte and falafel wraps were perfect and for dessert, the pistachio cake was super yummy! We’ll be back.

This was my first time. The wait staff was warm and solicitous and really couldn’t do enough for us. The baba ganouj was delicious with the homemade bread. Next, being vegetarian, I had the falafel salad. A Turkish wine was delish as well. All in all a beautiful evening.

I have always received great service and delicious food at Lezzet and this was no exception.

My friends and I shared the Mixed Grill for Four because all are on protein heavy diets. We were very happy with the variety of items and quality of the meal and the inclusion of green veggies including broccoli, peppers and hot peppers was an unexpected treat.

This is a hidden gem worthy of your time!

Dining at Lezzet was a delightful experience from the baba ganoush appetizer with warm flatbread and olive spread, to the friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive wait staff, to the generously-portioned main courses and Turkish wine. My friend and I had spinach pie & moussaka and both were delicious with crisp side salads. If I lived closer, I'd go once a week to sample the different menu items. I'd also take home half my main course and save room for dessert!

I absolutely loved Lezzet and cannot wait to go back! The food was amazing, the service was lovely, and the ambiance of the room where we were seated was so chic. It’s definitely a hidden gem tucked away in the Centreville suburbs, but so close to my house I will be walking there all the time!! 5 stars, highly recommend.

The food was amazing. The lamb was especially good. The service was great, we got drinks and the food quickly. The only downside I found was the decor and ambiance. It was ok, but if they were to have different, more comfortable seating and if the lights had been lower it would have perfect. The food wins out though. I will definitely eat there again.
