I am from Turkey and was looking for good Turkish food in Philly. This place is one of the worst Turkish restaurants I have ever been in U.S. We ordered eggplant appetizer, iskender gyro and pide with ground beef. Eggplant appetizer had too much tomato sauce in it and very little amount of eggplant. The taste was very sour. That... More

Leziz stood up to its reputation as "The" place to have a great Turkish Meal in the heart of South Philadelphia. I arrived as they just opened up for lunch on a Monday, and we were the only ones there (for now). No worries, because I wanted to have the full experience of tasting Turkish delicacies without the disturbance of... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Leziz on Saturday night. Sal, the owner, has created a homey and service oriented restaurant experience. The dips were flavorful and well prepared, and, unlike many restaurants, they were specially prepared to accommodate my sulfite allergy. The Moussaka was very unusual, and very good, with more heat than I am used to seeing in... More

We had a wonderful meal here. The calamari are fresh and really tasty. The lamb shank was huge, tender and served wrapped in eggplant. I'd highly recommend it as well as the restaurant generally. The servers are very friendly and really attentive. If you like turkish food, this is a great restaurant to go to.

First off, the food is the star of the show, that is why I keep going back there, if it wasn't good there would be no review from me. Service is friendly, with a heavy accent and overall between good and great but there can be moments of ... distraction from the wait-staff (this IS a Turkish restaurant). The atmosphere... More

First let us say that three stars is a decent rating. The place is OK, the food is reliably solid Turkish fare. But our overall experience was quite average. The service was rather sloppy, we weren't given complete sets of utensils, our server's command of English was more than questionable. The interior is OK for a strip mall eatery but... More

This place is located just off South Street in Philly so it's in the midst of a vibrant, active part of Philadelphia. My wife and I ordered the Turkish rolls as an appetizer which is feta cheese wrapped in a light pastry. For main courses I ordered lamb kabobs and my wife ordered some kind of chicken platter with several... More

This is my first review about any restaurant but i felt like i had to share my experience. Worst place i've ever went. We wait 50 mins to get our order and we even could't finish them. The owner was very polite when we first get in the restaurant however when we complain about the foods he was rude. Iskender... More

Authentic Turkish cuisine and very polite and helpful staff. We enjoyed a mix cold appetizer(meze). Especially the eggplant puree ( babaganoush). For our entrees we ordered the Eskender kebab and Manti ( dumpling). We will DEFINITELY come back!
