I've seen lekker rendered as both tasty and delicious. In English, "tasty" is OK, pretty good, nice, but "delicious" is much more intense, superb, fantastic, great. Does lekker cover both ranges in Dutch? How can I congratulate a host on a really excellent meal? Will lekker suffice?

if you really want to give a compliment you could use 'heerlijk' (delicious), instead of 'lekker' (tasty). the foremost meaning is regarding food, but the use of these words is much wider.
