We were lucky to dine here as I left it late to book. It was a Friday and the place was packed. We were recommended Efes and it certainly lived up to expectations. The food was plentiful ,tasty and well presented. The service was attentive and friendly. Good value as well

This is a good Turkish restaurant with a guy at the grill grilling up the meats in the restaurant. The meal was very simple but consistently good. Would definately go back.

Food is cooked on an open charcoal grill in the restaurant. The food is tasty and well cooked and the service was efficient. It s good value for money and easily accessible in a sidestreet just off the centre of the city

I came across this restaurant when searching for restaurants in Cambridge. The restaurant itself is a very humble place, nothing fancy but the staff and the food are excellent, definitely worth a visit especially if you are a Turkish food lover.. especially the liver, I never eat liver in England but always when I visit Turkey and I wasn't dissapointed...

Fantastic evening inn Efes. Fascinating watching our dinner being prepared and cooked. The chef stayed cool even though it was busy and he was grilling non-stop. Fantastic service. Food was lovely and very tasty. Really pleased we had a fairly long walk home. We had the Three-course special. Excellent value and now we have had a taster of many things... More

The quality of Efes is clear -- wonderful food and flavors, as well as attentive staff who make you feel right at home. I've normally ordered the lamb, which never disappoints. The prices are very reasonable and the Turkish wine perfect. A warm home away from home, especially on a rainy Cambridge evening.

I lived just round the corner from this restaurant for nearly three years before I finally tried it and I really wish I'd gone sooner! The food and service are both great. There are are variety of options and I would definitely recommend the Halep Kebab (lamb and chicken on a bed of toasted pitta bread, topped with aubergine sauce).... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Cambridge. Good attentive service and good food. Especially recommended if you have a mixed audience from many countries (particularly Asia)- with meat and rice you can't go wrong. One minor gripe - in the height of summer it can get quite warm as there is a BBQ in the main restaurant area... More

Pleasant atmosphere and good food. We had the set menu which was a great way to sample the full menu at a reasonable price.
