Ate here whilst staying in Cambridge. The restaurant is different in that you can see the chef cooking your food on the charcoal grill. Good delicious and service great too. Thanks.

We tried to get in on a Saturday night in August but they were fully booked...so we went on the Sunday night instead So glad we did The starters were delicious and the main courses were all cooked fresh on the charcoal barbecue - the chicken, lamb and kidneys were fantastic - so tasty and juicy We washed it down...

I have been going to Efe's for many years and have never had a bad meal there. The service is attentive and the food has been consistently good. It can get pretty busy so it is usually a good idea to call first to ensure that they are not booked up, particularly on a Sat evening.

Seven of us visited this restaurant one lunchtime. Excellent, polite, friendly service. Our group contained some fussy eaters but all were pleased. For me - iced melon followed by a melt-in-the-mouth moussaka with rice and vinaigrette-dressed salad (+ hot chili sauce accompaniment) finished with a vanilla ice cream: all very pleasant. Good value. Main courses £9-£15. Would strongly recommend.

We have visited this restaurant many times and always have a great meal. The lamb is always very tender and tasty without any gristle. Ask for some chilli sauce with the meal as it is good with the rice.

Decent Turkish food with a good menu. The atmosphere is nice too. I think they can work harder to improve the quality of their food for the price, but it's a nice place to go to.

I came here for a mid week lunch, and found the food to be consistently good, with a nice range of dishes. I would certainly recommend if you are in Cambridge.
