We had Saturday lunch here to celebrate a friend's birthday. Vegetarians as well as meat eaters are well catered for, although the vegetarian dishes are pretty average. The service was friendly and relaxed. I wouldn't rave about this place but we all had a pleasant time with reasonably priced food. We were all able to cycle to the venue but... More

The food here isn't bad but its pretty average for a Turkish restaurant. Lamb cutlets were good but the carrot, red cabbage salad that comes with everything is awful. Pitta bread seemed chewy. Good service and the wine was fine.

There's no need to dress up at all for this restaurant which is very relaxed and very busy too. Selling Turkish food cooked directly on the open BBQ, you choose what you want from the menu or from the display and you can watch more being prepared or yours being cooked. We felt it is quite expensive for the amount... More

One of my favourite eating places in Cambridge, because it is so relaxed and friendly. You can eat on your own here, but it is also suitable for larger parties. The food is standard Turkish fare; i have never been let down. Unproblematical!

Thought we would give it a go, we went on a Monday night and was very pleasantly surprised to see it very busy (19.00sih), always reassuring. Went for set meal for two, more than enough food, very well cooked, staff and service excellent, all in all a really good meal and will definitely be going back to try more.

The food was delicious and the restaurant itself had a busy yet relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed several courses which gave us a chance to try a range of the cuisine. The staff were simply average, no complaints although there was definitely the impression of a small lack of care. Will almost certainly visit again.

We visited Efes last night having heard good things for a number of years but never actually getting around to trying it. We absolutely adore Turkish food having spent many summer holidays in the country so I was skeptical as to whether any restaurant over here could live up to my expectations! I was pleasantly surprised though, it seems to... More

Tiny portion, ordered chicken shish which consisted of two small, thinly sliced chicken pieces with rice and salad for £10.95. Rude staff, leaving hungry
