I have visited this restaurant twice in the last few years, and the most significant difference that I noticed on my most recent visit was that the portion sizes were significantly smaller than previously. That said, the quality of the food is very good, and the staff are friendly and accommodating. It is somewhat cramped and can get very hot,... More

Taking advice from fellow Trip Advisors and keen for something we hadn't had in a while we headed to Efes. Greeted by friendly staff, we were quickly seated and given time to review the menu. With a great range to pick from we started with cheese boreks and stuffed vine leaves which did not disappoint. Following a great sized starter... More

A real treat; lovely food, good wine and great (extremely fast) service. Lovely atmosphere on a Friday night ; fun to watch them cooking at the grill. We had to go on the early sitting but it was fine. Was amazed how fast it filled up and although there were many families with children somehow it wasn't a problem. Would... More

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...
