My son and I ate here on a busy Monday night. Surprisingly busy for a Monday but testimony to it his restaurant's deserved popularity. We probably should have booked but we were fitted in without fuss. Great authentic Turkish food, good fast and friendly service and a real buzz about the place. The set menu deal is great value but... More

Ate here on a Monday evening with a work group and lovely to have such a great atmosphere with a full restaurant on a Monday. Slightly disappointed with the meze starter for the group which was just hummus, taramasalata, tzatziki , pitta bread and then a plate of liver and 2 feta parcels. We all chose separate main courses and... More

We have eaten in Efes a number of times when visiting Cambridge. The food has allways been excellent and represents very good value for money. On this occasion, there were 8 of us so we opted for the £20 a head three course meal, comprising a meze of cold starters (vine leaves, hummus etc) together with some hot starters and... More

Having never eaten at a Turkish restaurant before, it was pleasantly surprising to be blown away by how truly authentic and delicious the food was at Efes. We went for the set menu and could not fault anything. For just over £20, we received a cold and hot meze, a well-cooked selection of meats for a mixed kebab, a baclava... More

We were lucky enough to sneak in on a busy Saturday night and it proved a delightful surprise. Lovely warm atmosphere, charming staff, delicious food and great value. Go- now!

We were recommended this restaurant by the landlord of our village pub who knows a thing or two about good food so on a trip to Cambridge with relatives we decided to try. We went in the early evening on a Monday and had the restaurant to ourselves for most of the meal. Turkish food is pretty much a carnivore’s... More

We went there few times now and it's a very good restaurant. The service is fast and all the waiters are really nice. The meat is amazing, perfectly cooked and very tasty. I love a baklava and turkish coffee to finish the meal. Really recommend the place.

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

Decided on whim to visit Efes again, though have been there a number of times in previous years. despite not booking they just managed to find us a table though many who came after us were turned away. This shows the polarity of this cambridge establishment. Tasty starters, barbequed kebabs on charcoal grill in front of your very eyes and... More
