Consistently excellent Turkish food

I have been here several time recently, with friends and colleagues. The food has consistently been excellent, and presented with very good, courteous service, by the knowledgeable waiters. What's more, the food always seems very healthy too. Highly recommended!

Basic restaurant surroundings, no thrills but just plain healthy fresh food. We go back time after time.

Dinner for four people - the menu has a good range of choice, and the dishes are cooked extremely well; a real authentic taste of Turkish cuisine. Staff were very friendly, and the restaurant has a very welcoming feel.

Still one of the most reliable restaurants in Cambridge. A bit of post Xmas shopping needed a snack so a few starters at Efes seemed ideal. We were greeted in their normal friendly way ! Cold beer with 4 great starters between the 2 of us was a perfect lunchtime meal. You do have to try the liver starter as... More

Every time I eat here I remember how much I love it. I would recommend the set menu as it gives you a great selection of food, do however make sure that you are hungry! The staff are all very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu too. I have been here a number of times and will also be taking... More

We had planned to eat in the nearby Indian restaurant which, upon arrival, was deserted wheras Efes appeared pleasantly busy which sealed the deal for us. We shared 2 mixed platters between 2 adults and 2 children which proved ideal. The starters were mostly run of the mill and I suspect some were bought in rather than made from scratch,... More

I'm half Turkish and have spent half my life in Cyprus, the food here is just as good and defiantly worth it as it is in Cyprus/turkey! If you haven't tried it yet then you should soon! Best one in Cambridge.

The food was excellent: simple, grilled, good quality meats, salad and meze; we recommend the set meal, which was generous and included numerous dishes. The restaurant was busy despite it being mid-week, but, nonetheless, the service was efficient and the waiters were friendly and engaged.

We visited efes because we love meditereanean food. We were very disappointed. The food was quite tasteless, the ckicken our daughter coose was coverd with two different sauces. Very meditereanean!
