Lovely food, second visit. Would come back. Arrived 10:30pm and kitchen closed soon after - still very friendly service felt a little rushed but people want to go home on a Friday night too. Good wholesome food.

We had a fantastic meal here last night to celebrate my fiancée's birthday. We had a table booked for 18 people and the service was impeccable. They made the entire experience so memorable and made sure everyone had everything they wanted. As ever the food did us proud, and family and friends not from the local area all raved about... More

The menu of standard Turkish fare was tasty, well presented and good value but the overall restaurant experience was fairly average and showed signs of a well established place that had lost its Mojo. The decor is tired and gives it a very1990s Turkish feel rather than being vaguely contemporary. The staff were going through the motions but were not... More

We spotted Efe's Turkish restaurant early evening and popped in on the off-chance they could feed us quickly. We were not disappointed - service was friendly and excellent. Food was interesting, and well flavoured. My son enjoyed watching the kebabs being barbecued freshly for us and was certainly up for trying dishes outside his normal experience. We even splashed out... More

I returned to this restaurant for the first time in perhaps 5 or more years, and found the food as delicious as ever! We both had the vegetarian platter, which was a good size and had a good variety of different flavours and textures. We ordered some hummus and pitta bread on the side to add a little extra substance.... More

We have been going regularly to this restaurant for almost 4 years. Very frequently (at least once per week in the last year) because of the very good food and also very good relationship between quality and price. The quality of the service has been always good but - unexpectedly - decreased over time: the more often we went, the... More

Cambridge is a good meeting place for a friend and me as it is about midway between our two homes. We both spend a lot of time in the Turkish part of Cyprus and decided today to try this restaurant. We were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful and when we explained we would both have to cook... More

Had delicious fresh, barbequed-in-front-of you lean and tender lamb kebabs. They were helpful with gluten free and substituted a heap of turkish salad for the rice (which has wheat noodles in it). Staff were very smiley and it had a bustling and relaxed atmosphere. Yum, I'd like to go back and eat more (we wished we'd ordered the menu rather... More

Pleasant décor and atmosphere. Food is prepared right in the dining area, which is interesting to watch and gives some assurance that the dishes are freshly made. For starters, we ordered the vine leaves and fried aubergine. The main courses were moussaka and kebab. For wine, we tried their recommendation of retsina. Baklava for dessert. Everything was prepared and served... More
