Efes used to be a very good Turkish restaurant. I used to take my VIP guests to Efes. The quality of service deteriorated in the last few years and I stopped going to this restaurant. I had a stop there early on a Friday evening last week. They still have the same menu but it just appeared to me pretty... More

Food always excellent. We go there most weeks for a business meeting. Because of the soft furnishings, it is quiet so I can hear my colleagues clearly.

First experience in a proper Turkish restaurant. I came with my friends and we shared a couple of starters: falafel and special meze. I loved the very tasty sauces to be tried with their tender bread, included in the special meze. It was a very good choice. Then I tried the mixed kebab: different type of meats in a kebab... More

A very friendly environment. Typical Turkish food prepared for European taste. Staff very polite and friendly. Decoration not the best but does it really matter when the food is good?!

I will be honest, I wanted to reserve a table at a Middle Eastern restaurant that is higher on the list on the Cambridge TripAdvisor, but fortunately, for Efes, the other place was holding a private function so I could not go here. My wife and I had actually considered this place first, so I guest fate meant that I... More

Went for a birthday meal with some friends. It appears unassuming, but the food at Efes is absolutely great. The prices are reasonable, and the house wine very drinkable! Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who fancies some Mediterranean cuisine.

I had unreasonably high expectations going here, so will try to taper my dissapointment. The food was nice; not mind blowing, but tasty. The portions were generous. The atmosphere and decor are unremarkable. Bits of memorabilia here and there but not a defined style or well thought decoration by any means. The price was reasonable. It was a pleasant evening...

this is the second time we have been here for lunch and it was just as delicious this time. The service is impeccable and the food comes out quick. I ordered the spicy kofte kebab which was two kebabs and some rice and you get a side salad too. My other half had the moussaka. The serving sizes were just... More
