Quite a find during a visit to Manchester. All you can eat of a wonderful selection of good food for £7.50 a head. We doubled the bill witha bottle of average wine so stick to the water!

My favourite dishes from the buffet menu are: bbq lamb ribs, the chicken liver, russian salad and spinach & feta canelloni. We visited at Sunday lunchtime and the food choice was very good. If you...

Visited Efes once a week when in Manchester, unlike other buffets all the food is fresh and hot. Efes is a smaller concern so the food is turned over much quicker. The food is also a very high standard... gets very busy with students !!

We have been comming to Efes regularly for quite some time at lunch time. This is a very relaxed venue and a great place for a buffet lunch. The food choice is always a good mix with a number of items rotated on and off menu, but I am always happy to see vine leaves sat there. Choices are sometimes... More

Efes has a big variety of Turkish, Italian and Greek food. It's cheaper than all the other open buffets in the town. And if you are a student you can get a special discount.
