As the most established Turkish Taverna in Manchester, Efes offers tremendous value for money.The atmosphere in Efes Taverna is second to none on our weekend evenings! We offer everything for a full night out all under one roof. Commence your evening with a delicious feast of authentic Mediterranean dishes as you take in the live music from our very own resident musicians. Then immerse yourself in traditional Turkish dancing, performed by our own waiters and a captivating belly dancing act. You can sit back and absorb the sights, sounds and atmosphere, or if that’s not your style, feel free to get up and join in. We actively encourage audience participation here at Efes! As the Metiderranean music fade out the disco beat starts around midnight until 2.00am. Efes Taverna is an ideal place for birthdays, hen-nights or any other celebration you care to mention with a capacity of 130 people. Once you reserve a table it is yours for the evening. We are licensed until 2.00am.Sunday through to Friday afternoon we offer an all you can eat Mediterranean buffet. 12pm - 10pm (Friday 5pm).

My father is a chef. So he can be a bit of a critic on food. If he said that he wants to come back to a certain restaurant that means the food is brilliant and he did for Efes many times. Excellent food quailty, brilliant guest service and great value for money.

The music seemed a strange choice (full album of the Beatles) but it was nice to hear them! The food was really good, and the variety encouraged my children to try different things they hadn't had before. There was plenty of choice but not so much that it was overwhelming, and all the food was fresh and the staff were... More

Visited this place midweek for dinner and was not particularly impressed with the food quality. If you want quantity then this place has a good selection and large plates so you can stuff yourself silly. If you just want to eat a sensible amount of food then find somewhere else with better quality.

We went for the Sunday lunch buffet. There was probably too much choice and too tempting! Lots of veggie choice which was great for me. We went with a Living Social voucher but it isn't expensive any way. I can't list the choices as far too many but the piazzas, broccoli bake the spinach pastries were delicious. Plenty of different... More
