If you like buffet you'll like efes, I've been coming here over 2 years and I always enjoy the starters and the soup. I introduced the restaurant to my friends and they loved it too. There's always different soup on and the taste is excellent with warm bread. They have started a stamp card where u collect 10 stamps and... More

Let me start by stating that I've been hanging out at this place for almost a year, so I have quite an experience on the matter. I have lunch and dinner at this restaurant almost daily, and as you may have assumed there must be a good reason why I've done this for such a long time. I study in... More

We work right next to Efes restaurant have have been eating lunch in this place quite often (far too often sometimes) for the past year. We don't have much time to sit so we always order a take away box for £4. Once the box paid for, we just help ourselves at the bar. Efes is not in a convenient... More

Was quite a large dining area, didn't realise it was a buffet and normally I avoid these as I've found most of them are bland slop.... Great range of food here though, from Italian to Middle Eastern. Tried the spinach cannelloni which was yum, also... More

I was really impressed with amount of healthy options. Normally all you can eat buffet, serve a feast of fatty food. The food is a mixture of Greek, Turkish, Spanish,and Italian. So expect from pizza and meatballs to stuffed vine leaves and moussaka. Myself wife and two children had a lovely meal on Tuesday 30 Sept 2014 there and will... More
