I've been here several times and had decent food. This review is about my most recent experience, which was not good. We were a party of 5 adults and 1 5-month old baby. The food came SUUUUPPPPPEEEERRR slow and the server didn't come back to check until we were more than 1/2 way finished. The food was mostly cold, like... More

While the Lamb shish was pretty good from a flavor standpoint, it was a bit over cooked and tough. The calamari appetizer dish on the other hand is pretty bland on the palate.

They serve unusual and delicious food. The servings are a good size and the service was very good. I will definitely go back...in fact I have invited another friend to go there next week. There is a bakery/coffee house just a few doors away that is linked to this restaurant and it is definitely worth a visit after your meal.

Just had lunch this week on a bright sunny day. I continue to search for authentic Turkish cuisine after a trip last year to Istanbul. Ephesus is a reasonably good option to satisfy my yearnings. It's a family business - they also appear to own the bakery cafe just down the street. I had a chicken shish wrap, served with... More

Great mediterranean dinner and turkish tea at an unexpected decent price in the heart of Silicon Valley. The service was great and the atmosphere smelled to high tech. I'll visit again with my friends. Ser

Good place to have Mediterranean food. Service is fast and baklavas are delicious. Good veggie options for vegetarians.

Food is reasonably priced. Service is very helpful and receptive. I had good gyro meat but not the best I have had. The veggie wrap and chicken shish kabob that the other members of my dinner party had were considered good but not great either. The one thing I was unhappy about was tzatziki sauce was NOT included with the... More

Had Borek and lahmacun for appetizers, the lahmacun was VG. Iskender was tasty and ciger tava (liver) could have been just a little more crisper. Baklava was very very good and is great with Turkish tea . 3 1/2 stars it deserves
