I have been to Efes Bistro many times with my family, and I have never been disappointed. (It is unfair to pass judgment based on one bad experience.) The food is always prepared fresh and on premises!! My favorite dishes are the Atlantic salmon and any of the vegetarian entrees. The restaurant has a cozy atmosphere with several booths, each...

We tried this place for the first time. It is conveniently located in a shopping mall off Glades near Lyons. The place only had a few customers so we almost had it to ourselves. The ambiance was pleasant, with genuine Turkish decor, private booths and large tables, nicely decorated. The staff was attentive and Turkish. We orders the octopus, mixed... More

We went to give this place a try. The place was empty , just our table. I got the feeling I went to the owners home not to a restaurant. They had a little girl who was crying constantly . We tried the lamb kebab, and the eggplant. The meat was tough and chewy, the eggplant was good. The bulgur... More

We went on a Saturday evening; the place was half-full. The waiters were very polite and clarified some of the items on the menu. The complimentary pita bread was never served to us, though the waiter said "your pita bread is coming right up" after he had brought the drinks. Some of the items that we tried like the St.... More

Hidden in the middle of a strip shopping center in western Boca Raton is an exquisite Turkish restaurant with a small sign and a name the manager explains is a nickname for ancient city in Turkey. The food is great, the service kind. On a nice day you can eat outside. I usually get a lamb dish, my wife goes... More

Excellent Turkish food! Each time I am in Florida, I go to Efes and try the next dish on the menu. I have never been disappointed. Save room for the desserts.

Above average Middle Eastern cuisine. Nice selection of fish. No Turkish beer or wine although they were listed. Nice room, friendly staff.

I went to Efe's craving a few dishes I'd eaten in Turkey years before, and was not disappointed. There were four of us, and we decided to share entrées so we could sample the appetizers. The cold appetizer platter was generous and tasty and they had a delicious Malbec (?) red wine by the glass. The grilled meatballs, spiked with... More

We've been here many times in the past . Food is always good. We went here last week for dinner. We ere surprised to see that the restaurant was empty except for our table. Several 'reserved' signs were on all the tables in front however no one came in during the two hours we were there. I got the lamb... More
