Good Food

We had just arrived on New Year's Day after three days on the road and were very tired and hungry. Efes Restaurant was nearby, and it was a godsend. The waitress was efficient getting my husband's wine and my iced tea shortly after we were seated. In fact, she moved us to a more stable table in a... read more

We were seated immediately. The restaurant Vegas not full because of the bad weather but this place is a gem. The food is Turkish and the owner is the server. She is very honest. She told us the fish was frozen not fresh which we appreciated. We had lentil soup which was delicious. I has lamb stew with bulgar. My... More

This was our 2nd, and last time dining at this restaurant. The food is good, and that is why we came back, but the management is very unprofessional. Our server (the same woman both times.... who I think may be an owner...) came and took our order where we were seated outside. After a long while, she came and took... More

Can't rate the food since the last two times I went - with family - we left when even water wasn't brought to the table after 10 minutes of waiting.

Went to this gem with my family a few nights ago. The food was fresh and so well prepared. Sakina, the owner was warm, and so welcoming. Efes offers a diverse Turkish menu including fresh whole fish, meats and vegetarian options. Can't say enough good things about this place. On a scale of 1-10 it's a 12.

We had a delicious meal and I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone. You do not have to be familiar with Turkish food. The restaurant serves authentic Middle Eastern/Mediterranean food that was incredibly flavorful. There is something for everyone on the menu. I recommend the St Peters fish which was grilled with a delicious garlic sauce, Shrimp Kebob and... More

First time I tried this restaurant. The decor was very nice. They did have alot of fish dishes on the menu, but most of them were for the whole fish. That limited my choice to Dorado (which I never tried) & it came with bulgar (which I also never tried) The dinners come with choice of soup or salad. My... More

We've been going here for years and never disappointed. So many options to choose from, the menu can please anyone - lamb, chicken, beef. There is also seafood dishes. Everything from appetizers to desserts always excellent. I would highly recommend this to locals and visitors.

Only yesterday had a colleague mentioned this place to me. Normally Turkish wouldn't be on my radar...however I said I had to bring home some soup which is why I originally went. So I went bold and got the Spinach Pizza with egg and cheese...it was outstanding and so was the Lentil Soup. I was actually sent back and tonight... More
