One of my favorites since opening day!

I cannot remember when Efes opened in New Brunswick, but we were lucky enough to discover it early on. Since they've been in this location, I've watched their business grow, and the actual restaurant, as well. They now have a lovely space located on the second floor, and a private dining area for... read more

From our last visit this place has changed so much. We really enjoyed our meal here. We were invited by our family and with reluctance we went. We are so glad we did. They have completely redone the second floor and the ambiance is very nice. Nice private room also on the side for large families or meetings. The servers... More

The food was tasy. The service was pleaseant, however the ambience was average. There is a flight of stairs to the dining area which made it difficult for one of our group.

We love this place because it is BYOB (which saves a lot on price when you bring your own wine bottle) and the food is delicious. The lamb and chicken kabobs meals are always large on size, tender and sooooo tasty! When ever we have out-of-town guests we definitely go here! The pricing is very reasonable and the menu has...

It is centrally located in downtown New Brunswick. It has nice air conditioned seating area. We had fish, doner with yogurt , ezme and shepherd's salad. Besides doner food was pretty good. The food at their Princeton location is better.

I love this place. Food is very good (it can be better) and service is ok. I come here alone, wouldn't bring anyone as the service is very slow. Like the title says, this place has the best baklava you will EVER taste. This comes from trying out at least 10-20 different places. Everyone always raves about it.

I was pleasantly surprised with the expansion they made. The upstairs sinking area is very nice, comfortable and large. The food is consistently good and so is the service. Will def be back again and again.

We were concerned when we walked into the downstairs take out area with a few plastic tables, but were directed upstairs to the lovely dining room by the affable young woman at the counter. Sierra our server was knowledgeable and very helpful in what and how much to order. The food was amazing. The combination appetizer platter tasted as delicious... More

Efes is well located by the Rutgers campus. Our group of 4 ate in the upstairs dining room just after lunch time. By then they were completely out of lamb. For appetizers the stuffed grape leaves and baba ganush were very good with plentiful portions. Two orders of each more than satisfied the four of us. For the main course... More

Visited Efes for the first time with a group of lady friends. It was a very chilly night, and we were seated by the windows. I had to keep my coat on the whole time, but that is my only complaint. The service was friendly and efficient. The server was happy to answer our questions about the unfamiliar menu items.... More
