“yum yum yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

quality food, freshly made and very very tasty!

have been here a couple of times and enjoyed the beef and chicken doners - both delicious with quality ingredients. free dessert thrown in on our second visit.
my wife had the lamb which was one of the tastiest morsels of food i have ever had the privilege to consume.
go there and enjoy a delicious and nutritious taste sensation.

“Lamb kebab heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

If I were a lamb, ready to give my life to a good cause, I would sacrifice myself to become lamb kebabs at Efes. The chicken is equally amazing, and its hard to resist the lure of a big meat mound on a stick, but the lamb is stupid good.

“Healthy Turkish fast food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I decided to try this out for lunch as it was near my office. The first thing that struck me was the decor, nice clean modern classic and no plasticy look. I decided to try the Falafel wrap with all the toppings. Everything was made fresh. Even the salad. Whilst I waited, I talked to the friendlyTurkish staff so I knew immediately I was getting the real deal and I was not dissappointed. The portions were generous and very tasty. I took the loyalty card as I expect to be back often.

“Authentic Turkish cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We were looking for a quick sit down meal before catching a movie in Victoria, and we stumbled on Efes. It is a nice family operated sit-down or takeout restaurant with lots of posters of Turkey's wonders (not the cliche ones of Istanbul or Cappadocia).

The food was plentiful, tasty, and very good value compared to some of the nearby pan-asian restaurants. Common in and you might learn a little Turkish!

This was welcome break from the standard fare you might find in Vancouver.
