“Welcome To The New Ephesus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We visit the Ephesus on a regular basis. The food is as good as it is in Turkey and in some ways even better. Recently Ozgen (the owner) has expanded into the premises next door. It is now a beautiful 60 seat restaurant with the old restaurant now serving as a small bar.
The food can be seen in preparation in a spotless open kitchen and the standard is just as good as before.
On Boxing day we had a party of 5. The starters we selected were Muska Boregi (minced beef and herbs in filo pastry parcels), also available with cheese, spinach and parsley filling (Sigara Boregi) ,Sucuk (Grilled spicy Turkish sausage with mushrooms onions and peppers), Spicy Lamb Meatballs in a tomato sauce with herbs, peppers and mushrooms and Cheesy Peppers (Jalapenos and cheese deep fried in a crisp coating served with salad and cacik). All were delicious.
The main courses were Spicy King Prawns cooked with mushrooms, onions and chilli peppers and served with bulgar wheat, Karisik Izgara (mixed grill of Adana mince kebab, chicken and lamb skewers and lamb cutlet), Chicken saute and Ephesus Steak and Iskender Kebab. All were beautifully prepared and served. The steak was an enormous piece of sirloin with a sauce of garlic, tomatoes mushrooms onions and peppers. There was also a small salad and chips. My son said the Karisik Izgara was superb and my wife loves the chilli king prawn dish which is usually a starter. The saute chicken is served in a hot metal dish again in a similar sauce with bread and bulgar wheat. Iskender Kebab is lamb pieces in a sauce served on pitta bread with yoghurt salad and bulgar wheat.
This is a place not to miss and with very acceptable prices.
Try it. You will not be disappointed.

“Intimate Great Asset To The Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We ate here recently and had not only excellent food but great service. We booked in advance which even since the extension i would advise to ensure you get a nice table. The offer excellent drinks all be it small range they are well stocked. The menu has something for the adventurous and also those who want to have something more simple. All food cooked to a high standard and service was fast. Price is reasonable too. Parking is not the best points but for those who are happy to park on the side street its just 1 minute round the corner on foot. All in all we will return and there is also a nice pub near by to start or finish the evening (Rodley Barge)
