Efes serves up modern twists on Turkish classics and that healthy Mediterranean cuisine doctors are always going on about. Try the kebabs, chargrilled over real charcoal for extra smoky flavor. And don't forget a bottle of raki, the anise-flavored liquor and Efes beer that will have you singing "Take me back to Istanbul" in no time. Efes stranded between Lujiazui and Century Avenue and there are two metro stations nearby (line 9's Shangcheng Lu and line 2's Dongchang Lu) and diners who do make the trip will find an upmarket restaurant serving modern takes on Ottoman classics, Dine in our elegant yet comfortable dining room, or enjoy your meal outside, at a very huge garden facing to a pool which is rare chance in Lujiazui and amid the bustling streets of downtown Shanghai.

“Very nice Turkish restaurant in Pudong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

As a couple living in Puxi side, we don't usually prefer restaurants in Pudong side. However, this has changed after the opening of Efes Restaurant. Honestly, we are still not "regulars", but we try to come here as much as possible, either by ourselves or with our friends.
We like the food and the ambiance here. "Kuzu Sırtı" is our current favorite dish.
By the way, you can also come here to experience a Turkish breakfast. Don't forget to call and book in advance..

“LACMACUN & ROCK'N ROLL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I've been to this restaurant last month. It's surprisingly better than Turkish restaurants in Germany. Especially their LAHMACUN (TURKISH PIZZA) rocks!

The crew is friendly and service minded.

“Good service and yummy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Been there last Saturday. Food is good, service efficient and attentive. The owner or chef is in there and the manager is moving around tables with discretion. Well done. We'll be back.
Ambience is simple, but clean and neat.

“great taste & excellent service hidden in simplicity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

The Efes is a great place to taste different mediterrannean dishes, They have a rich menu created by master chiefs. You will see many random food on the menu however you will have a better taste than many Turkish Restaurants just as original in Turkey. You will be pleased by the atmosphere of the restaurant as well as attention of the staff with similing faces. you definetly must drop my!
