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.

“Christmas menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We ate their Christmas menu and it was delicious.
The manager was very friendly and we were happy that we chose this restaurant and not another one.
The wine was fantastic and we got a free glas of champagne and they offered us a special turkish drink.
It is a little bit difficult to find the rrstaurant but it was worth it.
Greetings from Lux.

“Delicious Meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Efes was one of the best restaurant we have visited in Shanghai. It has an excellent location and very friendly atmosphere. Delicious meals and excellent services. I had grilled lamb steak and it was perfectly cooked. After main course, I would also advise Turkish deserts and coffee. I would recommend Efes Restaurant to everyone who likes Turkish foods. Definitely come back again on my next visit to Shanghai.

“Great Taste of Beautiful Turkish Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

'EFES' was a very good and very clean restaurant which we visited almost every day during our one week stay in Shanghai. Food was excellent. Very tasty and succulent. Grilled lamb steaks, chicken schnitzel and great king prawns were our favourites. We can advise to everyone who are a bit choosey what they eat. Service is excellent and very friendly as you can expect from most of turkish restaurants.
