A nice little restaurant which is tastefully decorated with faux columns in an Ephesus style. The delicious smell of kebabs cooking on the grill in the middle of the restaurant is mouthwatering. It's not a very big place but has a cosy ambience which is appealing. We had the set menu which consisted of a large mezze starter including; hummus,... More

Very bad customer service. As we went inside the restaurant we was greeted by a very arrogant member of staff did not feel welcomed at all and the environment of the restaurant was not very customer friendly. This place was over rated I would not recommend this place at all. Food portion was terrible and not for the value. The... More

Excellent Quality food, good value for money, great service. Caters for gluten and dairy free. A very cosy and comfortable restaurant would love to try an evening meal there but first visit would recommend it and will definitely make a return visit. located just off of the main street but easy to find and well worth a little walk to...

We were given a warm welcome by attentive staff. The place was busy and buzzing. Half the party had the set menu which was a lovely mix of starter with warm Pitts. Followed by tender juicy grilled meat, fluffy rice and crispy fresh Salad. Would highly recommend this for a beautiful tasty meal

What a visit!! Best kebabs we have ever tasted. We all could not have enough. We also could not resist the lamb chops which were also delicious. Would definitely make a special trip just for Efes!! 😋😋

Just how I remember the food from my trip around Turkey This is a 5 star food and hygiene location. And those 5 stars are well earned. The food is pleasent to eat. Excellent restaurant with very pleasant welcoming staff. The waiting time to be seated was a bit long due to the amount of customers in the restaurant. However,... More

We stopped in here at the weekend following several recommendations. We had no booking but were seated immediately. We have been to a number of Turkish restaurants and have always found the service warm and friendly, and this was no different. The staff were attentive, the service was fast and the food cooked to perfection and overall it was a... More
