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

This is one of the best Turkish restaurants in UK, the food is not commercial, is homemade and origibal tasting. Their Lamb chops are heavenly, marinated, juicy and full of taste. I also love their Obergein salad and cold spread. The quality and the taste of their food is amazingly good. Definitely one restaurant in Cambridge you must visit. Don't... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch. The service was good, food excellent and very reasonably priced. This restaurant is a little bit away from the main shopping area but well worth finding.

An excellent restaurant with a good variety of Turkish Cuisine dishes. It can be quite full most of the times, which is understandable as it is a good choice for having a great meal for reasonable prices. Therefore I suggest making reservation in advance.

Really enjoyed my first meal at Efes. I chose a lamb kebab - the meat was really well cooked and tender and the food was colourful and fresh tasting. I particularly enjoyed the spicy homemade sauce it came with. If you are looking for unpretentious, friendly service and well cooked food this place is highly recommended.
