Really enjoyed my romantic meal here with my husband. The staff were so polite and attentive, probably the best I've ever met in a restaurant! I really recommend the Baklava and the mixed cold mezze, it was so nice and a great alternative to the restaurant I used to go to, will be back again in the future.

Came here with a group of friends over the weekend and had a lovely time. The staff were really attentive and provided quick service and the rose wine was really enjoyable for a very reasonable cost. The pitta and hummus that we had to start was tastey and the bread was really warm which is a great touch. However I... More

I really enjoyed my meal here with my husband, I'd been looking for a nice Turkish restaurant in Cambridge for a while since my favourite one closed. The baklava was absolutely wonderful, raki was great, very impressed with the good, our waiter was lovely to talk to and seemed genuinely pleased that we tried and enjoyed everything. I'll definitely be... More

We visited for lunch and it was rather disconcerting to arrive to an empty restaurant. The restaurant itself is nice with full view of the grill etc and we were warmly welcomed. We ordered the meze for two. It was OK, plenty of pitta bread ( often you don't get enough) and a good mix of things go try such... More

A little restaurant (a booking is a must) just of the city centre serving Meditteranean food! The smell of the barbecue in there is simply amazing and their kebab with yogurt sauce is a must-try! I keep meaning to go back to try also their vegetarian menu (some great looking cheese pies) as everytime the smell makes go straight for... More

Efes is a little bit out of the town centre but well worth the effort. Great Turkish food at really good prices. Portions are generous and well presented. Ambience is very cosy- you can get a bit too warm if seated near the cooking area! One of our favourite places to eat in Cambridge.

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

A really lovely dinner experience, great service, but you absolutely must try their hummus....it was absolutely to die for. Great atmosphere for a catch up with a good friend.

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...
