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. Don't bother with having kebab boxes from poor quality shops and come here to eat "Beyti... More

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.

There is a limited amount of parking available outside the restaurant but be warned its 50p for 10 minutes until 6:30! The inside of Efes is very welcoming - especially the open grill - and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. My starter of deep fried liver was delicious and perfectly cooked and my daughter was even tempted to... More

My wife had the vegetarian dish and I had the chicken and meat yogurt dish, both were excellent, the meat was so tender and very delicious. The service was also good. Recommend.

We visited for a special occasion (graduation) on Saturday night as it is my daughter's favourite restaurant. As always, we had a great experience. The food is freshly prepared, it really is delicious, staff is friendly, helpful and lovely, and there's a great choice of dishes on the menu. All the kebabs are excellent, but my favourite dishes are the... More
