When we can, Efes is one of this places me and my work friends enjoy going to. There's enough food to enjoy and number choices are good considering it is a lunch buffet. The meat dishes are always good and the salsa and salads always fresh. The appetisers/finger food are quite a treat. Food: great flavors, choices of meats, pizza... More

Your not going to get the wide range of healthy food for the same price anywhere in Manchester. A firm favourite of ours. Go and you will never look back.

A perfect location with friendly staff. The night we went they had to cancel the regular evening entertainment at the last minute so they offered a cheaper evening buffet price. Loads of really tasty choices at a really good price, ideal of like me you want to try out lots of varieties. Most recommended.

Lots of Turkish dishes to choose from, all great tasting. Everything you could want in any quantity you want. Lots of meat dishes, rice, vegetables, stews, bean dishes, soup, etc; and pizza for the less adventurous. Vegetables, desserts, and exotic little fancies like stuffed vine leaves are also available. This venue is ideal for mixed groups because there are no... More

Had been to Efes previously several years ago for a night out, had a good time decided to order food from Deliveroo from the place as it had a good vegetarian selection. I was disappointed by the food I received, the aubergine salad was so vinegary (even though this wasn't mentioned in the ingredients) I had to throw it away,... More

Went here last night to celebrate a hen party. There were lots of other parties going on and had a great atmosphere. Most importantly the food was delicious and i was in fact so full after the starter I couldn't finish the main. I can fully understand why the dessert is profiteroles on the set menu: anything stodgier just wouldn't... More

They have decent food and the service is good. It is fresh but the hot plates need to be better, it gets cold quite quickly.

Went mid week having never been before. The buffet was huge with loads of choice. I tried most things as in a greedy fella. Everything was great apart from some of the Italian food which had clearly been there for a while. Everything else was lovely. Two buffets and a bottle of wine for around £30. Great value. If you...
