We came with high expectations but was let down with Luke warm food, impersonal service and a lack of any atmosphere. Food was nothing special! Expensive for what we got, don't understand previous ratings!

I live abroad and travel a lot. Since I was born in Turkey everywhere I go look for a Turkish food. Efes is one of my favourite place in the world outside Turkey. Clean, great atmosphere, good location most of all great food.

The soul of the Ottoman Cuisine, smack dab in the heart of Pudong and now authentic recipes of Turkish cuisine is available a few door down from some of the tallest buildings in the world, in Lujiazui at Efes -the only and truly genuine Turkish Restaurant in Pudong. Efes serves up modern twists on Turkish classics and that healthy Mediterranean cuisine doctors are always going on about. Try the kebabs, chargrilled over real charcoal for extra smoky flavor. And don't forget a bottle of raki, the anise-flavored liquor and Efes beer that will have you singing "Take me back to Istanbul" in no time.
Efes stranded between Lujiazui and Century Avenue and there are two metro stations nearby (line 9's Shangcheng Lu and line 2's Dongchang Lu) and diners who do make the trip will find an upmarket restaurant serving modern takes on Ottoman classics,
Dine in our elegant yet comfortable dining room, or enjoy your meal outside, at a very huge garden facing to a pool which is rare chance in Lujiazui and amid the bustling streets of downtown Shanghai.
