Love this place. My family loves this place as well. The food is always amazing. Glad that they expanded the restaurant, however they need better (probably more) waiters. I have to ask for a lot of things such as refilling glasses for water. Food takes a while to come because it's crowded so be sure to reserve a table. The... More

I always loved Efes food and service, but since they finished the dining room upstairs, it is even better. Same great food, even though it seems they tweak things each time...for the better. if you like good Mediterranean Food, and you are in the New Brunswick area, Efe's is the place

I first visited EFES in Princeton and liked it so much. And then came to know that it is also there in New Brunswick. I took my family couple of times for dinner and everyone loves the Falafel and Chicken/lamb Adana as well as Yogurt Adana. Will definitely keep visiting. Although finding a parking near by is little tricky, but... More

First time here at their dining room to palate a genuine Mediterranean feast of colors, smells and tastes. Courteous staff. Pleasant atmosphere. Is B.Y.O.

This is a nice little gem right near the New Brunswick train station in t he heart of the Rutgers campus. We loved the second floor location overlooking the street corner, really gives it a NY City vibe, and the food, OMG it was amazing. We have been to many Mediterranean restaurants and this was one of the top. I... More

Awesome food, awesome atmosphere, friendly staff. Shah was our waiter. He was very friendly and had us laughing the whole time. I was there with my sister and our mom. Definitely a great place for date night, family night, or a night out with friends. I believe it is BYOB.

From our last visit this place has changed so much. We really enjoyed our meal here. We were invited by our family and with reluctance we went. We are so glad we did. They have completely redone the second floor and the ambiance is very nice. Nice private room also on the side for large families or meetings. The servers... More

The food was tasy. The service was pleaseant, however the ambience was average. There is a flight of stairs to the dining area which made it difficult for one of our group.
