“Dinner - Dec 24th, 2013”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

Went for a dinner witg some friends. We didnt have a reservation, but were accommodated immediately by v courteous staff.

The food itself was okay. Also, there could have been more vegetarian options and soups.

Reasonably priced. Remained full the entire time we were there. Their service was v fast and efficient!

“Excellent change”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

From the chains. Good tasty turkish foods and flavours. Great for proper kebabs (like you would get in Istanbul or even Bodrum) if you want to give in to carnivorous desire for meat. I especially love the smokey babaganoush and tabbouleh in their sharing platter - but the kebabs are the main dish in this place. The Patlican with aubergine is my choice.

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

Efes is just off the centre of Cambridge and as a result feels more like a local rather than a tourist restaurant.

The range of traditional Turkish food is fully catered for and there is an excellent set meal at a reasonable price. If I have a grumble it is that the menu has not changed in years. That said the food is well cooked and with good portions, without being large. There is a reasonable range of good wines, mostly Turkish, which are well priced.

For me though the staff make Efes. Most have been there for years and a friendly and helpful.

Reservations are usually required. A minor gripe is when they have two sittings some weekend evenings.

Overall highly recommended.
