First time I visited was with friends that I had met off holiday in Turkey. There were 20+ of us. It was fantastic. The staff were all very friendly. The food was fantastic (like actually being in Turkey) and the service was quick to say the restaurant was packed out. The entertainment was great ending with the disco DJ playing a variety of music but played everything we asked for. 10 out of 10 had a fabulous night so much so that I have booked again to go back in January with my friends for my birthday :-)

We’ve patiently waited all year and here it was again the excitement of the run up to the Festive Season. The “girls” (use the term loosely as we are all in our 40s & 50s these days but nonetheless still young in mind) booked to Efes The Turkish Restaurant on Princess St in Manchester. What a disappointment! When we arrived just before 8pm (our table being booked for 8pm) we had to stand and wait for half an hour until the previous occupants departed. Another hour later & feeling extremely ravenous at this stage, our starters were served. Another hour & half later a luke warm main course was served. And finally at a quarter to midnight frozen profiteroles were presented! At £24.50 each – felt we had been cheated out of our hard earned money!

We went as a group of 37 yesterday to this restaurant as a work Christmas Party. The service was good but the wait between the starter and main course and desert was about 2 hours which meant that members of our party who had to catch the last train home at 11:30 missed out on desert which was a shame.

The food was good, my favourite being the starter which had a large selection of nibbles such as tempura prawns, dolmades, hummus and haloumi. The main course was a large platter of meat to share and it just about fed us but that was with myself being on a diet and only having a small portion and another member of the group having eaten before coming out. If we had wanted to eat more, there would have been a shortage of food. The desert was pleasant, profiteroles and chocolate sauce on top.

The staff were friendly and got everyone involved, the bar wasn't overly expensive either so was good value for money. The entertainment was excellent with a belly dancer and singers, drummers, guitarists and everyone was encouraged to join in.

All in all, I would be happy to come here again next work party.
