“Delicious Meals”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Efes was one of the best restaurant we have visited in Shanghai. It has an excellent location and very friendly atmosphere. Delicious meals and excellent services. I had grilled lamb steak and it was perfectly cooked. After main course, I would also advise Turkish deserts and coffee. I would recommend Efes Restaurant to everyone who likes Turkish foods. Definitely come back again on my next visit to Shanghai.

“Great Taste of Beautiful Turkish Cuisine”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

'EFES' was a very good and very clean restaurant which we visited almost every day during our one week stay in Shanghai. Food was excellent. Very tasty and succulent. Grilled lamb steaks, chicken schnitzel and great king prawns were our favourites. We can advise to everyone who are a bit choosey what they eat. Service is excellent and very friendly as you can expect from most of turkish restaurants.

“Wonderful Turkish Food.......in Shanghai!!”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

I whole heartedly recommend this Turkish Restaurant [EFES} if you are looking for excellent, honest and well executed Turkish Food.
Good attentive service and value for monies well spent

On a visit in the last few days the meats [esp Beef, Lamb] are succulent and soft on the inside but retains a crunch on the outside, and the accompanying herbed mint sauce [nice smooth finish without being over-powering] imparts a nice lift to the palate. Not expensive and a Very Nice Main Course for Dinner

The variety and selection of dips come on a trolley and always a highlight for me ...........

This is on my regular Restaurants to Visit List in Shanghai and I do visit regularly

This is not a spectator sport as they say.........Visit and Savor for yourself
I suspect you will return for more like I have been

Cheers!!
