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.

Wonderful meal. The service was excellent, friendly and helpful. The food, delicious. After traveling in Shanghai for 3 weeks, this was the perfect meal to end my trip before heading back to the states. If you're a foreigner looking for a break from the authentic Chinese food, come here. You wont be disappointed.

“Always satisfied”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

For our son's 14 birthday he chose Efes last week. Efes has become our families favorite restaurant and is always a great place to take guests as we get many! Their newest dish of whipped eggplant and shredded lamb with oregano sprinkled on top is delish. We are always happy with the service and even had the chef get me a small take away bowl of my favorite spices to take home to cook with. We are truly fans!
