Located down King Street, slightly off the beaten track. We popped in ad hoc with a party of 3. There's an open grill and real authentic Turkish feel. Food was delicious - we had the shish kebabs and chicken. Fast, friendly and delicious. Will definitely be back, and for all 3 courses

The service from the minute we entered was excellent. The food and breads came quickly and the food was superbly presented and tasted just as good. The waiter was very attentive and funny.

When we entered the staff welcomed us and quickly gave us a table. They were very friendly. The first thing I like was the traditional table cloths and tea cups. They were hand made and had different colors. The prices were good specially the set menus were a good deal. We had a full meal with a lot of different... More

My son-in-law was in this restaurant two nights ago. I understood he wanted to order a Baclava. He asked if it had peanuts in. He was told no. That night he was severely ill. I am reporting this because this place needs to be careful, as a peanut allergy is potentially lethal. Sally

The service is excellent and the food is very tasty. There just isn't much choice if you don't eat meat. There are plenty of mains offered, but all except two are meaty mains. One of the others is a fish dish, and the other is a vegetarian dish. The vegetarian dish is really just a selection of some of the... More

Best service and food in Cambridge! Booked a table over the phone with ease, pre ordered the champagne and everything was set up beautifully on our arrival. We explained it was our anniversary and we received complimentary fruit for dessert. So traditional, clean and friendly. You see all the food cooked in front of you, and the smell the second...

We returned to Efes for a lunch whilst on a shopping trip to Cambridge. This is one of our favourite restaurants and never lets us done. On this visit we enjoyed the Cacik and Liver for starters, followed by Lamb dishes for mains. All the food was very tasty was served quickly and offers good value. For a small restaurant... More
