Got in at 10 (advertised close is 11) to be told the 'fire is low' so could only serve main courses. Prawn cocktail (not normally a dish to troubles the 'keeper of the flame' was off!

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

We had the set menu on our first visit. Very impressed loads of starters, the fried liver was really tasty. All the usual Turkish starters, dips, flat bread, prawns all fresh. Service was very good, the meat was delicious, chicken, Beef, Lamb all good really well. Baklava and loads of fruit for dessert. Really good value, we will be back.

Better than average Turkish food at a reasonable price. Excellent pitta bread with the starter. The bread served with the kebab didn't work as well. I would have liked a better choice of wine by the glass - 1 white, 1 red. The red was OK, but I would have preferred a glass of Buzbag.

Based on recommendations we decided to try Efes for dinner. We opted for the set menu as you then have the option of trying a variety of all the dishes and it was only £20 per person. All food was beautiful and well presented, I especially liked the selection of cold starters. What made Efes special was the fantastic service... More

It's good. The menu is traditional Turkish and varied. What differentiates is that the quality is really excellent and the service is really friendly and prices are very reasonable. That combination seems to ensure that this remains one of the most popular restaurants in Cambridge year after year. Simple and effective. Don't forget to try that Turkish wine. It is... More
