Efes is everything you want from a Turkish restaurant. My husband often travels to Turkey for work and rates this place just as good as some of the best in Istanbul. This was our third visit and already booked the fourth visit keep doing what you are doing as it is awesome thank you.

First time at the new efes town, superb all round! 10/10 Same menu as the other restaurant, only thing being a vegetarian you could put a vegetarian grill on the menu or a halloumi kebab just for some more variety but the guvec / salad is sublime :)

Staff were observant, hard working & caring. Saw us on a smallish table, then offered us a larger. Always with a smile and showing interest in individuals and groups. Food was superb, tasty and warm, we had the platter for two, excellent. Wine we found reasonably priced. Beautiful restaurant with clear view of the kitchens. Toilets were modern and looked extremely clean, especially considering its a busy, large restaurant.

Enjoyed it from the moment we stepped into the restaurant! Everything was spot on…the decor, the food, the service and value for money! My only very slight complaint, and it is minuscule, was the Turkish coffee….far too strong!! I lived in the Eastern Mediterranean for nearly 30 years, so I’m talking from experience!! Get that right and Efes will be the real deal!!

It was a wet, blustery Monday lunchtime in February, so it was good to see many other diners had braved the gloom. Food was good and tasty. My only criticism was that the rice pudding was very, very cold and I had expected warm! Otherwise all good.

Great food, from a wide menu. The service was excellent and the restaurant looks lovely. However, the tables are very close together so we had to squeeze into our seats by the window. Also, it was very noisy so people, like me, with a hearing impairment find it very difficult to take part in conversations around the table. Just a few less tables (I appreciate that this could impact on takings) and a bit more sound-absorbing material around the restaurant would make all the difference. Nevertheless, a very welcome addition to the town centre.

Good food fresh and well prepared. Excellent service efficient and non intrusive. Unfortunately the ambience was lacking. It was like a busy canteen and we had to really raise our voices to talk to each other across the table. For us we prefer the more intimate and softer environment at Effes in Clifton road and that is where we will go back to in the future. The new one is well located and good for larger groups.

Great food,staff were a bit under pressure as it was so busy,so the service was a bit slow however they were very friendly…the new restaurant is a bit canteeny for our liking,very noisy,struggled to have a conversation,but as always the food was exceptional,I think we will stick to the smaller restaurant in Clifton Road to be able to have a relaxing meal
