About Efes

Efes have brought an authentic taste of Turkey right to the heart of Sunderland City Centre, setting up a traditional Turkish eatery inside the University of Sunderland’s City Campus. It’s already a firm favourite for student lunches and casual dinners, but the enticing aroma of Efes’s open-flame barbecue grill is starting to drift well beyond their Derwent Street digs to lure diners in. Those lured are never disappointed, as Efes is reliable for big smiles, big portions, fresh preparation and beautiful flavours. The slow-cooked lamb stew does more than melt in your mouth, releasing a complexity of tastes that invites you to enjoy it slowly. Nothing is in a hurry here, and Efes is hard to beat for a satisfying, casual dinner around the city centre, especially when your tummy rumbles at mention of things like char-grilled eggplant, stuffed vine leaves, skewered meats, smooth hummus, fresh flatbread and other Turkish delights.

Excellent food and service. The table away ready on time and we were given menu options including gluten free advice for one of our party. Couldn’t have been better.
