More about Efes Meze, London

Long established in London’s Greenwich, Efes Meze is privileged to have long relationships with reliable suppliers keeping their kitchen stocked with fresh and organic produce, contributing to the renown attached to their mouth-watering menu of Turkish and Mediterranean delicacies. As is often the case with Turkish, Lebanese, and Middle Eastern restaurants, the quality of their sharing platters is a good gauge of the general standard when it comes to the rest of the menu. Well, this Trafalgar Road institution has made delectable meze a focus of its hospitality for the past 15 years, and a couple of these hot or cold numbers, paired with a glass of Efes beer, perhaps, a fine wine or a glass of fiery raki, ensure that Efes Meze ranks high in the city’s choices for Turkish fine dining.

Without a doubt, the focus of Efes Meze’s dining experience, if you put its famous meze to one side for a moment, is the presence of a traditional open charcoal grill in the restaurant. Here, you can watch Efes’ chefs expertly grill boldly marinated, spiced and flavoured meats to perfection. The Efes Meze special mixed grill is good for the indecisive, while rarities like the regional Inegol kofte to tempt those who think they’ve exhausted the possibilities when it comes to dining Turkish style in London. Another feature of Efes’ Trafalgar Road premises is its outdoor (but all weather) shisha lounge, where patrons can enjoy a flavoured hookah or even a cigar, ideally with a glass of raki, Turkish tea or coffee after their meal. While Efes is well-known to Greenwich locals, this beautifully appointed and hospitable restaurant deserves a wider audience.

Lovely food. Service a little slow and forgetful, but the food is absolutely fantastic. Would certainly recommend eating here. Not too expensive either. Yum yum.

Excellent food and very friendly staff. Everywhere very clean. Had the chicken shish which was "delish". Will definitely use again when in Greenwich. Completely recommended

This was our first visit to Efes Meze and we willl definitely return. Greenwich is so crowded but 10 minutes walk away there's an excellent choice of restaurants. Efes is great, it has a very colourful decor and a relaxed feel, friendly staff, excellent service. Both food and house wine were excellent and very reasonably priced. Leave the tourists around the Cutty Sark and take a 10 minute walk down Trafalgar Road, it's well worth it!

I had a wonderful evening at Efes Meze, mostly because of the beautiful company I was with but also because of the beautiful surroundings, fantastic food and excellent staff. Efes Meze is the perfect place to share a meal with friends or someone special.

Visited Efes Meze for the first time having recently moved to Greenwich. The food is fabulous, the atmosphere great and the staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. The meal was tasty and great value for money, and always served with a smile. A truly lovely experience and a great social place for a meal with family and friends. I would thoroughly recommended a visit. :-)

Iv visited this Restuarant a few times, and find it a comfortable place to eat with freinds or family. The food is good quality,well cooked a nicely presented .it always looks so nice. My biggest problem is what to have from the huge menu. I love almost everything. The staff are helpful, nice people and always friendly . If you want a happy relaxed night out I would defiantly recommend this Restuarant ....don't tell too many people otherwise there will be a waiting list for a table.

Food was fantastic and staff very friendly and welcoming. Only reason I have not given a 6 is because the service was slow and we often found ourselves having to go up and ask for what we needed or were waiting on.
