About Efes Turkish Restaurant

What is it about Turkish cuisine that makes it just so darn good? Is it the freshness of the produce used? Is it the succulent meats from the charcoal that quite literally melt in your mouth? Or perhaps the glorious array of mezze dishes? To be honest, we think it’s all of the above plus more, and if you’re after the best of Turkish cuisine in London, well the choice is obvious. Efes Turkish Restaurant is a London institution, and has well and truly stood the test of time. Owner Kazim Usta opened the first one in 1975 and hasn’t looked back, and their spot on Commercial Road in Whitechapel is brimming with all the some seriously incredible dishes and all we can say is – why are you still reading? Get down there asap!

Great food! Great service! Just Great! We had a table of 9 people and they couldn't have been accommodating if they tried. All the food was cooked how we liked it and my LAMB CHOPS were amazing. Even thinking about them makes me want to go get some now. We took our own alcohol, however we noticed they've started selling beers and spirits, which was rather annoying as we'd gone to Tesco next door and bought a considerable amount of alcohol. However it won't go to waste with Christmas around the corner. :-) We had starters and mains each, with a few of us having a desert. The bill came to £247 which was just great! We worked it out a £30 a head including a tip - which was great food with good company we all thought was pretty good. We had a drink in The Culpepper(commercial street) before heading to the restaurant which was about a 8min walk from there. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and will be returning soon :-)

This was Saturday and the restaurant was busy,but very nice food.One thing was my fault or staff.My friends have meat with bulgur and no one suggest that they have to order salads separate.I had something else ordered and when I noticed was too late.They food was tasty but without salads too dry.My earlier experience from other Turkish restaurant they ever serve the food with salad. Why I missed it.My friends did not ask me because they were my guests . Generally a great evening.

Lovely service and very friendly staff. Great food! The restaurant is very clean and modern. Busy and popular but not too busy to feel forgotten by staff. Will be visiting again. Thank you very much!

Great restaurant / food for a party of 9 guys. One portion of chicken wings needed to be returned to the grill as a few were still bloody inside. New portion was delivered promptly with apologies from the kitchen.

One of the top 10 meals we have ever eaten anywhere in the world. It's great fast service but it's the quality that shines through.

Food was great but some of the waiters could do with a bit of cheering up. Had to ask a couple of times for cutlery, even though table had been reserved. Have had better experiences at Efes.
