Great family restaurant if you fancy a change from Thai food. Authentic kebabs, served with great sides of rice, salad and fries. Another bonus is that it is air conditioned. Glad we tried it out

We ate here for something different and I had the chicken wings meal and my partner had chicken breast. Fantastic meals and surprisingly really good size portions. Felt the staff were very polite and the owner is an absolute gent, opened the door for us...on entry and exit and sent a really good atmosphere in the restaurant. 5 starsMore

Me and my buddy love Turkish food. We were very happy to find a restaurant in Phuket that offers a modern atmosphere. The restaurant is more than clean from the entrance to the toilet. The waitresses were very friendly and asked us in good intervals...if anything was needed. Bread and tea were always free of charge. Excellent! The food tastes very tasty. During our short stay in Phuket we went to this restaurant more than 5 times. Breakfast, lunch or dinner there is a big choice. Thanks a lot!More

We wanted to have a change from Thai food so opted for Efes. The good- the bread was delicious, good service, large portions. We were excited to have some Baba Gannoush but it was horrible and not what we were expecting at all. I think...the place is popular for Russian dishes If that is what you are in the market for.More

After 6 weeks in Asia, we were looking for something different. So when we saw Efes, turkish food, we thought that here was a change we could enjoy. We have eaten turkish/ middle eastern food in many places around the world. This particular restaurant does...carry the worst ever qualification without a close second. We ordered the mixed cold appetizer plate ( hummus, babba ganoush, ezme, yogurt and a fifth dish. What a disappointment. The hummus was dry and tasteless, the babba ganoush while offering a more normal texture was equally tasteless, the ezme looked and tasted like mexican salsa taken straight from a jar you can find in most supermarkets in the us. I will not even describe the other two. We also ordered the cicken shish. Also disappointing with very dry meat. It might be tha the russian and thai food on the menu are good. However, if you sell yourself as a turkish restaurant you should make more of an effort to offer more authentic food. If you ar looking for turkish food and are tempted by the turkish name, do not bother, I would even say run away to avoid disappointment.More

Positives are definately a family friendly restaurant so one to think about if have a family - as a couple however it wasn't the atmosphere we were looking for. Restaurant was labelled as turkish/mediterranean food however I would say it was just generally "western". Hummous...came with a bread roll rather than a flat bread I would have expected. We had the fish combo and I would say it was just out facing. Well cooked but just not appeziting as fried and too much. Didn't help that when feeling like this the table wasn't cleared after we ate and no offer of drinks re-order - had to chase some service. Plates still were not cleared when we got the bill and left.More
