6 of us dined for a birthday meal and it was the first time any of us have eaten here. It was incredible. Not one bad meal. Everything was fresh and tasted amazing. Portion sizes were huge too. Great value for money. Would recommend highly.

Picked a quiet evening but food was great. I’ve had plenty of Greek/Turkish/Lebanese mishmash across the UK, but this was the real deal. As good as a Saloniki giro

Pro's - Atmosphere was good, staff were friendly and ingredients used were of good quality. Con's - Although ingredients were of good quality, the dishes tasted very bland, dry and tasteless.

We were originally looking to go somewhere else but looked too lonely with just 4 others diners in and glanced across the road and saw Ephesus. It looked welcoming and so glad we went inside. The staff were very warm and friendly and the food...More

**WE ARE OPEN ON BANK HOLIDAYS **At Ephesus Restaurant, we promise you a meal to delight all of your culinary senses and bring you to the very heart of Turkish & Greek cuisine. Turkish & Greek cuisine is largely the heritage of Ottoman cuisine, which can be described as a fusion and refinement of Central Asian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Balkan cuisines.Turkish & Greek cuisine has in turn influenced those and other neighbouring cuisines, including those of Western Europe. The Ottomans fused various culinary traditions of their realm with influences from Middle Eastern cuisines, along with traditional Turkic elements from Central Asia (such as yogurt), creating a vast array of specialities-many with strong regional associations. It is this same fusing of traditional influences with our own regional expertise in delicacy that enables us to create a one of a kind eating extravaganza.
