Second time I have been here and it was simply incredible. Got the mixed platter for both appetizers and dinner. Both were perfection! I have yet to have Turkish food, let alone Mediterranean food that even compares to this. The restaurant is beautiful and the owner is just great! I can't wait to come back on my next trip to...

They made some changes to meze (tapas) menu and I loved it. Had the tavuk şiş with some Meze and wine. Getting even better everytime I come back.

Had the mix grill platter and hummus. Hummus lacked flavor. Mix grill was good. Flavoring a little mild to my taste. Nice atmosphere, trying for a more upscale look. I thought the prices were a little on the high side for the quantity but not unreasonable if you are considering an upscale environment. I usually expect a more casual atmosphere... More

Visited Efes with high expectations to eat authentic Turkish food. I was disappointed would be an understatement. There was hardly any options available for a vegetarian like myself. The hummus available in a British supermarket tesco tastes better than what Efes had to offer for 45 RMB. The vegetarian plate although tasted good but was not up to the standard... More

Very nice space and attentive staff - including the owner. We were met at the door by Ramazan and seated immediately. He took our drink order as we perused the menu. The food and drinks were amazing, only to be eclipsed by the high level of service - not just for Shanghai standards, but for pretty much anywhere. My wife... More

I closed my eyes, I was in Turkey! Thank you ! Amazing experience, with top quality food. Ramazan Yilmaz welcomed us and made us feel home. Truly deserves its reputation as one of the best spots in Shanghai :)

Very good food, outstanding welcome from the manager, Ramazan Yilmaz, and an all-round success for the four of us who went. When you desperately need a break from local Chinese cooking (nothing wrong with it but we needed a change and some good vegetarian options), what could be better than real hummus, fresh Mediterranean salad and dips, freshly made bread...

Description
The soul of the Ottoman Cuisine, smack dab in the heart of Pudong and now authentic recipes of Turkish cuisine is available a few door down from some of the tallest buildings in the world, in Lujiazui at Efes -the only and truly genuine Turkish Restaurant in Pudong. Efes serves up modern twists on Turkish classics and that healthy Mediterranean cuisine doctors are always going on about. Try the kebabs, chargrilled over real charcoal for extra smoky flavor. And don't forget a bottle of raki, the anise-flavored liquor and Efes beer that will have you singing "Take me back to Istanbul" in no time.
Efes stranded between Lujiazui and Century Avenue and there are two metro stations nearby (line 9's Shangcheng Lu and line 2's Dongchang Lu) and diners who do make the trip will find an upmarket restaurant serving modern takes on Ottoman classics,
Dine in our elegant yet comfortable dining room, or enjoy your meal outside, at a very huge garden facing to a pool which is rare chance in Lujiazui and amid the bustling streets of downtown Shanghai.
