The food was okay but not brilliant. The portion size was a little on the small side and my husband still felt hungry after eating... And he doesn't have a massive appetite. The food was a little on the dull side... One of our party...More

Ephesus serves nice food and is a lovely comfortable restaurant with a good atmosphere. I had the mixed souvlaki which was served with very nice tender meat . Service from the waitresses was very good.

The food was satisfactory. It was good quality but the flavour of my vegetarian moussaka was quite bland. Also dishes were expensive - most mains are £14-15 each. Friendly waiter.

**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.
