Booked a table for our anniversary, arrived and greeted by friendly staff. An extensive wine menu was offered and we chose a Portuguese rose and bottle of house red both of which were lovely. For starters we had sardines and feta & spinach borek. Both...More

We had our first meal here on the weekend and were very pleased with the service. The singing guitarist also added to the atmosphere. The complimentary olives were a nice addition. The food was good and the staff very attentive. I love the silver dishes...More

It's a restaurant in Orpington High Street which itself is turning into just a parade of eating establishments, charity shops and pound shops thanks to the thuggery of Tesco's megastore by War Memorial. But Ephesus is really something special. Some might remember it as the...More

Had a fab time esp when there were the belly dancers-my partner loved it. Very entertaining. As for food, you get a good portion size for what you order. Never had a bad visit, would recommend the food.

My fiancee and I had dinner here after reading all the good reviews... but I have to say wasn't blown away. Food was pretty average, except for the freshly baked bread, which I really liked. The thing that bothered me the most was that I...More

We wanted a light lunchcso shared 3 starters and a drink for £10.95. Delicious calamari, proper cacik and then chicken wings. My daughter loved her non alcholic cocktail. The linch was delicious and excellent value.

Nice food, fresh and tender lamb dishes. Hot and freshly prepared. Good selection of side dishes and lovely starters. Prompt friendly service and all reasonably priced.

First time at Ephesus, very efficient staff and quick order. The starters were excellent, we had Lentils soup which was very tasty and as well as the spinach&feta Borek. However, the main veg moussaka was pretty bad, more than two thirds of the dish was...More

Response from alikali2006 | Property representative |
you don't need to book for lunch time if you are not more than 25 people
Is there parking near the restaurant?

Response from Neil B | Reviewed this property |
I parked in the Walnuts car park about two minute walk away, there is parking outside if you're lucky enough to get a spot!
The table of 35 last week was for my birthday and I have a few points I would like to ask you about. Firstly please could you send proof of the 'cctv' that apparently shows us having desert because none of us were that drunk that we don't remember having it? A birthday cake was bought out but that was paid for and nothing to do with the restaurant! Secondly no one did not pay their bills, all debts were cleared, although your service charge that was absolutely disgraceful and NOT advertised!! Quite frankly your service and staffs attitude were about as good as your grammar in the response to Hayley R's review!! The food was less than exquisite and your restaurant is not somewhere any of us will consider coming back to in a rush!!
