“Pleasant Turkish Food”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Busier than expected on a Sunday evening. Had a tasty meal including a very good calf's liver to start. All food and wind very reasonably priced and friendly service. Certainly worth popping in for a bite.

“A pleasant place to eat”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Ate here the other evening having been invited by friends. Was not expecting a great deal but was pleasantly surprised. The decor was light and airy, the staff were friendly and the food was very acceptable and it was quite busy for a mid week evening. Nothing very spectacular but a good average of its type. We would have no problem going again. I understand that on Fridays and Saturdays they have music and belly dancing which we would avoid but could be fun if you like that sort of thing

“A great evening at Ephesus”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Ephesus has a relaxed and pleasent atmosphere with friendly staff who give you just the right amount of attention. You never feel rushed or bothered however they are always there ready to serve you.

On Friday and Saturdays (not sure about any other evenings) they have entertainment which usually consists of a live singer over recorded tracks for most of the evening, and a belly dancer for half an hour or so. The singers have always been of a good standard and really get the atmosphere going. The microphone and music are kept at a decent volume so you can happily talk to the people at your table. The belly dancer comes round and usually a few people get up and dance but there's no pressure to do so if you don't fancy it.

The food is really good. Meat is cooked exceptionally well with a nice grilled flavour. There's a fair selection with some very good fish on offer too.

The price is reasonable and for what you are getting you feel real value for money.

Overall I would recommend Ephesus to friends and families, and anyone looking for a meal out with an extra something special. I personally have been back at least 4 times and it's always great fun.

“Good food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Had a smashing night out here with six friends. All courses were well cooked and served with the minimum of delays, try the Whole sea bass, it looks as good as it tastes. The bill for 7 people having three courses, cocktails and beers was just over £210.00 including service. Excellent restaurant and good value.
