    Nice , basic food and reasonably priced lunch menu with a glass of house wine for £1 extra. Nice afternoon for a girls lunch. Quiet enough for a chat. Service could have been more attentive but otherwise very nice.

    We received a warm welcome and we were looked after very well by the very attentive and friendly staff. We initially were shown to a table upstairs, but one of our guests had a preference to sit by a window. We were immediately, and without fuss, relocated downstairs, which suited everyone, as it was cooler and quieter, so we were all very happy. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed our evening. We will most certainly visit again in the near future.

    Service polite and quick but bit confusing change of waiting staff while eating caused few misunderstandings. First impression very good, beautiful place and facilities. Food was overpriced for the quality we received, to my surprise it wasn’t as fresh (avocado was black and salad sauce with mustard was so overpowering the dish I couldn’t taste anything else, chunks of hallumi were overdone and greasy) and tasty as you might expect from that sort of restaurant, drinks were ok, except the fact my virgin Bloody Mary had so much lemon at the bottom I could drink only a half… I wouldn’t visit again. There’s far too many better restaurants in Wimbledon tbh.

    Let me tell you about Efes Premium Restaurant – it's not just a meal, it's an experience! As soon as you walk in, you're welcomed by this cozy vibe that screams 'Come on in and relax=)' And let's talk about their mezes and starters – absolute perfection And don't even get me started on their happy hour cocktails – talk about a treat! definitely will come again with friends and family because it's one of the best places I've seen in the Wimbledon area It doesn't get much better than that.

    We were recommended this restaurant as new to the area, but disappointed with the food, also the live band (music) was so loud you couldn’t talk to each other as it was impossible to hear, the food at Aya down the road better

    Nice restaurant - great decor and a welcome addition to Wimbledon. However, the music was way too loud upstairs. We found it difficult to converse. I think it’s meant to be a family restaurant but noise levels were of those of a crowded bar. Food was ok - my chicken salad had no seasoning on it and there was no salt or pepper on the table. We found it difficult to get the attention we of staff. Our initial waiter who took our order was very friendly but others possibly due to it being a busy Saturday were not particularly attentive. Didn’t ask us whether we wanted desert just assumed we wanted the bill when we waved at him. I’ve had better Turkish food if I’m honest but this is above average. Love the vibe but service and seasoning lacking!

    Hi there, I booked a table for 8 friends to celebrate a 50th birthday. We were given a lovely big table upstairs in the restaurant. Our waitress was so sweet and patient, taking our order and helping us with our choices from the menu. Sorry, I didn't remember her name! The food was delicious and lots of staff around to cater to your needs during the evening. Will definitely be returning and spreading the word of our wonderful experience at EFES! Well done! 🥳 Many thanks Debbie and friends

    It started off well, with the waiters coming over and accommodating our needs, as one of the party was gluten free. We got our drinks and starters very quickly but it went down hill swiftly from there. There was a randomness about how the table was cleared - they brought the mains out before clearing the starter plates for a start. They left some starter plates on the table and whilst three of us were given fresh cutlery, my mums used cutlery was taken off her plate and put back on front of her?! The food was average - I love Turkish food and have been to many Turkish restaurants and I wouldn’t come to this one again knowing there are better ones out there. I had chicken shish, which was nice but I’ve had chicken shish before where you can eat all of the chicken and there’s no fat but I left some of this chicken. The rice was really tasty though to be fair. We also ordered the kleftiko which wasn’t that nice. The meat was very tender but it came with some pale puree (not sure what it was) which wasn’t very nice. My dad enjoyed his beef rib and my wife had the salmon, which she enjoyed but it’s not very Turkish but it was the ‘safest’ gluten free option. So meal done, and I was looking forward to another drink (our glasses were empty at this point and no one had bothered to see if we might like another beverage!) and the rice pudding for dessert. However about 20 minutes past….no sign of anyone coming to clear our plates so we decided at that point we wouldn’t be having dessert. Good job too because even when they did clear our plates we weren’t offered anything else! It was almost as if they didn’t want us there anymore. Now this was a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was not busy - there were other people dining but it certainly was not full - so it’s not even like they were rushed off their feet. It’s a shame really as we are locals and the restaurant itself is nice but service counts for everything in my view so this won’t be a revisit.

    Service is impeccable , warm welcome, friendly and helpful waiter. We were seated in a quiet area, as requested. My vegetarian food was good, my husbands lamb was a rather small portion, hence the 4 stars, rather than five. I would definitely recommend

    My third visit to Efes Premium tonight did not disappoint. My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays with 5 of our friends and we all had a great time. We were there on my recommendation so the pressure was on but Onur and all the staff looked after us brilliantly. Nothing was too much trouble and the cocktails were amazing - thank you Derya Everyone was really impressed with the style of the restaurant, the ambience, and especially the food which was excellent. Tonight we were upstairs and there were musicians playing live which added to the experience This is fast becoming a favourite and I’m already planning my next visit.

    I recently dined at this charming restaurant where courteous and hospitable staff manage the front of the house, while the kitchen crafts delicious and beautifully presented plates. Among the many delightful dishes, the Efes Ezme, Hummus, Sigara Boregi, pan-fried liver, and chicken shish have effortlessly become my absolute favorites. The attentive service combined with the exquisite flavors truly made for a memorable dining experience.

    Was very disappointed. Took my wife there for our anniversary last night . Service was very rushed . Plates taken away before we had properly finished starter as main came out so quickly. My plate was taken once finished but had to ask staff to remove wife’s from table 25 mins after we had finished. Then had to chase waiters to ask for desert menus Nice restaurant but so very disappointed by service standards

    I had a business lunch with my client today. We thought that it was a normal Efes branch. However, it was more than an ordinary Efes. They really deserve the "Premium" name at the end. The portions were just the perfect size for lunch set menu, the service was amazing until the end. This restaurant is a fine dining version of Turkish Cuisine in a nice atmosphere. Premium quality for a reasonable price. Happy to have it in Wimbledon!

    Such a surprise, we knew little about this new Mediterranean restaurant before we booked. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the front of house team, bowled over by the upscale decor, live music and bustling atmosphere. Once seated we received friendly, efficient service and enjoyed excellent food. The hot and cold meze appetiser's were excellent. Wide variety, fresh, quality ingredients delivered with flair. We chose Calamari, braised beef humus and halloumi (needed to be hot) served with delicious breads - paired with a wide range of wines and cocktail choices again all good value. The main courses felt like they could have had some additional thought in terms of sides as part of the dishes and the pistachio lamb kabab felt overpriced at £28 the only thing that didn’t hit the mark from another-wise excellent evening. We look forward to visiting again and bringing friends next time to enjoy another great evening at Efe’s.

    Been going to Efes in it’s various guises for the past 40 years starting at the first restaurant in Great Titchfield St W1 so I’m a real fan and look forward to trying out the latest dishes whenever I can. So today we we tried it for Sunday lunch. The restaurant is lovely and very shiny and the atmosphere is very good. Food is up to normal standards but the service was atrocious, extremely slow and they forgot sauces, desserts and the mint tea which really spoiled the lunch. I guess one takeaway is don’t sit upstairs as downstairs looked like it was running smoothly and maybe the waiter was just having a bad day!

    First time here and we really enjoyed it. Lively, buzzy ambience on a Friday with live music, a warm welcome and friendly service. The food was so good. Everything was fresh, hot and well presented. The portions are very generous and perfect for sharing (we ended up over ordering slightly) but will know for next time. The value depends on your appetite but excellent quality all round and good service.
