Efes 2 is a atmospheric and animated Turkish restaurant that is a fun place for parties and nights out with friends. Located in the heart of the West End in Great Portland Street, this colourful and cosy eatery is decorated with blue ceilings, Turkish lamps, lemon-coloured walls and wooden furniture, and Efes 2 has a basement dining room which hosts live entertainment and belly dancers every week. The menu is filled with a selection of crowd-pleasing kebabs, steaks, and meze platters – we love the aubergines stuffed with onions, tomatoes, parsley and garlic; the charcoal-grilled leg of chicken marinated, rolled and skewered with peppers and mushrooms; and the diced lamb and onion kebab.

We pop in here ones in a while: really like the juicy chicken kebab. They are never stingy on the meat, sauce, salad and extra salad. Very well flavored.
They have a restaurant, never tried it! Only tried the "old guy in the front", he takes his time...won't be rushed by staff or customers :) ...it's nice, funny.
I like! See you soon!more
"Live music" is defined mostly by someone singing karaoke style over a tape, but to be fair, they do sing actual live music now and then with a turkish harp type thing. Need to do a sound check though, loves, the balance was totally off.
It was fun but £120 for a bottle of bubbly, some poxy fruit (and they were not that good quality, not that ripe, but on the other hand, beautifully cut, if...more
