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.

Fantastic. I've been a stickler for food in this city, but I've had the best lamb chops of my life here. If you're a group of three, order the mix platter and just sit back.
The kabobs are full and filling. I prefer them in a wrap over a pita. Overall, great service, nice people, cool outdoor seating and indoor vibe.

It is round the corner from my work's London office and across the road from the hotel so I've been here a good few times, both to eat-in or to takeaway. It is always...more
Delicious Kabobs! I order the chicken box, which came with veggies, rice, pita, and sauces. As soon as I ordered, the raw chicken was thrown on the grill to sizzle for ten-fiften minutes. It's very fresh. I might say it's one of the best chicken kabobs I ever had. The outside was crispy due to the slight char marks, and the inside was moist and tender. Very delicious and full of flavor. It...more
Rudest waiting staff in London. Food is very low quality and grossly overpriced. If you want the restaurant service equivalent of being dragged naked, feet first through a carwash this is the place to come. Avoid at all costs. I'll certainly never be coming back.more
Warning. This place milks every customer for as much as they can, in a very mercenary fashion. CHECK THE BILL!!! I was charged for bread I DIDNT ORDER and even a 'cover charge'. When I questioned it, they became very aggressive. Be warned!!!more
