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.
£25 and under

It still has the quaint old restaurant feel inside, with lots of signed photographs from some of the many BBC celebrities that have eaten in here over the...more
Wonderful food. Good service. Staff aware of your needs. Enough food to take some home to enjoy another night. Watch out for the delicious banana liquor!more
I have only had take away and the quality and flavor is good and the under £5.00 price for a kebab is great. The donner kebab in particular is a value as is has about 5 pound of meat!
I also run into cabbies in there often and one of them told me Efes 2 is on the cabbies "top 10" for take away in London - a better endorsement than mine!.more
