What an absolute transformation from a pub! Managed to get a table at 7pm on Saturday evening, very busy in there! But there were plenty of staff around so didn't have to wait long to put our orders in. We had a mixture of meals and both the chicken and the lamb was so tender it almost felt like it... More

Firstly, my experiences in this restaurant are not as good as when you order a takeaway. I may add that they hurry you quite a lot and the staff are not particularly friendly and welcoming. However, as a takeaway, the food is sublime. Regular customer and I can highly recommend the chicken shish/lamb kofta combination. Never had a bad meal... More

Well worth a visit. Bring you own booze as not licensed. Plenty of selection from local shops stocking cold beer and wine etc.

Very popular so would recommend booking first. Food quality and price very good - take your own booze even better. Would recommend to anyone you can get a take away or eat in.

I wish they launch an Ocakbasi somewhere in Sussex! This is our local. Meat is good. Service is always on point.

Another very nice evening at Ephesus. Excellent fresh food, great service, very nice atmosphere. What more could you want. Inexpensive for the quality of food you get. Highly recommended.

This was a quick visit with some friends who had recently discovered the restaurant not far from where they live. It's a basic place with simple, honest decor, and friendly staff. They don't serve alcohol but you can take your own and they will help with glasses and openers. We had a mixed starter, which was excellent; very fresh and... More

Food was good, service ...they were rushed off their feet and kept forgetting things. If you go at a quiet time it might be alright but it was after one and the restaurant was full, too many delays on food and little things missing. We went as a family of 9 including a 4 year old and 6 year old.... More

We visited this evening as a treat for our Daughter. The welcome was warm and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The food was absolutely marvellous and there was plenty of it. The bill was very reasonable and I would not hesitate to recommend Ephesus to anyone. Brilliant!
