Their haydari and muhammara is delicious! I ordered both and mixed some together. Salmon is really nice, as well as the adana kabab. A lovely respite when you're tired of the local Chinese cuisine. The chef and spices are from Turkey, so you get genuine...More

Most of the time when my husband and I got out to dinner in Shanghai it's expensive and just OK. Efes was fantastic, and it was reasonably priced. I really enjoyed my tenderloin and the hummus was excellent. We will be back.

The soul of the Ottoman Cuisine, smack dab in the heart of Pudong and now authentic recipes of Turkish cuisine is available a few door down from some of the tallest buildings in the world, in Lujiazui at Efes -the only and truly genuine Turkish Restaurant in Pudong. Efes serves up modern twists on Turkish classics and that healthy Mediterranean cuisine doctors are always going on about. Try the kebabs, chargrilled over real charcoal for extra smoky flavor. And don't forget a bottle of raki, the anise-flavored liquor and Efes beer that will have you singing "Take me back to Istanbul" in no time.
Efes stranded between Lujiazui and Century Avenue and there are two metro stations nearby (line 9's Shangcheng Lu and line 2's Dongchang Lu) and diners who do make the trip will find an upmarket restaurant serving modern takes on Ottoman classics,
Dine in our elegant yet comfortable dining room, or enjoy your meal outside, at a very huge garden facing to a pool which is rare chance in Lujiazui and amid the bustling streets of downtown Shanghai.
