Location and contact

The soul of the Turkish 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

I have been there several times -really good food (meat, salads, stuffed grape leaves, soup, ..). My favorite is lentil soup, a little spicy. Staff are friendly.
