Reviewed 30 March 2018

We decided on our way back from London to try the new restaurant Efes .a turkish Restaurant in Dartford.It was 6.30 on a thursday night ,The restaurant was very modern looking and a large amount of staff .I was asked on entering if we had a reservation (which we didn't )as the place was nearly full .I said we hadn't a few moments later the head waiter came and said he had a table but only for 1 Hour .I said that was ok if we could get the food quick enough we would eat,
we sat at a table near the grill which was very warm and were given bread and salad which was nicely presented ,the warm bread was delicious .I opted for the mixed kebab and my wife had chicken yogurt as we didn't have time for a starter .
The mixed kebab was very tasty with chicken Lamb and mince kebab with rice ,
the chicken yogurt had tasty chicken but the yogurt seem to overpower the dish and it turned into more of a soup .having said that the portions were excellent .the staff in general were attentive and the price was very reasonable,the only thing i would fault would be that they did not take cards and it was cah only .I presume that as the restaurant had just opened this would be quickly rectified ,
We will visit again as there is a varied menu that needs to be tried including starters and a varied looking sweet selection

Finally we have an amazing restaurant right on our doorstep and it makes lahmacun (Turkish pizza)!!
It is definitely the best Turkish restaurant I’ve ever eaten at (I’ve been too ALOT) and we need not travel in to London anymore. We ordered Halep Kebab and chicken Beyti - these were wonderfully tasty and great portions. We were brought freshly baked bread and salad too at no extra cost. The service was great although whoever answered the phone that day for our booking sounded a bit moody and irritable. This didn’t spoil anything for us though.

The decor is wonderful, the furnishings brand new and comfortable, and the building with it’s tall windows is stunning. Would recommend this to anyone and will be visiting for my birthday in a couple of weeks.

Overall you can tell this is a well established business doing what they do well in other locations already.

First time I have been to Efes in Dartford.

The food was delicious. The marinade on the chicken shish was amazing. Next time I'm going to try the diner as I believe it isn't minced lamb :).

the decor is beautiful as well

We spotted this stylish Turkish restaurant when visiting the Orchard Theatre and dropped in on the spur of the moment. The staff were excellent and accommodated us even though they were very busy. The decor and lighting is very modern and the first impressions were excellent. I ordered baked prawns as a starter and the portion size was good, although there was too much of a tomato taste for my personal taste. My main was mixed shish; the chicken was tasty but the lamb pieces were quite small and were slightly overcooked and not pink. To summarise, great service, friendly staff, great decor but sadly average food.
