Every area needs a reliable, excellent Turkish, and Efes is the one to go to in Spitalfields. It's a Turkish institution on Brick Lane that's been serving families, drunk revellers, and pretty much anyone in need of some seriously good meats and salads for years now. Mixed grill and cold mezze are essential, plus enough warm bread to sink a ship. This place is almost permanently busy and buzzy so don’t expect the most attentive service in the world.
