23 years in Cranston...and Efendi's does NOT represent us well. . . For my birthday dinner, and first time dining experience at Efendi's. . . it will be the last. I feel bad for my friend since she picked up the tab! Wednesday 11/30/2011,

There were four of us and three wanted a full dinner entree but I only wanted something light. I ordered a pita sandwich with salad and the server told me that it was only available for lunch. I mentioned it didn't state that on the menu

WORST RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!!!\r

The place is beautiful. On a Friday night there was live music and a lovely ambiance.\r

A group of six of us got there for 7:30. Five drinks were ordered. They did not have four of them.

Efendi restaurant is a beautiful place very romantic. But that is as far as it goes bellydancing night is on the third thursday of the month and it is quite entertaning I give credit to those girls getting up to dance. As far as the service I can' t complain about my waitress she has been their for 3 weeks and it was extremly busy. the menu was raised about 6-8 dollars a chicken plate that is normally 12.99 was 19.99 and their excuse was that if you didn't order an appetizer a $5 charge would be added. you do the math. The owner has no customer relation we had a situation with our bill by $6, salad was included with the entree the waitress forgot to tell us that their was and extra charge for ceasar salad even though they jacked up the price by $6-$8 and our waitress realized the problem and was willing to change it because she forgot to tell us but she needed to get approval from the owner. The owner approached our table and rudly made a comment "That is not our problem if you didn't read it "and brought the menu to us to see it in the small print that it was printed "we are not here to read everything for you" needless to say it wasn't about the $6. the waitress felt bad about what he said and overrode the $6. About the food being meditareanin it was not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! authentic at all the hummus was awful small potions the grape leaves had no flavor. Hot pocket in providence thayer steet have better food

I hesitate to write this review, because I don't want everyone clamoring for a seat there! This is by far my favorite restaurant. It is an experience from start to finish - from the neatly-attired and well-mannered waitstaff to the sumptuous decor to the outstanding cuisine to Efendi himself greeting you at your table. You simply won't find anything like it in any of the many "chain" restaurants sprouting across Rhode Island.

We love going to Efendi's for a simple yet elegant lunch, but also save it for a special occasion, like a birthday or an anniversary. We've learned so much about Turkish and Mediterranean food by trying new items on the menu (trust me, you'll love the kofte!)

Enough said. Go there - you'll forget you're on Cranston's Route 2 and think you've been transported to a magical, faraway place.

Pros: Ambience, location, variety of menu

Cons: Location (on busy Reservoir Avenue in Cranston)

We've visited this place several times over the last 2-3 years. The place made a great progress over time. The menu was extended form chiefly Middle-Eastern dishes to a delightfull blend of Middle-Eastern and Italian favorites. The appetizers are exellent, generous portions, and the home made half-sour Kosher Pickles are the best in Town.
We had an Osso Bucco - a special of the day - it was just right.

I have visited Efendi's restaurant 4 times. Last night, my parents asked me where I would like to go for dinner for my birthday. I simply stated " I would like to go to Efendi's" Since they have never been there, they said we should go and try something new. From the front door service to the food the night was perfect!
