Easily spotted on the corner of Commercial Road and Lake Street in the north-western Melbourne suburb of Caroline Springs thanks to its eye-catching, blue-mosaiced exterior, Efendi Mediterranean Cuisine is the neighbourhood’s answer to the healthy food that this geographic region is famous for. Open from breakfast time through to dinner. Traditional lunchtime specials include Turkish Adana-style kebabs and the chicken or lamb doner, while a kids’ menu makes Efendi family friendly. Evening dining is when Efendi really shines, with the BBQ banquets and vegetarian banquets offering an affordable introduction to Levantine and Middle Eastern-inflected Mediterranean food plus live music and belly dancer every Saturday night.

Futhermore, Efendi offers fantastic stone-baked breads, small plates, weeknight specials and authentic Turkish street food.
