Efes One - Turkish Restaurant

Hello everyone!

Our May Meetup is to be at EFES ONE Turkish Restaurant, Albion.  They promote themselves as the "first Turkish owned restaurant in Brisbane with Turkish chef and manager" and they are offering a reasonably priced banquet followed by after dinner entertainment by way of bellydancer.  All in all sounds like fun with the added bonus of shimmying off the calories.

Have a look at the website

Where do we meet?
6:45 pm at the Albion Hotel for pre-dinner drinks for those who wish.  The restaurant is directly opposite.

How do we get to Efes One?
Car (car parking available); there are numerous buses and Albion train station is close by.

How much do I pay?
The amount of $45.00 per person which is made up as follows:  Food $40.00, Tip $2.00 and Organiser's Fee $3.00.

The restaurant is licensed and I shall try to arrange a cash bar for us.

What we get:

MISSAFIR SOFRASI BANQUET, Traditional Turkish Custom :  
Start with Haloumi, selection of dips, Turkish garlic bread, dolma, green beans, grilled eggplant, zucchini and Turkish salad;
Followed by Efes Kebab, combination shish kebab, izgara kofte, Pirzola and a selection of pides;
Finished with Turkish sweets or tea/ coffee.

For our Vegetarian Diners I am quite sure I can sort out a few alternative dishes for you but you MUST give me notice.

How does it work? 
This is a pre-paid event.  Once you RSVP yes I will send out an email with the banking details so that your payment can be credited in good time. Your payment must be received by 4:00 pm on 15 May 2013.

Can I get a refund?
As I need to confirm the final numbers with the restaurant by close of business on the Thursday prior, your payment is non-refundable after 17 May unless someone can take your place.

I am sure that everyone will thoroughly enjoy what this restaurant has to offer.


Looking forward to seeing everyone again and as always, if you have any questions please feel free to call me.

With best wishes


PS - Financials:  I am holding $15.00 credit for Rosie.
