Please note, this restaurant is now closed for business.

Serving sumptuous Turkish delicacies, Sofra Covent Garden presents a character-filled setting in Theatreland. As well as a tranquil roof garden, a greenhouse-style dining room is adorned with lush suspended hanging baskets.

The Sofra menu offers a fantastic range of choices, which are ideal for sharing to sample a variety of flavours. Traditional Turkish dishes such as lamb meatballs and lahmazza fuse perfectly with a wider range of international cuisine, like grilled succulent Malaysian prawns. Falafel and salad combinations are just the beginning of the vegetarian options.

Separate champagne and wine lists, as well as house speciality desserts like palate-cleansing Su Muhallebisi, offer a decadent end to a meal at Sofra restaurant. Tantalising cocktails also offer a touch of glamour.

Presenting a selection featured on BBC’s Masterchef, Sofra London offers a contemporary setting and delicious traditional cuisine. The Theatre Royal in Covent Garden is only 2 minutes’ walk away.

    Very good food and service. We went there very late after theatre and didn't feel rushed in any way.

    Good food, service a bit slow but they compensated us with wine. Suspect the kitchen was understaffed or inexperienced. Would recommend if no time constraints. Pleasant atmosphere.

    Excellent food in a convenient location for the theatres.
    The menu is varied and caters for a good variety, as does the drinks menu. I like the restaurant but I felt the service staff let it down as we and another couple were asked to move tables part way through our dinner, and the waiting staff seemed to forget about us on a couple of occasions.

    This is one of the best restaurants (and ceratinly best Turkish restaurants) I have visited. The food is outdtanding and the Turkish wines are superb (especially the house wines). The service has always been excellent here & the manager is extremely welcomoing and attentive. He creates a good atmosphere & this shows in the behaviour of the staff.I have visited this restaurant twicein the last 6 months & will be doing so again later this year.

    friendly welcome, cheerful atmosphere, attentive servlce.Good interesting food with welcome vegetarian availadility.

    A minor issue, where a drink, tea or coffee was added to the desert on the menue, the hot drink arrived first.

  • ((((* by from Bromley

    Service exceptionally good in view of the restaurant being crowded. In fact service slightly over-attentive, i.e. hovering. It was obvious eventually why, when we were told our table had been reserved by another party. This was after 2 hours. I imagine this would not happen at any other time than Christmas. Food very good as usual, particularly the lamb dishes and squid starter.
