Sofra in Mayfair serves vibrant, fantastically varied Turkish cuisine. It was awarded a Top 5 Restaurant accolade by The Independent, and its chef / manager has appeared on BBC TV’s ‘Masterchef’.

The Sofra menu offers a fantastic range of choices. 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.

Sofra set menus can be ordered which provide a wonderfully broad range of tastes. Pre and post-theatre options capitalise on the area’s entertainment venues, with only a 10-minute walk to the London Royal Academy of Arts. Separate champagne and wine lists, as well as house specialty desserts like Su Muhallebisi offer a perfect end to the meal.

Sofra in Mayfair offers eclectic yet approachable Turkish cuisine. Crisp, elegant décor enhances the contemporary mixes in the menu and overall dining experience.

    Not satisfied with the food

  • ((*** 19 June 2017 by Larry Wyatt from London

    Honestly, it was very disappointing. I mentioned in our reservation request that it was our 21st wedding anniversary, and that it we had a very memorable meal there 20 years ago, and that we were looking forward to returning. The only special request I had was a great table. First of all, we arrived 20 minutes early to assure we were given a good table. But even though early, we were rushed to a cramped table in a corner by a window, but the only window table without an operable window to the street (it was a beautiful evening, perfect for dining al fresco). The table was actually a bit uncomfortable, so I immediately requested that we be moved to a table near an open window that had just been vacated and was refused because someone had requested that particular table. During dinner, not ONCE did the staff welcome us, or recognize our occasion, and any time we needed attention, more wine, or anything, I had to first get the attention of our waiter. We were treated very indifferently. The food itself was outstanding as we recalled, but the service was not what we had hoped for. We could not wait to finish out meal and leave so we could actually enjoy the rest of the evening. We finished our meal and paid our check in less than 40 minutes. It was the most disappointing anniversary dinner in 21 years. This is no longer one of our favorite restaurants in London, sadly. We will not be returning matter how soon we are back in London.

    Lovely food - our first two white wine choices were unavailable which was very disappointing.

    We enjoyed the food. However, the sea bass did not have a crispy skin like it used to, and was accompanied by very few vegetables. My friend had to pay for extra vegetables, and ordered a second meal as she was still hungry. Compared to our first two experiences at this restaurant, it was disappointing.

    The restaurant was very busy but that dudn't affect the service and added to the atmosphere. The staff were great at responding to our needs including us deciding to share our main courses as well as our starters!

    I booked on-line which was easy to do no hassles. Requesting a table for 4 inside the restaurant by the window which we received. The staff were pleasant and we felt at ease though it was busy we didn't feel that we had rush our meal to make way for other patrons. The only thing we weren't happy with was the restrooms it smelt damp and there was water around the toilet which I avoided going into. Overall the service, food and value for the location was very good.

    We went there last minute for Iftar (dinner after fasting ) and we thought the food would not satisfy our hunger. But This restaurant and their dishes definitely beat our expectations.
