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.

    Superb food in a cosy but vibrant Shepherds Market location. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and could not fault anything about our dining experience.

    Being lovers of everything Turkish, had a wonderful Easter dinner @ Sofra, Shepherd's Market, Mayfair London (been there many times before). Both had the iskender entree very tasty although different (usually strips of Kebob on flat bread but this was thin patties of grilled lamb). Good wine, attentive service, good value.

    The food was delicious but the service was poor....long waiting times and we had to ask more than once for the items ordered.

    We have enjoyed many meals over the years at Sofra. But we arrived on time for this reservation and were told there was no table. They sent us downstairs to an empty room .... returned occasionally to tell us it would be another 15 minutes .... finally we went next door to Al Hamra and had a delicious meal with perfect service. This happened to us once before at Sofra .... this restaurant needs to respect reservations!

    Second visit to this restaurant over a three year period and again it was thoroughly enjoyable. The food, the service, the location -all great. The price range per head is spot on. Well done to the team at Sofra, youve got it right as far as im concerned and will return.

    Excellent. The mezzanine is always a treat. My grilled duck leg was a little tough, but the flavor made up for it. Service
    From a young lady was SUPERB.
