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.

    I'm now addicted to Sofra Mayfair. The service was delightful and attentive, and the food was excellent. I observed on this particular night that it had more than it's fair share of difficult customers, but the staff worked hard to help them.

    I took my Australian friends to the Sofra restaurant to make them taste Turkish meals. By the way the restaurant was the one in oxford street rather than Mayfair which I booked mistakenly. Except than main course everything did not reflect Turkish food. Desert was exactly disappointing. Service was completely under average. This restaurant was also not the restaurant I had eaten before in Ozer restaurant which was closed. The price was highly but very highly exaggerated. I felt I was cheated even I have been trying to introduce the restaurant to my non Turkish friends for years. Completely disappointing. I think these guys don't care customer satisfaction anymore. As a doctor working in a hospital in London i can not recommend this restaurant to my friends anymore with this price. Never. You will keep your customer potential in a short term but not for a long term. This is the rule of finance you know. Congratulations...

    Bad service
    Boring food

    Great food: we chose the mixed platter (9 items) to start, a plate each (I did have to ask for flat breads as an accompaniment)! Lovely flavours. Then chose a main course from a list of perhaps 10? My companions had the lamb tagine, they enjoyed it and I chose calves liver which was delicious. I think it was £13.95 per person?
    White table cloths, good service, not intrusive.

    Food was ok, nothing special. Rude, inattentive waiter. Didn't know anything about ingredients when asked due to food allergies. 12.5% service charge is added automatically to the final bill, hence the waiters don't bother to do their job well. We are not going back.
