Sofra was fantastic. Went there for the hummus and it did not disappoint. 10/10. The bread was so good, felt like it came right out of the oven. Would definitely be back for more!

Food was simply fantastic! Reminded my family & I of our trip to Turkey a couple of years ago. The service was perfect, and so was the ambience. Highly recommended & a restaurant that I will definitely visit again.

Sofra, Turkish Cafe and Restaurant, The place is located nearby Bugis in Shaw Tower. You can see the place right from the street in front of Shaw Tower. The place is quite spacious, the ambience is good and the decor is also interesting, having few Turkish lamps. The menu itself have a lot of varieties, ranging from starter, main menu, drinks and deserts. Ordered few menus, from Red Lentil soup, Turkish bread, Sesame bread, Kofte, Pide, and the recommended Chef's plate. The order is taken quick and precisely, and afterward the food are brought out. The tastes are good. the portion is a bit small for certain menu, however they do have larger portion (Some menu are meant for 2 people). Definitely will come back again!

I love the atmosphere at night where they have windows that show beautiful cityscape. They serve complimentary dates during ramadhan. We got this baked chicken with mushroom serve with rice and we also ordered spaghetti which came in huge serving, it does look very presentable and you will get bored of the taste after a while. We also bought rice pudding for dessert but to our disappointment, it didnt came our as sweet as expected. :(

Read mixed reviews on hungry go where on bad service but good good with outdated decor. Pressed on and it turned out to be a pleasant experience. Service staff was attentive despite being busy on a Friday evening after 8pm. Willing to change us to a window table upon request. Most of all advised us not to duplicate order and too much.

Food was great and was served pretty quickly despite the crowd there. Even my middle eastern colleague thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Waitresses were also very helpful and polite when we asked them for help to take photos for my group. Glad that the quality was still there since the last time I came many years ago. Keep it up!

Fantastic meal, the skewer meat dishes are huge and delicious. I had the Chef's plate and it is awesome! Will return again for more! Try the apple tea, Baklava and Chef's plate. The sesame bread is freshly baked and worth every single cent. Overall a pleasant dining experience.

I've gone to Sofra since I was much younger, and am delighted to know that the place still retains its charm even after all these years. A great place for a casual meetup with friends, though not exactly for a romantic sit-down dinner.

Service staff is friendly, but it seems like the restaurant was understaff for waiters on the ground. Took us a while to get our seats and to get attention to finally ordered food. Food arrived quickly though; and was amazing.

Excellent service; rare chance to taste great, fresh hummus which goes so well with the Turkish bread. We also had the red lentils soup and the Chef plate - highly recommended combination for a meal at SOFRA.

Good food, although servers Should be able to respond quickly to take orders. Hard to maintain eye contact. One particular server seems unhappy in his job and perhaps should consider a career change. Otherwise experience was pleasant thanks to the restaurant manager and the other servers.

The food was very good, I especially appreciated the generous servings of vegetables with our main courses. The service and the ambient was also nice. Well, just a little bit too pricy in the appetizer section.

I had the Sofra Yaprak Tavuk and hot apple tea. Loved my choices. Tried my friend's Sultan Kebap and found the mutton to be tender and delicious too. The place was quiet on a weekday night which was perfect for our group gathering.

The range of food is quite interesting and tasty, service satisfactory and the price reasonable. However, the noise level in the restaurant is quite high. Perhaps more curtains or more distance between tables will improve the overall ambience. Thank You

I'm new to Turkish food, and personally do not enjoy the favors. The restaurant looks very popular and was 80% filled on my visit. Reasonable price for food portions, and my favorite was the eggplant starter dish and sesame bread.

Good restaurant, that has stood the test of time and remains an institution for mediterranean/Turkish food. Good ambience, not too grand nor too informal. Food might need some updates

Service is good but portion is small. Nice ambience but the price of the food is a bit pricey. All in all, I think this food is quite reasonable only if you can get deals from Groupon.
