Set lunch Menu was good value for money. Service was fast, friendly and prompt. Would have been even better if desserts could have been an opt in option for the set lunch menu.
Nice food and good service staff .. Nice environment and good location
The set lunch was very worth it. unfortunately the familiar faces has gone back to Istanbul. Great.place for lunch
Great food as always. Service could be more prompt but given that there was a lunch crowd and they were probably short on staff, we accepted the lack of attention. But otherwise, good place to dine
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!
Ordered Turkish bread to go with the Hummus, great combi. Chicken Beyti and Shish Kebabs as mains which are delicious. The bread for Beyti seems the same as turkish bread. So if you are ordering the turkish bread, might want to try Sofra Kebab that uses a different bread. Overall all, food is delicious and served promptly, service staff are attentive and the place is crowded on a fri night but not noisy. So you still can enjoy a wonderful peaceful dinner at Sofra.
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Read mixed reviews on hungry go where on bad service but good good with outdated decor.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.
Great fun environment for team lunches! We had a farewell lunch for one of our colleagues and we had not gotten together as a team for some time. It was a great way to thank our team member for a wonderful working experience and to celebrate the work we had done.
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!
