My goodness. I go to the hairdresser a few doors down and somehow just noticed Sofra. We went tonight. We had the beef meatballs, the rack of lamb, and the salmon special. In addition we tried the hummus and pita as an appetizer. I don't normally go on about the food...but my companion said the lamb was THE best lamb... More

My first time in Edmonton, and had seen all the glowing reviews and awards for this restaurant, so I thought I'd give it a try. I had the pastermi sarma, a spiced cured meat wrapped around some form of dip or purée. The meat had the authentic spicing, but it was way too salty. I couldn't get through it. I... More

We are not Turkish food experts, but we can tell you .... it was an awesome meal. A foodie friend recommended this restaurant to us 10 years ago! We had tried a few times to go - but reservations during popular times are a must and we were never that organized. This past weekend we 'scored' - its hockey playoff... More

Sofra has such an outstanding reputation for it's fine Turkish fare that it doesn't even have a website - it's that good. Owner/operator Yuksel Gultekin is a master chef and the meals are always delicious. This place almost always is full so it's a good idea to call ahead for reservations. They serve some of the best lamb in Alberta.... More

Loved trying this Turkish restaurant. I did not like the Mariachi beer I had or the dessert, but other than that it was great. A very unique restaurant with nice, cultural vibe. Cozy and welcoming. Large tables for family groups are available. Stairs down to the bathroom though so be warned. Was there for Downtown Dining Week, had the executive... More

We followed our very pleasant waiters suggestion to have the sultans feast, and we enjoyed a very complete dinner! Lovely dolmades made with raisins as well as rice, incredible homemade pitas with hummus. Delicious grilled meats, salad and rice dish. Followed by baclava for dessert. Good value, delicious and friendly! What more could one want?

We had supper hear recently and it's a really tasty restaurant. I've never had Turkish food before, but it was all excellent from the sides to mains to the dessert. It also wasn't very busy on an early Fri evening which was nice. The service was also timely and friendly. We definitely have to come back and try a few... More
