Tempted to give 3 stars but as there's no half stars I'm giving 4 as it was generally very good but could improve with their kebabs. Not been to Sofra for years so a revisit whilst in the area beckoned. I like the dining room,...More

Stopped by on the off chance on a beautiful Sunday morning in Mayfair. The owner bears an uncanny resemblance to Gene Wilders "Willy Wonka" and was a bit of a character but in a very friendly way! His clap got the attention of a waitress...More

We enjoyed eating at Sofra on two separate occasions, as they were right around the corner from the Athenaeum (where we stayed), and the waitstaff was courteous in helping a few family members navigate difficult food allergies. The prices were a bit high, but we...More

I don't know where to begin but give this place a wide berth. Service is terrible and the food is about as average as you can get - commercial Turkish would be my description. Cold starters took over 30 minutes to arrive, main courses well...More

I have eaten at Sofra on visits to London over a number of years and we were not disappointed this time. The restaurant was crowded for a Tuesday night but service was prompt and efficient. I had a very pleasant hummus and lamb starter followed...More

This restaurant is a little cramped, but the welcome is friendly, and the food excellent. My memory is that the lunch menu (which I have had on several occasions) is rather different from the dinner menu (which we had on this occasion). However, the food...More

The food at Sofra is great! Cheap and fast! I have never had a bad dish... Lots of hummus !! I would recommend the lamb cutlets!

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
