Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So glad we found this little gem of a place just off the main strip, hands down beats the bigger restaurants on the beach front on taste, atmosphere and service. We’ll be returning on our next visit to Side in Sept22

You must visit Sofra whilst here. A fantastic, friendly atmosphere that makes you feel at home. Food is of a good quality cooked by Hamedo with a great choice available. Apo, Salih and staff can't do enough for you and make your visit worthwhile. Come...and see and taste for yourself!!!More

Stopped here to get out of the sun and treated ourselves to a Turkish Breakfast. Great food and friendly staff. This is as others have said the real deal. I can't imagine that anyone wouldn't like it here. We will certainly return for more!

Chanced upon the Sofra by accident. And we ended up going again on our last night in Side. The Chefs Special was very good (a spicy casserole). Great service and reasonable prices. A very artistic chef as well.

Our first visit here was excellent all round. We went back for a second visit a week later and the lamb cutlets were inedible, so tough and gristly. They did offer a replacement,, but by then my husband had nearly finished his meal. They did...not charge us for this meal though and gave us free coffee. Very apologetic. Service was good and friendly.More

Unlike many other restaurants in the area, we didn't feel pressured to eat here. The guy at who greeted us was a very friendly bloke who made the best effort to make us feel welcome. We asked to make amendments to what was on the...menu and they happily changed to suit our needs. Food tasted lovely and the atmosphere was so relaxing. Not bad prices either, make sure to leave a tip. On my downside which isn't a fault of the restaurant , but more so the wild cats in the streets wandering in whilest you eat. To be fair, the staff done what they could to shoe out the cats but when they keep on coming back it can be quite hard to stop them. Overall a great experience and will come back whenever we are back in Side again. ThanksMore
