Best food this side of Turkey

Outstanding meal, service, owner, and experience. Best food we have eaten in Canada and rivals any meal we had while traveling in Turkey. Can't go wrong with the grape leave appetizer and lamb. And Turkish coffee to top it off. Wish this was closer to our house!

Amazing flavours in a great atmosphere. We started with the pita and trio of dips. All were excellent. The swordfish was citrus delicious. The meatballs were incredible. Seasoned to perfection! Service was excellent. We will definitely return!

What a great evening. The restaurant has a wine/tapas bar in the best . The main and second floor is the restaurant. The second floor has small rooms that you can reserve if you would like some privacy. The food was one of the best meals I have had in Edmonton. Our group of four shared the appetizer platter which... More

The food here is Turkish and seems to be quite authentic, but there was nothing special about it. The service was good. The prices are too high for the smallish portions: for two people with shared appetizer, a main course each and soft drinks, the price came to over $60.00.

All three of us ordered different meals, and we were all impressed. Delicious kebabs, salad, rice and appetizers. Good service too. A bit small so you may want to be conscious of that before you visit.

If you love lamb, this is THE place to eat. The lamb loin is tender and cooked to perfection. Everything is perfect here for the gourmet, at fair prices. If you go to only one restaurant in Edmonton, this is it!

If you're craving Turkish cuisine which includes delicious grilled meats/ veggies/seafood and pita with various dips, then look no further. Sofra is probably the best choice in the city for well-prepared food. I highly recommend the pita with hummus, the grape-leave appetizers and the garlic shrimp as appetizers. You can't go wrong with any of the entree selections - there's... More
