Delicious!

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.

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.

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!

Went to the recently opened Cellar@ Sofra, been to Sofra many times and love the place but decides to try the meze style in the cellar. It didn't disappoint. The menu is fantastic we had the traditional meze then the beef stuffed zucchini - which were fab and the lamb loin was the best lamb I've had in a long... More

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

We went there last night with visiting friends and we sat downstairs in the so called wine cellar where it was much cooler. The subdued lighting contributed to a warm cosy atmosphere. We ordered two platters, a mezze and meat which offered a sample of different dishes: Bosnian sausage, dried apricot stuffed with feta cheese, wine leaves with cranberries and... More

I have never been disappointed at Sofra. The pita bread is delicious with a great selection of humus for dips. I have tried all the kebabs, but my favorite would be the swordfish. If you are in a group, the Sultan ' s table gives you a little bit of everything. The lounge downstairs also provides a place to relax... More

Sofra`s has a cheery atmosphere. The food is outstanding - especially the pita and various dips. It is a good place to go with a group of people composed of some vegetarians and some meat eaters. I love the fact that we can see the chef cooking. He seems to take a lot of pleasure in what he does. That... More

Iskender is a $40 dish, but it's very very delicious. You also have to wait a bit more than usual for that dish.
