Very affordable and extremely tasteful. I was so full after tasting all the different dishes that reminded me of Turkish and middle easter cuisine. Very good atmosphere and very authentic setting. I would definitely recommend this place to have lunch

Their place in Borovje is very cosy,with rich menu and great tasting,authentic food. Caffe is also very good. And please don't get čevapi or pljeskavice cause you cant it it everywhere.

I regularly go to this restaurant. They have the best "ćevapi" in town and this is original "Sofra" in town. There are a few of them, but this one is the best. The waiters and the oriental ambient are great

We found out about this place by pure chance, and it became our favourite in Zagreb. The service is great, the food is amazing! Oh, and get a coffe...you'll get that turkish rahat lokum sweet! <3 Sofru smo nedavno slučajno otkrili i ne znamo kako smo prije nje živjeli. Izvrsna hrana, velike porcije, dobra posluga. Sve naj naj najbolje. Uz... More

Very nice tipical Bosnian restaurant, very good food, near the Mosque. There is also one other Sofra restaurant close to the centrum of Zagreb. This Sofra has more flaire and oriental spirit. And better barbecue.

Been here a number of times, food was always excellent. Bosnian and East European specialties, generous portions, nicely decorated restaurant, kind staff and good service. The only thing that was missing was air conditioning, last time i was there it was middle of summer and we were "boiled alive" inside. I don't know whether they installed it in the meantime....

The lighting of the place isn't fantastic. Service was above average as well. Food above average. Quite far off the main road and have to travel about 15-20 min from city centre to get here. Price though vs portion is really good if you want cheap dining!
