“Don't go there go next door to Al hamra”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Food was terrible, falafel was burned, really expensive food. Al Hamra is next door food is amazing. Sofra has this awful billing system where they charge you cover charge which is really not done my advise to anyone going there JUST DON'T GO!!!!!

“Cheap(ish) and cheerful”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We were lucky to get a table as walk-ins on a Saturday evening, so can have no complaints about the general racket and being a bit cramped.

Pleasant service, fresh food and a reasonable bill in this most expensive area made for a good evening out.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Had lunch there with four colleagues on a warm, muggy day. The windows were all open creating a pleasant "out doors in doors" feeling. Food is well cooked Lebanese, with plenty of choice for those not overly hungry. Price was very reasonable and the cooking good and fresh. An excellent choice in what is an horribly expensive part of London.

“Breakfast”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Stayed a couple of nights around the corner, when asked, the concierge suggested Sofra for a full English breakfast. It was excellent! The lincolnshire sausage was great, portions were generous, well-prepared, service was attentive & polite - the space is cozy, could easily be crowded, but very well decorated and cared for. Can't speak to the dinner menu, but you won't go wrong for breakfast.

“Very Good Food”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

This Turkish restaurant is located in the Shepherd's Market in Mayfair. We had a very nice meal here, although it is a bit noisy.
