My partner and I have been to Sofra's twice for dinner. Once alone and once as a large group. Both times were amazing. The Pide I had was so flavoursome! Service was very attentive even though on both occasions they were packed! It's very homely and a lovely comfortable experience to dine in. Will definitely recommend and return to Sofra's! A new favourite!! :)

For me Sofras is like a second family. Like all businesses we have our ups and downs. Unlike most businesses we strive harder to fix the downs immediately. Sofras has excellent food and well and truly deserves their rating. It's not just a restaurant where you sit and eat. It's a restaurant that feels like you belong, like you coming home to eat. The waitresses strive to make sure your comfortable and full
Well done Sofras.. Keep up the amazing work

We dine at Sofra nearly once a week and we always have a fantastic meal. We have tried a few other Turkish restaurants in Brisbane and none of them compare to Sofra. We have been when they are busy on Saturday night, during the week and for lunch and each time the food tastes exactly the same, always great and we always get excellent service. All the staff are friendly and always make us feel very welcome. We have tried nearly everything on the menu and have loved everything. Our favourites include: the lamb cutlets, mixed grill, the pide with egg and cheese and the creamy chicken soup. We also love the Baklava which is served warm and with a delicious cream. We had our wedding rehearsal dinner at Sofra and they really went to a special effort for us. Our guests still talk about what a great night it was and how much they liked the food. My aunt and uncle make regular special trips from the Gold Coast just to eat at Sofra. It is without a doubt the best restaurant in Toowoomba by a long way and if ever we move we will be driving back to Toowoomba just to eat here.

Sofra has been our restaurant of choice for several work and private functions and it has never let us down. The menu is extensive and varied, the food is always fresh and delicious and the array of flavours keeps diners asking their fellow foodies 'what did you eat, it looked amazing!' As I prefer to eat plant based foods Sofra has a dish available from all the courses, bar the mains selection, which is my only disappointment as the entrees can be served as a main size as well. After our table shared two platters of Turkish bread and dips, we went on to order individually and no-one was let down in their selection. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable, explaining the dishes to those who queried, and checking with the kitchen on requested alterations. The bonus of the night was the traditional dancing by two women, dressed in sparkly, jangling refinement and the talented guitarist and violinist. Topped off a great night. Highly recommended.

Sofra is such a great hit for Toowoomba. It's so nice to finally have a decent option to take visitors where the food never lets you down! Being a huge fan of Turkish food, I have to say that the flavours are just so right! Much better than some of the major options in Brisbane.

The owners/managers are just lovely, great to have a chat with and certainly helpful in explaining the dishes to you. We've had a few of the waitresses being quite rude, or perhaps just strange personalities that aren't used to dealing with people. But I think you get that everywhere!

It does have quite a cramped atmosphere and a rather stark feel when it's quiet, but it's more than made up for by the beautiful food.

Number one tip is to try the Turkish liqueur, beautiful.
