Sofra has such an outstanding reputation for it's fine Turkish fare that it doesn't even have a website - it's that good. Owner/operator Yuksel Gultekin is a master chef and the meals are always delicious. This place almost always is full so it's a good idea to call ahead for reservations. They serve some of the best lamb in Alberta.... More

Loved trying this Turkish restaurant. I did not like the Mariachi beer I had or the dessert, but other than that it was great. A very unique restaurant with nice, cultural vibe. Cozy and welcoming. Large tables for family groups are available. Stairs down to the bathroom though so be warned. Was there for Downtown Dining Week, had the executive... More

We followed our very pleasant waiters suggestion to have the sultans feast, and we enjoyed a very complete dinner! Lovely dolmades made with raisins as well as rice, incredible homemade pitas with hummus. Delicious grilled meats, salad and rice dish. Followed by baclava for dessert. Good value, delicious and friendly! What more could one want?

We had supper hear recently and it's a really tasty restaurant. I've never had Turkish food before, but it was all excellent from the sides to mains to the dessert. It also wasn't very busy on an early Fri evening which was nice. The service was also timely and friendly. We definitely have to come back and try a few... More

The owner chef Youksel, is very particular in making virtually everything from scratch. The result is delicious. The appetizers are great, don't miss the stuffed apricots and the hummus. Lamb is a specialty, prepared several ways. Surprisingly for a Turkish restaurant the steak tenderloin is one of the better steaks in Edmonton. Service is great; the wine list pretty good.... More

A group of 6 looking for a fun evening of wining and dining...and we certainly accomplished our goal! When we first walked in to this busy restaurant, you were greeted by the owner and staff who were smiling and gracious and happy to get your evening started. Traditional Turkish cooking, appetizers like stuffed apricots, and fresh hummus with home cooked... More
