My mom and I weren't overwhelmingly hungry, and so ordered five appetizers to split, and all of them were delicious. Four or five was a good number for two people with a medium appetite.

Sofra offers a relaxing environment, good fruit juices, and decent food. While certain dishes were small, ordering a mezze does help. One thing which was disappointing was the slow service. Felt it took at least 20 minutes just to get the bill.

We enjoyed a great Egyptian meal here. Although clearly designed for tourists, it had great food, good service, and a pleasant atmosphere. Make sure to have a reservation, the first time we tried to eat here we couldn't because there is no reservation.
