I went to this restaurant with a lot of expectations but I left very disappointedly! The starters were decent but the Iskender kebab had nothing to do with those you can eat in Turkey. The dessert also could have been much better! The waiters were angry or something, they didn't look happy to serve at all. Lastly, it´s very price... More

We then both ordered the lamb brochette which was lovely, tender lamb fillet rice with... More

We first happened upon this restaurant walking around the area in Dec 2016 so I had no hesitation in eating there again. We did so twice during our trip to London. The first time we had lunch from their set menu and were delighted with the Mezze to start, it's a great way of sampling lots of different flavours. The... More

We were going to the folk awards later in the day so stopped off for lunch at this restaurant. We had the fixed price menu and chose the Mezze to start and I had the Tagine with red beans. My husband had the Calves liver with rice. All were lovely. The only complaint was that I think they gave me... More

Came across Sofra while walking in the Shepherds market area of Mayfair. Murat caught our attention so we decided to give it a try. Ahmed was our waiter and has to be one of the best! We had lamb chops and it is not hyperbolic to say that they were the best I have EVER had!! Also fantastic Turkish wine... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
