Food and service continues to be of a high standard and to see a full restaurant on a Monday evening says it all really. If you visit Toowoomba and don't have a meal at Sofra, you're missing one of the city's best experiences.

Fabulous food and outstanding service! We shared a calamari plate for entree which was delicious! We then had one grilled prawns main and one baby lamb cutlet grill! Both outstanding!

We revisited Sofra tonight. The heat of the day had left us limp, short tempered and fussy. We were made to feel very welcome by Sofra's staff. My wife and I enjoyed a mezze platter...a variety of textures, flavours, fresh, pickled and cooked food. Neither of us felt like a big meal but the plethora of tasty morsels kept tempting... More

When visiting Toowoomba this place is always on our list. Offering a delicious selection of Turkish fare at reasonable prices. Both indoor and outdoor eating allows you ( like us to bring your four legged travelling companion or just eat alfresco. Service is excellent and friendly. Takeaway also an option at this great Margaret Street eatery.

Traveling on business and have eaten here once before, I thought I would give it another try as the food was great last time. Had the "mixed grill" but this time the ground meats and it was again sensational. To the point I couldn't fit desert in. Highly recommend.

What an experience. The Nepalese chef sure knows what he is doing. Taste, good portions, good service, ambience, you will find them all here. No wonder this is rated #1, it is well justified. Try it you will like it.

We have two people and ordered one BBQ lamp one BBQ beef. To my surprise the lamp was cooked so perfect without any fishy smells. The dancing performance during the dinner was the best part that brings all the customers smiles, and we end it up with a great dessert with rice and ice creams in it.

I sourced this restaurant via the "near me " function on trip adviser and what a pleasant surprise it was. I was in Toowoomba on a Monday night for business and the restaurant was packed. I dined on my own and managed to secure the last table for the night. The waiter guided me to a glass of very decent... More

I recently visited Sofra Turkish with my husband and father to celebrate my 23rd wedding anniversary for a Sunday Lunch. The service from when we stepped through the door was warm and welcoming. My father had not tried too much Turkish food before, but he was converted by the end of our dining experience. Thank you for making our celebration... More

Always a delight to have a reason to go to Sofra. The young ones opted to share a seafood platter. The calamari was stunning, apparently the prawns, too, but they wouldn't share them! We share the meat platter and a few ordered mains. Again all without fault. I love the "cleopatra' kiss" drink- always a must for me, but my... More
