This has always been our date night place to go as per my previous review. But this time we went it was disappointing. We ordered the peynirli sigara boregi and the icli boregi, the peynirli wasn't like all the other times it was undercooked and had no flavour (I remember it being crispy with a sprinkle of salt on the...

Every now and then you find a place that ticks all the boxes and Sofra is that place. Our lovely waitress Vicky totally looked after us from the moment we arrived and offered the perfect food selection. We also got to meet the gorgeous Laura who was also amazing and gave us some great local info and perfect dessert platter.... More

You could be forgiven for forgetting that you are in Toowoomba, Queensland once you enter this amazing, tardis-style restaurant. From the first wonderful friendly greeting to the final bill you will be transported to another place and time, through your senses; firstly through the simple, yet features some of the most authentic Turkish staples I have had in such a...

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a good feed! Meals had beautiful flavours, reasonable prices and good portion sizes. Warm and welcoming decor with great atmosphere. Would recommend booking a table before going to ensure you get a seat and this wonderful restaurant. Keep it up!

Fantastic middle-eastern fare. This restaurant is always booked out, and it is difficult to get a table if just walking in. The food here is fabulous in flavour and value. The staff are friendly and fun, the service great. Friday and Saturday nights are Belly Dancer nights.

Dining at this restaurant is a pleasure! We ordered a mezze platter to share and we were not disappointed. Generous portions, attractive decor, fast service to our table all combined for an enjoyable experience. You may need to wait for a table to clear if you arrive without a booking (like we did), but it is worth the wait. I... More

I have been to Sofra several times over the past few years during visits to Toowoomba. The food here is amazing. I've never actually ordered a main meal, I've always just shared the dip platter and a few entres. Sooooo good. The service is fantastic as well. I highly recommend Sofra!

In a regional town where good food is scarce, Sofra is a shining light! I ate here 3 times in my 10-day trip to Toowoomba, because I couldn't find anywhere else that even remotely compares. There is a great selection on the menu - even to cater for any dietary restrictions. My personal recommendations: Lamb Cutlets, Musaka, Pide (Turkish pizza)... More

We ate at Sofra with family friends and we had a nice night but in all honesty I felt it was quite overpriced. The most expensive family meal we've ever had.
