Sofra Istanbul -- Great Turkish in Vaughan!!

Recently popped in to Sofra Istanbul Kebab house at steeles and the 400, in the same building as the Quiznos, for lunch. The place was packed with people dining in, mostly of turkish and other mid-east looking origins. It's more of a takeout restaurant but their menu is quite extensive and remiscent of a dine-in restaurant. Me and my dining partner ordered the Adana kebab entree ($13ish) and a vegeterian pide ($10ish). Both came in huge proprtions and were very flavourful. Other interesting items on the menu included a few whole fish dishes and falafels which one lady dining beside us exclaimed were the best she'd ever had. I really enjoyed my meal and will definetely be back. This was my first Turkish dining experience so I do wonder how it compares to the other Turkish places in the city. Has anyone been?

  1. Thanks for sharing this find. I will give it a try if I can. I like the Pizza Pide place on Gerrard and Pape. Did try the Alara as the orginal cook of Pizza Pide moved to bigger digs but I prefer the old spot. Other than that haven't had good Turkish food here in the couple of other places I tried.

    1. I don't live too far from there and I'm getting a bit bored with the midddle eastern fare in my neighbourhood (Bathurst & Steeles) so I'm gonna try it.
