If you're in the mood for something different..... – Meal reviewed: Dinner *** Sofram was a pleasant discovery. The food was authentic, although they have a few non-Turkish items on the menu to accomodate diners who do not or cannot eat standard Turkish fare. The food is fairly priced. Certain meals, which happen to be my favorite (doner and iskeda), are only available on weekends. On the Friday evenings that we've been there they have a belly dancer performing. The service was very attentive and a glass of wine that we felt had turned was quickly replaced with a new glass from a freshly opened bottle.
Great Turkish food and service! – My wife and I have lived in Pineville for years. Too bad we just discovered Sofram. We dined on a Friday evening and service was extremely pleasant and helpful. We both had the doner and were pleasantly surprised by the Turkish wines. Definitely ask for and heed the wait staff's advice. We had the best dessert that sounded absolutely horrible from the description (phyllo, pistachio, and I forget what else...), so listen to your waiter's suggestions. All in all, we had a wonderful meal with enough left over for lunch the following day.
great service. try the lamb! – We tried this restaurant because we were told it was good, and we were not mislead.
We had the Adana Kebab)and the Yogurt Kebab entrees.
Both were ground lamb with unique seasoning and sauce. Very tasty and good portions.
We were not even going to have dessert until we saw the Kunefe on the menu. It's shredded phyllo with a sort of cheese melted in it, baked and then a syrup poured over it. Very tasty.
While the food was good, I would have to say the server was even better. She was very eager to please and very friendly. We'd definitely return to this place.
Terrible Menu, Lousy Food – We tried this restaurant after finding their website. The online menu was a complete misrepresentation of what they actually offer. It listed about 10 things that they did not actually sell. In fact, their menu was extremely small . When the food came it was small portions and bland taste. There were no detectable spices . I would say a cotton ball had more taste. I would not return.
Great Turkish food in Charlotte. Try it you'll like it. – Some friends invited us to join them for dinner at Sofram Saturday night. Our only regret is that we hadn't found this restaurant sooner. The food was great (I had the Lamb Saute) and a different but wonderful rice pudding dish for dessert. The atmosphere was warm and relaxing. The service was great. I would definitely recommend you try it, we will be back.
Delicious! – My wife and I dined at Sofram last Friday evening and really enjoyed it. To start with, the ambiance was great. In addition, the owner came over to our table several times and was extremely friendly and helpful. Our meals were absolutely delicious and reasonably priced. I had the doner and my wife had the yogurt kebab. We both really enjoyed the food.
I will definitely be returning to Sofram; it was an all around pleasant dining experience.
Authentic and Delicious Turkish Food – Having lived in Turkey, I can attest that the food at Sofram is definitely authentic and is excellently prepared. They serve some of the most common Turkish dishes and for the most part are very knowledgeable regarding these dishes. Although it's a bit pricey, it is worth it for the quality of the food. If you are lucky, the owner/cook himself will be there, and will stop by your table to chat. Make sure you top off your meal with some baklava and Turkish kahve (coffee) or cay (tea). Afiyet olsun!
Editorial Review – Serves authentic Turkish cuisine for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch.
Not Turkish at all – I don't believe that a ceaser salad is a turkish dish and neither is sautted scallops. I think this place is overylly priced and well below a turkish restaurant found in other parts of the country.
Such a nice experience – Customer service was wonderful. they are so friendly and talkative. and I have ever tried Turkish cuisine before, but food was SOOO GOOOOD!! You will see me at restaurant often!
