My mom and I weren't overwhelmingly hungry, and so ordered five appetizers to split, and all of them were delicious. Four or five was a good number for two people with a medium appetite.

Sofra offers a relaxing environment, good fruit juices, and decent food. While certain dishes were small, ordering a mezze does help. One thing which was disappointing was the slow service. Felt it took at least 20 minutes just to get the bill.
