A Middle Eastern restaurant with beautiful décor and top service

Time Out Says

We’ve eaten here a few times and the ambience is always perfectly calm and relaxing, ideal for an intimate dinner.

The large chairs are extremely comfortable and there’s light music playing softly in the background. The lights are dim and the décor is subtle yet stunning. The aesthetics are reminiscent of the local practises of pearling and diving such as the wooden ceiling that resembles sails.

The menu is a mix of Middle Eastern cuisines with a few signature items. It’s not too vast and confusing, which we like.

The hummus platter is an absolute winner – not only is it visually delightful with all the different coloured varieties, but it’s also incredibly delicious. It’s reasonably priced for six versions, too (our favourites are they include spicy, avocado, Beiruti and pomegranate versions).

We opt for a grilled seafood platter with shrimp, lobsters, squid and fish. It comes with a warm baba ganoush and a pomegranate sauce. There’s not a lot of each and they could could do with a more flavourful marinade, but it’s all perfectly grilled.

The tajine barkouk, served in a Moroccan tajine, is brilliant. The beef cubes are wonderfully tender and marinated in Moroccan spices.

Every single dish looks great and Sofra gets a ten out of ten for culinary finesse.

It’s easily one of the best new restaurants in Msheireb and if you’re planning a relaxing evening out, we can’t think of a better spot.
