Hüseyin Özer’s chain has built a decent following, partly due to Özer’s knack of opening in areas that lack reliable, casual and reasonably priced eateries. Awash in unremarkable brasseries and sandwich bars, Mayfair’s Shepherd Market is one such locale, which is partly why this branch of Sofra is always humming with custom. The formula here is the same as it is elsewhere in the chain: slightly cramped seating, speedy service, a lengthy and by no means exclusively Turkish menu (steaks and smoked salmon are both included), and prices that are fair if hardly rock-bottom. You probably won’t find food or atmosphere to match those of north-east London’s best Turkish restaurants, but Sofra is a trustworthy option.
