A great Turkish restaurant

went there for a work lunch. The place doesn't look trendy and doesn't try either. The menu is simple yet all the dishes were good. I had the Sofra Kebap and it was excellent, the cheese was lovely, the lamb and beef really flavoursome and the aubergines perfectly cooked, the bread was light. Proper turkish food. It is one of the too rare restaurants in Singapore when you feel that the owners and the cooks actually care about the food they serve, rather than creating a pathetic hype to justify stealing from their customers. The service was a bit chaotic and it took a bit too long to get the deserts and the bill. and don't expect a smile. I will definetely come again though, for great food sold at a great price.

i must say without a doubt that the service is one of the worst i have ever encountered in a restaurant till date and that is saying alot since l've eaten around the globe. The waiters ignored our arrival from the onset and took ages to take our order. Waving at them to attract their attention didn't work either and after an onerous delay the said subject finally approach we had gone past caring.
 
Aside from the hopeless service, the food quantity was small but the quality passable.

In short, avoid this place with a 10ft pole.

Save you money on food and service that you can get here at Sofra. My worst experience on Turkish food and beyond that the SERVICE. 

The restaurant was totally empty (have always seen it like that especially during lunch) and you'd see signs of Reserved on every table. You can't get a table of your choice more so nobody came up while we were there and the stewardess very smilingly said a big party is awaited ...lol

Crew REALLY REALLY gives a d*** to whether you like the food or not. We left 90% of what we ordered and they were shameless in giving us vouchers of 10$ discount on next time. They didnt even care to know if the food was under expectations.
Veg Kebab - Unluckily we ordered veg Kebab, which is no where near to Kebab, it was a vegetable mixture looking like rissoto
Soup - No where even miles lose to how Turkish soup is.
Chicken Kebabs - Tooo spicy
Service - Crew would stand on your head and keep staring at you, laughing, (found that wierd) 

No doubts this restaurant is a defunct place and no wonder if they are making any money considering the HORRENDOUS SERVICE and food they are offering.
Having food there might as well give you a not so good impression on what Turkish food, and might not be fair. 

Turkish food is to die for, go to a better and known place.
