There is tough competition for "best Turkish/Mediterranean" in Sunnyside, but I'd like to crown the newly opened Sofra the clear winner. 

The new renovation is very nice. The feel may be a bit "mature" for some, but makes for a relaxing escape for a date or a ladies' night out. 

As of early 2014, they were still waiting for their wine/liquor license but don't let that stop you from giving it a go before then! It's truly that amazing!

We started off with a mediterranean salad and our favorite, cigar borek. The salad was enormous and very fresh. The cigar borek was perfecly made, and I'm very happy to report that Sofra isn't scared to use a little spice when making this dish. It had that tangy-taste with a beautifully cooked crust that often gets white washed at other restaurants. 

For our meals we had Turkish-style meatball and Donner Kebab. Both were amazingly succulent, came with the most delectable cous cous I've ever had the pleasure of eating and fabulous Turkish-style bread along with complementary white sauce (cacik I think?). 

My only warning is on the side there is a whole pepper; I didn't think it would be that hot but YOWZA it was VERY hot. Don't eat it if you are sensitive to super spicy. My husband loved the pepper though so I hope they don't get rid of it! 

Honestly, it was the freshest and most succelent and high quality meals, I've had in Sunnyside. And the price was completely reasonable. 

The staff was also very lovely and charming. 

I'm a fan of all of Sunnyside's Turkish restaurants, but this, for me, has become the one I will always return to. Good luck Sofra!!!!
