What is Sofra

Basically, a sofra is a square or rectangular shaped KILIM rug. These colourful and flat tapestry rugs have been woven for thousands of years in and around Turkey and have served multi purpose roles around the house. They were and still are often used for picnic outings with family and friends, but they’re also currently used in village homes, where people often sit on their floors and enjoy their meals. Of course, today KILIM rugs are more versatile and more typically used as decorative floor coverings and wall hangings.

The word Sofra itself comes from an ancient Arabic word, meaning dinner table, picnic or KILIM. It is also a synonym for generosity and hospitality. We at Sofra Grill like to think our restaurant is synonymous with those same warm and inviting traits.
