You've got to try one of the best kebabs in Adelaide
If you're looking for one of the best kebabs in Adelaide, then look no further. Sofra Kebab House over at West Terrace (next to the Australian Pizza House) has got you covered.

When I entered, I was surprised that the interior was so large. Most of the kebab houses I've been to were rather small and crowded; Sofra was big and spacious. Most of their tables could fit at least 6 people so this would be a good place to bring a group of friends.

Sofra keeps its décor clean and simple; there's plenty of space for people to manoeuvre around which I really like. I hate having to squeeze myself through people and tables when I'm trying to get to the other side of the restaurant.

You order your meals at the counter that's located smack dab in the middle of the restaurant. As with most kebab houses, you can see the meat being cooked behind the counter and a bunch of toppings displayed in front of you. Sofra has a pretty extensive menu: from regular kebabs to falafels, from yiros to wraps and even an assortment of ice cream and sweets.

Most of their meals come as combos. I got Combo 4: lamb and chicken kebab with rice and salad on the side accompanied with either a coke or a bottle of water. It was $16 which honestly I felt was a little overpriced for kebabs.

One bite of the kebabs though and I forgot my earlier disgruntlement about the price; it was so good! The lamb was flavourful and tender while the chicken was probably the best chicken kebab I've ever tasted. The rice, which I believe is Basmati rice spiced up with either turmeric or saffron, complements the meat pretty well. There's also a bowl of sour cream if you enjoy getting a creamy yet tangy taste from your meats.

I wasn't able to finish my meal on my own as the portion was rather sizeable. I was too full to even think of trying their desserts; maybe next time I'll come with an even emptier stomach to sample some of their sweets. I believe they have a coffee and cake deal for $6 which might be worth trying out. Another thing to mention is that they also do takeaway.

Sofra is owned by Muslims so their meats are all halal.

Your Comment
I agree Sammie, it is very pricey and not everyone needs a big meal like that.
I might wait until they do child serves. Pity, because it sounds good food
