We ordered "pom döner" and "döner teller" yesterday. . The restaurant looks good.. clean and tidy. The Service was also nice but the taste not so great.. I think the sauce was under average.. but they have a great location (very close to "Rhein")

Really no clue what I ate, it was called the daily meal for 6.50. Chunks of meat and veggies in sauce, rice, salad, bread. Simple, tasty, stick to your ribs food. Very good, lots of vegetarian options. Friendly staff was helpful with this non-German speaking American.

If you move turkish food especially Lahmacun then you have to visit Sofra II. Their meat is delicious, salad fresh and they make their own Lahmacun bread. Plus their Bulgur is the best you'll ever have, trust me. If you haven't been here yet then you've been missing out!

12:30 at night, hungry...a good kebab would be perfect. Lots of reviews saying Sofra II is the best kebab in Mainz...so excited then so disappointed...I wonder if anyone here has tried a real kebab? Arriving at the restaurant, 30 minutes before they were due to close, and the place is acting like it's already closed. No meat on the rotating... More

Pretty good Turkish. My complaint is I WANTED a pide. Really wanted a pide for lunch especially since their sign says, “Bistro Sofra II Kebap & Pide”. I expected to see pide on the menu but … none. When I asked the waitress told me the Turkish population in Mainz isn’t sizeable so there’s no market for pide. Okay, I... More

The title says it all. The staff are always friendly, the kebabs are tasty (and filling) and there is a nice atmosphere in here. I eat here a lot.
