The richly decorated restaurant adds to the exciting vibe. A good selection of dishes, with clear description of each, complemented by an inspired wine list. Our party of eight were all served in a timely manner by friendly and helpful wait staff.

Brusque and coarse staff, they spoke loudly with no regard for customers. Water bottles have dirty tops. The lamb kebab was undercooked,though the rice was tasty. I was not charged for my meal. Prices too high for what you get. Underwhelming.

If you are ever in toowoomba, Sofra is the place to eat. Great service and amazing food. My favorite place! I get the lamb cutlets and they are Devine. Kids get an activity bag while waiting for food which is out promptly. Highly recommended

I'm sorry I don't know. They serve nice meat things so that would be gluten free. Best to give them a call or visit their menu. Hope you like it as much as i did :)

Sophra is most certainly fully licensed and the range of wines were very acceptable though I am not sure if they are local wines
