Our story

During the economic depression, Huseyin Ozer created cafes where we served healthy, reasonably priced food and at times even allowed the customers to determine the price they paid.

So this is how the chain was born. Our restaurants now are situated in some of the most important areas of London. One is named Özer, and others are Sofra. Huseyin Ozer has contributed to the Turkish-English Chamber of Commerce for many years, sponsoring the Civil Society Organization in London.

Our restaurants have been the first and only Turkish restaurants recommended by the Michelin Guide. Our restaurants distribute Turkish tourism brochures. We promote good Turkish food and hospitality. Our English cookbook ‘Sofra’’ is still in print and sells worldwide.
