After a fabulous four years of trading we have decided to close
La Sophia on Golbourne Road.

We will re-open imminently in a new site in central London. In the meantime you will still be able to hire Chef Ali to cater for your events. Simply email contact@lasophia.co.uk for more details.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued custom and support over the years and we look forward to welcoming you to the brand new La Sophia very soon.

Watch this space for further details.

Best wishes
Chef Ali and family

Huge Thank you to all

Dear Sousan, I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the friendly staff working on Saturday during our event. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating. We had a number of guests that arrived later than expected and the staff saw it as no trouble to organise the meals for them. They even helped me put a banner up and balloons. You have a lovely restaurant with a really good family friendly feel. We really appreciated having the whole restaurant to ourselves and used the downstairs area for socialising as well as praying. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was! The combination of dishes was lovely. I shall highly recommend you to my friends. Perfect for family/private functions. We celebrated his birthday in a very relaxed and informal way with a great venue, absolutely delicious food and friendly lovely staff. Thank you once again for a great experience! Kind Regards, Panna

Brillent service

I would like to thank you your staff for the brilliant service you rendered us to the lead up and on Saturday night itself.

Please pass on my thanks to them. Zahra

Absolutely fabulous

I would like to say a big thank you to your wonderful staff who were absolutely fabulous when I visited last month. I had a brilliant time and it was so refreshing to find a halal restaurant that does more than just Middle Eastern/Indian food. I will definitely be coming more often.

Our return back to La Sophia

Salam Ali, Just wanted to let you know that we came to La Sophia tonight and it was truly a wonderful meal. So lovely to see the restaurant all refurbished and looking really, really cosy. The service was tip-top and we tried the "halal wine", which was really nice, and every course was made with love and from the heart. The venison was divine (it's my favourite meat and I haven't been able to find it halal) .....my husband said "this is the nicest meat I have had..." We will be coming back again soon inshAllah! I am posting on Facebook and highly recommending the restaurant, and I really hope you grow from strength to strength, as you really deserve it. Warmest salams from us all. Nabila & family.

Christmas at La Sophia to remember

Thank you and the staff at La Sophia for all your help in organising a brilliant evening. All my colleagues absolutely loved every dish, and the service was excellent. Sorry if we were a bit loud by the end of the night as some of us got carried away with a fantastic evening. We defiantly are going to spread the word about La Sophia.

Wonderful Iftar menu

Hello, just wanted to say a thank you for the wonderful Iftar menu. Everything was perfect. The service was very good, but the food was divine. Arranging prayer area was a bonus and added to the enjoyment of the evening. Everyone enjoyed every dish, especially the chicken which was special. Once again thank you for serving us. I know most of us will be back with our families. Munir

Quick note to say thank you

To all the staff at La Sophia, Just a quick note to say many thanks for providing us with such a fantastic meal and venue for my leaving party last Thursday. We had a wonderful time and it was the perfect send off for me. Many thanks Jo (Golborne's children's centre)

Fantastic

Myself & 10 friends ate at La Sophia on Monday evening and it was fantastic. The food, service and atmosphere was great! We will definately return... and I highly recommend the Quail casserole starter and lamb as a main course! Enjoy!

Impressive

I was very impressed with La Sophia. The surroundings were very attractive, plenty to hold the attention. The service was very friendly and warm, bending over backwards to be of assistance. Food was well-presented, with a new menu of unfussy but carefully-considered dishes. Everything was hot when it came to the table, not always the case on a quiet Monday. The meat seemed well-hung - my ostrich steak was certainly melt in the mouth, duck egg with foie gras will have me coming here again

Thank you Chef Ali

Thank you chef Ali for being a great host and for the amazing food you provided us. Our family had never had French cuisine the fact that it is all halal they were all impressed and talking about your restaurant afterwards.. Especially the ostrich and rabbit dish. All have said they will return. Big thank you to Karolis who was an amazing waiter for the night and his cocktails were really good. Some of the guests have booked a table for next week, and I should be back soon. Omar

Thank the team for a wonderful birthday, the restaurant was fantastic. Really intimate atmosphere, excellent service, and the food was to die for. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Samantha

We were bowled over by this restaurant! Delightful and helpful staff, very succulent steak tartar and scallops to start with an equally tasty fillet and roasted cod for main. The bread was delicious and fresh and the wine went perfectly with the meal. The smallish restaurant had a lovely ambiance and immaculate toilets in to the bargain.

Jessie

La Sophiais perfect for a romantic lunch but I have been told by the waiter it's even better in the evening. I could only imagine and will return for dinner one night. The service is attentive, the food divine, the filet, rabbit were very good and wine selection is well suited for all budget, the wine that we were advised to go with our duck meal was perfect. La Sophia will not disappoint
