Myself and my partner were very happy with our choice of restaurant this evening. After googling the best restaurants in sheffield we found this little Gem and stepped out of our usual comfort zone of either italian or indian. The place had a lovely atmosphere, staff and gorgeous food. It was quite busy but we didnt wait too long for... More

Went here with my family for my birthday dinner. Comfortable and pleasant place, we all had the Sultans grill which was cooked perfectly, good sized portion for 2 people, thoroughly enjoyed the food and the house red wine we had. Would happily visit again.

I went for dinner with a few friends who had come up from another city, being nearby in Broomhill I decided to finally give Lokanta a try. I ordered the mixed grill, which cost £17.50. I have been to plenty of Turkish restaurants before and the mixed grills are usually well sized consisting of a lot of different meats. Though,... More

First visit here and we were not disappointed. In a very nice area of Sheffield near the University. Lovely food, very helpful and friendly staff, especially Emily, who was our waitress. Even tried the Turkish coffee with a taster Baklava, very nice too. The lamb cutlets were delicious, served with sauté potatoes, tomato, pepper and rice. Will definitely go again... More

Came for a small birthday meal and the food was delicious and the wait wasn't long either! The waiter was very attentive and friendly, unfortunately we didn't catch his name but it was on a Wednesday night (14th sept) but he came to the table with a smile each time and nothing seemed too much hassle for him. We stayed... More

Must confess, only came here because Thyme Cafe was full. Glad we came, made a really nice change. Pleasant service, very broad menu. Starters were great, fun to order a mix and the vegetarian meze was very tasty. Good main courses: generous portions, well flavoured, nicely cooked. Lamb and aubergines in various guises was good, a generous portion of seabass.... More

Along with many of others, we were convinced by reading the recent review of this restaurant in the Waitrose magazine to pay them a visit. One of the best Turkish restaurants in England? I think not! At least, not from our experience. What we did find out was that it was fairly average fare and certainly not up to the... More

Staff were treated awfully by the rude management who seemingly had no sense of common decency. I felt really sorry for all the waiters and waitresses who were very polite and attentive. If I could give zero stars, I would. The food isn't even worth mentioning as the terrible service by the management totally ruined the night.
