Description: At Lokkanta we strive to create a new approach to eating that will change many of the prejudices and myths surrounding the view of Turkish cuisine. We are passionate for Lokkanta to be a brand that stands for quality recipes with a great emphasis on healthy food. Excellent choice to suit all tastes, diets and pockets! We like to describe ourselves as a fast casual dining experience. This means a relaxed atmosphere with Turkish music played at a level in the background that will have you tapping to the beats, without being intrusive. A new funky interior with enough light to actually see your food. All our food is prepared on site by our experienced chefs using locally sourced products that are 100% British. On a cold winters night why not sit in front of the mangal. Watch the chefs cook and enjoy a bit of theatre. We have a semi private area towards the back, which can seat 8 comfortably and 10 if you're very close. We have changed the rules and moved the bar to revolutionise Turkish cuisine as we know it. Come and experience it for yourself.

It's now the third time I have eaten in this restaurant and I love it! Don't pay too much attention to the furnitures - it looks more like a fast food restaurant than anything else. I believe people, like me, come here primarily for the quality, fresh and generous mediterranean-type food. Go first for the mix mezze that you can compose yourself and then you carry on with one of the grilled meats. Everything I tried was just perfect.

whether this is really in the top 50 restaurants in London is probably very up for debate but Tripadvisor reviews like reasonably priced food, good service and this place delivers both. The staff are really good - courteous and profession. The setting is very relaxed, essentially a cafe although a smarter room is available in the back. Certainly worth a return visit.

This is a small, simple restaurant that can easily be overlooked when walking along this road. DON’T DO THIS, GO IN!!

It is a great Turkish restaurant with many of our favourite traditional meals on the menu and many new things too.

The food is cooked on a charcoal grill, in effect, an indoor barbecue and it is very tasty with beautifully spiced sauces! If you aren’t sure what to order the very friendly and helpful staff will give you a guiding hand.

If you order a main course you are given a complimentary mixed cold starter, which is very nice.

As we discovered, the portions are generous, so it is probably best to order extra if you need it rather than too much to start with. However, the staff will pop any uneaten portions into a foil container for you to take away. Hence we had two meals!

The wine and drinks list is varied and reasonably priced.

So, great staff, great food, nice drinks, busy atmosphere; sounds like you should give this a try? Definitely, just don’t eat for the rest of the day!

Highly recommended.

We are fans of Lebanese food and we've tried it in quite a few countries. This one was pretty good. We had 2 starters and 2 main courses.
We also got a complimentary small platter.
We could pay with a credit card (as indicated ok their window) and there is a 12.5% service charge included :)
