Fresh, tasty, good value

I often eat here and the food is always fresh and tasty, and very good value. The mezzes are excellent, but be warned, they are quite large portions. The fried aubergine is to die for.

Lokanta is by far and away the best Turkish restaurant In Sheffield and compares very favourably with those around the Green Lanes area of London. Really fresh salads and other mezes, plus excellent lamb kebabs and grilled squid, Good Turkish beer and wine as well. Highly recommended.

Vegetarian meze was quite tasty but nothing special and the side orders were expensive and again not particularly notable. Nice decor and pleasant service.

Friendly service by owner, Farouk, who sources the best ingredients for authentic Turkish food. Meat wonderfully marinated so that it is as tender as possible. With food this good the restaurant deserves more attention than it currently receives. Well worth a visit if you want a tasty quality meal.

We were staying in Sheffield overnight and were lucky enough to stumble upon Lokanta. From the moment we walked through the door service was prompt and professional without being over bearing. As we both have allergies staff were also very helpful about helping us to negotiate the menu and bringing us alternatives where necessary. We had the pistachio/walnut cheese and... More

I booked a table at Lokanta, as the reviews were quite good, and I was visiting my granddaughter who lives nearby. I am glad I booked because it was quite busy at 8 o'clock, and it became even busier. The atmosphere was busy but relaxed and the décor was a clean and modern Mediterranean style. We both had starters and... More

Very good food - we were out with a large group of friends for a birthday and everything was fantastic. There was lots of little plates of food (meze) - some cold and some hot - and it seemed to just keep coming. Lots of variety and the service was great. A very friendly setting and very relaxed. They sold... More

With a party of six, one of which recommended this as an excellent Turkish restaurant, and well worth a visit, we ventured to sample. This was a busy place, plenty of keen waiting staff eager to impress, and immediately aware that many of the patrons were repeat visitors. Our interest? To sample Turkish cuisine aware of a scheduled visit later... More

I came tonight with my husband to break my 'fast' as it's Ramadan. We have been before but it seems that everything has changed? Not that I am complaining-a more extensive menu with so many options to choose from. We had a selection of Meze, from the tapenade as nibbles, to options including the Aubergine Purée, the Pistachio/Walnut Cheese Paste,... More

Absolutely fantastic food served in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. A vast array of Turkish wines to go with your meal make for a real treat as too often places concentrate on the food and then ask you to pair with spanish/italian etc. Great choices for vegetarians and carnivores alike with plenty of ways to share and try others food....
