Top notch

Everything about Lokanta was very good. The food was excellent (try the liver!!), the atmosphere was great (very relaxed) & the service was superb (attentive but not smothering). All in all very impressive & the children's menu is brilliant. Proper food without fish fingers or chicken nuggets... read more

As a huge fan of Turkish, Lebanese and Greek cuisine, Lokanta had been on my to do list for a while. It was a huge disappointment to say the least and by far the worst of its kind in Sheffield. We went for a variety of mezze. The cold platter was small, average, largely tasteless and overpriced. The prawns and... More

I ate here midweek with my wife. It was early when we got there and plenty of tables to choose from, but it soon got busy. The menu took a bit to get your head round, did we want a full on meze (lots of small dishes) or a conventional starter and main course??? The choices were plentyfull and after... More

I visited with a few friends, the food was ok. We had the Meze and thought the portions were small. There were a few other tables in however it lacked atmosphere and needed some music.

Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Mezze was good. No big variety regarding the main course (no Ali Nazik, Eskandar Kebab etc in the menu). The desserts were wonderful. Baklava with ice cream was great but the hidden gem was the Baked Tahini; wonderful.

Went for dinner for son's birthday treat. Gorgeous food with a lot of choice and generous portions. Daughter's child portion of pasta was generous enough for an adult and really tasty. It isn't cheap though and the drinks were really expensive!! One other small criticism is that though the staff were polite and courteous, they could have been a little..... More

We went to this restaurant on Saturday(28th) for my husband's birthday. There was nine of us altogether and we all had a starter which were ok, but the main meals were mediocre. I had sautéed chicken which was very dry and found it strange that most of their main meals are served with potatoes and rice. My husband had chicken... More

I was not sure when we booked as I had never even heard of Lokanta, I needn't have worried, from start to finish the staff were welcoming, the food was fantastic, I had the lamb off the chefs specials, fantastic.

Went with another couple and had a lovely meal. Really good choice of food to cater for Vegetarians and meat eaters alike. We had starters, main and puddings, but could quite easily have had a number of dishes as mezes to share. We might do that next time we visit as there is so much choice it would be a... More

The food was below average and I do find Zuegma on London Road offers much more quality than this place ever will. If its an authentic, good value, excellent service you are after in a turkish restaurant in Sheffield I would most definitely not go to Lakanta, there are much better turkish restaurants in Sheffield. My poor experience has left... More
