Great veggie option

We needed warm food and a great veggie set of options in Sheffield. Lokanata really met our needs. We booked for early Saturday evening but only 30 minutes before, we had good service and were glad we had booked as folks who turned up with out were not able to dine.

Visited to celebrate a graduation, booked a table for 10 on a Saturday night. The restaurant rang me in the afternoon to confirm numbers, all phone contact was very polite and professional. Table was big enough for all of us. Waitress recommended we try lots of smaller meze dishes to share, rather than a main course each - fab recommendation... More

Read a review in Sheffield Telegraph of how they've adapted their menu for allergies and my husband has to follow a gluten free diet. So we booked a table for New Years eve and were impressed. The place is bigger than it looks from the outside and the staff are lovely. Drinks reasonably priced and the menu interesting and different.... More

Went with friends who live in Sheffield and had eaten here a few times. They'd booked a table for 6 of us on New Year's Eve. Even though it was busy the service was perfect - not too rushed, but with enough time between drinks and courses to have a chilled evening. No pressure to turn the tables and no... More

Don't know! The food is great, interesting and tasty. Generous quantities and all freshly cooked to order. With vegetarians in our party, I can confirm they were pleased with the wide choice, as were the carnivores. We will go again and take friends.

We had been looking forward to dining here after having to cancel a previous booking some time ago. Well worth the wait indeed. Really welcoming polite staff. Nice ambiance to the restaurant too. The menu is extensive, and made for mouth watering reading. The problem was deciding what to have! Beautifully presented food. Fresh, vibrant and authentically Turkish. We shall... More

Good honest food, more homely than outstanding restaurant quality. Prompt, pleasant service with a good atmosphere. Clearly a lot of returning customers. Good value for money.

Really good Middle Eastern food, very enjoyable atmosphere and lovely service. Why do I have to make every review over a hundred characters, it bores me

I chose this place for a special occasion and it was more than perfect, I was very impressed..... and that's coming from someone who's difficult to please! The food is just amazing, so much to choose from, it was difficult deciding.... we wanted a bit of everything! The waiters were very helpful and friendly and at no point did they... More

Came here for a birthday meal on many recommendations and it didn't disappoint. There was 12 of us so we tried lots of things on the menu including the lamb special, meatballs, vegetarian kebabs, chicken kebabs and many of us shared the mixed grill. All of the food was outstanding, really fresh and delicious. The food was very reasonably priced... More
