Gorgeous food, great prices

We went at the weekend and had a sharing platter consisting of homemade bread and tasty sauces. The main was loads of meat dishes. This has to be the best food I have eaten in a long time. The whole meal including soft drinks was less than £30. We were stuffed after (and my partner is a big... read more

Came with friends. The starters were nice we just had some dips and nibbles. Main was £11 a veggie kebab and a very small portion..quite dry too!! I have been to turkuaz on London road and for the same price if not cheaper price, you get such a huge portion with a big salad and a bigger kebab with more... More

This is a superb restaurant. Food is of an exceptional standard. I have been coming here for a long time now and very rarely have anything to moan about. I must have sampled almost everything on the meze menu and nothing disappoints. The owner is lovely and the kitchen spotess. The home made bread keeps coming out and that alone... More

I love to go out and have a great variety of food yet be able to walk home after without feeling stuffed. Lokanta has a lovely menu with interesting combinations of flavors -- like the sampler plates. Good wine selection too.

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

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 anywhere to be seen!!

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
