Fantastic Food - Staff were great

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.

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

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

My daughter and I dined here in January quite by luck when other restaurants in the area were booked out. We enjoyed it so much we took my wife back there a few weeks later. Excellent staff, great food. Highly recommended.

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. Steak and chips for our hungry student guest and... More

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.
