1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Staff were treated awfully by the rude management who seemingly had no sense of common decency. I felt really sorry for all the waiters and waitresses who were very polite and attentive. If I could give zero stars, I would. The food isn't even worth mentioning as the terrible service by the management totally ruined the night.

The food here is amazing. Excellent quality and the portion sizes are perfect. There is a huge choices of dishes and dining styles including mezze or main meals. Great for healthier options as well. Will definitely be back - would highly recommend.

Saw a very good review in Waitrose magazine and as we were visiting Sheffield we booked a table. We were greeted as soon as we entered and were served by very pleasant young staff. We ordered some meze, and some main courses - I think in retrospect it would have been nice to be guided in our choice because I... More

It was quiet when we arrived at 6 but busy with great atmosphere when we left over 2 hours later. Delicious meal catering well for carnivores, vegetarians and Coeliacs alike. Excellent range of hot and cold Anatolian food with delicious desserts. Well worth the 20 minute wait for the hot chocolate pudding. Beer drinkers enjoyed the Effes beer.

On Saturday evening we initially booked our table via phone for 8:00pm and called back in 2 minutes to change our timings to 8:30pm. There was another person on phone during the second time but he confirmed that it was fine and we could be there by 8:30pm. It was a special birthday which I wanted to celebrate with my... More

We had meze to start and I had chicken kebab as main. Meze was nice - nicely presented and salad served with it was tasty. Chicken kebab was disappointing. I asked for large portion but got small pieces of chicken - that's it. It was just grilled chicken - a bit dry and tasteless. I commented to the waiter at... More

We went to this place after pre-booking our table for 2 adults and a child. We reached 5-7 minutes before our promised table time. On reaching the manager in-charge told us that we had reached late and hence the table has been given to someone else. We tried to remind him that we had changed the time from 8:00 to... More

a colleague recommended Lokanta to me after discovering my love of Turkish food and holidaying in Turkey. We booked for a Saturday evening and were not disappointed. Our waiter was helpful and friendly, offering suggestions and helping us make our choices. The menu sounded fabulous making it difficult to choose. I opted for lamb fillet on aubergine puree which was... More

Having just booked a holiday to Istanbul for September we found it fitting to celebrate by going to a Turkish restaurant and it succeeded in making us more excited than we already were! The food was excellent, it was fresh and full of flavour and brought those Mediterranean tastes to a rainy Yorkshire night. The staff were attentive and polite... More

I have been to this restaurant twice with a large group of friends and both times we have been treated with warmth, the food has been delicious, service great and prices reasonable.
