First visit here and we were not disappointed. In a very nice area of Sheffield near the University. Lovely food, very helpful and friendly staff, especially Emily, who was our waitress. Even tried the Turkish coffee with a taster Baklava, very nice too. The lamb cutlets were delicious, served with sauté potatoes, tomato, pepper and rice. Will definitely go again... More

Came for a small birthday meal and the food was delicious and the wait wasn't long either! The waiter was very attentive and friendly, unfortunately we didn't catch his name but it was on a Wednesday night (14th sept) but he came to the table with a smile each time and nothing seemed too much hassle for him. We stayed... More

Must confess, only came here because Thyme Cafe was full. Glad we came, made a really nice change. Pleasant service, very broad menu. Starters were great, fun to order a mix and the vegetarian meze was very tasty. Good main courses: generous portions, well flavoured, nicely cooked. Lamb and aubergines in various guises was good, a generous portion of seabass.... More

Along with many of others, we were convinced by reading the recent review of this restaurant in the Waitrose magazine to pay them a visit. One of the best Turkish restaurants in England? I think not! At least, not from our experience. What we did find out was that it was fairly average fare and certainly not up to the... More

We love Lokanta. The food is always of a high standard and so Mediterranean it is like being on holiday. Great Turkish wine list also. Fabulous!!!!

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
