Decided to try Patoo as a Valentine's treat for my partner, as she is vegetarian and they offer a relatively large selection of veggie dishes. I booked 2 weeks in advance, as I was aware it would probably be very busy, as it was the Saturday before Valentine's Day.
We arrived at 7:30PM and were promptly seated to a nicely-set table with complimentary spicy prawn crackers. There was a wide variety of wines and spirits to choose from and two Thai beers (Singha and Chang).
The food menu has a good selection of reasonably-priced beef, pork, chicken, duck, seafood and vegetarian options. I decided on hand-dived scallops to start and grilled giant king prawns for my main, while my partner had spring rolls with sweet chilli dip and tofu and vegetables in sweet and sour sauce.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and were looking forward to dessert. The table was cleared and 2 small complimentary chocolates were placed on our table, we asked for the dessert menu and the waiter simply told us, whilst pointing at his watch, "there is no time for dessert, next table arrives soon". Let's just say we were not too happy about this, especially considering we had only been at the restaurant for an hour! I paid up and told the manager I was pretty disappointed, which was met by a brief 'Sorry, it's Valentine's weekend'.
We probably won't be going back due to the way in which we were treated, which is a shame considering the quality of the food and speed of service.
Last night we had the most amazing curry I think we have ever had in Sheffield. The food was extremely fresh, a great choice of menu and very reasonably priced.
The staff and manager were extremely polite and friendly and we did not have to wait too long for the food.
I have visited this restaurant on quite a few occasions now, and have always been impressed with the overall experience.
Recently I attended with a large group of friends for a birthday and was very pleased with the level of service we received. Not only were the staff very helpful with the booking of our evening, making it very easy, but on the night itself we were well looked after, even though they were incredibly busy.
The food is always very tasty and the atmosphere is fun and vibrant. The lunch and "early bird" menus are really good value for money and there always seems to be something going on such as special offers or interesting events.
I would definitely recommend this great independent Sheffield restaurant.
Balti King is the "King of the Indian restaurant". I like its services and facilities provided by them and the food is very nice. So I like it so much.
The staff of Balti King is good and food delivery is fresh as well as at the time. It's a very nice restaurant.
We went here for a meal and would recommend. Food tasted lovely, very good service, was made to feel very welcome and have been since with the same fantastic food and good value.
I thoroughly enjoyed last Wednesday evening, my meal being salmon, it was delicious. I will definitely come again and bring the family.
Thank you very much.
My partner and I went on Saturday evening. The place had a fantastic atmosphere and the staff were very attentive. We had a superb meal from beginning to end. The service was excellent.
Would highly recommend the restaurant.
It was delightful food and the service was outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
I agree! I ate here two weeks ago. My husband and I ate on a Monday evening and were surprised at how busy the restaurant was.
The food was delicious, as the previous reviewer has mentioned the portions weren't huge but definitely sufficient and not overpowering just really tasty!
We didn't book and I would definitely book on a weekend. Will be returning!
At first glance, the restaurant seems to offer a good variation of food on the menu, which is why it attracts.
However, the service was one of the worst I've experienced (over 20 minutes to get a drink at the bar and more than 45 minutes to actually be seated!). Have to add that half the cocktails were not available, as they didn't have the ingredients - but the maitre'd insisted we had to drink there to secure our table!
The food, when it finally arrived, was cold / tepid at best, and the tortilla wraps (with fajitas) were dry and stale. The waiter did his best to bring out hot chips - but it was not enough to save this from being a disastrous dining experience.
We went to Lokanta on Saturday 29th January and had another truly excellent meal. We have been four times so far and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves every time.
The atmosphere was vibrant but the service attentive despite the restaurant being full. We had a combination of meze and mixed grill, all of which was absolutely delicious. The flavours and quality were amazing and the presentation superb. The chilli prawns, Albanian-style lamb's liver and baked mushrooms with blue cheese were my personal favourites, but there was plenty of delicious choice for my other half, who prefers meaty dishes.
We particularly like the flexible menu choices, where you can have a meal with starter and main (and dessert but we are always full by then!), or a meze style dinner instead.
We will definitely be back!
My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to stumble across this restaurant on a Saturday night. We wanted somewhere with a bit of atmosphere, which we definitely got. We love eating out but tend to get a little bored of the big chains and if Cubana hadn't been fully booked and Silversmiths had been open we would never have experienced this lovely little restaurant.
We had a 10 minute wait for a table, which we took to be a good sign, and the place remained busy the whole time we were there.
I had a calzone and my boyfriend had the Romana Pancakes. The pancakes weren't quite what we'd been expecting and were probably a little too cheesy, it looked more like lasagne. The dish was bubbling hot, which we thought was a nice extra touch for a little bit of added entertainment. The thought of health and safety hadn't even crossed my mind. Maybe if they'd given it to a child I might have been slightly concerned but I should think an adult would be able to cope with the situation.
The calzone was really tasty and the character of the place more than made up for what the food lacked in presentation. I agree with a comment that the plates are quite small, not that I let that spoil the meal.
The staff were very attentive and friendly despite being rushed off their feet. We loved the decor as well.
We would probably try and book a table away from the door next time as we were sitting in a bit of a draft, but it is definitely a good little find if you want something a bit different!
This is a great restaurant - we have been going for years now and the standard and value is still as high as ever. Freshly cooked food... the most we have waited is 10 minutes!
Very professional friendly staff, too.
Definitely worth a visit.
As a regular customer of the Wortley Arms, I am very surprised at the bad review that I have just read.
My young family and I have never had a bad experience here. The food is of high quality, and locally sourced. The Sunday lunches are excellent. The service is spot on and the manager is very, very attentive. Nothing is too much trouble. The high quality meals are consistent and the price is not over the top for this quality of cooking. The chef is out and about speaking to customers and is always available to chat about dishes. He has recently won a TV competition, beating some of the top chefs in Yorkshire. Keep up the good work. We love your food.
Okay... so firstly don't go here!
I have nothing good to say about this place... the service was atrocious, with me and a friend standing waiting at the door to be seated for 10 minutes even though the restaurant was empty and the waitress was busy talking to the chef!
We finally got seated and then the menu was a bit of a shock with very little actual Japanese food on it. Although it is famed for oriental and healthy food that tastes 'amazing', it was so disappointing. It had a chicken noodle dish with tomatoes and chilli and it was so bland, you couldn't taste the chilli and it was clear that the chicken wasn't cooked fresh as it was dry and tasteless.
The noodles were overcooked and soft, and the price was outrageous for what we ordered. It was over 15 quid each for a glass of Coke and these awful noodle dishes. It's safe to say we didn't tip and we didn't return!
I can't believe there are no reviews for this restaurant already!
It is safe to say that this is the best Thai restaurant I've ever visited... if slightly on the expensive side, but it is definitely worth every penny.
I am addicted to Thai food and when walking past All Siam I thought it looked lovely... and it looks just as lovely from the inside as it does from the outside. The decorations are wonderful, as are the staff, although they were a little taken aback that we hadn't reserved a table, as the restaurant is tiny, so it's best to book in advance if you definitely want a table guaranteed.
I had the pad Thai noodles, sweet and sour chicken and some tempura prawns and they were delicious. I could have eaten three times as much because it tasted so good.
The drinks are expensive in there, so it's probably a good idea not to drink too much wine or anything.
The portions are enough for one person but they aren't too large, so if you have a big appetite then it's best to order a little more for yourself
I have nothing bad to say about this place! You should definitely visit!
I had heard many good things about this place from friends so I wanted to try it out. I went with my boyfriend on a Monday evening and the restaurant wasn't too busy, which meant we were seated immediately.
We both drank the 'infamous' caipirinhas (or however you spell them) which were lovely but I must warn you there is a lot of alcohol in them so if you are like me you will be drunk pretty quickly on these.
I ordered the duck enchiladas for starters and my partner ordered the calamari. It's safe to say we both thoroughly enjoyed these and then came the main course... I ordered a chimichanga but unfortunately they had run out, a disappointment until my chicken enchilada replacement came and was absolutely delicious! (My partner had the same).
The staff were friendly, a little unattentive as they were all young girls chatting most of the time, the atmosphere was warm and I can imagine on a busy night that it is much more lively and interesting to go for a meal there.
We really enjoyed it and would strongly recommend it to anyone!
I took my girlfriend here for a special night out one Tuesday, based mainly on other reviews of the place from this website. I wasn't disappointed! The head waiter was welcoming, friendly yet professional, and knew when to appear and when to stay out the way. Service was fast - though the place was very empty - and the food superb.
We started with some olives whilst we chose from the extensive menu - even from just these we could tell the quality of food would be great, as the olives were rich and fleshy, and we'd been given a massive bowl of them!
I had calamari to start, which was just thinly battered so the taste of the (fresh) squid came through. My girlfriend had an omelette with red onion and asparagus, also delicious. For mains, I had "Tagliata con rucola", which I highly recommend, and she had a good venison steak in an interesting prune sauce (from the specials board). These generously-sized dishes came with potatoes and roasted vegetables, and we only just got through everything!
After a bit of a pause we tackled some Italian ice-cream from the dessert menu - whilst not as creamy as real gelato, the flavours were brilliant, even just the vanilla. I finished with an Italian liqueur that I let the head waiter recommend to me - they have an impressive selection to choose from, as well as other spirits including a 1940 Scotch whisky at £80/25ml!
We'd washed the meal down with a £20 bottle of real Italian white wine - this was still at the cheaper end of the wine list, but it was a good dry white that wasn't being oversold.
All in all, a very pleasant evening in all respects. The bill came to around £85 for the two of us, plus a well-deserved tip, so this is not at all a budget venue. Nonetheless it was money well spent and I will be going back for another special occasion some day!
We went here for a meal on the 13th January in the afternoon. My husband had a spicy meat pizza and I had the lasagne.
His pizza looked like it had come from the supermarket and had the cling film removed and bunged in the oven. It was smaller than expected, looked manufactured, and tasted that way!
My lasagne tasted OK but was terrifically hot and caramelised around the edges of the dish, as if it had been reheated in the microwave. There was no salad garnish or bread with it.
The staff were all sat at the bar area drinking coffee and only one waitress was serving. She seemed really unconcerned when I pointed out to her that I had just eaten a piece of paper that was stuck on the bottom of the dish!
Our meal cost in total £29.00 and was disgusting. We won't be going back.
Aizah's Indian Restaurant (Attercliffe) - Abid Yaseen - 22nd January 2011

The service was accurate and on time. Staff were very polite. Food was delicious, definitely will recommend to friends and family. Mr Kana thank you for your service.
