Turkish Restaurant and takeaway section also. Excellent Mixed Meze starters, cold or hot types. Main courses- decent variety all good quality. Have visited here a few times now and it never fails to please. Meat, vegetarian and Seafood available. Kebabs are presented beautifully with lovely side salad and rice or french fries (if you prefer).
You can wash the food down with Efes (an excellent turkish beer) or they have selection of Turkish wines (white/red) and European brands also.
Its quite an informal place, have visited mostly daytime and usually don't need to book, but not sure about evening.
A two course meal (expensive choices from the menu) with drinks for two people will be under £40. or you could try the lunchtime set menu which is much cheaper.

A Meze Restaurant that also does excellent Main Courses.
Two of us went there about 10 days back on a Wednesday night around 7pm. The place was previously Capille's Restaurant (never went there so not sure if the decor is the same as before). However the Restaurant is nicely laid out with wood floors and comfortable table seating arrangement. Spacious too with a bar area to right hand rear, and to the left rear a semi open plan kitchen.
The Menus were A5 sheets of paper but no problem as it was the contents of the menu we were interested in.
There was a large selection of hot and cold mezes, all the usual's and some more traditional also.
My partner and I being the greedy so and so's that we are, opted for Mixed Meze taster plate, it was a big, around 10 different cold mezes on a platter. Everyone one of them except for a very strong cheesy one (never had it that before or again) was absolutely amazing! Really exquisite meze's. This came with lovely warm home made semi leaven bread.
My partner had a Type of Beef Kebab which came with a bed of rice and lovely side salad and some more home made bread. I had marinated lamb on a bed of aubergine puree. The lamb had been tenderised also, so it came as nice lovely flattish wide strips of tender lamb. The Aubergine puree was to die for, a lovely mash of aubergine with some very delicate spicing and herbs.
We had ordered too much again and so took some Lamb home in a doggy bag. The mixed meze was really too big for two if you are having a big main course, but just right for 3 or 4 people.
With two Effes (turkish beer) and a southern comfort followed by a bottle of water, then after a couple of Turkish Teas we got the bill which was around £50. Worth every penny and can't wait to go again.
This new place is a shift from the other Turkish Restaurants, not being barb-e-que but more traditional with the vast range of mezes and a Special Chef's twist on some modern Turkish cuisine.

Sheikhs has been going for a while in Sheffield, but I went in recently because I heard it was under new management.
It is a takeaway at the front with a Restaurant area to the rear, so you can pop for a quick Shawarma (real meat doner) or Felafel sandwich to takeaway or sit down and choose from the menu.
There are enough traditional Lebanese and Middle Eastern specialities to choose from.
It was Saturday late lunch time around 2-2.30pm, the place was reasonably busy with a mixture of Restaurant and Takeaway customers, quite clean and spacious enough although it would probably only seat around 25-30 people max.
We had 3 mezes- Tabouleh, Fatoush and Moutabal, all of which were tasty and presented as they should be- dressings etc.
Then I had a Shawarma Wrap (nice bread) and the meat was good too. My Colleague just had the home made soup which according to her was spot on. The bill with a couple of soft drinks each came to less than £20, so reasonable value also.

A new Turkish Restaurant at the end of West street and the start of Glossop road.
Tried it 3 weeks back and overall was a mixed experience. However food-wise not as good as Zeugma on London road.
The place is quite spacious with the bar on the left as you go in, and the open plan traditional barb-e-que range next to it.
There was a good selection of hot and cold mezes and charcoal cooked kebabs as well as some traditional Turkish fare.
There was three of us, we opted for 5 mezes and two main courses. Meze's- Borek-cheese pastry, Sasuka- aubergine,onion and potato, Lentil soup, Another (can't remember the name) was a full medium size aubergine stuffed with onions, tomatoes and peppers, Hellim (haloumi )cheese, all of which were perfectly done.
The main course we shared a Adana (traditional minced lamb on skewers), which also came on big plate with salad, bread and rice, the kebab was a bit greasy for my liking, they may have even brushed it with olive oil before serving to keep it moist and 'shiny'-bad idea guys!! The other main course was Chicken Wings again this came with same extras, some of the wings were still pink/red in the middle (this is a big no no!!), you can pick up food poisoning from under cooked chicken. We did'nt complain because we were pretty full from the Meze's. The bill with a few soft drinks, Turkish tea and a couple of small deserts came to around £50. Because of the greasy main course and undercooked chicken I probably would not go back in a hurry.

Probably the only Moroccan restaurant in Sheffield.
Excellent selection on the menu. Went there last thursday, we had the meatballs and morrocan style sardines for starters. Then we both had the Lamb Tagine, which is a national dish in morocco. A large piece of lamb on the bone in a subtly spiced sauce which also had apricots and prunes, a really good combination. It came accompanied by some coucous and roasted vegetables, although traditonal moroccan flat bread would have been better placed here.
The deserts were excellent and the bill came to around £40 for two including a couple of soft drinks each.
I am looking forward to my next visit

This place is basically a Halal copy of macdonalds. The burgers and menu, presentation and packaging are all very similar to Macdonalds (the firm has half a dozen or more outlets in west yorks and lancs).
Good luck to these guys from a business point of view, they found their own niche.
The premises are quite new, clean and presentable. The service is friendly also. Although I don't go in for burgers (or macdonalds), my kids persuaded me to give this place a try on a weekend recently (dec 09).
I had a Mac Arabia ( a bigger burger in a naan rap) although it looked ok, it's taste was pretty bland and boring, I had a taste of the kids more typical cheese burger and 'big dripper' a triple decker burger with cheese, which were ok. We also tried the fillet of fish (equivalent) here and that was a dissapointment- cheap 'not so white fish' in breadcrumbs.
So overall we found only a limited number of things we liked, although there were some other choices, but not in a hurry to try them although would not stop me from going again.
The place can get quite busy and turnaround times for orders are slightly longer than macdonalds if you are comparing.

For anyone who is familiar with 'Shawarma' ( a type of a of real meat doner instead of the usual processed dogmeat you get on a friday night in town). Lamb or Chicken- both the real deal, although Lamb is the most traditonal throughout the middle east and in my opinion the best, the Kofte is good also.
All these are sandwiched within a freshly made naan (made in a real tandoori oven), salad and sauces, all made in front of you.
This is a doner you can actually eat in the day and you will keep going back. They also do Lamb Shish, Chicken Shish, felafel (V) and burgers etc.
Although for health reasons (saturated fat) I would recommend as a once a week (max) type of eat. But what an eat!!
I would say its less fatty than the Shawarma's at Maroush (edgeware rd) and probably one of only 2 or 3 in Sheffield that are worth having.
The premises are quite basic, its a takeaway with a few tables, but roomy. Prices are very reasonable and it is good value for money. I would recommend this place to students- for £2.50 you can get a freshly made Shawarma that will keep you going for hours.

Tried this place on a late lunch Jan 2, 2010. We were the only customers in there. There was two of us and we opted for the set menu lunch at £6.98 per person.
I had the veg spring roll starter and a king prawn main course, my friend had the veg tempura (big starter) and a chicken 'something' main course, both were accompanied by boiled rice. My king prawn dish was quite chilli but it did say chillies in the menu, so no problems there.
The quality of both dishes was quite acceptable and although i have had better, I have had a lot worse also. the Thai beer was good too, with another couple of waters the bill came to around £20.
The service was friendly and because we eat around London Road quite often, it did'nt bother us that the place was empty, I've seen quite a few diners in there in the evenings when passing by .
My only critiscms would be that 1) The Ala carte menu prices are quite pricey for the 'outlook' of the Restaurant, ie. casual type setting in a highly competitive area ( I can relate to this from a business point of view but there comes a point where you need to draw an invisible line). 2) The menu is bi-lingual (thai and english), this is not a problem however some of the dish names are quite awkard to pronounce with inclusions like 'prik' in them, and the name of the place it self thai 'Punna' reminisent of Ali G and Ghetto slang. Sorry for my ignorance maybe........

Went there last week (1st oct)with a work colleague.
He ordered the Saag Gosht with extra chillies, I had a taste of it, it was pretty good with a balance of spices and of course extra green chillies.
I ordered Bhindi Balti(okra), I remember asking the waiter if it was fresh and he said yes. What he forgot to say was fresh out of a tin. Although the spices were nicely balanced and it tasted quite good, it was definitely the tinned variety, which is not what I expected. However it would not put me off going there again as there were so many other delights on the menu.
They did'nt do chappatis, so we ordered tandoori roti which was excellent, hot and fluffy!
The side salad we ordered was not worth mentioning.
After the meal I went into the sweet centre part next door and bought some takeaway rasmalai and half a dozen gulab jamon which were both excellent the next day.
International drive, about 1 mile before Universal turn off, near the mini racing car track., Orlando
Was here in 2006, this place was recomended to me by a friend living in Orlando.
Gave it try, there was four of us and although one or two of the dishes were ok, there was no buzz about the food, that feeling you get when you taste something really nice. We had a mixture of meat grills and curries. The grills were of medium to good quality, the curries were nothing to write home about either, quite basic spices, nothing that tempts your taste buds.
There was quite a few Asian people eating there so when we walked in we thought it could be authentic/traditional food. The premises were a little shabby.
The worst part were the Toilets (or Rest Area), poorly maintained/quite dirty with poor hygiene. This surprised me as I thought Orlando being a major tourist city would have had more health inspectors and better hygiene procedures in the thick of the tourist area like this.
This place is 'one hit' place as you will not want to go back there for a while, if ever.
