The night I visited, with a couple of friends, there was a tremendous thunder storm, resulting in a power cut! Luckily we'd just got our meals!
Mixed clientele, groups of friends, couples, walkers, tourists and locals - all ages.
Was quite busy, seems to have it's regular crowd, even midweek...get here early!
Favorite Dish: I had a hot steak sandwich, with salad which was good.
My friends had sausage and mash, and beef pie, which they really enjoyed.
This was the first Japanese restaurant in Sheffield. It advertises itself as serving contempory Japanese cuisine.
The main dishes are Sushi, Noodles and Tepanyaki.
A smart venue (previously home to The Mango Tree)
I've now eaten here about 4 times - once on an expenses paid treat, then to celebrate friends birthdays. Each time we booked for Tempanyaki, with a set menu , of fish, meat and veg dishes.
The staff were very welcoming, and attentive.
We were led to the Tepanyaki grill area. After a starter of miso soup, the main event began!!
Tepanyaki is more than just eating!! The preparation, cooking and serving of the food is all part of the experience.
Our chef entertained us, with his knife skills, as he speedily sliced veg/and fish into thin slices. juggling ingredients, and expertly chopping slices of food to land in your bowl. His top party piece was probably dribbling alcohol around the bar top, then igniting it , so that the flames ran around the bar top. (This didn't happen at the 2nd visit - wonder if it had become 'too risky'!
Fresh ingredients, the seafood cooked in this way, was unhindered by overpowering sauces etc, and tasted as it should!
Along with the spectacle, the food was excellent. I can't wait to visit again!
Favorite Dish: As this was my first experience of Japanese food, I wrongly assumed that it would be mainly raw fish and seaweed!
We all agreed that the Tepanyaki experience had been a great night out. I particularly enjoyed the grilled oyster (again, another 1st)
Besides offering a wide variety of food, the wine list was extensive, with a selection of Japanese beers and spirits.
As I was driving, I didn't get the chance to sample any...even more of a bummer, when it was all being paid for! :-(
However, as well as a list of soft drinks, there was a selection of freshly squeezed juices. I had orange, and also carrot and ginger, which was very tasty.
Somewhere to visit for a special night out! Good for groups of friends, works night out.
Downstairs, I'm told that it is more suitable for couples wanting to enjoy a romantic meal.
If you want to try the noodle dishes, there are a number of noodle bars that have opened recently in the London Road offering a cheaper alternative

Favorite Dish: Spent one of my birthdays here, enjoying the tapas menu..great variety! Party menu was about GBP13.50
Can just pop in for a drink or two too!
Whilst it's location may be off-putting to some customers, this restaurant is well worth a visit. Secure parking ensures customers can have peace of mind whilst consuming Chinese, Thai or Indian dishes from a great selection available at this buffet. It would be hard to find a better selection for such a variety of tastes.
Open 5:00pm until 10:30pm this buffet serves over 30 hot dishes, as well as a salad bar and desert selection. The restaurant is not licensed so only soft drinks are available - no need to nominate a designated driver!!
Favorite Dish: The Dhud Semai was fantastic - worthy of a return visit on its own!!!
I found this restaurant suited our party well as we had preferences for either Chinese/Thai or Indian - this suited all our needs. And with eat as much as you like for £8.90 (under 13s £5.50, under 5s for free) it was good value for money too.
Not in the Centre of Sheffield, but I believe worth a visit, we actually booked our Christmas dinner here, but unfortunately the menu was not Thai in that occassion. The service is great, the food beautiful and the staff are lovely and this restaurant is highly praised for providing genuine Thai meals, served and prepared by Thai woman, who moved from Thailand specifically to work in the restaurant. A large airy room, nicely decorated, clean and in a lovely setting with the church across the road and some ncie stone buildings, you must book as it is often full.
Favorite Dish: Green Curry... well presented, gorgeous subtle taste, 'pure niceness'
The place is quite simple really and even though I put it in the restaurant section it is really more of a fast food take away. There is an area inside to eat at a like breakfast bar type of situation. The main reason why I have added this place is that the food is excellant....it is asian cooking and from my observations I would say 90% of customers are asian....come on folks doesnt that tell you something???? dam good food ; )
Favorite Dish: I am not a big lover of kebabs or is it the kebabs are not big lovers of me.......
but I have to admit the kebabs here are amazing...try one but be warned they are huge
Another little gem of a restaurant that you might walk past a hundred times, buit never eat in. From the outside the restaurant looks a bit cold and souless as it is tiled floors and marble topped tables, but once it fills up, it is a very familiar atmosphere becasue it is so small. So small in fact that you are practically in the kitchen - you can watch the chefs prepare your food!
There is a great menu, mainly skewed towards Italian sea food, some vegetarian, some meat and a specials board.
What else, Oh yes it's bring your own wine! Huzzah!
Favorite Dish: I had a delicious seafood chilli linguini and my girlfriend had a swordfish steak in an olive oil sauce and both were delicious.
Seating outside in a pleasant paved area near the peace gardens in the centre of Sheffield.
Favorite Dish: I have to confess I've not got round to eating here yet but when I saw these customers relaxing outside I wished I had ( I just grabbed a sandwich). The chap on the left of the picture seemed to be happy enough. There are more reviews on this page from the BBC - http://www.bbc.co.uk/southyorkshire/greedycow/food/restaurants/ha_ha.shtml.
There are absolutely loads of restaurants in Sheffield cooking every food imaginable.
Most are children friendly but bettrer to always check first.
Pub food can usually provide excellant value for money with offers like two meals for five pounds. Apersonal favourite of mine for pub food is the "Crosspool Tavern" situated at Manchester Road, Crosspool S10 they do a carvery meal with high quality food and choices in pleasent surroundings.......it has a reasonable seating capacity and is not usually need to book.
Indian take aways are usaully open to about 12-1am and are good value and quality food.
Balti King @ Broomhill is a licensed Indian restaurant that is open until approximately 4am.....situated Manchester Road, Broomhill S10
By far the superior tapas bar in Sheffield - the menu is extensive, well prepared, delicious and good service from friendly staff.
The atmosphere is definitely Cuban inspired without being tacky, with subtle revolutionary murals on the yellow pastel walls, and huge pine tables and chairs and a selection of exotic cocktails to match the summery Carribean atmosphere.
Phone ahead to check what is on, as it gets noisy later with frequent live bands (Tango, Salsa, Latin Jazz), occasionally dancing - so call if you are planning romantic meal - particularly at the weekends.
Easily the best tapas in Sheffield - give the more prominently located La Mancha on West Street a miss and come here instead.
This restaurant is worth a trip to Sheffield all by itself. In April 2003 it was listed in the Sunday Times Magazines as one of the best three places in the country to eat Indian food, and the walls inside are adorned with national and local reviews of the amazing food.
The food is, I have been informed very authentic and is different from what you come across in most Indian's; it is a lot drier and flavoursome and a huge variety of ingredients.
The chef Mrs Nirmal is an absolute gem of information and I would heartily recommend listening to what she says - if she recommends a dish, take it as it will be worth it! In fact, her manner edges on the brusque at times, but it is really because she wants the best for you! A good way to eat her is to let Mrs Nirmal choose for you - I promise you you won't be disappointed!
Favorite Dish: You must try the curried parsnips, and if you want a lamb shank massala, you better phone a few days in advance and take five friends!
For a lunchtime meal on value for money these pubs take some beating. The menus are informative and there is plenty of choice for vegetarians and, more unusually, the meals with less than 5% fat are also marked out - so no excuse for pigging out! Some good beers, too. There is a terrace garden upstairs and families are welcome before 6pm.

Favorite Dish: Ham and eggs with chips and salad. Bottle of Chardonnay wine.
Last time i visited Sheffield, I got a nice meal at Debenhams at Meadowhall.
Its what I call 'intermediate food' not fast food like Mc Donnalds, but not sitting for hours while the food is caught and cooked.
I am not positive whether this is the chippie we went to ... However I have a feeling I remember making some quip about the name 'Millenium' being grossly dated ... Good chips tho.
Favorite Dish: Chips
