Description
At Lokkanta we strive to create a new approach to eating that will change many of the prejudices and myths surrounding the view of Turkish cuisine. We are passionate for Lokkanta to be a brand that stands for quality recipes with a great emphasis on healthy food. Excellent choice to suit all tastes, diets and pockets! We like to describe ourselves as a fast casual dining experience. This means a relaxed atmosphere with Turkish music played at a level in the background that will have you tapping to the beats, without being intrusive. A new funky interior with enough light to actually see your food. All our food is prepared on site by our experienced chefs using locally sourced products that are 100% British. On a cold winters night why not sit in front of the mangal. Watch the chefs cook and enjoy a bit of theatre. We have a semi private area towards the back, which can seat 8 comfortably and 10 if you're very close. We have changed the rules and moved the bar to revolutionise Turkish cuisine as we know it. Come and experience it for yourself.
