17 Must-Visit Restaurants in Sheffield
From famous Indian street food to award-winning cuisine, and some of Yorkshire’s most-loved dishes, there’s plenty of choice in Sheffield
0.2–0.5 Krynkl, 294 Shalesmoor, Sheffield S3 8US
0114 299 1539
An urban restaurant influenced by nature, visit Jöro for their forward-thinking approach to modern dining. Their small plates are bursting with hyper-seasonal Scandinavian flavours and their five-, eight- or 10-course tasting menus are the perfect excuse to try as many as you can fit into one sitting. The saddle of Wortley hogget, pickled seaweed, raita of wasabi and wild garlic has caught our eye.
307 Ecclesall Road, Sheffield S11 8NX
0114 268 3029
Having served the foodies of Sheffield since 1967, Ashoka can confidently lay claim to being the city’s oldest Indian restaurant – but that’s not to say their culinary offerings are outdated. They keep their menu fresh with popular creations such as Karamelised Kashmiri containing their slow-cooked custom caramelised onions, and they only use 100 percent British Red Tractor-approved chicken breast meat in their curries.
207–215 Glossop Road, Sheffield S10 2GW
0114 296 0246
Beju Sheffield promises luxury dining and entertainment in a truly unique atmosphere. Their contemporary Asian cuisine fuses traditional flavours with modern cooking methods to create dishes that look almost too good to eat. Nestled between their illuminated maple trees, don’t forget to take snaps for your Insta feed.
503 Ecclesall Road, Sheffield S11 8PR
0114 266 2843
This place pushes the boundaries of Japanese cuisine and offers dishes that you won’t find anywhere else in Sheffield (and maybe even Japan). Their meals are freshly-prepared, by hand, every day. The spiced tuna starter is always a good choice but meat-eaters can choose from lamb, venison, duck and pork for their main. Browse their veggie and vegan menus too.
Brocco on the Park
92 Brocco Bank, Sheffield S11 8RS
0114 266 1233
This Edwardian villa by the park has been transformed to offer you a stylish dining experience, whether you’re taking a pitstop for a coffee and a chat or you’re enjoying a weekend away with a loved one (choose from one of their cosy rooms and make a night of it). Breakfast, brunch, afternoon tea and Sunday lunch – they do it all. But we recommend the small plates including vegan fish and chips (seaweed wrapped tofu, pea veloute, crispy potato and vinegar). Celebrating? The Brocco banquet menu is indulgent.

Zammuto Steak and Grill House

Today his love of Sicilian-inspired food lives on at Zammuto Steak & Grill house. Meat and seafood dishes are aplenty on the menu – all best served with chunky chips – but if you’re struggling to choose, order the mixed platter to share (served with your choice of three sides and two sauces).
