Good place to eat
4
This is a great american itailian diner restaurant.

The food is more oftern then not good and is reasonably priced its not an more expensive then the other restaurnts that are available at centretainment.

the portion size is great and don't feel short changed for the money.

They a proper bar and can offer most drinks of your choice ( as long as they haven't run out) which makes it a bit better then some which can only offer a limited menu.

The restaurant is clean and well staffed where they are friendly but not over the top friendly.

The only issue is going at the weekends as there can be a wait unless you book in advance, this is when the bar comes in handy while you wait.

Cineworld Cinemas
Sheffield | Cinemas
Great cinema
4
This cinema is ideally located its close to main roads and has its own free carpark which is better then the city centre cinemas. Its main competitor is the cinema at meadowhall.

However i feel that its better due the the big full monty screen which is great to see the lastest blockbuster film on. Also the small premier screens are very comfy with the reclining seats.

The prices are average cinema prices unless as mentioned by others you invest in the cineworld pass which is great if you go regulary ( at least twice a month) then it becomes a cheap night out (or day).

Its also good as it has a ben and jerrys stand and the popcorn is not to bad either.

Basic

This branch is similar to the others Kfcs in the city. I have had better food at this branch as it wasn't too greasy and was hot. it was when there was nothing on at the arena.

The staff seemed ok not overy friendly but not out of their way. They keep the tables fairly clean and toilets satisfactory.


The loaction is great for the cinema or the arena but have to be warned if there is something on at the arena then this branch gets very busy and the service is slow and the restaurant becomes very messy very quickly.

The food is average and shouldn't expect anything when going.

Terrible
1
Only go if starving!!

The food if you can call it that was luke warm at best. The service was terrible as they didn't care. Also they messed my order up, its not that difficult unless you are more bothered about the previous night like the person who served me was.

The place was messy and rubbish everywhere, wasn't clean and this themed carried on to the toilets where only one had a working lock and only was basin had soap.

The food maybe be cheap but its the last time i will be going as that experience put me completly off.

Wasabisabi
Sheffield | Japanese Restaurants
Great Resturant
5
This is one of the best places to eat in the city. It offers a different take of the east asian cooking, but if you like chinese then you will love this place.

I think it is the only Japanese restaurant in the city centre and offers something different to chinese food.

Whether you are sat in the main restaurant area or the tappanyaki room the service is excellant.
The food is also mouth watery good and even though you are full will want more.

The main restaurant prices are average leaning towards expensive but its worth it.

The tappanyaki is a great for a special occasions as its not cheap but the entertainment vaule makes it enjoyable.

Variety on a night out
3
This venue has been in sheffield a few years now but still struggling against its more established counterparts. When first opened if was fresh, new and exciting attracting lots of bands, dance and a large crowd.

Now they have seem to shift their focused to dance and not as many live bands. they do still have get some known live acts but not as frequent. on my last visit i found that the bar was overpriced, £1.30ish for a lime and soda!! ( i was driving)and not overly busy.

An average night out but depends on your personal taste, best to check to web site out to findout what is planned for your night out.

Great Place
5
This is a great place for great food. Its in a great location and offers a great experience if wanting noodles. The menu has a good varitey of soups, noodles and sides. there are also some rice dishes.

The portion size is very generous and is a struggle to finish unless you have a very large appetite.

the food is fresh and nicely presented.

The place is simple and almost canteen like, but this shouldn't deter you from visiting.

The food is good value and they do a lunch time menu as well which is discounted and slightly smaller portions, if you choose off the lunch menu.

Good Italian
4
This italian is upstairs in the oasis and is tucked into the corner, slighty out of the way which in no way reflects the resturant's worth. if anything it does make you feel like you are in a proper resturant rather then somewhere to eat in a shopping centre.

Once sat at the table a selection of bread and olive oil is brought, which is very authentic european resturant behaviour, this adds to the experience.

The place is near to the cinema and also good for end of a shopping day.

Not likely a resturant i would go to unless going to be at meadowhall due to the location in relation to where i live.

The food is good and not badly price.

Good experience
3
The resturant is a lovely quaint building, just across from the winter gardens. The resturant is small and unless going in at off peak times it would be worth booking. there are tables over two floors but not very spacious and can be either seen as cosy or cramped.

Also may end up with the table in front of the door which is fine if the weather is good but when the temperature drops you do feel the draft and may sit eating with your coat still on.

The prices are not cheap and could find better resturants for the same price or cheaper. Not to say its bad food just average for the price.

Good location for the theaters, crucible & lyceum.

The Globe
Sheffield | Pubs
Good Student Bar
4
This bar is in a great location for Sheffield Hallam students that are based in the city as walk out of the main building and its right next door.

The prices are very reasonable and even better if you are prepared to pay a quid to get the yellow card which gives discount on certain drinks. The card lasts for a year and can also be used in the other scream pubs.

The pub also does food which is average pub food and is good for filling a hole and is reasonably priced. The menu has a fair few choices.

Also in a good place if do a pub crawl towards the leadmill.
