3) Shawarma Grill
After a heavy night on the town, there’s nothing better than a kebab shop takeaway for the long walk home. If you’ve burned all your energy with a boogie at West Street Live or Molly Malone’s, why not refill the tank with some cheap but delicious grub from Shawarma Grill?
Located just a 10-minute walk from West Street, The University of Sheffield and the City Centre itself, this Sheffield student takeaway makes home in the heart of Broomhall. Head north and you’ll find picturesque green spaces and picnic spots galore in Weston Park, as well as its award-winning museum and local history exhibits.

In fact, with so many cost-effective options available, you’ll likely find yourself spoilt for choice when it comes to looking through their expansive menu…
Even if you’re a pizza aficionado, you’ll not be disappointed by Proove’s artisanal menu - where the proof is, quite literally, in the pudding. From award-winning Neapolitan pizzas to authentic Italian gelato, every single dish has been hand-crafted and selected to give a taste of the Mediterranean. Close your eyes, take a bit - and find yourself whisked away to Italy…
Located on Fulwood Road, Proove finds itself nestled alongside a string of independent coffee shops - including The Steel Cauldron, Nam Song and Thyme Café.

If that isn’t appetising enough, Proove’s authentic Italian dishes are such a hit - they’re actually the most popular takeaway in Sheffield, according to Deliveroo. From calzones to bruschetta - and everything in between, why not discover what all the buzz is about?
5) Ranmoor Friery
Fish and chips have long been a British staple - and having a good chippie on your doorstep is always a bonus. Most people will say their local is the best, but those staying in our Ranmoor student houses can boast theirs is with ease… Not only is Ranmoor Friery the highest ranked fish bar on Tripadvisor, it also has the highest ranking on UberEats too.
