Sorry to say but there is no direct way to do so in SQL Server. What you will have to do is, restore full last backup and restore transaction log backup till the time you have updated your table. if you don't have full backup and transaction log backup than the only way is to read your log file (.LDF) which you can't do it by your own. You have to have some third party tools. may be red-gate tool can help you.

Hello ramadadi,

you can either restore the backup of the database or use tool like Lumigent Log explorer to revert the changes
