Unfriendly pretentious staff, only interested if your a face on tv. Way overpriced for what it is...food looks impressive till you realise over half your plate is a salad!!! I can think of many other places to go that have way more class than this!...More

£24 for an average chicken shish? Very rude pretentious staff who continuously rushed us throughout the meal. Much better alternatives around, shambles.

I visit sheesh regularly and it’s always 10/10. food is amazing, the staff always recognise me and ask how I’ve been! Makes me feel very welcome! The stunning building makes every outing at sheesh special, after leaving I always look forward to my next visit!

Pretentious, tacky, rude staff especially the Father of the owner who I think thinks he's Al Pacino and overpriced. All very wrong. Stay away and go to Deraliye in Cockfosters if you want great Turkish cuisine. Classy, good value and very pleasant staff.
