My first visit and won't be my last. Reading some of the reviews before going cast a shadow over what to expect. Poor service, rude staff, its just a kebab place etc. I can honestly say that everything was great for us, the food, yes there kebabs, but you won't taste better and I've eaten a enough to know. The... More

Went there for my hubby's birthday and it really has gone down hill. It isn't as good as it used to be plus they have increased the price which doesn't match up to their website. The fish was very good but the vegetables and the bread and the picky bits were poor. At first i thought the bread for still... More

If your looking for somewhere to impress with great food and great service this is the place to go! Only issue is it takes month sometimes to get a Saturday night booking but worth the wait!

I visited Sheesh for the first time on the 10th February with my partner and couldn't recommend it enough. From the food to the amazing service, the setting and the live music in the cocktail bar. I would definitely say its one of the best restaurants I've been to in London. I have already booked our next visit in March.

Lovely restaurant with a quirky interior, attentive staff and amazing food! Is a little expensive, so would recommend for a special occasion, although the portion sizes are massive! First visit last night for a romantic valentines dinner, and would like to visit again soon!

Our bill came to £600, overpriced Turkish kebab, nothing special. If you are not dolled up the waiters treat you like rubbish, I wasn't dolled up with bling bling. The waiters act snooty, what for? They are waiters! The waiters ignored me totally. I rather take my £600 to another over priced snooty restaurant than spend it in Essex. It... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant was lovely. Lots of chandeliers and ornaments. All staff were pleasant and helpful. Food was amazing, the dips, meat, humus were all yummy. Great selection of cocktails. Only down side of this restaurant is that you only get a 2 hour slot to eat at the table and if you are wanting a three course... More

We were greeted at the door and then taken upstairs to a lounge where we were asked if we would like any drinks before our table is ready. The place looked really nice and you can see a lot of work has gone into making it look like it did. We were called a few minutes later as our table... More
