We LOVE Sheesh. Exceptional service, great cocktails, phenomenal live singer, some of the best calamari and monkfish I've ever ever eaten, seasoned and cooked to absolute perfection and despite having a very busy restaurant we didn't have a mega wait which was a nice surprise and I have to say each and every staff member was cheery and professional. I... More

Sheesh is a brilliant Turkish, the meat cooked here is spot on. My lamb chops were to die for, perfectly cooked. The setting is brilliant, it's different and that's what a lot of people have decided to complain about here. The decor is quirky but I think it makes it what it is. The restaurant is spotless and the food... More

To start with I was greeted with a gentleman offering to park my car.. that's a first! The appearance of the place is just incredible, you can tell how much money is invested in this restaurant. Well looked after. We had a table booked for 6.30pm and unfortunately they were 20 minutes late which was frustrating as we'd arrived 15... More

I have visited Sheesh a few times over the year with friends and I have never been disappointed by the wonderful food. I decided to take my family for my birthday and after raving about the food for so long I was worried that it may disappoint them. It did not. They loved it. The waiters who managed to move... More

A friend was kind enough to treat me to lunch here. I had dined here previously but not in the last three years or so. My first experience was ok but nothing to write home about so I had not gone back since. Living locally I had heard good reviews of Sheesh so was very glad to give it another... More

What a great night out. We had very attentive staff who looked after us from the moment we arrived until we said our good nights. We found the food very good with excellent sized portions, and after dinner we went upstairs to their nightclub and was entertained by a wonderful band the place was full of people enjoying themselves, don't...

We visited Sheesh on Friday 18th November for my wife's birthday. A very enjoyable experience from start to finish. We arrived an hour before our table reservation, and were greeted well and directed upstairs for some pre dinner drinks. They had a good selection of classic cocktails as well as some of their own. Nice ambience, a modern bar vibe... More
