Nice location, nice venue, nice upstairs bar. But at the end of the day you are paying for it all through over priced drinks and kebabs. Piling on the salad to make the portions seem bigger doesn't disguise the fact that you've just paid £30 for 4 pieces of tasteless monkfish lined up as a kebab. £50 for 4 drinks... More

Music was too loud... staff were rude, when we complained about the food not being up to standard, we were told no ones ever complained before and they were not prepared to accommodate us in anyway... then the chef came out and was very rude and threatening to us... We will not be going back... very bad service and attitude... More

Do you go there to eat or to pose. It really is in the pose category where conspicuous consumption , supercars and posturing are almost essential. I am not impressed by minor Reality TV characters being there. It is extremely overpriced in the 'real world'. Food portions are large, main courses come with a selection of mainly salad items, chips... More

Went there for my birthday a group of 5....the service was good, the food was good, just don't think it warrants the cost, especially on the drinks.

I came to have a light snack at Sheesh about 12 noon. My friend and i just wanted a starter. We were told that we needed to have at least 3 starters if we wanted to stay. We got up and left. The waiter would not let me have another side salad with my piazza as i was allergic to... More

Mains - Tavuk Sis, Cubes of chicken breast marinated then grilled with salad, bread and rice. The chicken was so succulent and juicy, the salad was fresh and the rice was great!... More

Ate here for the second time on Saturday with friends. It's worth the 1 hour journey from South London!! Booked two months in advance and could only get a 6pm time slot. Had a drink outside before dinner-cocktails are approx £14 and then dinner. Chicken and Lamb mix!...hmmm... Then we had some more drinks in the bar upstairs afterwards-had the... More

We are regular customers of this place as I love the food however I feel that the service level has been dropping... 1) booking - I would suggest to email or text once the booking is made so customers are clear that the booking went ok. We called a day before our booking to ensure that all good and confirm... More
