Sencond time for a special occasion. Were upgraded to the private VIP room absolutely amazing ! The food and variety on offer is one of the best I have ever had! Excellent service and entertainment. Really worth a visit for a special occasion. Cocktails are rather pricey that would be the only negative. If you haven't been you have to... More

Was then taken to our table. The kebabs was amazing I had the mixed kebab which I struggled to finish. Service was excellent and the... More

Sheesh is owned by Sir Alan Sugar and has spent a small fortune on this old pub and is now a Turkish restaurant. The food is absolutely average and massively overpriced. Waiting staff are very pleasant and helpful. The clientele are just all out of The only way is Essex, underdressed, tattoed, pathetic, pretentious individuals, and that's just the women!!... More

Excellent choice for a special occasion as everyone is well dressed (there is a compulsory smart dress code). The restaurant is beautiful on the inside and out. On arrival we enjoyed cocktails in the bar upstairs whilst listening to live music. Once our table was ready we were taken downstairs into the well presented dining area. The tables are nice...

I went there with my business colleagues. Got there early so I was asked to go upstairs to the bar area which was nicely decorated and the fire place was added bonus. The staff was friendly and polite, food was delicious and really liked the presentation of the main course.....not forgetting hot and cold mezes for the starters. Will definitely... More

First visit last Friday with two clients (who are Turkish) and it was their recommendation. Food was excellent in quality of ingredients, taste, & generous portions. Service was very friendly & the restaurant has some quirky but cool features. All-in-all well worth a visit & whilst not local to me I will certainly go back!

I went here with my family for dinner. When we got to the restaurant we were asked to go upstairs to the bar to wait till our table was ready. The bar area was very well decorated and comfortable. The drinks were very well made and we all enjoyed them. Although we had to wait an additional 30mins then we... More
