Great food and cocktails and such a beautiful restaurant and setting. Really felt like a celebrity with the gated entry and valet parking! Not very cheap but the food is great quality and the service was second to none. Had the garlic mushrooms, lamb chops and chips on the side. Couldn't eat a dessert as the first two courses were...

Always try and avoid this place. The most expensive kebab in the world! Wouldn't be so bad if it was the best. Staff have no personality. Drinks are all Overpriced. Stunning venue. Shame they don't really care about the customers. I think they are happy with the tourist crowd. Shame! Always leave here feeling my custom doesn't matter! Still! I'm... More

Very trendy full of beautifull young people, the odd celebrity (I was told) best ever gin cocktail. Good food but no port! I'm obviously too old!!

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
