Slightly uncomfortable

I would only visit this place if you like the whole 'Essex' thing. Food was ok but nothing better than your average Turkish restaurant anywhere else. I found the waiting staff very friendly and attentive. Overpriced for what it is though. Lots of fake tan and judgemental stares!

My husband and I visited Sheesh last night for our Anniversary. We were welcomed straight away and seated outside for a few minutes. Our table was ready quickly. The service was impeccable and staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was to a very high standard and huge portions! The dessert was amazing and I would happily recommend this... More

After hearing rave reviews about this restaurant, I thought it was time to give it ago. On arrival, the venue and restaurant is stunning, with friendly staff and a nice bar upstairs, which we had a couple of drinks in, before heading downstairs to the restaurant. We had a selection of the starters to get things underway, which were enjoyed... More

This place should be shut down. The staff are rude and arrogant. Women are not respected here and the staff are violent. So unless your from towie or only way is Essex, really suggest you don't bother going.

Visited this restaurant last Saturday for my daughters birthday. Food was good and a lovely area to sit outside which we were fortunate enough to be able to use. However, I had brought birthday cake which I had made for my daughter, we asked a waiter if he could kindly present it to the table after the meal, refused flatly,... More

I have never been so disgusted with a place so much in my life! 14 of us girls booked for dinner which they were very rude and awkward about the reservation on the phone (should have got the hint) the group was split due to the 'large number' food was ok but basically trying to be a posh kebab house...

After having a lovely meal with some friends I witnessed a couple of the staff manhandling a group of girls before closing time. They were being verbally abusive to the girls and trying to intimidate them & actually physically manhandling them. The girls explained they we're waiting for a minibus to pick them up as it states closing is at... More

Having read mixed reviews didn't know what to expect. We had only heard good reviews so decided to book this for 10 for a mid week lunch for a special occasion. We were not disappointed. The sun was out as you walk from the gated car park past the outside tables to the conservatory where we were having our lunch.... More

Would never go back as the staff are the rude and arrogant, the decor in the venue is lovely however when we arrived we ordered drinks at the bar, being a Turkish restaurant my friend asked politely to the bar tender if he is Turkish to which he replied angrily "don't insult me". How embarrassing these were my guests I... More
