Nice

Nice restaurant, beautiful day so we sat outside which was very pleasant. The food was good and we had a nice lunch. Quite expensive for Turkish food but we would definitely go again in the summer.

Staff were rude, insensitive, tactless, naff, vile, inconpetant clearly terrified of the king cabbage manager who proceeded to shout at one of the... More

Saw on Twitter that Sheesh had won the Best Fine Dining award again and immediately booked to come. Had the best experience, from cocktails & live music to great food & service this place is the complete package. Highly recommended!

Sheesh has to be one of my favourite Essex restaurants. From Decor to Cocktails it offers everything I look for in a place to dine. The Monkfish Kebab is my absolute favourite and a dish I never get bored of eating. Service is always on point and the staff are friendly, helpful and know exactly what they are doing. I... More

My review nearly got 5 stars the only reason it didn't is once the resturant got very busy at about 8pm we were forgotten about a bit. Our wine had run out and we sat in front of our dirty plates for ages. However the staff here are so friendly that it almost didn't matter and I'm really fussy. We... More

Visited Sheesh, ordered prawns £26 turned up cold, told waiter who argued then sent them back, same prawns turned up again no warmer. Asked for the manager Dylan who was very rude and intimidating and refused to do anything at all. No apology. I will NEVER go again. What a load of hype for crappy service and overpriced food!

Been here a few times now and it just gets better & better. The food is really good and the portions are very generous. When we came with friends last week we went to the upstairs bar after eating and the jazz singers were great. Couldn't fault this place, seen online they won a best fine dining award again this...

If your idea of a meal out on a wednesday night, is eating over priced, pretentious kebabs, then this is your place! Enjoy sitting next to someone and not being able to hold a conversation because some c list ex towie dj is banging out the tunes so loud its embarrassing, again this is your place! Rude staff, overpriced food.... More
