My son and his girlfriend wanted to treat both sets of parents as a thank you. We all run businesses so getting everyone together is a problem. We were booked in for the 7 o'clock sitting. On arrival we informed the waiter 2 within the party would be 20 minutes late. As soon as they arrived the race was on.... More

Having had a great experience dinning at The Bluebell in Chigwell Village a couple of Sundays ago my wife and I walked along afterwards to Sheesh to check it out as a potential venue for a birthday celebration later in the year. We were greeted by a young lady and we asked about the venue being suitable for a party... More

I have eaten here three times now and each time the staff were polite and the food excellent. The venue attracts a range of individuals, some of who are regulars and others who are demanding, resulting in staff being delayed. If you like people watching, are in no rush and wish to enjoy good food, then this is a great... More

I've wanted to go to Sheesh for ages, just never found the time. So, after being invited by pal who has been before and sang many praises for the place, we ventured in this week on Tuesday eve. Wow, what a place, i had previously eaten many a Sunday roast here when it was Kings Head pub but i mean... More

I have been to Sheesh a few times now and it never fails to disappoint. The cocktails are cool and my favourite dish is the monk fish. The portions are generous and everything is so god damn tasty! I would never really order Turkish food but I do love it here. The Meze Starter is really good as you get... More

Just telephoned to try and book a table for two. The phone was eventually answered, abruptly! Then I asked for the date we wished to book and all I got as a response was "NO" and there was no effort what so ever to try and offer alternative dates or any manners whatsoever. If this is their service when trying... More

Not too mad about this place but my wife loves it. If she knows I have written a review the will probably divorce me. Will not doubt be visiting again. Food is just average

From the onset I should make it clear that Turkish food isn't my favourite cuisine. I enjoy it occasionally, but I wouldn't go out of my way to have it too often. My daughter choose this restaurant which has built up a buzz locally in Essex mainly from its clientele. First the food. My meze starter was very tasty and... More

We visited last night (26/7) after waiting a few months as it was always fully booked. You need to book well in advance. The food was amazing, we had the meze, garlic mushrooms and flaming saganaki. The starter came very quick and was well presented. There was a nice break in between courses. They didn't seem to want to you... More

Glam venue,glamorous people with a fantastic atmosphere. The Food is amazing the halloumi cheese starter is the best ever. All starters come with Turkish bread and is very filling, I have never managed to finish a main because of this, food is very reasonable but cocktails are a tad overpriced but boy do they do a mean piña colada!!
