Drawing on Turkish heritage and tradition, Shish’s ethos is borne out of a desire to create a hub as the heart of the home, centred around the fire hearth where cooking and families come together and share in the occasion. The spacious restaurant lends itself to large gatherings, smaller group parties and more intimate dining occasions, with the option of private hire. Its slick interior, ambient lighting and booth seating lining the parameter of the restaurant provide the perfect setting for any occasion. At the helm in the kitchen, the passionate team of chefs have created an inspired menu underpinned by true authenticity and rich taste. Highlights include Karisik Izgara – traditional mixed grill platter and loads more...


Shish is a one of the first Dry Bars (No alcohol) in Edinburgh, stocking all the fine wines available, Champagne, Spirits, Popular Cocktails and Beers but all containing zero alcohol substitutes such as Zero percent Rum, Whiskey and Gin.

    Food was really good. We are 3 adults and a child and ordered charcoal share for 2 and was more than enough. Service was a little bit slow, I think because it was Eid celebration and the restaurant was full. Overall it was a great experience and would recommend it to everyone and will definitely repeat it.

    Although food taste good and service was fair due to eid business, but food could have been served quicker and warmer. Had to wait an hour and 15 minutes for main course, also bread should be served warm with food not an hour before the actual meal. Overall, good experience, clean environment, well managed and tasty food. Thank you shish.

    Food is wonderful. We shared a few meze to start then had the kofta special and a chicken with cheese kebab dish. Everything super tasty and well presented. Main portions are large. Fantastic alcohol free drinks menu, however we didn't actually get any drinks until half way through our main courses! My no-groni once I eventually received it, was delicious. Service all round was pretty slow, even though the restaurant was not very busy, however the sole witness on duty was doing the best she could. This did put a dampner on an otherwise great meal. They really needed someone else to make drinks, as well.as someone to clear tables.

    Truly delicious food and superb service. The Kunefe dessert was new to us and is definitely not to be missed! Highly recommend to anyone who wants a break from Scottish fare.
