Tarshish represents the east meeting west in a marriage of modern aesthetics with traditional sentiments. The euphoria that arises from the theatrics of tasty Turkish cuisine and the therapeutic shisha can be discovered on the shores of the UK and in particular, Tarshish. Despite the modern, chic surroundings which keeps guests comfortable; with every bite and every puff, they are reminded of the fusion of centuries-old cultures, the passage of time which it took for Tarshish to come into existence.

We arrived for a birthday. The lady on the phone Edita was extremely helpful and kind and I cannot fault that. However when we arrived, the menu is rather small, we were all planning on having waygu steak. There were 4 of us and we particularly wanted steak, otherwise we would have gone to Meat and Co or the Banc. There was no steak available, waygu and rib eye and no ribs either in stock! As there was not much to choose from anyway we were all very disappointed. We were told by our waiter that the reason is because the other table with 12 people or so ordered all the steak. I don’t really expect that on a Sunday night right before Xmas to run out of steak and we were all disappointed. The food was ok, atmosphere was nice but I much prefer the customer service in the banc and the food overall. I don’t think Tarshish quite has the substance and humbleness that the banc has and I will not be return there anytime soon.

Really good customer service provided. I was a bit disappointed with the food as the previous times I went, it was much better. They have changed the menu and there is not as much variety as there used to be. The restaurant itself is lovely and the atmosphere is really nice but the food was a lot better back when it first opened.

Great food/drinks, beautiful layout and attentive staff. Slight miscommunication with one order, however that was quickly resolved. Highly reccomend the king prawn starter! Definitely shows some of the typical, high-end restaurants up.

Very good service. Food was standard Turkish menu which was executed well but slightly pricey as you can get a lot of good food in this area but you’re paying for the venue. Good vibrant atmosphere, slightly nosy for a catch up with friends.

Food is always perfect here just very gutted at some of the changes they have recently made to the menu. Lamb shish gone as apparently out of season and they have removed TARAMA as well. I don’t like hummus or tsatziki and literally only enjoy a Greek or Turkish with TARAMA. I genuinely wouldn’t of driven from Canary Wharf to Wood Green if I’d have known :(
Food is ridiculously tasty though and very tender cuts so for anyone else that isn’t as TARAMA obsessed as I am....a perfect restaurant!
I did ask the waiter if I could nip across the road and get some but he refused.

Love love loved this place and just thinking about going back ASAP. The customer service was excellent from entering the venue until we left. Food was amazing😍 I had the lamb chops mmmmm only con was that they do not give you steak knives( yes I know it wasn’t steak) but once I put it in my mouth it melted. Beautifully prepared and the baklava with ice dessert was to die for. We were so full from our mains we only got the dessert to try the combo. Well worth it! Oh and their cocktails are lush.

Enjoyed this restaurant so much that I dined with my friend the following day too. Food is fresh and tasty, service is incredible, each member of staff is welcoming. In my opinion it's one of the best Turkish, middle eastern restaurants I've been too.

Everything about Tarshish was amazing, from the moment you walk in and greeted by your first employee who then signals up to the restaurant your on you way. Another employee greets you at the entrance to the restaurant and shows you to your table. Service was great with all staff being attentive & giving time to answer questions about the food. Food was just delicious. The place itself was very up to date & trendy. You would never think you were in Wood Green! They are also opening a car park under the building for customers and a shisha bar on the 3rd level. We booked for a Thursday - was busy but not overcrowded. Once properly established this place will be packed out! We will definitely be back. Only improvement I’d say was needed is a couple of cracked tiles to be replaced.
