About

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.

The food was really good. Really well seasoned and surprisingly very flavourful. Good portion size for the lamb ribs, however we did have to wait a really long time for the food to come out, after we were already being rushed to make our orders because apparently there was another reservation at or table after. We didn’t even bother to get desert after our dinner, because it just felt like they were trying to rush us out. If it wasn’t for the fact that we felt rushed, it would’ve been a perfect experience, because the food was great.

The staff were so kind - even helped my get a good pic! Told my about the good lighting. Ahaha. The food was great too and affordable. Tarshish is actually very underrated when in fact it need more recognition. Always have the best time there. Need to go there again. Missing it already.

i came with my mum to celebrate her birthday. once we entered the building all the staff we came across were super friendly and helpful, the setting was so beautiful and fancy. it was our first experience in such a place and definitely worth the excitement. food was absolutely delicious, one improvement is probably make the salmon dish more vibrant and colourful maybe? but other than that it was amazing. we also enjoyed the two waiters coming to our table to deliver dessert and them singing happy birthday to my mum. thank you for your delicious food and warm service tarshish :) x

The food was excellent. Waiters were nice and friendly. However, nobody was wearing a mask cover (neither waiters nor customers when leaving the table to use the bathroom) which make the experience less pleasant.

I had a wonderful evening at Tarshish. From my greeting all the way through the evening. The food was amazing, and so were the cocktails. The atmosphere was lively, a great place for a special occasion or a date night.

We both had two different lamb dishes .. both raw.. like chewing into a baby sheep.. was dark so couldn’t really see what I was was eating.. I can see what trying to do with the ambience but I would rather go uptown for the price .. if the food was nice it would be lovely .. but cold bread with a knob of hard butter .. it’s a shame we had a bad experience.

Really lovely service even down to the car park and having someone monitor the cars, made us feel that much better! Waiters were great and topped our bread and butter which was delicious as well as just overall making us feel at home and a there was no such thing as a dumb question. Food came at a good time and the cocktails and mock tails were exceptional! Will definitely return!

The staff are attentive and the food and cocktails (including mock tails) were superb. The music level was perfect as it did not overpower conversation at our table.

I will certainly be returning again soon.

Service was awful but that could be blamed on the “eat out help out scheme” as to how busy they were.

We had to constantly request for tissue from different waiters. The first and second waiter totally ignored our request and was provided with tissue by the 3rd waiter.

The food was very very average and over priced. Over priced in the sense of the location of the venue and what they served.

Towards the end one of the waiters offered to take a picture of my husband and I which we accepted.

However I left my retainers wrapped in tissue on the table.... After the pictures I immediately went back to the table and asked the waiters for the tissue with my retainers, they mentioned they have thrown it away and that they would look for it.

They did not find my retainers. Fair enough it could have looked like rubbish in the tissue, but the way it was handle, we had to ask them to look for it and they did not seem to care.

I have been to so many restaurants in my life time and this is one of the worst, mainly because of the basic food and service.

Food - 3.5/10
Service - N/A
Location - 5/10 (at least they have a parking lot)

Would not recommend.

I took my friend for her birthday dinner. We had a lovely time. The rooftop was open as it was a hot evening. The service was excellent. Adnan was very attentive and friendly. He offered us a limonceli shot on the house before we left. I read some bad reviews.. but decided to go anyway. More than pleasantly impressed. I would go again and recommend. Food was delicious. Portions are good.
