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 cold and my partner and I had to eat separately as mine got sent back . He then got part of his meal cold and had to be sent back . They offered us a free Dessert and gave us a 10% voucher off the next visit that had to be between Monday and Thursday . Not really the days I dine out so useless to me .
I was disappointed to be honest . The quality of the food was poor to be honest especially as it's a little more pricey .
I've been there before and had great time .
It was not the same .
We left the restaurant area to go to the bar downstairs . They welcomed us to do so . We went to put something in the car , come back 5 min later and they said the bar is shut as its empty .
Not a great night at all .
Won't be going back I don't think .

Food quality - great. Decor - great. Service - great. I got a 3 course meal for 2 and it cost a little over £100. It's worth what u pay for. I would recommend it to others.

First time visiting. Ambience was lovely. Stunning venue. Nice menu. Venue too nice for the location however. The view of Wood Green is not appealing. It is actually out of place but nice for a special occasion to have this locally. Expensive for what it is as many cheaper Turkish restuarants in the area. Service was good. Steven our waiter was lovely. I had the chicken wings. Wasnt impressed with the marinate. Friends had mixed grill which was nice. Mac n cheese was good. Creamy garlic was delicious. Had the brownie for dessert which was dry. Overall nice evening but wouldnt rush back.

We came here for my friends hen dinner. I found the service to be welcoming with nice friendly chit chat with our waiter. The food is really tasty and quite filling. I would say reasonably priced and a great spot for taking photos and definitely a place for social media bloggers and foodies. Worth the hype! It was overall a great dining experience.

Me and my partner had an amazing evening dining at Tarshish, the service and food was excellent. In particular Kay really looked after us, he pulled out all the stops for my partners birthday and really went that extra mile to make it a memorable and special evening. I would most definitely reccommend this restaurant, it really is a fantastic dining experience.

I am not a newbie to this restaurant, in fact, quite the opposite. I love the food and service on a good day! However the other day was quite disappointing as our service was quite messed up and slow. We had four different waiters serving us, who at times got our order wrong, understandable. It was not busy in there, once again, quite the opposite. Yet our food was delayed by a further 20 Minutes.
Don’t let this deter you though, as the food is great, the cocktails are strong and the atmosphere is lovely. Especially at night.
I will be going again as I can not get enough of Mediterranean food!

Quality food. Quality ingredients. Nice setting. Loved the retracting canopy roof by the window.

A few nit-picks....

1) Weird pricing for sides.....£5 for a small Basket of chips! And £4.50 for FOUR slices of cheesy Garlic bread! Garlic bread all day! Chips.....it's a no from me at that price...

2) For a place of this standard, Wet towel wipes after the meal would be good.

All-in-all, very recommendable. Also the 15% was a lifesaver lol.

Absolutely amazing experience at Tarshish. Staff are very attentive and service is extremely quick. Portion sizes are generous and food is well priced and good value. Will definitely be returning very soon! The decor and ambience is absolutely stunning, the restaurant has a very luxury feel - it could definitely compete with top restaurants such as Sheesh in Chigwell.

Beautiful restaurant with amazing views. Helpful and attentive staff always willing to assist. Cocktails are wonderful as is the food. Food was so good I forgot take pictures!!! Prices were a little steep given I only ordered chicken wings and mac and cheese; however the atmosphere and venue made up for it.

Was a bit annoyed originally as on opentable it doesn’t specify that booking through here allocates you space in the lounge area not the restaurant. To guarantee a table in the restaurant you need to call and leave you card details for a deposit. However due to cancellations they automatically moved us to the restaurant area.
Food was amazing (lamb shank was so succulent - definitely a meal for two) and even though they were busy due to Iftar, we never felt forgotten about. Mains was running late however they communicated with us throughout. Overal setting was really pretty and we really enjoyed ourselves. Definitely would go again.

The vibe was great, as was the service! However, prices are more expensive than other places. I was also the only person out of the group to order something different, and the only person who had an upset tummy the next day.

Went there for dinner. i must admit food was really good. issue i had was the fact that, on my booking i requested a window table. this was totally ignored when getting to the place. The waitress claimed that there was no window tables available, as she was telling me this, i could see with my own eyes a number of table windows available with no one sitting on them, that really put me off the place. They can not accommodate requests clearly stated on the booking. when they are able to actually accommodate the request. Disappointment. Im not too picky on food. but am very picky on service, and lying through your teeth when the truth is right in my face is a really put off of the restaurant.

I have been to Tarshish a number of times and have never been left disappointed. The food here is incredible and on a sunny day they lift the roof. The cocktails were great and the staff were amazing. Thank you.

Great atmosphere, had to wait a while before being asked for drinks but waiter was apologetic and provided very good service throughout the night. Food was amazing although a little on the pricey side for a posh kebab. Would definitely return for special occasions.

Leading up to my visit to the restaurant I was very sceptical due to table numbers and my conversation with reception prior regarding spare seats for guests , however on arrival after quick conversation with one of the receptionist the matter was dealt with I would recommend the restaurant are more considerate of different circumstances to why customers may need a bigger table as paying customers the restaurant will benefit from group tables . The food was nice however I preferred the previous menu when sides came with the main aswell as a chilli sauce however this has all changed .food is expensive for what it is but for special occasions it’s bearable. The cocktails are really good and quite addictive.

I did not enjoy the meal nor the setup. Its overly priced for what you get. Service was good but as soon as we paid the waitress failed to give any eye contact and the hospitality stopped almost instantaneously.

Not worth the hype. Its over rated. Went on a recommendation. Never going again.

I've always liked Tarshish, their food is great. This time however, we felt ushered to leave even though our dinner bill came to £250 and we were a big group so understandably we would pace ourselves through eating and chatter.
Day time dining has no ambience or atmosphere.

Food was lovely. Bit pricey compared to others but the food was delicious and better service so im not complaining. Service was superb and superior to other turkish restaurants in the area. Very personal and they look after you. Only down side was the atmosphere was a bit dead, but this may have been because we went on a wednesday night, im assuming on weekends it would be more lively.
