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.

Good atmosphere, nice cocktails and decent service.
I had the roast chicken salad which had way too much salad dressing but had good amounts of chicken in it.
My husband had the sea bream which was tasty and much more appertising than my dish.

We went to the lounge after dinner for more cocktails, really good selection of music. The lounge has a nice vibe, maybe more designed for couples than a group.
Overall we had a good dining experience and we would go Tarshish again!

First time. Not much choice on the menu. Food overly priced for what you get. If you know food this is not worth the money. One off dining experience.

Great resturant although the service did let it down. Very slow to bring out orders and had to ask the waiter several times for the drinks menu. Overall really enjoyed the food and would visit again on a less busy evening

The girl on reception/phone provided terrible customer service , experienced treatment liked I’ve never seen before. Birthday booking treated like crap, told me certain time wasn’t available, then went on open table website and slot was there so called back and told her I booked it online. Refused to allow table size bigger than 10 and then when we were seated the table was set out for 12 guests, another confusing lie told possibly. Booking was for 645pm I arrived 7pm however prior she called me on my birthday answering the phone by simply telling me my booking is cancelled, no phone manner what so ever. I asked if any of my other guests had arrived yet and she replied by telling me my booking is cancelled , not actually listening to the question I asked. When I arrived she refused to seat us until the entire party arrived , made us wait in lounge for 1 hour. When we finally sat at the table we was told by the waiter that the table was empty and abaible the entire time. As we sat we was told we only have 1hr 30mins to dine, at end of meal we asked for dessert menu but was told we only have 8mins left. Once meal was finished we went to the lounge , I popped to the toilet and saw our table was still empty maybe 45mins once we’d left . All my guests and myself never experienced anything like this before in our lives , I find it very hard to see what the reception staff would gain from being so nasty and petty and it is wrong to treat people in such a way. I would like a response on this . Thanks

Atmosphere was nice, was very busy but staff wasn’t shying away which was pleasing to know. They make an effort here so clear to see they here for the long run and aiming to be no.1 on the high street

It was my daughters 21st birthday and this was a special family meal. The surroundings were elegant, modern and very clean. The service was fantastic, thank you everyone especially Antonio. The food was very good except for the pumpkin mash that came with the lamb shank....it was absolutely awful. My advice would be to replace it with potato mash. It was a shame that there was no flexibility to not have the pumpkin.
The Chef was very kind to put a candle in the Kunefe and write Happy Birthday making it very special for our daughter. Overall it was a wonderful evening, great food, amazing desserts especially the Kunefe and Baklava cake

The mac n cheese was very bland no flavour to it at all, some of the rice was burnt which really shouldn't have been on my plate.. Apart from that the food is mediocre, not the best Mediterranean I've tasted.

Loved this place! The ambiance is lovely, the food is even better! Loved every bite! Think its a place that would be ideal for a date! Definitely worth a try.. it is a bit pricey for the area but the way they have made the restaurant and the service and food make up for it.

First timer so didn’t know what to expect. The food was absolutely amazing along with the ombience of the resturant. The food was served to a good temperature with fusion of flavours. I will definitely be visiting soon and hopefully the Shisha lounge will be up and running.

The restaurant had a lively atmosphere and a contemporary decor. However, the food is served lukewarm. I had to ask for water three times before on my final gritted teeth request it appeared. After our main course we were asked if we would like anything else, it seemed like they were hinting at the bill. We responded that a look at the dessert menu would be nice. I would say overall it was an overpriced meal and sub-standard service for the mediocre quality. The food at Tarshish is just about average.

I had a date night with my partner, the scenery was lovely and the staff were too however food took too long to arrive, we waited Soo long for sauces and when I asked for the bill staff kept wondering off. Personally for what you get and what you receive it’s not worth it.

The restaurant is outstanding for décor, ambience and service. A fabulous local gem. Went on 1st January expecting it to be fairly quiet but it was packed and buzzing. Only downfall is that our table was at a position where there was no lighting so it was quite dark and difficult to read the menu which was in small print! Otherwise, a great evening.

Starter came out quiet cold.

Main was very dry.. (mixed grill)

Staff was very keen to clear plates, kept looking over our shoulder to check if we were finished. Felt rushed...

Booked this restaurant for joint birthday dinner with my friend. The decor and lighting is very good for a classy dinner. The service for our table started off shaky; mixed up orders, waiting for a bottlw for a long time, waiters forgot we asked for one. We expressed our annoyance with the service and then the manager personally came to our table to personally apologise and asked for the nature of our visit. We said we came for our birthday and asked us if we had a cake, we didnt, so he said we’ll fix that for u. 10mins later he came over with a slice of cake each with sparklers and candles and sung happy birthday to us. The attention to good service was amazing and honestly made our night!
