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.

Great venue and atmosphere and food!
Bit slow on service and cold side - for the price you’re paying you can’t afford to go wrong like this.

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.

Kam the manager of Tarshish was exceptional today especially when he brought over the cake with a surprise message on it for my girlfriend! We throughly enjoyed our visit to the restaurant today and would highly recommend it anybody who are looking to have a very special dinner.

This is quite an unusual venue for the area but in a very pleasant way. I am not sure this would have worked had the food not been of such good quality and beautifully presented. The staff all appeared to be very warm and efficient too.

I visited Tarnish last night with my partner, the decor was lovely, and the atmosphere was great but had no clue about allergies. I suffer from severe life-threatening allergies that lead to hospitalized visits. I requested for the manager as none of the staff spoke English, the manager reassured me that the meals I had chosen had none of the ingredients I'm allergic too in them.

Unfortunately, I think it was all a lie, towards the end of the night I felt very itchy in my mouth and all over my body, by the time I reached home I was unrecognizable( my face had swollen so much that you couldn't see my eyes) and I was having difficulty in breathing.

I am really disgusted in their customer service in keeping their customers safe from allergies.

I will be taking this further!!!!

The menu is not the same as what open table has. They have take most of the sides out from their meals and you have order them separately meaning it's an extra cost. Not happy with my visit this time.

Initially, upon arrival we we were made to sit and wait at the bar for 20 minutes before they found us a table, even though I had made a booking.

However, once seated, we were moved to a table with a nice view and ambience. We felt that because of our wait, the gentleman serving us went out of his way to ensure our food was made promptly and we were attended to properly. The personal customer service in itself turned it around for us in the end else we wouldn't have recommended neither returned to Tarshish!

Food was good and had great presentation but it was nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to Turkish food! Although the setting was calm and subdued just the way I like it even though most tables were full!

so I've been to tarshish before and really loved the menu because it included a side like mac and cheese. also it included colslor and salad which has been taken out of the meal which has disappointed me extremely me and my friends wernt happy to see our food arrive. I don't like this change. I know many people I have spoken to don't like this new menu change. your now charging very expensive prices for a small portion of food. I want the old menu option back which came with a variety of sides like salad not plain cabbage.

great for a date night food is reasonably price, waiters are very polite and helpful and they have a live band where you are seated after your meal which creates good vibes, went with a mate for a pre xmas dinner get together and she loved the spot.

Definitely one of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time. The interior of the restaurant was lovely & the food was absolutely amazing! Bit pricey but definitely worth the money you pay. The only thing that lacked was the hospitality of some staff, the lady at the front desk wasn't very welcoming, no smile when we arrived or left, just seemed unbothered, which I felt was quite rude. However, we didnt let that ruin our evening. Overall, great atmosphere and food!
