“Amazing Turkish Cuisine”
Review of Shish Restaurant

Shish Restaurant
Price range: USD 42 - USD 70
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 April 2017 via mobile

We found this little gem late in the evening as we were leaving Southend-On-Sea.
I always feel guilty walking into a restaurant half an hour before closing time, but am so glad we did.
We had halloumi and humous with an amazing Turkish flat bread to start. We might have ordered extra !
The mains arrived which have been pictured:
Moussaka with Bulgar Wheat (rice).
Iskender (out of this world)
Kids diner lamb and chips.
The only way to finish this perfect meal for me was a Turkish Coffee and Baklava.
The girls had some very nice ice cream - high quality ice cream at that!
The staff were so accommodating and very child friendly.
Having had all that, our bill arrived topped with Turkish Delight and all in for less than £16 a head!
This is a destination restaurant with limited parking outside.

I visited with a friend as a last minute dinner. It was really great flavourful food. The service was quick and everyone was really friendly.

Fantastic food, fresh and full of flavour. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. The lamb shish was super tender and the authentic Turkish deserts were delicious. Looking forward to visiting again.

We have eaten at Shish a couple of times now, first time was just after they opened and I couldn't review it as they were not listed on here at that point. On both occasions we have had a really excellent meal. The first time I mentioned to Mustafa the owner that I thought the lighting was a little bright, sure enough on this visit he had changed it and the place has now got a much nicer feel to it. The restaurant is quite large with an open kitchen, Mustafa is a great guy and really goes out of his way to ensure you enjoy yourself and that you are happy with everything. If you like Turkish food it is a must.

The staff were attentive and yet not at all pushy the food was amazing well worth a visit, I would advise o go asap as at the moment it's a hidden gem when he word goes out it's going to be the place to eat or sure. The bill came and that was very good too. Top marks we will be back.
