It was our first time eating at this restaurant on a recommendation and it definitely won’t be the last. The food and service was all amazing. One member of our party chose Seafood pasta and they said it was the best they had had. The baklava were also to die for. We cannot wait to visit again.

We had a good experience. Nice food, good service and brilliant live band playing in the background. We only missed having some of the Turkish culture on their music playlist instead during the band break they had this loud cheesy songs playing in the background.

Hi: 4 of us went to Dem Shish on Wednesday evening and it was absolutely fantastic. The food, ambience, service and overall atmosphere was fabulous. The waiters and staff couldn't do enough for you. I have told lots of friends about Dem Shish - honestly it was such a lovely evening and the background music of Paul Watson just topped the evening off. SUPERB.

Amazing meal for my birthday with amazing atmosphere. Had a magician roaming the restaurant stopping off at tables to entertain which was brilliant. Only critique is, waiters/waitresses didn’t check on table and one of my party members had to got to them for further side orders which was then only received when meal was finished. Shame but love the place and the food etc. amazing cocktails too.
