Disappointing- no veggie moussaka and the dish I had was a plate of tomato mush. I did comment that it wasn’t the best & was told they only do veggie moussaka at weekends.

WELCOME We come from the tradition of where many cultures are embraced from different cuisines under the one roof of Ottomans. What we provide is the combination of all those different cuisines blended in one with great taste and flavour. The rich selection we have included in the menu varies from deliciously prepared fresh and delicious meze selections to most complicated dishes that require the process of slow cooking of traditional styles. Shish Restaurant strives to provide the customer the perfect taste in every dish the only way to find this out is to come and taste our fresh, traditional food. The somewhat legendary Shish restaurants focuses on Turkish meat dishes and can be found halfway street Sidcup. Established in 1993, Shish has expanded to include köfte and kebab houses. The Shish Restaurant is spacious and bright dining with a large glass shopfront that allows light to stream into the modern dining room. Outside there is a secluded smoking area, screened off by plants and a sun canopy. Also we provide gluten free , halal, and started delivery.
