A group of us used to visit this restaurant regularly. The food and service was always spot on. However the last few visits we have all noticed a steady but surely decline in service. Such a shame as tge Sheesh was such a friendly restaurant.

Been wanting to go here for ages after my daughter told me about it. Was visiting so at last managed to go and not disappointed. Tandoori Lamb Chops to start which must be nicest Lamb Chops ever tasted. Followed by Balti Chicken Shaslikagain so tasty must be best Indian ever been to. Wonderful attentive staff nothing to much trouble. Very... More

Food tasted nothing like we ordered, even the chicken did not taste of chicken? The onion was raw and crunchy. Pilau rice was boiled rice with a couple of colored rice thrown in? I've ordered many times from here and visited regularly but as of tonight's disaster of a meal I'm afraid I will be taking a break from visiting... More

It was so cold when we went in that we had to move, asking the waiter to move was a struggle in itself, as he asked 'what's wrong here,then!'. Clearly not in a good mood, but grudgingly he moved us. The food didn't taste great either, had to wait a long time too, staff were very rude and arrogant. Not... More

The food quality was good here and overall feeling of the venue was really nice, however I felt that the staff wanted us to hurry up in eating as they kept loudly talking about needing the table we were on for a large group coming in soon after us.

We froze while in the restaurant. I had to put my coat on. Other diners also had jackets and scarves on, and coats over their legs. Unbelievable in what is supposed to be an award winning restaurant. I complained to the so called manager/owner who was arrogant and dismissive. An awful experience- will NEVER EVER go there again.

I'm basing my review on a takeaway. I went in to order my meal and the bar was a mess. I was ignored for nearly 10 minutes then the guy said take a seat someone would take my order. I'd been in there nearly 20 mins and was ready to leave then our order was then taken. The food was... More

This is the first visit to the Sheesh, and for an award winning restaurant, it was a disappointment. The decor is nice, and staff were pleasant. The menu, however, was uninspiring and very dated. The food tasted bland, I have never had to season an Indian meal before. Other Indian restaurants in Llanelli serve far tastier food, such as Taj... More
