Tarshish is a newly opened Turkish and Mediterranean Grill sister restaurant to The Banc based near Turnpike Lane and Wood Green. The restaurant is truly a fine dining experience to visit and is well recommended in the heart of North London.
This restaurant has two floors, hosted for people to enjoy freshly made direct from the kitchen, but people mainly visit this place with their families and friends to eat from the rooftop views. A really nice atmosphere and view when the weather decides to be good in London.
Last Saturday, 10 of us food bloggers got together to gather up for a food event held at Tarshish. These people were those who shared the same interest and took various photos of drinks and foods. The experience I had was really fun meeting with other food bloggers, as everyone got what they wanted to try out. Taking various photos of the dishes available for their social media channels, we also had a good laugh trying to capture the best mac and cheese shots, one hilarious moment was when one of the guys could not get over the fact how good pulling a mac and cheese was!
This was the view in and around the rooftop. You can either request it to be opened or closed, still a nice perfect view and space for when the weather is warm and sun’s out.
Berry Crush (£6) & Bee Sting
Mocktail on the left was filled with Fresh Strawberry, blackberries, blackcurrant, pomegranate seeds, lemonade, and simple syrup. A delightful and refreshing drink, especially when the weather’s warm that day.
The Mixed Grill is filled with Cubes of lamb, chicken and Adana shish. Served with mac & cheese, tomato salad and red cabbage coleslaw. This choice is always a must at a restaurant, wherever you go people always order mix grill as you have both chicken and lamb to eat instead of just one or the other.
Although people had ordered 3 mixed grills. I opted to be different and went for the Kulbasti (Grilled Lamb Steak) (£20). This was again served with mac and cheese and salad for the sides. Certainly, it was an enjoyable feast but mainly it was desserts that caught my eye!
How great does all of these above desserts look right?
I chose the hot chocolate brownie, filled with melted hot chocolate. It was divine, served with ice cream and garnished with fresh strawberries. This dessert is one I would have over and over again! Haha!
The others were called Warm Baklava, Tarshish Kadayif, Tiramisu and Peardrop.
The owner of Tarshish was friendly and easily approached, also opened up rooftop for us and showed us around the restaurant as well from the top of the roof. The waiting time for our food was not too bad, same for our mains either.
Loved the mains and starters presentation on how there looked, was truly spot on. Everything was captured really well and worth sharing with others. Although each food looked amazing, some main dishes are pretty pricey, especially if you’re going for steaks, but the overall pricing of their main dishes ranges between £11-£38 and starters from £5-7, which is reasonable for a restaurant and rooftop dining experience.
The atmosphere in Tarshish is very family oriented and a friendly environment. I saw plenty of different generations enjoying themselves, so it’s not just for the younger generation. The experience was really good. I got welcomed by their staff members and served as and when needed. The food at Tarshish is all Halal, which is a huge plus and definitely a well worth recommendation for this newly opened restaurant.
Overall, I gave Tarshish a 8.5/10.
