A Turkish restaurant has joined South Grand’s international boulevard. Sheesh Restaurant, at 3226 S. Grand Blvd., opened doors Dec. 3 in a completely renovated former Chinese restaurant. Co-owners Baha and Safa Marmarchi are Iraqi, but they fell in love with Turkish cuisine while visiting and living in Turkey. The brothers hired two Turkish chefs to ensure their restaurant’s authenticity.

In the main dining room, gleaming, low-slung copper tables offer seating for 50 with wide, cushioned chairs. Customers can select from a menu of kebabs, lamb or chicken biryani and other entrees, many of which are served with fresh flatbread or rice. Side dishes include soups, stuffed grape leaves, kibbeh and falafel. House-made desserts feature traditional Turkish sweets like knafeh, a sweet cheese pastry covered in crunchy phyllo and sweet syrup, and baklava studded with pistachios and walnuts. Sheesh offers Turkish coffee and tea service, as well as ayran, a salty yogurt drink.

Sheesh Restaurant is open Monday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Here’s a first look at what to expect when you step inside:
