Former chip shop now a Turkish delight...
A former fish and chip shop in Bury St Edmunds town centre is preparing for its official launch tomorrow with a brand new look offering traditional Turkish cuisine. Abdullah Gokteke has opened The Sheesh, in Risbygate Street as he moves on the family enterprise that had been based there for ten years.
The Borough Mayor, Councillor Julia Wakelam will officially open the restaurant on Thursday January 26 at a celebratory event for invited guests.
Abdullah said: “My chefs’ specialities will be traditionally barbecued food over a charcoal grill. This is an ambition I’ve had for some time and the time was right to move on from the fish and chip shop that had been run successfully by family members previously. I’m looking forward to welcoming old and new customers when we open.”
The restaurant will be open both lunchtimes and evenings catering for up to 68 diners.
Mark Cordell, the Chief Executive of the Business Improvement District Ourburystedmunds, welcomed the restaurant’s new look. He said: “This is a great addition to the Ourburystedmunds dining offer adding to the eclectic mix of independent businesses in Risbygate Street. The premises look extremely smart with all the improvements that have been made and I wish The Sheesh every success.”
The Sheesh is situated at 9 Risbygate Street and is open seven days a week. To make a booking phone 01284 700002.
