The service is beyond poor, we booked a table five and when we arrived the manager seemed shocked. He took us to the back of the restaurant and quickly pulled two tables together and grabbed a chair which was not part of the restaurant furniture and left without any providing any menus or explanation, the extra chair was lower than...

Found this through a link on the O2 Academy website where we were going later for a gig. The food was very good (the usual Middle Eastern fare) but the service wasn’t quite as slick as you might have hoped for. Very friendly and polite but a bit forgetful. We had to chase up one dish which had been forgotten... More

Went with my Girlfriend and her family and had a wonderful evening. The atmosphere is lovely and the staff are very friendly. The menu provides plenty of options for vegetarians and has true authenticity. Each dish that we had was really tasty and also not the usual sort of thing I would eat at home. Thoroughly enjoyed eating here and... More

I had heard good things from friends and so decided to give Le Kesh a go. Very friendly staff and generally good atmosphere. The food was good - big portion sizes and very tasty. The mixed starter was particularly nice!

From reception to paying the bill, a relaxing and pleasant experience. Had a delicious lamb tagine in the garden area. Surrounded by a dozen or so shisha smokers, and seated on traditional home seating, surrounded by carpeted walls and a ceiling of typical morrocan cloth ceiling, the garden area was lovely and warm and a lot more interesting than the...

I visited Morocco and really enjoyed the culture and of course the food.... Therefore it is very easy to like this restaurant..! There is a hidden garden decked out to teleport you to the Northwest Africa..! Enjoy your food first in the front of the restaurant and go the the garden for a relaxing coffee and CHAT..!!

We went as a group of 8 for my work leaving meal. Unfortunately when I turned up they had no record of our booking and kept making out that it was my fault. However they did find enough space for us as it was only 7pm so rather early in the evening. The waiter was then abrupt with us the... More

Booked this for an early dinner ahead of a concert at the O2 due to Tripadvisor comments. We weren't disappointed, the food was great.

Really lovely food served today. The harira soup, meze starter and meatballs with mixed grill were all lovely. Highly recommend.
