My favourite in Oxford

Le Kesh is amazing! I have been here on 3 occasions, each time with different parties and each time we have been very happy with the whole experience. I cannot fault any of the food that we received- all authentic and freshly prepared! The mezze board is my favourite as you get a little but of... read more

This is an excellent Moroccan restaurant offering cheap tasty eating. Starters are outstanding and tagine also very tasty. The choice of beers and wines is good. Prices are very reasonable and service efficient. The décor is a bit basic but what do you expect! Recommended.

I booked the restaurant for our Company Christmas Dinner. Being a small company we wanted somewhere friendly and a bit different. Booking was very easy and we had a couple of special meal requests that they were very happy to accommodate, even offering alternatives. We had the Festive Sharing Menu, all the courses came out very quickly and there was... More

We pre booked this table in advance which was wise as this restaurant does get very busy! We arrived at 5.30 when the restaurant was still fairly quiet. The food was absolutely incredible as was the bottle of Pinot Grigio we ordered. We also got given a Pina colada on the house which was a nice touch. I ordered the... More

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
