I first visited this restaurant last month and have been back nearly every week since. The staff are really welcoming and there is a great relaxing ambience in the restaurant.

Staff were excellent. Very friendly. There was a good choice of dishes on the menu. The food was delicious. I had vegetable cous cous ( gorgeous ) and my other half had lamb tagine. The lamb was done to perfection. No room for dessert.! Worth a visit.

Really enjoyed my second visit to this restaurant. We all had the 'Feast' at £15.95 a head and it was great value allowing a sampling of many of the dishes. Bottle of wine was well priced. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Restaurant was busy plus many were in the lovely garden at the back. Excellent menu and fair prices. Glad... More

This place does a great metze platter and has a lovely shish garden. The waiters are extremely friendly. The mint tea is great value and delicious.

We usually have a mixed starter and it is so fresh, vibrant and tasty, every element is... More

No problems booking, and our late change in numbers taken in their stride. The restaurant is small and our table for six was at the back, next to the kitchen and close to the back door to the garden. It was a freezing night and every time the door was opened we were subjected to an icy blast. As commented... More

Booked here last minute yesterday for me and my 4 friends, and was lucky enough to get their last table. The starters on the Menu are varied, but with a vegetarian in our group, we chose to share a couple of the large mixed meze plates (came with 2 baskets of warmed flat bread). All the dishes were deliciously spiced,... More

We went out last night for a wander down the Cowley Road and stopped at Le Kesh. It was busy, which is always a good sign, but rather than send us away or try and book a later table, the host made us feel very welcome and led us to their garden to wait. The Garden was a cosy, beautifully... More
