After the nightmare visit in the other place I rang them as the very last minute idea about having dinner with my husband. It was my second time in Keshk and was best choice ever. Food was served in no time and Staff very friendly with big smile. We ordered prawns and stuffed wine leafs for starters followed by grilled... More

Both my experiences here, though different, have been very enjoyable. The service is great, and the food is delicious and generously sized. The bring-your-own drink policy is handy too.

Our first stop was just for a light meal of starters, we went back for a full meal. Both were great. The place fills quickly so a reservation better, we just walked in. BYOB. I found it quite noisy both nights but good service and food.

Not my favorite place for middle-eastern food in town, however it is a good option for lunch and the food is not too bad. Service depends on the waitress, some of them are pretty good while others are barely average. Mixed grill is the option that I recommend.

We chose Keshk because it was busy - usually a good sign. Beautifully cooked and presented food, served with charm and no rush. Fair price which reflects the quality. And b.y.o. booze with no corkage charge, so great value, all considered. We were full before we'd finished, so the waitress asked if we'd like to take home what was left.... More

This is the place for simple, really well-cooked and flavorful food! It's also great to BYO and have a more affordable meal - with no corkage fee! Our favorites are: falafel, hummus and pitas, charcoal grilled chicken and the lamb chilli meshwe. The rice and spicy potato sides are good too, and the portions are all generous. It gets busy...

I've been here so many times and never think to leave a review! Delicious food, great value and great service! Always get the tiger prawns for starter, garlic prawns for main (with spicy potatoes) and baklava for dessert-all delicious! Amazing value for money and BYOB makes it even better! Great restaurant, great atmosphere, fantastic value-my favourite restaurant to visit in... More

Great selection on the menu, food was excellent. Very crowded, not enough space for us at the table. And there was only 5 of us. Good value for money
