A group of us who are Persian, Egyptian, and Irish are visiting Dublin and lucked out and found this place tonight. The food was fantastic. We had a combination of red lentil carrot soup (incredible), marinated chicken skewers, moussaka, starters and salads. Our normally boisterous clan were compelled to silence when we started tasting each dish. I must admit the... More

Absolutely love this restaurant! No drink license however there is a cracking wine vault around the corner so bring your own! Lamb chops are to die for make sure you get all the sauces. The pepper sauce was my favorite. Great service perfect food

Have eaten here 3 times now as a friend lives nearby. Food always so tasty and with prompt, helpful and friendly service each time. Best of all -"Bring your own bottle" with no corkage fee!

I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions with a group of friends and we always come back. The mixed platter to start is amazing! So much great food, the only downside is that you don't want to stop and leave room for the main. Byob is very handy Value for money is good, 33 for 2 courses... More

Love Keshk - a little quirky, fun place with nice friendly staff and really great food. Specials are generally just that and we'll tasty in my experience. Enjoyed s really simple but delicious grilled chicken and prawn dish with fantastic tomato sauce to really give it flavour. Beautiful. Healthy cuisine at reasonable prices in handy location just off Baggot Street... More

There was a few big groups so it was quite busy but the staff were good and handled the big parties well! The food is affordable but really tasty and the fact that... More

BYO Restaurant always makes this a bit different (If you are new to Ireland most of the restaurants are trying to commit business suicide by serving poor quality over priced wine ruining the meal and experience). Food was excellent and authentic, good starters range between 7 and 10€, i think the most expensive main course was 16€ Make space before... More
