Best Lamb chops in Dublin

I have visited Keshk on a number of occasions Omer the last three years. The BYO with no corkage is great. The food is fresh and wonderful. The grilled Lamb chops are tender and cooked to taste. The choices are good and satisfy must tastes including veggies. The staff are very customer orientated... read more

This is one of the places that everyone should try at least once if in Dublin! Delicious tasty marinated chicken, lamb, Keftas and Falafels. This is a mix of middle eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. Everything looks, tastes and smells fresh and it is very very affordable. They don't serve wine but there is a wine shop, so actually great value... More

A super restaurant which offers a broad mix of Middle Eastern foods. Don't look beyond the 'Platter for 1' starter which is more than enough for two! The choice of mains is very good with a range of prices to suit pocket and palet. The lamb meat balls are exquisite. Portion sizes are generous which meant that, most unusually, we... More

Great mediterranean food with a middle eastern twist.The food was very nice indeed with more than the average vegetarian options.Icing on the cake was that we could take our own wine and there is a great wine merchant round the corner with plenty of choice.Everyone enjoyed what they had.The staff were friendly and service was good.

Enjoyed a Good Friday meal here and was delighted to be able to enjoy our BYO wine with our food even though it's a "no alcohol" day in Ireland! There is no corkage charged here and I was pleasantly surprised by the nice glassware on the tables and the fact that our wine was both opened and poured for us... More

A gang of us went to Keshk on Good Friday as it was a BYOB restaurant, which worked our really well (no alcohol can be sold in Ireland on Good Friday). The staff were lovely and so friendly. They supplied us will all the wine and beer glasses we needed and the rest was up to us. The atmosphere was... More

I'm originally from Germany where turkish or greek restaurants are to be found around every corner. And most of them are excellent. So I was more than pleased to find this little gem. I've never had that good mediterranean food in Dublin and I bet you can't find a better place. The prices are fair the staff are very nice...... More

This is how it's done, food, service, layout everything. If I had one minor criticism, try introducing a new dish every now and again so it doesn't get tired. Otherwise all other restaurants could learn from this place.
