Brilliant food and amazing atmosphere. I got the seabass with an amazing spicy tomato sauce. Can't wait to come back again.

Excellent restaurant with great staff with a great menu, particularly the prawn starter which I have ordered every time I have been. The meatballs and potatoes are also incredible. Baclava for dessert! Yum

We called in here over the Christmas break on spec for a spot of lunch whilst wandering in Ballsbridge. The place wasn't too full and it seemed to have a few regulars diners in for a lunchtime trade. Restaurant looks quite authentically vintage and Middle Eastern in decor, with not an IKEA piece of furniture in sight. We had the... More

Went here with my wife at lunchtime. The food was excellent, and very good value for money. I had the hake, my wife had the prawns with coffees still under €30. I noticed it is BYO, and there is a wine shop just around the corner. I want to try this place in the evening. I will be going again.

We had the work Christmas dinner here (10 people) and it was great! The food was very good! It was great that we could bring our own wine. The staff was very nice and helpful! Will definitely go there again. And it looks like it's a good place for a smaller group of people as well, or a couple.

Visited on Sunday 04/01/2015 Myself & wife were in Dublin for a post Christmas break & thought we would like to try something different for a change. Looking through Trip for something that would suit both tastes (I'm Veggie & my wife is not) we thought the menu & reviews sounded good. Thank you Tripadvisor reviewers. As some have said... More

Lovely restaurant for a middle eastern flavour of food. Enjoyed the skewered lamb for my mains, and and my friends enjoyed their meals too. Definitely calling again next time I'm in Ballsbridge.

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

Keshka offers North Africa food somthing I know nothing about but was not disappointed in. I could see influence from indian and greek. The front of the building under sells it with to... More
