We visited after reading good reviews and were disappointed that the food was so bland. We had a lovely evening and the service was friendly and helpful. We had baba ganoush that was creamy, falafel that had very little taste and lamb chops, lamb sausage and chilli lamb and a bean stew. The mains were of reasonable quality but just... More

I went there last week with my friend Sharon for a late afternoon lunch on a very cold day so it was lovely to walk into a cosy welcoming place, we were greeted by a very friendly chap and promptly seated to our table, as it's BYO (no corkage) we gave our red to warm slightly and ordered our food,...

Very highly recommended restaurant. You can BYOB with no extra cost and food is delicious. Chilli Kafta and Keshk Chicken are gorgeous, as are the prawns as a startaer. The service is great and the restaurant atmosphere is really good, it's always bust. This time we went with friends but I have also had many dinners here with my parents... More

Went here for a birthday in large group. We were all seated perfectly at a table where we all uncorked a bottle we had brought ourselves. The BYOB policy is great. At first we were handed a "Party Menu" which was quite limited so we all asked for a regular menu! Which is alot better I terms of choice and... More

The Keshk cafe is a small but charming place and the minute you come in you'll be greeted by smiles and a willingness to make you're evening out an enjoyable one. The food is simply good, nothing is overly exciting but it's fresh, tasteful and, again, served to your table with a smile. We loved the choice of starters that... More

I went here for a friend's birthday and just loved everything about this charming place. The restaurant was really busy with a lovely warm atmosphere and a buzz that made me wanted to stay on longer then we had the table for! Loved the BYOB - this enabled me to have my favourite bottle of wine with such fine food!... More

The food here is excellent. The service is friendly and professional. The tables are arranged in a long line, no one seems to get a good spot. There seems to be no good table in the place, and coming in without reservations assures that you'll get the worst. Be sure to stop off first and buy your wine for dinner,... More

Went to Keshk recently with another couple and we all said we would definitely be returning. The food was great with such a variety to choose from the menu. The service was excellent - the waiters were so professional whilst being friendly. You can bring your own wine, which makes a night out so reasonable with such great food. The... More

Lovely intimate atmosphere yet the place buzzing with diners. Excellent menu with lots of choices and combinations. Great wine shop almost next store where you can purchase a great wine at a low price and have it served at your table with no corkage. Friends have eaten here since on our recommendation.
