Thanks for looking after us here - busy Saturday night. Picked up an excellent (if expensive) wine very nearby, so definitely a plus that no corkage charged. Being close to vegetarian we didn't try much meat wise apart from the tasty vine leaves. Okra and veggie stew along with brilliant spicy potatoes definitely recommended. Specially good place to go if... More

We needed an early dinner as we'd been travelling to Dublin and chose Keshk as Turkish is our favourite, with Lebanese a close second. The mixed grill was excellent, my wife had grilled chicken and we shared a nice salad. Hot sauces are not normally my thing, but they were very tasty indeed. It's bring your own booze, but this...

We visited this place on a motorbike tour of Ireland after finding it on TripAdvisor. It's not in the centre of things, but even though we had to walk about 1.5 miles to get there, it was certainly worth the effort, and I'm sure that there's a bus, or a taxi wouldn't have cost much. We were a bit startled... More

Very nice food, no disappointment there. Caring and well-trained staff. The restaurant is very well located - still in the centre but away from all the busy places. This means in the evening you can park very close to it. Cherry on top is that you can actually chat with the owner and headchef when the service finishes, so after... More

Here with work colleagues for a birthday and farewell party. Quite busy for a Monday evening. Brought our own wine from Baggot Street Wines which is just around the corner. They have an excellent range of wines and the staff are very knowledgeable and always recommend great wines to accompany the food in this establishment. Happy, friendly service. Menu is... More

Called in here on a Saturday night on the off chance. The owner went out of his way to find us a table, admittedly a bar type table, but it was fine. The restaurant was full with a regular turnover and quite noisy. Also you have to take your own alcohol as they don't have a license. There is a... More

I have been here for lunch and dinner recently. The food is top quality Turkish / Middle Eastern. Staff are friendly and the service is prompt. There are some excellent lunch specials, really good value. No alcohol is served in this restaurant, but they are happy for you to bring your own from the off licence around the corner. There...

Middle Eastern food is my favourite - tasty, piquant, not pretentious, fantastic variety of salads, endless combinations of vegetables. This is exactly the food they serve at Keshk. Delicious. Highly recommended. Friendly service.

Really nice food options with a good variety of choice. Good for a group and good for vegetarians. Slightly more expensive however it is BYOB so cost is not more than most restaurants
