What a brilliant restaurant, just come here, you won't regret it!

Myself and four friends recently visited Keshk (Mr Keshk from Egypt runs the place) on a Tuesday evening (it was packed) for a celebration meal. I have to say it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. We all had the Shishtaouk, which was so flavoursome, loads of chicken and came... read more

Dined here on Friday evening based on a pal's recommendation and will definitely be back. Apart from their very generous BYOB policy for both wines and beers, the main reason to check this place out was based on their varied menu - to suit meat eaters and vegetarians alike! My veggie pal was blown away by the offering on the... More

Feeling effusive after lunch in this top class restauant. Each dish was so flavoursome we literally did not want to talk: only wanted to savour each fork-full. The staff were so professional and friendly we felt we were enjoying a 5-star experience. They have clearly been extremely well trained and also seemed to genuinely love and respect their working environment... More

A great menu and great food. Lovely combinations of ingredients and very high quality finish. I have eaten here twice and both times the standard has been very high.

Visited this restaurant with a group of friends recently - having found that it was Veggie friendly with great reviews. We were not disappointed - the food was great (& Loads of it), service excellent and great value. The fact that it is BYOB is brilliant as well. There is a great little Off Licence around the corner doing wine... More

We are regulars at Keshk and it is always a lovely experience, the food is always delicious, we usually start with falafel and prawns, for mains the lamb, kofta, prawns or mixed grill are all excellent. The staff are always friendly and helpful. This is the only restaurant in the area that is consistently good and always great value.

The service was good, the food was tasty. Nice Mediterranean food, prepared well. We started with Greek salads. Nice sized salads and very fresh tasting. Moved on to the main. I had the chargrilled Kafta. Lovely spicing, rather large portion. It's served with some grilled vegetables, a salad and a starch (or more salad). I left this place very satisfied,... More

Recommend this buzzing restaurant to anyone, visited 29 May and really enjoyed the food. Baba ganoush starter with homemade pitta and shishtaouk main, with the best side of spicy potatoes. All tasted fresh and presented well. Service was speedy, funny and efficient.
