Great food, great value

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... read 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.

Eight of us went here for my daughter's birthday last Thursday night. We all ordered different dishes and everybody loved their food. We dropped a birthday cake and some wine in earlier that day and staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. Have already booked to go back again and can't wait.

We've eaten in Keshk twice and both times the food has been excellent. You really do have to book as it's been so busy on both visits. It's BYO but there is a fantastic off sales round the corner on Bagott street which does a great selection of craft beers and wine. Keshk is a wee bit on the small... More
