They get ir right!

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... read 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

Keshk Cafe Restaurant came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Excellent food, lovely ambiance plus very friendly staff. Only regret is that we are going home tomorrow and we have to wait until we visit Dublin again before we can return.

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 with a nice side... 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
