Located in a nice part of town, just outside of city center. Good lunch menu choice and great quality! Will be back again!

Keshk is one of the few places I keep going back to...food is fresh and delicious. Most of the meat and fish mains are char-grilled, it's such a simple concept but it works! On the plus side, it's not overpriced. I would strongly recommend it!

This was a short walk from our hotel, the Doubletree by Hilton--Burlington. We came without a reservation but they were able to find a place for us. The restaurant is warm and cozy with seating on the ground and basement levels; the latter is mostly used for large parties. The food is eastern Mediterranean/Egyptian. It is good and the portions...

I'm used to go to this place quite often, as I'm living in Mespil Road. I've been there at lunch time, dinner, team night out with my colleagues and the result has been always amazing. Food quality is excellent and the service as well is perfect. Great variety of choice and always satisfied. It's a real halal place as they... More

There was lamb, chicken and some type of sausage. it was all excellent.It was the only time in my life when I did not... More

You can BYOB so that alone is a great incentive to go to Keshk but additionally the food is top class, the atmosphere is buzzing and the staff are very kind and attentive. It is a very lively spot and perfect for a big crowd.

We had a party of 7 people and everyone was very pleased with their food. The feta fritters were particularly good (although I recommend staying away from the goat cheese salad). The baklava was terrific: lots of nuts and not too sweet. The service was also very friendly. Note - We were told in advance that we needed to leave... More

We went to Keshk a few days ago and ended up being a unique experience. We had a baba ganouj and falafel to start and keshk chiken and chili lamb as main course. Both were accompanied with spicy potatoes and basmati rice! Yummy! The food was well cooked and the service excellent! In the end the owner offered two pieces... More

Visiting Dublin we discovered Keshk Restaurant. It was really a most enjoyable experience. Lovely and professional staff and really great meals. Do not leave Dublin without visiting Keshk restaurant for lunch or dinner. Willy & Bernadette, Tournai, Belgium

Went there on Friday and we will definitely go back! We had the prawns, falafel and borek to start and kafta, grilled lamb and mousaka as main course. Everything was just amazing; great flavours, generous portions and good prices! The excellent staff and BYOB policy made our dinner even better! Good job!
