“Will not disappoint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

I probably eat in Keshk once a month and I absolutely love it. The staff are lovely and the food is second to none. Healthy, yet tasty and oh so fresh. The restaurant has no license so it's a great opportunity to bring in some great wines from the off license next door (on lesson street) without paying restaurant inflated prices. Word of warning - will probably need to ring and make a booking. Was very please to see that you can call in and get food to take away. Great value and great food which is quite a rarity in South Dublin.

“Fab food, great service, bring your own wine- top night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

Extremely tasty food- lots of choice on the menu. Especially great for vegeterians as there are more than the typical one or two dishes on the menu! Friendly, fast and efficient service. Bring your own wine is brilliant- more restaurnts should take a leaf out of Keshk's book! Definitely need to make a reservation. Will definitely be back.

“Greek / Turkish / Eqypitan food and a great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

This is a small restaurant which serves the most amazing food at really reasonable prices. It is a ' Bring your own bottle ' and there is no corkage charge. There is a good wine shop across the road if you forget! Food is middle eastern / med type. If you like hummous then this is a must for you and the moussaka is to die for. Have tried most things now and nothing has disappointed. Be warned it is always busy so you need to book a table well in advance.
Staff are really friendly and helpful.
Atmosphere is great.

“Probably Best value and food in Dublin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2011

If you want a table you must book because Keshk is always full. The unique thing about this restaurant is you bring your own wines at no charge, and there is an offie next door, so it is not going to be expensive.
Value does not detract from the first class food.
We had six crispy prawns each as a starter delicious, followed by grilled lamb and chicken with chips rice and salads cooled to perfection
Dessert their own special served by charming staff in a relaxed atmosphere.
The bill for  two including coffee was €45 which for the quality of food was a giveaway
Could not recommend Keshk highly enough
