Selected Le Kesh as i love lebanese food. Walked in the door manager was non observant of us & practically ignored us stood there waiting for a table. Ordered x2 mixed grills with houmous & calamari, food was not bad so cant complain with that aspect. The table we sat at was wobbly which i can handle. The couple next... More

Had a quick lunch here this week. Owner was very helpful and courteous. Helped us select the right dishes which were absolutely and surprisingly delightful. Better than other London based Chinese restaurants and prices were reasonable too!! We chose a lamb and egg fried rice dish and prawn schezwan dish with hot and sour soup for starters. The food was... More

We had eaten here some years ago and visited again as we were going to a gig nearby. The restaurant has recently been redecorated and the atmosphere was still great and the staff welcoming. There was lots of choice for starters so I opted for the mixed meze which was totally delicious - there wasn't anything on the plate that... More

An excellent independent Lebanese experience, fantastic food and a great atmosphere, the shisha garden is relaxing and social. Would definitely return

Kicked out of our own house by hordes of teenagers celebrating the end of GCSE's, we wondered up the Cowley Rd and visited this restaurant we hadn't tried before. Well worth the visit. It was a busy Friday night and we sat out at the back of the restaurant under the canopy. They were very busy and a little short... More

I was taken here recently by my partner after attending a charity volunteer awards ceremony in Oxford town hall. We went to Morocco many years ago and she thought it would be nice to rekindle the atmosphere we had on holiday. We were not disappointed. The meal was exactly as we remembered in a ambient surrounding. The ability to buy... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is good. The food is outstanding. Only thing that should be improved is the bill, it takes approximately 10 minutes.

I booked a table for 6 for a friend's birthday. Having been there before I had high expectations for the food and service - And it didn't disappoint. The food was fantastic. Service good overall and everyone left very happy and relaxed. I will definitely recommend Le Kesh to anyone and look forward to another meal there.

We had two very different experiences on two visits to the restaurant. One Saturday for lunch we had a very lovely experience, the food (their mezze platter and chicken tagine) was great and the service was excellent. On another midweek visit, we went as a group of 6 and had their "feast" meal which was actually very small, hardly any... More
