We stopped off here after a recommendation from the proprietor of our B&B. I was at first skeptical as that I am very critical of my middle eastern food. We ordered the mixed sampler appetizer plate and it was fantastic. The falafel was moist (which seems impossible to find outside the Middle East), the hummus had the correct amount of... More

Eat in Keshk last night for the second time in exactly a year ... most definitely wont be waiting as long again. The food is absolutely beautiful and different in this North African-East European flavoured restaurant; had the lentil and carrot soup as a starter and it was delicious. My main course was the Charcoaled Kafta: a dish of minced... More

I've been here a few times and the food is excellent - fresh, tasty, and varied. The service is always friendly (if SLOW - last time it took 15 minutes to get a check after asking for it and we practically had to run the server down to ask her for the check in the first place, then remind her...

Popped in for some kofta, excellent friendly service and the place was buzzing. A great atmosphere and great food. I love Egyptian cuisine and the place won't disappoint!

I have been there around 5 times so far. The restaurant has a very good selection of food. The service always good and the food always good.

If you want a rich Mediterranean dinner Keshk is a good option combining a bit of Arabic, Greek and Turkish cuisines. My favourite typical dishes are Daouod Basha and the Okra. Also definitely order the Dolma and falafel for starters..yum!

Stopped in here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Welcomed by friendly and helpful staff. Good choices and reasonably priced menu. Food and service were excellent, the garlic potatoes are to die for... Will definitely return here soon

The food at Keshk is amazing. The hummus and falafel are some of the best I have ever eaten! Try the Greek salad because the feta cheese is so creamy and delicious! Go at an off time because the restaurant is small or make a reservation for a better table.
