The Muslim owners of this Egyptian restaurant don't drink and don't serve alcohol, and if you bring your own they won't charge corkage. The food is just gorgeous and never disappoints. The kids particularly like eating here because of the friendly service. Portions are generous so you may not need a starter. Lamb meatballs are my favourite but the falafels... More

We decided to try something different than the typical Irish fare and we were not disappointed. I enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant it had a welcoming feel to it and I especially enjoyed the food.

We visited Keshk Cafe recently for dinner during a family weekend away. We'd found an excellent BYO restaurant the night before so decided to try another one on the second night. Keshk was a great find. The service was great, the food was extremely tasty and the atmosphere was really relaxed. We shared the feta started which was beautiful and... More

Went to Keshk for a birthday dinner. Food was amazing. We had a set menu. The starter for a combo. Really delicious. Good choice of main course also. The chicken skewers were lovely. You can bring your own wine/prosecco/beer. They don't charge for corkage. Definitely worth a visit

We just love this place. Great for a group, small group or couple night out. Food is always tasty and amazing. Portions very generous. You can bring your own bottle of wine or beer. The staff are always friendly. Large selection on menu. Lamb in chili sauce is my favourite... better than any curry. Platter for one was enough for... More

Have been to Keshk twice so far. The food was amazing and the service the best I have received anywhere so far. The staff made every effort to make me and my friends welcome and happy during my stay. Before taking our orders the waitress asked if there was anyone in the group with food allergies. You don't get this... More

I was first introduced to Keshk a few months ago and I have come back every month since. It is one of Dublin's best restaurants. Everything from the welcome to the variety in the menu is excellent. As a vegetarian I usually have few choices in a restaurant not the case here. From a long list of starters to mains... More

Lovely restaurant with interesting range of food although it won't suit everyone so check the menus beforehand. Very popular because of the BYO service so you will need to book. Bill is reasonable because of the BYO but the mains are a little more pricier than normal. My main of baked prawns and rice was €22. Enjoyed the night, would... More

I'd been meaning to try this restaurant for some time - and I wish I'd tried it sooner. I was spoilt for choice on the menu - I could literally have had everything. In the end, I went for charcoal grilled lamb with rice and salad. Absolutely delicious - as was the Baklava that followed. The staff were friendly and... More

First of all, if you're planning to visit here at weekend, you'll need to book. We tried without on a Friday night, without success. Booked for the following night. The food is delightful without being outstanding. Well cooked, beautifully spiced, good portions, varied menu and excellent value for money. No drinks license so take your own The staff are one...
