I visited Keshk Cafe with a group of friends. It was recommended to me by a family member and it did not disappoint. The staff were friendly, professional, welcoming and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. The food was exquisite, more than generous portions and packed with authentic flavour. I tried the Lamb Moussaka with spicy potatoes... it was... More

Well was told about this place by some friends so went over for dinner. To start with there were used napkins under the table, opened the menu and there is a comment in the there from a newspaper which I found unusually insensitive toward a certain ethnic group. The starters and the friendly staff are the only positives. I had... More

Had a lovely meal here one Friday evening with friends. We had the shared platter to start snd I had the lamb meatballs for main course which were very tasty. It's a bring your own wine restaurant which was handy. It's a cafe style restaurant, not the cheapest but I definitely would return.

Visited here with a group of friends, six of us in total so we were seated downstairs with other groups, leaving upstairs less raucous for couples, good idea! Bring your own wine or beer. Set menu for groups with a tasting meze to start, we assumed it would be a sharing meze but instead it was one each, huge portions... More

This is a fabulous place to eat with friends. The food is consistently excellent with a nice selection of Egyptian, Greek and Turkish dishes. BYOB and no corkage charge so you can nip into Baggot Wines around the corner and treat yourself to a slightly nicer bottle than you planned.
