Myself and my partner (both living in Dublin) come hear as a treat and it always feels that way after. In particular, their hummus and falafel are among the best we've ever had.

We visited this place for dinner. The staff is fantastic: friendly and helpful, at the same time not overbearing at all. Great food. Good portion size as well.It is at a stone throwing distance from the Mespil hotel. We would definitely return if we happened to be in Dublin again.

This BYOB place is fab, if a little cramped. Cosy and jolly; just what was needed for the cold December night. The food is flavoursome and very moreish. The mixed starter platter and prawns had us wanting more. The main didn't disappoint with lashings of taste and generous portions. Staff were lovely and attentive with being intrusive; taking time to... More

Me and 9 friends had a pre Christmas lunch in Keshk and aside from some great food - had a wonderful afternoon there. We were only moved on when the staff needed to prepare for dinner. I love that you can bring your own wine - we had too much in the end and left a bottle for the staff.... More

I went here with a group of people for one of our Christmas dinners and it was just lovely.  The staff were all so attentive and such great banter too.  The food was amazing. I had the Chicken Skewers - chicken fillet pieces marinated in garlic yoghurt and mixed spices which was cooked so well and was so succulent and... More

We had a wonderful Christmas Dinner at Keshk. The staff were extremely kind and accommodating for a group of over 40 people. The food was absolutely delicious, from Starter to Desert. The staff were wonderful, providing top class service, and facilitating a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. I'm looking forward to going back...can't recommend it highly enough!

I visited Keshk Cafe 2 weeks ago with a group of 8 friends. We had the set Christmas menu. Everyone had a beautiful meal. It was great value and we liked that you can bring your own drink. I would definitely go again.

We decided to eat here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. Started with falafel and chicken rolls and then had the mixed meat mezzo and chicken kebabs and everything was cooked to perfection. They don't have an alcohol licence and so take your own, it makes the cost very reasonable.
