Fantastic food, I couldn't recommend it enough, probably on of the best Moroccan restaurants I've been to. Great atmosphere. I'd go again, a great date venue to take your lover.

I went to this lovely little place after a long time and as usual I wasn't disappointed. We were two families with young children. The staff at Le Kesh could not have been more welcoming. We had a mixture of starters and main courses, me having the lamb tagine. I like my tagine spicy so asked for this and sure... More

My family and I went all over Oxford looking for a good place to eat and found Le Kesh. It looked very interesting and we decided to give it a go. It was generally good and the place where we were seated was right by the window next to a radiator. It was super cold but enjoyable enough. The food... More

Wonderful food here tonight. Hot mezze starter and salad between us, quite a large serving and really tasty. Followed by mixed grill and chicken tagine. Both had rice accompaniments. Such lovely, tasty food in really comfortable surroundings and polite, attentive staff. Would highly recommend.

I went to Le Kesh last night with a friend for a 'Palentine' dinner. The restaurant was clearly a popular choice that night as it was extremely busy, but the service was still very attentive. This was a return visit for me and it was nice that the manager, Sam, remembered me and stopped to have a chat. The food... More

My partner and I went on a cold Sunday evening in mid February. The restaurant was cold despite a small fan heater blowing above the entrance. The Meze starter was disappointing. Quite expensive and not much meat, in fact not much of anything except salad. A LOT of salad in the middle of a large dish. I would have called... More

It was a while since we had been to Le Kesh, but it was as we had remembered - a decent place serving food that's a little different from the usual fare on the Cowley Road. It's some sort of Moroccan fusion place but exactly what it's fusing with I'm not sure, but it was very good nonetheless. Friendly staff,... More

I had dinner at Le Kesh recently and thought it was just an amazing place with excellent food, staff and a lovely Hooka lounge at the back, which was a real surprise. We ordered a bunch of warm and cold starters as well as a lovely bottle of Lebanese Wine. We had our meal and the waitress informed us that... More

4 of us visited Le Kesh last evening we arrived early in the evening after a matinee performance at the New Theatre. We were all visiting a Moroccan restaurant for the first time. The waiter , who I think was the proprietor, was most helpful offering us advice on the food on offer. The starters were excellent, Le Kesh Halloumi... More
