Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A big thank you to the owner and staff at Keyif. We had a problem with the car outside the restaurant. Our car had stopped & was very close to another parked car directly outside Keyif. We hoped to find the car owner in the...restaurant to let them know what was going on, whilst we waited for roadside assistance. Turned out the car was owned by the restauranteur, who was extremely helpful. We were offered seats to wait inside in the warm & we quickly decided to eat at the restaurant whilst we waited. The food was excellent, staff were friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our unexpected meal out. The moussaka was delicious and very filling, the bread and dips were amazing, and the chicken was delightful, & everything was beautifully presented. Thank you for your kindness & patience over several hours whilst waiting on the roadside assistance. We look forward to vising again, hopefully there will be no car issues next time!More

My first visit to Penarth for several years and indeed my first visit to this restaurant. Myself and wife popped in on a Friday afternoon and enjoyed a bottle of Turkish Red wine, starters and mains. The interior was very pleasant and the waiter was...very polite and friendly. My main dish in fact Lamb Kofta was one of the best flavoured I have eaten for many a long time. In a world getting madder by the day it is wonderful to sit down and enjoy fine food and focus on what matters in life.More
