We had a late lunch here for the first time, and it was a pleasant experience in a very Turkish atmosphere. The choices were good, the open kitchen so you can what's cooking is excellent, the service was friendly and the place was clean. We ordered a chicken kebab and a falafel kebab - both small, yet ample size for... More

I reckon they make the best falafel I have ever tasted. Unreal. Had us coming back a second time to try something different. Their baklava is light and dripping with syrup. Sooooo morish. What great coos. The restaurant is such a lovely bright, open, visual treat as well. Well worth a try for sit down or take-away. Can not recommend... More

Kilim has a warm and welcoming atmosphere with its friendly staff and Turkish rugs, wall hangings and cushions. We really enjoyed the apple tea but found the meals to be blander and less spiced than we expected, based on many meals in Turkish restaurants elsewhere. Nevertheless, OK meals at an OK price.

Kilim is located in the city center. The price is pretty reasonable, and it offers takeaways. So I ate there a few times. Kebab is recommended, both chicken and lamb. For other meals, I tried the beef musakka, which I really like. Chicken Iskender and saganaki are also great. Besides, the portion is really generous.

We found Kilim by chance. Warm welcome and seat by the heater. Started with the bread and dips which were very nice. The mains were great and lots of meat. Would go back again.

Given wots out there, we keep returning for consistently cheerful service and great food at the right price. Freshly prepared meals under 20 bucks a head includes beverage / BYO wine and in fine weather a lovely al fresco dining experience in the garden. In this town at this price point, it's a no brainer, go to KILIM!
