Nice variety

The staff was friendly. I was impressed by the variety of food on my main dish plate. In addition to the meat and rice, there were several salads and side dishes. Delicious.

My partner and I frequent this place as we are vegetarians and they have an extensive vegetarian menu. I have at this point tried almost every vegetarian meal on their menu and each of them was delicious and full of flavor. The staff are really friendly and the food comes out quickly. The food is always very consistent and the... More

Kilim is located on a rather lonely street. But don't let that deter you from visiting. We went looking for it and were a little nonplussed by how quiet it was down the street. But kilim stood out- warm, full of people and great food. I did the veggie mezze platter & loved it. Would go back again. It also... More

I have been there like 8 months ago and I just spent my money for food in Kilim. Their hospitality was awesome. It's like the food made by real professionals and believe me they are real.

They charded too much extra for a meal on a staturoy holiday with the pretence that it was to cover staff costs when it was obviously a family business. Just gouging the customer. At least Mc D's hires staff anf there is no extra charge. Extra charge for extra costs maybe. I didn't like this and the food was nothing... More

This is a really good restaurant! The dishes are served exceptionally fast and the meals are beautiful and delicious. But mostly, it's always nice to receive a warm welcome, the team is smily and helpful, as the only thing you want when you leave the place is coming back soon.
