Meals are very reasonably priced, great for dinning in, BOY wine. We get take-ways once a month. Kids love the kebabs.

The hummus is out of this world. The most delicious food and a fun place to rest on a busy ArtDeco weekend. Just off the main drag and close to everything. I loved sitting next to the big open window. You can tell they put a lot of love in the cooking.

Really enjoyed the food - shared a meze and then we had the lamb and the chicken. Felt like being in Turkey The staff was very friendly and it was nice that they had BYO as they did not served wine. Will definately return if we return to Napier.

Wow Kilim was literally the best falafel meal I have ever had (and being a Turkish-obsessed vegetarian I have had a few) I'm considering driving back to Napier (from Auckland) just to eat there again!

We choose Kilim after reading the good reviews and we were not disappointed. We brought our own bottle of wine and enjoyed a great meal. A must when visiting Napier.

This restaurant looked interesting from the street and was a really enjoyable experience in every way. Inside was warm and inviting with a good atmosphere. The menu was interesting and the food very tasty. Good service and excellent value with BYOW and no corkage complete this very enjoyable experience.

If we want some nice food, in cheery surroundings, that isn't going to blow the budget, this is always where we head (don't know anywhere else where they don't charge corkage).

Kilim is a nice, affordable place to have some lunch or take away. The kebabs in a wrap are delicious and very reasonably priced. Only one dollar difference for the large one; maybe that should be differentiated a bit more, but I guess everyone goes for the large one... for the sake of a dollar! Nice interior, nice feel, good... More

Kilim appears to be the only restaurant in Napier that allows you to bring your own bottle (no alcohol is served in the restaurant) and as we had a cheap (and excellent) bottle of bubbly from our wine tour of Martinborough it was a good recommendation. Service was charming; the food was good and plentiful - not haute cuisine, but... More
