We went here on a couple of recommendations but were disappointed. We decided to get our food to takeaway so cannot comment on the atmosphere or service in the restaurant. Our food was certainly ready very quickly and tasted ok, but have had better and was disappointed overall.

Was open on Christmas day, thank goodness for national and religious variations. Some of the food was new to us and most enjoyable.

This was our second visit, the last being last time we were in Napier 5 years ago. We were impressed then, and more so this time after we have been to Turkey. The food was authentic, and plentiful. The service efficient, timely, and friendly. The music was just loud enough for atmosphere but quiet enough for normal conversation. We will... More

If you like a wine with your meal, BYO is attractive but Kilim... More

This is a charming restaurant in Napier that is decorated with an array of Turkish cushions and other objects. My husband tried the mixed grill plate. The meat was incredibly tender and full of flavour. I ordered a dish with lamb and tomato that was in a small pot. The meal was delicious but the lamb was just too spicy... More
