An excellent place to stop for dinner or to grab takeaways. Excellent service, fresh food and very authentic.

I really like the turkish food at kilim and the people are always friendly. You get your meal so fast and the prices are also ok. Your really have to take the chicken saganaki and a turkish apple tea ;)

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!

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.
