Visited Napier on Easter Monday and found everywhere really quiet - until we chanced upon this amazing restaurant. The choice of food is wonderful, and the portions huge.... and very tasty. We fancied a dessert but couldn't manage one after we'd wired our way through some huge plates of main... read more

Not bad for a kebab shop, food is fresh and quick. Atmosphere feels like a takeaway, which I guess is what it is!

We first looked up Kilim as we heard of the BYO without corkage. In the end we had a takeaway instead. The food was alright, not bad for its price. Those looking for a tasty meal might want to go elsewhere. Evidently Kilim's popularity is largely because diners get to not have the typical pub food with their booze.

So glad we found this restaurant a short walk from our motel. The food was delicious and the servings generous, and we all enjoyed our meals. The only slightly confusing thing was whether it was table service or order at the counter, but we worked our way through this, and it would not put us off eating there again. Heartily... More

I had the mixed plate in which each part was mediocre, the vine leaves, often poor at this type of restaurant, were particularly inedible. My girlfriend had some very prosaic chips as part of her meal while her daughter got the best of it with a decent chicken roll. Having eaten a lot of lebanese and turkish food while living... More

Great little restaurant. Food was fresh and fabulous and well priced. They are not licensed so bring along a chilled bottle from a local winery. You won't be disappointed.

While waiting for Cyclone Pam to blow over we ventured out on a very windy night to the Turkish restaurant "Kilim". The surrounds inside the restaurant are basic but I was not there for the decor. Beside the usual suspects (kebabs etc) it does offer a good range of Turkish dishes. My wife and I shared a spicy walnut entree... More

Being a local, I enjoy eating at Kilim regularly, and the service is always fast and friendly, no matter how busy they are. The meals are well-priced and a decent size. My favourite place to eat in town, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a fast meal in a friendly, casual environment.
