This has to be the best Turkish restaurant in Napier, the food is fantastic, it's BYO only, but they don't charge a corkage fee, the coffee is great and the service fantastic

If you are in Napier and like Turkish food - eat here! Think we had the super waitress! Incredibly friendly and naturally bubbly, made us feel welcome. Food is absolutely wonderful - loved all the flavours and excellent value.

Great place. Can read a book without noise, enjoy a relaxed lunch by an open window and enjoy excellent coffee and fresh well cooked and presented food. Friendly polite staff. Really really good humus!

Our dinner at Kilim was very good, but I wouldn't say exceptional. The staff was pleasant and attentive. The room is comfortable and the location of the restaurant is good if you're walking downtown.

A healthy option that does not have to cost the earth - salads, humus, chicken, falafel, lamb are on offer and all taste great. Servings are big and satisfying.

My family recommended that we try Kilim while visiting Napier and it was the best advice I could've followed. The food was amazing and priced really well. I want to go for dinner tomorrow night as well!

As soon as you enter the restaurant you are made to feel welcome. The choices of food are excellent and the staff are always helpful. The decor is really nice too. My favourite meal is the Lamb Iskender. The meals are generous so you can ask for a 1/2 size meal.

Wow! Great ambience, sitting on the bench seats with kilim cushions and covers, tasting delicious food. We had three courses that were amazing in taste and value. The mixed grill in particular was excellent. We finished with apple tea, moccachinos and a big smile as we worked out how little we'd paid in terms of BYO (no corkage) and reasonable... More
