Kilim is a simple eat in and take away Turkish restaurant. There is nothing fancy about it but it serves good, reasonably priced Turkish food. The restaurant is decorated with Turkish carpets and other hangings etc from that area. Meals are large so go when you are hungry. Great place to eat before going to the wonderful little cinema in Petone, which is nearby. The best value meal we had in New Zealand. So good, that we went back for lunch!

Food was very good. Service was good. Value for money was good. The first time we came here they were asked to leave different things off two of the plates, but only left stuff off one. This is a little annoying. If I was rating them on that meal alone it would be 4 stars only.

However, we came here again a couple of months later, they got our meals perfect. And the food was excellent, way better than the first time. Now they get 5 stars.

I have had the best Kebabs outside of Turkey here. The large is LARGE and the food is well seasoned and tasty. They wouldn't win master chef on their presentation of the meals, but who cares when they taste this good!

Service - I'm not marking them down here as the service was great on Friday night. Staff were friendly and it pays to know that this is a self service resturant with regards to water etc and that's how three adults ate for $23 each - and we were all full!!
Grab your water glasses from the back and drink up Petone water (no cholorine here) and whilst you are at grab your wine glasses too.

The resturant is also provides a takeaway service so at night that does mean that the area around the till will get crowded. Table service is provided at night only and it pays to book Thurs-Sun.

The only issue we had was the door into the resturant is really hard to open.

Been to the restaurant twice
Table was not available even after making an reservation; then was asked to move to a different table which was not even wiped!
Customer service... what's that ?
Food portions were quite small
Will rather go Kebab brothers in Courtney place, which has better portion served at cheaper prices and they know a thing or two about Customer service.

Love the kebabs, although the eskanders and other rice meals arent too spectacular. The service is terrible, however the one girl who works behind the counter, and maybe related to one of the workers is very accomodating. Do not sit right down the back near the toilet, and can get very hot in warmer months, especially without any fresh air.
