A group of 9 of us went to dinner here on Friday night. I love going to Zilli. The food is very good, tasty and lots of it. The staff, especially Stephanie was very attentive, thanks Stephanie and the owner, Mehmet is very tolerant of us wanting to dance and practice our belly dancing after we have finished our meals.

Another one of our favourites in Petone. Although the decor is a little dated now, the atmosphere is fabulous, very relaxed and cosy. Food is consistently good and also value for money. We often pop in for a platter before heading off to the movies. Zilli is licensed and byo wine. The back section of the restaurant is great with a couple of lovely big tables and cushions - very good for larger groups. Would definitely recommend Cafe Zilli if you are looking for great food with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

Last night a group of us ate at Cafe Zilli for the first time. The street front of the cafe is small and it looks more like a take away shop than a restaurant. Inside the decor is dated. We sat in the cosy back section which has fabric on the ceiling creating a cave like effect. The cafe was quite busy for a Tuesday night; possibly because it is the Christmas season. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The service was a little slow but that didn't matter because our group had lots to chat about. The serving portions were huge; we shared an entree platter but didn't really need an entree as our mains were so big. The food was good but not the best turkish food I've had; I'd rate the food 7/10. Overall it was a pleasant experience and quite inexpensive.

For my main I ordered Vegetarian Moussaka, its absolutely divine. Desserts are fantastic. Service needs to be improved and interior needs revamping. Overall the food is great.
