We were recommended to go to this place by other cafe owner so we thought we should give it a go. We ordered Iskender and Mixed Grill and wow, they are so yummy that nothing left on our plates. The price was reasonable and service was fast and friendly. Highly recommend it!!!!

We visited on a busy night in January 2017. The restaurant was hot and would have benefitted from having a overhead fan. The food was good, not terrific. Location was walking distance from our accommodation and easy to find

I have enjoyed eating here on a number of visits to Napier, I just keep coming back. The food is delicious, and I love the orange and almond cake, mmmm Hubby loved the chocolate cake too. The staff are so friendly and interesting.

We stopped for dinner almost by accident - every place seemed full, but fortunately we could get a table at Kilim. The restaurant is quite small but has an outdoor area that would be nice if it was ever warm in Napier. The food was excellent. Tasty, well made (home made) with fresh ingredients. In particular the Borek was excellent... More

Large choice of dishes with ingredients that always taste fresh and full of flavour. Pleasant service, relaxed atmosphere, and cheerful decor. Always fun for groups. And it's BYO!

Was really gorgeous meat and sauces, but if I'm to be 100% honest I was massively let down by the poor salad, Lettuce, sauce, and a sprinkle of carrot. Hence the 3 star, cafe antoila has the proper iskenders with wicked meats, rice, and salads.

Stock standard Turkish but a little bit on the bland side. Shame they don't bring some real Turkish flavour to the table.

I eat at Kilim as a treat. Napier is far from home but going here was a must do in Napier. It was as good as expected plus with one bonus- new meal experience- swordfish. It was awesome.

Have dined here many times and loved it. After a busy day at work and no dinner prepared this is the place to call in to. The service is so quick and I love getting the kebabs. The staff are all so friendly and will continue to go there. When tourists come to my work I always tell them to... More
