The Kilim was decorated in a comfy boho middle eastern style. The menu is extensive, great vegetarian and meat dishes. Excellent desserts. We were happy to be able to bring in our own wine. Prices were very reasonable and the food was delicious.

A nice meal with a group of friends, meals all arrived together, and were substantial. Freshly prepared in view of the restaurant. Would go back to this place, either to dine in or take away

Good size, lovely decor. Value for money, fresh and tasty, and a true family run business. Good option for those on a budget who might go out to a burger chain usually but looking for a healthier alternative for the family. Service was very good and attentive. Meals arrived at the tables quite quickly after ordering despite it being an... More

We both had the meze, one with chicken and one with lamb. Both were delicious. We had apple tea, but many were bringing their own wine. Service was very good. Pleasant atmosphere. If we were staying longer, we would be back.

I'm a kebab aficianado. This is a great kebab. I got the large mix kebab ($11) with chili and garlic sauce. Came out quickly and was really delicious. Served on very thin flatbread with bulgur wheat and the sauces were delicious. Meat was above average quality; not out of this world, but the kebab as a whole was top-tier. Highly... More

Had a lovely meal there tonight. Beautiful meal, great service and good value for money. It is BYO and the only thing I could criticise is that they didn't have any ice for our drinks. Otherwise I would recommend this restaurant.

Have eaten here several times here when visiting Napier. The meals consist of large tasty portions. The restaurant is open 7 days a week as well as being BYO as well as licenced. Booking in advanced can be a bit hit and miss if you do it by phone. But the service is OK and the food comes quickly once... More
