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

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.

Is the restaurant in Hastings run by the same people? I can't find a menu.

The restaurant is in Napier. There is no Kilim in Hastings. There is another Kilim in Havelock North, but we have just same name, we are different companies who used to work together.
