I've been coming here now for 4 or so years everytime I am in Wellington or region. The food is superb, service super quick, amazingly priced and excellent choices for those of a vegetarian persuasion (not me). I will always have dinner or lunch here once per visit to the area.

This is a lovely busy cafe with friendly staff. We were served quickly with a variety of yummy Turkish dishes. Really good value as all the mains are $20 or less. To be recommended. The garlic bread is superb.

We have eaten here regularly as it is a consistent experience. It's casul and the food is generous and good value. We like the loaded plates of healthy turkish food.

Whenever we go to the movies at the Lighthouse we go to Kilim Petone for an authentic turkish meal with excellent service. Grilled Halloumi Cheese with humus, felafels and Turkish bread is our favorite.

This is my favourite place to eat. It's great for taking a friend which I have done many many times. It's also great for family dinners or events. The staff are great the atmosphere is nice and the food is even better. You have to try the curly fries!

Our family of 12 just had the best lunch! Very well catered for 7 adults and 5 children, one of whom is an allergy kid. Fantastic food and the best service.

Kilim is now one of our all time favourite restaurants in the Wellington region. It offers just the most scrumptious food, generous portions and friendly staff, that just makes you want to keep returning year after year.
