My daughter and I had Sunday lunch here. We have eaten here before, although not for a while. Sadly, on this occasion, we were left disappointed by our meals. The food did not seem as fresh as usual. The proteins were overcooked and over salted....it was as if not enough care had been taken, and it was just about churning out the food.More

Its been taken over by Indian folks so authenticity being Turkish does not exists. Meat/food tastes more spic, its not the same unfortunately.

We ordered individual staff take away lunches for x15 people (rang the day before) and we will definitely be going back! The meals were ready on time, the service was outstanding and the staff exceptionally polite and helpful. The "tweaks" we requested to individual meals...were complied with easily and with no hassle. The food was beautifully presented and was one of the the tastiest meals I've had. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be going there again.More

2nd time in a row that they have got our order wrong and missed someone’s dinner. So annoying especially as first takeaway after lockdown!!

It is Mother’s Day on COVID19 alert level 3, no dine in yet. I ordered takeaways for the family at 1230pm and I went at 645pm to pick up my orders, they do not have my order. OMG at that busy time to re order?!...This is a very very bad experience.More

Kilim offers good Turkish food and you will not be left hungry. The bbq meats and dips are great, the service friendly enough and the atmosphere snug on a cold night

Great food at an affordable price. Had a saganaki with fries and the dish was very hearty and full of flavour. The baklava was out of this world. Look forward to visiting again. :-)

Been here before and it was good, however this time I approached the counter and was greeted by a woman that seemed to me would rather be some place else. Donar kebab how hard can it be? My order was slid across the table in...a basket and when I went to pick it up it fell apart.Not a good start. So I thought good opportunity to see what’s in it. I would say a tablespoon of chicken and rest salad and a soggy dressing so much so it leaked all over and the bread just dissolved. The decor was good but the music I was about to fall asleep. Pity because this place had potential they just need to regroupMore

Best Turkish in Petone! Always get the Iskender, delicious! Authentic vibe here and usually eat in but can get quite busy.

If you mean child friendly, I don't see why not. It's a very relaxed atmosphere. As you seem to be in Lower Hutt, I'd just go along and ask them!
