Very nice lunch. Great buffet of starters as well as excellent kebab. The best thing was their humus, one of the tastiest I have had. Pricing a bit on the high side, but worth it.

Having had lunch here from time to time, I can recommend this place. But as the lunch menu is practically the same avery day, it is not a place to visit many times a month. They have nice meze sortiment, and one warm dish, plus...the mandatory kebab meat. Remember to pick some of those tasty olives on your plate!More

Best lunch in Espoo. Especially the meze options, which are abundant. The kebab is fantastic too, so make sure to save some room for it too!

Kilim has become a tradition in Tapiola and has served really good Turkish food quite along time. This family owned restaurant is a must to visit, if you like Turkish food. The owner can give you recommendations, if you are not sure what you want...to eat. Nice and quiet atmosphere makes your dining experience even more enjoyable. Make a reservation, if you want to guarantee your seating.More

If you are looking for a place that leave you with positive feeling after your meal this is not your place. The owner is quite unpleasant and looks like he is not happy. Has happened now few times within few years, it was a year...ago I went, and it was the same yesterday, unfortunately. So I cannot recommend this place if you are looking for a nice dinner place for your family occasions and enjoy good service. If you just want to fill your stomach you can go, but do not expect any smiles, and the desert candies were literally thrown in front of you without looking into your eyes. Oh, well, luckily there are also nice places in Tapiola, for example the sushi place on the same street; very friendly.More

Nice turkish buffet with lamp kebab, very affordable during the weekdays at lunchtime, not bad price in the weekends either. Dinner time a la carte is in mid range, but the mezas are really good..

I have visited this restaurant on several occasions and had reviewed in latest seven years ago when I gave it full five stars. Nowadays, I'm giving just three stars. The food is very much like it used to be but there are so many new...Turkish/mediterranean cuisine restaurants to compare with that Kilim is not so special anymore. Good thing is that this is a family restaurant and has maintained its traditions but some renewal in the (lunch buffet) menu would be recommended. Also more varieties for vegetarian or vegan guests. Lunch buffet during the weekend is overly priced (20.90EUR).More

Very good neighborhood restaurant in the heart of "Tapiola Old Town". Great staff and regarding the food you always know what to expect. By the way - best lunch in town.

Very tasteless food. Staff did not ask how the food tasted, because there was no taste. Nice place otherswise. But dont expect any food sensations.
