This restaurant was excellent, i don't know why it isn't rated higher. We read the reviews on Trip Adviser and wanted something a bit traditional (but with an Engish menu), and near Istiklal avenue. So we ordered what the other reviewers recommended; Mediterranean share plate to start with, then the almond chicken and the stuffed eggplant. All the food was... More

Loved the food and the vibe of Klemuri. Great service and everything was excellent. I had the halloumni salad and then the famous almond chicken along with a homemade lemonade. Perfect mix.

We enjoyed a great dinner at Klemuri, which is a calm oasis from the chaos of Istiklal Cadisi. Klemuri has the feel of a cozy neighbourhood restaurant. The service is friendly and low-key, the menu is in English and the food is simple, fresh and delicious. They have a good range of vegetarian choices, with mains and meze share plates... More

Located in a beautiful little building in one of Taksim street extensions, this lovely place is the perfect place to unwind after a long day of sightseeing or shopping. Highly recommend it. Note: got quite a good number of vegetarian options.

Took a while to find, but lovely friendly staff and enjoyed the food, particularly the chicken almond. My only comment as a silver surfer as such is this is a no frills good food reasonable cost place to go, and great value. We were surrounded by people a third of our age and it was nice, but perhaps we would... More

The service was friendly and the atmosphere cheerful for lunch. We ordered the beef stew with a side of rice and the chicken with almonds, coming to a total of 38 lira. The beef stew was forgettable, nothing special. The chicken with almonds was fantastic, one of the best dishes Ive had in Turkey. Unfortunately I forgot to ask if... More

We had a mixed plate to share then stuffed aubergines and chicken with almonds. The flavours were exquisite and cooked with love. Prices are very reasonable and our was waitress delightful. The simple but... More

My boyfriend and I have wandered Istiklal Street for 2 nights looking for a nice, not too expensive sit down meal. We found this highly rated on Tripadvisor and it was close to the apartment we rented. We arrived around 9:45pm on a Wednesday when Istiklal is loud and very very busy. It was quiet inside, the staff was very... More

My wife and I eat here just about every time we are in the neighborhood. For the location, you can't get much better quality for the price. I have tried many of the dishes at this point, but my go-to item is the Almond Chicken. The setting is very cozy and feels like you are having dinner in your grandmother's... More
