Not a must. Nice place, service is friendly and fast but It does not seems as a really Turkish restaurant. Maybe for a 30 minutes stop and then keep going

Really enjoyed our two visits to Klemuri, on both occasions the food was tasty and the staff very pleasent. It's tucked away on the backstreets near Taksim Square, but definetly worth the detour if you have time. Good value and great food.

The food was good. Restaurant was good, felt like you were in someones house. Service was not the best and our beers came in ceramic cups. Good value for money.

I don't know who is writing all these good reviews. While the Mediterranean platter was "okay", simply a plate full of all the mezes you can get in any other restaurant in Istanbul, the other food was nothing to write home about. My husband had the lamb and it was somewhat tough and not very good (and he is not... More

We visited this small and a bit hidden restaurant three times and we were each time very satisfied by the fresh and very tasty plates, the helpful and attentive staff and the nice "alternative" ambiance. Do not expect a typical vegetarian restaurant - the Klemuri has very nice vegetarian dishes but most of the main plates are not vegetarian. Everything... More

is close to the ΤΑΧΙΜ square .. walk down to Istiklal and turn left at the third street, at the end of the road turn on the right . Αimed more at locals, this is an authentic place away from the tourist shops

While preparing the trip to Istanbul and reading reviews and guides, I was under the impression that half of the city's restaurants would be a gourmet's heaven. Well, if such places exist, they are not easy to discover, at least not among regular restaurants. However, finding places like Klemuri is a pleasant surprise. The atmosphere is nice, the staff speaks... More

We came across this place after getting badly burnt by a tourist trap on our first night and it was fantastic! It really does deserve to be right up the top of the restaurants in Istanbul list - however I suspect that as it's in the Beyalou and most tourists stay in Sultanahmed that's probably why. Our food was excellent,... More

Love this place. Amazing food that really is something above the other local establishments. We went here again after disappointments in the area. Love the menu but the seating is simple.

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
