I was really excited I've found a place where vegetarians could taste türkisch food. I was but disapointed, and very! As main course there was only 1 option which actually was a kind of soup, hot Ayran with approx. 5 peas. For people which eat fish or meat could be interesting as they present the dishes in a different way... More

Food was good, but not exceptional. The atmosphere is nice and so is the staff. However, they don´t speak English very well. I would recommend going there.

I visited KLEMURI after consulting tripadvisor (best nearby) in Taksim. Ι was happily surprised to see something different after having kebabs for 3 days. Small and elegant menu, fresh and authentic flavors at a really good price. The environment is friendly and nostalgic.

After the great reviews I read, we tried this place on our first night. Yes the place had a certain charm and the staff were friendly, and the price reasonable, but unfortunately the food was nothing special. I was disappointed as really looking forward to trying the food. Maybe it was just my taste buds that day.

Klemuri is tucked away in the back stalls of Taksim but well worth the search. The atmosphere is very relaxed and it's adorned with a lovely decor. I loved to unique wine glasses (wine was wonderful too) and the food was amazing. It's popularity speaks for itself, a small venue which was full almost the whole time we were there... More

Had high hopes, but it was very poor. Food that a child could prepare, bland, nothing you would want to eat again. Maybe the chef was off and a waiter was cooking? Nice room, inexpensive, but a real let down after extensive research on supposed "new" Istanbul cuisine.

I went to Klemuri after reading reviews here and the whole experience was great. It's very difficult to choose between all the restaurants in the area, specially if you're looking for a quiet place. Klemuri is a small place, warm and quiet, the food, as a plus, is excellent. Everything goes smoothly and calm there.
