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

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.
