Feels authentic except for the tourists

The food was tasty, as was most Turkish food. The setting was pleasant. The dining area is fairly small, but we had reservations and got a lovely table. Dinner for four with ample wine was $99, so it is pretty reasonable.

We found this place after much struggle with directions as it was one of the Lonely Planet Istanbul's top 3 restaurants. We were left fairly unimpressed with the simple Turkish fare which I thought was not much different than anywhere else we had been. The place was full of tourists with the guidebook in hand. Unless you are a vegan... More

Based on other reviews here we decided to dine at Klemuri. The staff was very nice and friendly but unfortunately the food was a disappointment. Dishes were a bit small, seasoning very light (not enough taste) and the lack of wine glasses with good local wine was a turn-off. Our fish was raw but of course we got a new... More

We found this charming restaurant via our Lonely Planet pocket guide, and weren't disappointed. The people who run it are very friendly and courteous, and not intrusive. Even though it was a Friday night we were able to enjoy a leisurely meal over the course of at least 90 minutes. The wine list offered a reasonable selection, well described. The... More

The place is next to Taxim and is a bit hard to find - Google Maps will navigate you to the building, but the entrance is on the other side of the building. If it was not for a small sign on the window we would not find it, probably. There are very few tables in the restaurant and it... More

We found this restaurant in Lonely Planet, and came for dinner on our first night in Istanbul. It was quite nice, with a short but very tasty menu and a quiet, pleasant atmosphere. A great place to come if you are staying in the Taksim area.

This is a nice quiet restaurant. The service is very polite and courteous. The food is generally very healthy. A lot of yoghurt on most meals and not very fatty. My main problem was that I did not find the food very tasty. The yoghurt sometimes clashed with the taste of the food substantially. There was hardly any meat used... More

I love this restaurant. The menu may be simple, but it's good. Their plates are filling, fresh, and tasty. The servers are friendly. The place is small, intimate, cozy. It's not extra fancy nor too plain nor garish - it's just the right amount of comfortable. The prices are affordable, too, and the location is great - on a quiet... More

Very clean, cozy and simple restaurant. Delightful service, pleasant music. Food was brought fast, and was quite nice. Don't try the dessert "Crispy Pumpkin," go for something else.
