Located near Taksim square, the place has a homely atmosphere that creates a welcoming feeling and is packed with a mix of tourists and local youth. The service is simple, efficient and done with a smile. The food itself is nothing to write home about but tasty. The menu is indeed a good alternative to grilled meat dishes that can be found almost everywhere else. Prices are a bit on the high side but nothing outrageous.

We ordered chicken and sea bass. The fish was half a portion, unfrozen and not grilled. Staff was not friendly and not helpful. We had a wine. Expensive as it is in Istanbul, but very tasteful and drinkable. The waitress was completely uninterested and the atmosphere was dull.

I'm born and raised in Istanbul and ı like trying new restaurants all the time. Klemuri is my last discovery and I'm proud!!!! The food is delicious and stuff is always friendly and helpfull. I tried almost very food on menu and all of them is prepared just perfectly:) My favourite dishes are their salads and black sea foods. Once you taste one, you keep coming to the restaurant to try new dishes. The atmosphere is also nice, always full of interesting people and has a very authentic decoration. You can ask about anything and they will explain to you:) It's located in Istiklal Caddesi and perfect place to dine before you begin pub crawl!:) I strongly recommend it!

Located on a sidestreet of Istiklal Caddesi. Food is authentic for sure and a nice getaway from all the kebaps. Still, however authentic, finding a plastic wrapping from the watercress butter on your plate is something unpleasant. The waiter hardly responded to it, although we just pointed it out. It's something that can be forgotten, nobody's perfect... but at least try to react to it in an appropriate way. Don't blame it on a language barriere, we were in a company with native Turkish speaker. Overall service was kinda cheerless, actually much like in a lot of European vegetarian restaurants.

Very authentic rustic Turkish / Georgian menu. The food was excellently cooked and the service excellent. The dishes came with huge amounts of yoghurt and relatively small amount of dumplings / meat etc. I'm sure this is how they are traditionally served but be prepared if you haven't had this cuisine before.

Service excellent and well priced. Nice to find somewhere truly Turkish in the area.
