After spending much of our time eating at overpriced places that didn't really blow us away, we came across Meat House on our last day in Istanbul. Meat House is a smaller restaurant that is off the main streets but a short walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. They were very friendly, and will not tout you on... More

The Meat House was the perfect place to have a casual family dinner. Our dinner was a delicious Turkish style meal. The prices were reasonable for a low key dinner. The waiter was very friendly and kind. The atmosphere was great. It is a small little tucked away restaurant near the Blue Mosque. If you are going on vacation in... More

After visiting the Blue Mosque you should find your way to The Meat House. After you run the gamut of carpet dealers you can find this wonderful restaurant. I started with the stuffed Grape Leaves and found the texture just a bit soft but the flavor was very good. My main course was Kofti Kebab - spicy lamb. The fresh... More

We ate here three times during our stay. The menu choice is a bit limited but the food is excellent, and the service is top notch. The chap who seems to be the boss or the owner is so friendly, and always thanked us for our custom. On our second visit he said tea and coffee were on the house... More

The food here was delicious. Our server highly recommended the chicken shish and it was very tasty. The staff was very polite and welcoming and prices were reasonable. I would definitely recommend.

We've had more than one fantastic meal at the Meat House Restaurant while staying in Istanbul. The service was fantastic, as was the food. I would definitely recommend all of the mezes but we particularly enjoyed the eggplant and the mixed grill main for all. Pleasant atmosphere and serene location.

Don't be put off by the name - there's meat aplenty but vegetarians are catered for. The food here is simple but delicious - it's tremendous value too, made even more so by the coffee offered for free as a thank you for our custom. Service is prompt, unobtrusive and so charming that it makes you want to be sure... More

This was one of our favourite meals - in a holiday of great meals. It was simple but very tasty and we recommend the vegetable kebab - a delicious assortment of grilled veg. The portions were generous, the waiters attentive but not overbearing and the meal was excellent value.

We were a big group of 16 (mostly high school students) and the staff quickly made accommodations. The food was delicious (meat pizza and spicy minced salad) and a great value.
