What a nice place! Good food to start with, I had lentil soup followed by lamb shashlik. Good red wine at reasonable price. And very courteous people serving and cooking. Highly recommended.

Just got back from great casual, cheap and tasty dinner with the family. This is not haute cuisine but very good and well priced in a nice neighborhood around the corner from the Four Seasons. If you don't want to spend a ton and want good food and fast service this is the place for you. Would give it five... More

This is a small restaurant down a side street by the Blue Mosque and the local market. It is fabulous! Great authentic Turkish food very reasonably priced and great service. (And free wifi!) We had a wonderful lunch including drinks for under 40 TL! Loved the adona sis kabob! We will definitely go back before we leave!

I have been ten days in Turkey already and so far Meat House Restaurant has the best Adana Kebab I tried. A little bit more expensive than other places (nothing too bad) but really worth the try.

Waited an hour for chicken shish. At 45 minutes, we finally asked what happened to our order when we noticed other people who came in after us eating already. Finally, our order was brought out and announced as "I have a surprise for you!" -which was actually just our original order.

My husband and I are staying right above this restaurant and after a red-eye flight arriving this morning, we staggered into the Meat House for lunch. The food was fresh and delicious. As the huge portions were brought out, we made our gracious waiter smile with our wide eyes and giggles over having a full day's worth of food on... More

Situated in Old City. Though close to the tourist attraction with busy streets, you will findthis quiet place near by. Best meat in town? Have been there several times during my stays in Istanbul and no matter what you order, the food is excellent. Alway fresh always, with newly baked bread, Friendly atmosphere created by the owner and his staff.... More

Really friendly service, English skill just right. DO NOT MISS. Wish I had the recipes. Don't eat in your hotel if you are around oldtown, make a short... More

Located in the Sultanahmet. Area, this restaurant serves good, local food, without felling or being touristy. The menu has a nice selection of Turkish food prepared with fresh ingredients. The lentil soup was thick and delicious, the meat and chicken dishes were well prepared, and the baklava was delicious and less sweet than their Greek cousin., there is outdoor I... More
