Great lahmacun in the traditional atmosphere of an old Turkish House.

My Turkish friend Koray took me to this nice place in Fatih on Sunday Feb. 8, 2015. First I tried to invite him to Tatbak Lokantasi in Nishantashi, but when we came there in the morning it was closed. So, we had to take a metro and finally set up in Ziya Shark Sofrasi 1982.

Ask to see the tray with all the appetizer dips- the waiter will explain all the ingredients. Choose two or three to try with their really tasty fresh made breads.

We went there on our way to the IslamTechnic Museum. We just sat as we got water. The menue came fast. I iordered a köfte plate. Other people ( non. Tourist) came later and got their food earlier. My tea only came as I re-ordered it. The food was ok, tasty but too small for the money.

We had lunch there. Just after we sat, the waiter poured water for all of us (4) before we could discover how much they charge for a large bottle. And I don't think the bottle was sealed before the water was poured. My lunch was practically tasteless and I was shocked to see that we were charged 12 lira for... More

We rate this restaurant highly. We have here only one dinner because we want to test other ones. But this dinner was fantastic. From the traditional Turkish pancakes to the lamb shish kebab - soooooo good. The fried fish also was picant. They served different Mezes - traditional starters. Also we highly reccomend you lochmadjun - traditional turkish pizza.

We stopped at this restaurant for a light meal due to its proximity to attractions and the "tripadvisor" and "lonely planet" stickers that were ostentatiously displayed on their window. However, the food and customer service were disappointing and overpriced. A young couple at a neighboring table were disputing the charges on their bill -- 15% service charge and charges for...

We selected many different dishes from the menu over a number of days as the restaurant is in the hub of a number of historical sites, and the food was consistently excellent. The salads are particularly good and very well presented (a salad with pomegranate and walnut is outstanding). The Turkish "pizza" served hot is a bargain and the pittas... More

We sat outside and enjoyed fast friendly service. The food was good and also timely. Location is also very nice as it is near many of the attractions in Sultanahmet.
