Meyhouse is a upscale Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant. The quality of food is really high that even your visitors from Istanbul might get impressed.

This is a food you cannot find anywhere. The food is not only delicious but also so different from any other traditional Middle East cuisine. They have special menu every day but you could still order from their main menu at lunch and dinner. A person who is coming from that part of the world i would say the desserts called “kunefe and sutlac” are the best so far i have eaten in the US. Must try!!!

Authenic Turkish cuisine, exceptionally good Kebobs (and I mean it - I think I tried every Kebob place in 50 mile vicinity), great service, ambiance. Will definitely be back for business lunch and family dinner

Amazing food. The bread was excellent (I mean some of the best I've tasted) as was everything else.... The pasta (Manti) was absolutely amazing! This was a memorable dinner and that sets it apart from most other restaurants... The flavors and preparations were unique, and it was refreshing to finally have something really different!

My new favorite on Murphy street, just as good as the venerable DishDash. A bustling atmosphere, vibrant middle eastern flavors, and friendly service makes for a complete package. Everything we’ve had has been excellent, can’t wait to comeback.

Fantastic food, definitely reminding me of home. I highly recommend you to try their appetizers. Though a bit pricey and small in portions, you will never go wrong with your choice. It's been a very good evening for our party.

The food is amazing. Period. There is not a single dish that I didn't enjoy. The service decently in terms of timing. Staff is friendly. If you are into Turkish cuisine, there is hardly a place that can match what you get from Meyhouse. The only downside is that it is a little bit pricey. But given the time it takes to cook these dishes, it's fair.

Meyhouse is currently the best Turkish restaurant in SF Bay Area. The menu includes an extensive selection of dishes from various regions of Turkey. Seafood dishes are excellent, especially Levrek (A smaller Mediterranean variant of Sea Bass.) There is also a good variety of mezes and vegetable dishes. Muhammara (a delicious paste made with red pepper, walnut and pomegranate) and patrician ezme (fire roasted eggplant with garlic, lemon juice and olive oil) are excellent pairings with the house baked bread.
They even make their own pastirma (Turkish version of prosciutto) in house which tastes heavenly.

Really good food, but the service just wasn't there add the place was not that busy, for which we'd otherwise understand. The drinks were left empty for too long, food service left unfulfilled (missing parts of our order). I'd return but hopefully this gets their attention to address their service issues.

If you are interested to have real Turkish food - this is it. It does not get much better than this. Go have some amazing appetizers, drink some Raki, wonder how you will fit in the exquisite main and then be surprised that you were able to eat the desert on top!
Wonderful people, amazing food - finally a Turkish restaurant that we can actually recommend!

A great place to experience unique delicious food. The staff is very helpful in explaining each dish. We went with a group of five and ordered the meat and fish special dinners of many different dishes. An excellent way to taste many different dishes in one evening. Servings are generous as are the wine pours.

Mey House imbues with Turkish delight (food perfection not the candy). I met Revnak, one of the owners, who explained daily dinner specials and the many Turkey region offerings. Conveniently most of the dishes had regions noted in parentheses. Two cold mezes - beets drizzled in olive oil and ground pistachio, kopoglu fried eggplant in tomato/garlic yogurt sauce - dipped sauces with baked pides (similar to airy flat bread). Red lentil soup texture was light and flavored with mint/olive oil. Incik - lamb shank with mint, sour cherry, on top of roasted eggplant puree that had delicate, airy flavors to complement the roasted/baked lamb. Ended with turkish coffee and kunefe dessert - shredded wheat filled goat cheese with plenty of ground pistachio and sugary syrup. View of fresh wood-burning oven and its continuous use for patrons dinners added to the mystic of Turkey. Must go to experience Turkish culinary perfection in Sunnyvale!

This restaurant reminds us the food we had in Istanbul. The Mezes, the hot bread, delicious! The main course meat is tender and flavorful! The hostess was very friendly, explain the Today's menu, even took a group picture for us. Overall, this is the best food we had for a long time. Will for sure coming back, and bring our friends!

Our party of 7 thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Meyhouse. The wait staff was pleasant, informative, fun, enthusiastic and helpful in answering our questions. Our food (muhammara and borek for appetizers; mousakka, manti, kofte, and kusleme for entrees) was delicious and just as some of us had enjoyed in Turkey. Definitely a "return to" place.

This is a fantastic place. Truly authentic Turkish cuisine that would rival the best restaurants in Turkey easily (yes, I’m Turkish and a foodie). Everything is home made with love and diligence. The ingredients are of superb quality. No filler sides. Just pure goodness and taste. Expensive, but well worth it. I’ll be a regular for sure. Extremely highly recommended.

This weekend we went to Meyhouse with a large party. Although I felt the food was good, the value was just not there. Some more feedback;

The Good: As I mentioned, the food quality was very good. It was clear that they made their food fresh and took care in the quality of the food.

The Bad: The Services was meh...The place was noisy. Was crowded, which is good for them, but was hard to hear. Additionally, they had a pizza type oven next to the customer area. It heated up the entire restaurant and made it very uncomfortable. And frankly, i didnt even see them cooking anything in it. So i have no idea whats they use it for.

Additionally, and not trying to "nit-pick" but we ordered a diet coke. If your trying to be an "upscale restaurant" and charge a premium, dont bring me a can. Bring it in a glass and offer refills. Dont be that cheap.

The UGLY: The portions were very small. And we were very disappointed in the accessories to the meals. The main courses didnt really come with anything. Not even rice! How expensive is RICE?! They charged us $6 for rice!! Thats just insane.

The Adana Kebab came with 1 skewer. For $32 I'd expect at least 2 skewers and rice. Its ridiculous that they charge that much for just 1 skewer. Especially for a dinner portion.

Additionally, the "small plates" were all over $10. Even @ Oren's Hummus, you can get the same type of dishes for $6. They should have some tasting platter for $15 with a few options and all other dishes should be no more than $8. Its a "small plate" FFS, dont charge over $10 thats crazy.

Overall, again the food was good and fresh. But between the relatively poor service and insane pricing, we're not going to go back. I wish this restaurant the best as its new. Hopefully they read this and take this feedback to heart.

In the meantime, highly suggest you goto Dish Dash right down the road. Good food for a good price.

Meyhouse is a very very special restaurant. They bring the very best of Turkish food to the Bay Area! Their food is not only absolutely delicious but also extremely sophisticated and authentic. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to have this dining experience so far from Turkey. Regardless of whether you are familiar with Mediterranean/Turkish/Middle Eastern food or not, you will be blown away by Meyhouse.
