Yirmisekizzade Mehmed Said Paşa (died October 1761), also Sahid Mehemet Effendi or Mehmed Said Efendi, was a Georgian Ottoman statesman. He was Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire from October 25, 1755 to April 1, 1756.
He was a son of Yirmisekiz Mehmed Çelebi, ambassador of the Ottoman Empire to France in 1720-1721. He already accompanied his father during this first mission in France in 1720-1721 as his personal secretary. He is said to have enjoyed the French culture and lifestyle tremendously, and ended up speaking French fluently.
Sahid Mehemet Effendi was himself dispatched for an embassy in Paris in 1742, as well as another more historically significant one in Sweden in 1733 and Poland, which led to his writing a sefaretname. In Sweden, he succeeded Mustapha Aga as ambassador.
