I was with a group of six colleagues who ate at Sekizistanbul last night. The restaurant is located on one of the side streets off Istiklal Street near Taksim square. The place has lovely ambiance and very helpful staff. The menu was quite varied and we had good appetizers and main dishes in what I might call a more modern Turkish cuisine. What I want to highlight is how helpful the chef was. One of our colleagues has severe food allergies and needed to ask for some accommodation. The chef came out and talked to her and made sure that she got what she needed. He also checked on us after serving the dinner. All of us finished every morsel of food and were happy with the dishes we ordered. With two bottles of very nice Turkish white wine, appetizers and main courses, only a couple of desserts, the bill was reasonable at about $45 per person. I hope you enjoy this restaurant when traveling in Istanbul.
