My friends and I enjoyed the show so much that we can't wait to go back to Istanbul and attend this place again! The performers were really impressive - they interact with the audience and make it part of the show. We also had the chance to taste very delicious traditional Turkish dishes. Unforgettable experience!

Good food, nice show. Nothing outstanding. The food needs improvements, the show is not outstanding.

Well, after reading reviews prior to arriving in Istanbul I had low expectations and I was not disappointed. The place was maybe 10% full, which says more about the current economic climate related to Tourism than about the place. The event is a wild mix of corny folklore dance performances, some unexciting belly dancing, pretty mediocre food - right up... More

Nice place to spend an evening, Food is okay but that's not what you are there for. The show is good and the they make an effort to make you a part of the show.

Massive amount of food and decent quality. The floor show is great fun . Some serious dancing and a comedy dance. There is dancing for the audience after the show.

The Sultana dinner and show was recommended to us by the host guy at our hotel. He said is was 35 euros per person (that was also the price on the brochure) and we agreed to go there for our last night in Istanbul. There was a minibus that picked us up at the hotel and also brought us back.... More

The table we booked was not on the listing when we arrived. The starter provided was the best meal of the evening - cold meze. The second course was supposed to be hot. Well, it was cold. Have you ever eaten cold fries and cold wrap? The salad was horrible, not a drop of dressing just raw red cabbage, carrot,... More

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
