We went there with our children and they ended up dancing in the show! Our daughter after a short Belly Dancing introduction danced on the stage and did a very good job at it. Our son competed in the strength show with another 3 spectators and managed 2 nd place. An unforgettable family evening!

We were picked from our hotel and we boarded the cruise. The tables were laid out and we were assisted in seating. The tables had Salads plates and Bread baskets placed on the table. We were offered choices of juices and hard drinks as part of dinner package. The soup was served as the cruise started. The Turkish dances started... More

We loved the show, the food was not as expected. I think that the price is high for the quality of the food received. The restaurant need to be painted/rebumped

The show, though very touristy at times, was actually a lot of fun and some of the dancers were very impressive. The food, however, was very average and bland. The house wine on offer was not good at all so I would either drink beer or order wine by the bottle instead.

I was in this place with my wife and another couple. The place is nice, price in the media, i think. The show is the attactive of the restaurant, nothing else. Food is under the media. They spend the budget for the show, i think! Sure that i reccomend for the daily show, but i'm sorry, not for the dinner.... More

The entire experience of Sultana's was terrific! Beginning with the ease of making reservations and they picked us up in a private van. When we arrived there was a great table facing the stage and the choice of entree's was very large. We had more food then expected and the wine served was very good. The entertainment was fun and...

This was great value for money and a great night's entertainment if you're looking for something to do for night in Istanbul. The price of Euro 85 included pick-up from the hotel, dinner, free drinks and the entertainment - really cheap, especially with drinks included!

As a tourist, you should go. Meal was fine. You get 3 courses and dessert. The show was very good. Cultural dancing and some fun skits. And of course the belly dancing! And hotel pickup and drop off. All in all, well worth it!

Terrible food, all went back untouched - show was ridiculous and the puppets were inappropriate and disgusting. Dancers were very unhappy and sad looking and looked very bored and were annoyed that we were watching them..entering the place was scary and shady as you went down 2 flights of who knows what. place underground and dingy and smelly and moldy....

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.
