The shuttle bus picked us up in front of the hotel, and we enjoyed the ride to Taksim as many other tourists were picked along the way, up and down the Sultanahment narrow streets, which was real fun. The show was interesting, and the atmosphere was very cheerful. The food could have been better, but the show is worth the... More

If you want to enjoy a great Belly dance show, go to Sultana's nights. The best belly turkish dancer "Didem" will make your night memorable. Highly recommended.

Poor quality dance show, with mediocre overpriced food and indifferent waitress service. Probably the worst night out I have had in Istanbul - go almost anywhere else. There are lots of great places nearby, just choose at random it will probably be better.

If you could be more specific about your complaints about the food we'd be very happy because we had great compliments on the food on the same night. More

My birthday fell on during my stay in Istanbul. I really wanted to do something special, so I decided to go see a belly dancing. I found someone to be accompanied with me, who I just met at a conference, and decided to go with her to the show. However, she didn't show up at the meeting point even after... More

I had made my reservation with Sultana's through thier online website. I have to admit that at first my only reason was to watch Didem.I requested to be seated at the front row. Their online customer service was prompt and kept their word by seating me as requested. They provided a free pick up service from my hotel, and they... More

As a bellydancer living in Istanbul, I have been to most of the bellydance shows of Istanbul and I took an American dancer to Sultana's in July so she could see Didem, one of Turkey's most famous bellydancers. The quality of the dancing, overall show, food and service makes Sultanas as one of my top picks for a "Turkish Night"... More

I was not expecting to witness such a wonderful show. I have seen several oriental shows and Belly dancing. Most i rated as volgur and ugly. In Sultanas, i witnessed a great show, total delight and clean that can be watched with whole family. It was choreographed, danced to the tune with right movements and some flexibility displayed with aerobatic... More

We went here for New years eve and paid about 100 Euros per person. It was a little over priced and the food was less. it did include alcohol but even then was a little over priced. The tables were cramped together but the show itself was good.

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
Sisli
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.
