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.

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
