Had no real intention to go from the tour program but peer pressure and why not ? Ended up having one of the best nights of the tour. OK it was cheesy, touristy and a bit overlong but all in all a real eye opener of several cultures of the region and the belly dancer had the best facial expressions... More

Great demonstrations of whirling dervishes and other Turkish dancing and music. Fantastic mezes. Let down by a main meal that was stone cold. Rather than pushing different courses, stick with the mezes.

We arrived just before the show started at 8:30. It went on for at least two hours and every act was different- a mix of traditional turkish dancing, belly dancing, drum beating and of course the famous whirling dervishes. We all enjoyed it and they made a real effort to engage with the crowd. The venue is a clever circular... More

This is one of the best local show venues in Cappadocia, carved into the rocks. Located outside of Uchisar town near Nevsehir city, they organize every night Turkish folk dances and belly dancing shows for mostly tourists. Besides that they also have the whirling dervish show at the beginning of the show, starting around 20:30. Then around 21:00 regular shows... More

Brilliant experience of Turkish culture and entertainment! The best belly-dancing yet! The whirling Dervishes are enthralling! The male solo entertainment was brilliant! A night of truly outstanding energy, entertainment and satisfaction! Well worth the $50 fee. This includes table snacks and unlimited hot, cold and alcoholic drinks! WOW!!!

I came to this restaurant not for eating, just to watch what they called Turkish Night. It costs USD 50. But I didn't enjoy the show. I just wanted to see the Sufi dance, and didn't really care about the other dances. During the folk dance and belly dance I was yawning all the time. The traditional dancers tried to... More

We went to this restaurant and show as part of our tour group travelling in Turkey. We enjoyed our food and loved the show. The dancers and staff encouraged the audience to participate in the dancing which was great fun. We then sat back and watched the belly dancers, twirling men and other traditional dancing. This was the only cultural... More

Just had wine there and saw a great show---local folk music, dancing; whirling dervishes, and Clara Sussekind a great belly dancer. Service was outstanding as well as the performances.
