The food was good and the service was excellent. We only see Belly dancers on Movies and on TV. It was much better to have seen the whole show live!! The dancers was very professional and the movement was very gracefully rendered. Every body was quite at times and was very much focus on the dancers. The folk dancers was very entertaining to watch.

My 18 year old son and I had a delightful evening. There was a mix of traditional folk dancing from a variety of ethnic groups as well as a stand up comedian at the end of the evening. The entertainment was tasteful and engaging for both teenagers and adults.
The food was not as creative as some smaller restaurants in Istanbul but was tasty and of adequate quality.
The most satisfying aspect of our evening was our waiter who gave extensive attention to me an my son and made us feel that we were having dinner at a relatives house rather than at a mass dinner for cruise ship travelers. I should note that while I was initially concerned about Viator reviews saying that "small groups were put in the back of the room" when we arrived at the restaurant we were planed no more than 8 - 10 feet from the stage. In summary we beleive that it was a fun night out.

Great show, food was very good. It was great to hear the guy sing songs in so many different languages, flags was on table as to what country you were from and he would said a song from they and the table would join in.

The price for this dinner was excellent. The entertainment was very good. Although in some respect I think it is very cheesie I have to admit the dinner was very good as well as the service. This is a good way to experience something of Istanbul if you do not have a lot of time in this wonderful city.

I thought the show was interesting. The performers were talented. Everyone there seemed to be enjoying themselves. I know I did and I was sitting in the back.
