The Orient House offers a dinner and show experience in Istanbul. Very touristy! It is immediately adjacent to the President Hotel, which we stayed in, so we gave it a try. Most of the clientele are bussed in from various hotels and tour groups so seating is reserved accordingly. As we were only a party of two, we were seated behind a giant mirrored pillar which virtually obstructed the entire show. Be aware, if they try to seat you side stage behind the pillar, demand a new table or just leave as the meal alone is not worth the price. In fact the meal is not good. If you want a dining experience, try elsewhere. The musicians are a somber lot who could not/would not smile or enjoy their performance in any way. The belly dancers are the stars of the show and are very talented. Each table is outfitted with a flag from your country of origin which was kind of interesting as the host greeted each country. All in all a very disappointing experience.
