This was my first cabaret however not entirely what I expected. The sound system was poor quality and therefore often difficult to understand what was being said. Some of the dancers were stunning, others less so. However the evening was fun although a little cheesy and overall I'm glad I went if only for the experience. The location of the... More

The cabaret is located at Asiatique which is a great place to dine before hand. The theatre itself was a nice venue, we paid 900bt for a ticket and i'm afraid it definitely wasn't worth it. The miming was terrible, the sound system was awful and I think there was only one song I had actually heard of. The seating... More

Not the worse cabaret show I have seen,but far far from the best. The lip syncing was horrible and without any feeling. You could see that the performers did not understand what they were lip syncing. Watching the Lady -Boys perform was different. The sound system was horrible, being cranked up all the way did not help the show. If... More

Having been to the show some 4 years ago I had great expectations of the New venue but unfortunately the show has gone down hill and was very disappointing. Terrible lip syncing for most of the show with only a few exceptions. Very expensive wouldn't recommend.

The sound system was horrible. The show was very bad. The transition of each show and the lip-sync ability of the performers were awful. Also, as I watched the Thai cabaret, I expected to see any beautiful cultural Thai show. Unfortunately, there were none of them. :-( The sparkling costume was probably the only thing that was okay. So, don't... More

we have seen the Calypso show in the old location, and this time we went to the new theater in the Asiatique area. The show was good, the sound a bit disappointing , but the cabaret was very professional. Ma great show with a lot of Beautiful dresses and decors. To be honest I like the old atmosphere more in...

look, if you've done every other thing to do in BKK, then why not check this show out. I wouldn't go back. Someone told me the prettier ladyboys work in Patthaya, not in BKK, so I guess we got the dregs.

We purchased the dinner and show tickets. The food was amazing as was the pre-show. The traditional dance and costumes were fantastic. The performance and lay boy dancers were very good, unfortunately the music was very outdated, only thing that let the show down really.

Do not come if you expect real singing. It is lipsync but it looks very professional. It is all about the fun, the colours, the dance and the ladyboys, so, again, do not expect some stunning art performance, just relax, enjoy your free drink and be stunned by the great looks and dance moves of some of the guys. They... More
