Food was delicious. Chicken with special sauce, black mushroom consomme, King prawns with honey glazed hazelnuts, beef tenderloin with rice and vegetables, orange whip gelatin, dessert dim sum and jasmine tea. One couple had an anniversary so we also had a delicious cake.

We were in a tour group and attended the Tang Dynasty Dinner and show. The first performance on stage was players playing on instruments that were no longer in use which was most interesting. In between and while some performances were on stage we were served a five course banquet . We had chicken fillet, black mushroom consomme, prawns ,... More

We had a buffet lunch in the auditorium of this theatre. The setting was quite unusual, but the food was really delicious with lots of choice. The noodles were especially good.

This is a excellent place to eat and the show is second to none, the colors and spectacle of China is depicted in dance and song, acrobatic stunts are just a marvel, the food is wonderful, although a fixed menu i could not have chosen better.

As part of our tour we enjoyed a lovely lunch at this restaurant and therefore I am unable to comment on the price. The food was delicious and because we had our lunch early there was only one other group of people in the restaurant. There was a good variety of food. I really enjoyed all the dishes that I...

Sure, this adds a traditional Chinese song and dance show to dinner. That incorporates another element into your visit to Xi'an. I thought the food was utterly mediocre at best. I'd much rather be at a restaurant where I can decide what to order. The pre-fixed meals are nicely served in courses by servers that are in an obvious hurry... More

What a wonderful evening, a highlight of our time in China. The performance was interesting, colourful and delightful. Live musicians, singers and dancers. I loved every minute. The food was the best meal we had during our China trip, Artistically served and it tasted as good as it looked. The service was good and the food plentiful. I would recommend... More

Posh theatre lunchtime visit. Home made noodles, made as you queue, queue being the operative word, lengthy and slow. The noodles are delicious. And you can also do the eat all you like buffet, but the choice is fairly limited. I had good black bean chicken but the curry was rubbish and most everything else cold.

When I visited Xi’an I ate my last lunch in that city at “The Tang Dynasty” restaurant. I was pretty surprised about the service and the quality. Unfortunately, I am not able to say something about the price since it was included in the booked tour. Only remarkable was that the tea was free, which was often not the case... More
