We choose the buffet dinner option, so had a huge choice of average food with a few better dishes. It was in a large hall with about 200 other people at round tables and lacking in character, more of a canteen feel but OK. The show was fairly good, with a lot of acrobat style dances rather than pure music/dance.... More

This show was highly recommended to us and we were not disappointed. There was a large variety of songs, dances and story telling. The sets and costumes very beautiful.

I was skeptical about going to this show but was pleasantly surprised by the music and dance. Very colorful costumes and scenography. Arrived for the show, skipped dinner.

The show was fine. The dumplings were terrible. Worst things I ate in China. I think there were 18 different ones and I tried about 4. Really bad and I was so looking forward to them.

We went to the dinner show after a really long day of sight seeing. The music was very good. The musicians are very talented. The singers had very nice voices. The music and songs were very authentic to the Tang Dynasty. The play was really not my cup of tea but the performers all do an excellent job. You can... More

We just went for the show as we'd already eaten in the Muslim quarter which was lovely. Although the show was enjoyable upto a point (that we were supposedly seeing a traditional Tang Dynasty show), it was definitely easily forgettable! Nice staging with the costumes, colours and lighting but the performers lacked emotion. I struggled to stay awake throughout because... More

We attended the Tang Dynasty show and dumpling dinner on out recent visit to Xi'an. The dumpling dinner was fine. There were 16 different types of steamed dumplings to try. They are artfully prepared with generous portions. The show seemed to me more geared for the 60+ crowd. My teenage children were bored to tears after 15 minutes and my... More

The venue was awesome, a lunch buffet in a theatre where a Tang Dynasty show is performed in the evening. The entrance to the theatre/restaurant was very imposing , with a huge drum in the foyer. The buffet itself was very varied, from beef stew to sushi ! Authentic Chinese dishes were alternated with western andJapanese cuisine. There was a... More

The food was average to good Chinese food with ice cream offered at the end which was a nice touch before the show. The performances were stylized but good examples of the style on show. It was a good mix of light and humorous and then beautiful dances. Worth a visit if you have time time.

Food: Rubbery, dry and uninspiring dumplings. Rude service. Very overpriced beers (that you have to beg for). Performance: well rehearsed, but not suited to a western standard of good entertainment. If you're expecting to be blown away, best avoid. Lots of dancing in cheap (and stained) costumes. I can't complain too much as his was included on a tour. but... More
