An optional dumpling dinner is served at the theatre before the show. The food and decor is enjoyable, but average. However, the dinner music performed by a member of the cast is exceptional, a sample of things to come. The show opens with an ensemble number that is beautifully costumed, featuring many traditional instruments. It is both exotic and powerful!... More

The show was a good way to understand more about the cultural history of the area. I think the food was not the best and the show was occasionally a bit repetitive, but we were glad we had the opportunity to learn more about Chinese culture. Some of the dancing was amazing--glad we saw it.

After a day out at the Terracotta Warriors we were taken to this evening show in a theatre come restaurant. The meal comprised 15 courses of dumplings of every variety which was a pleasurable, if not gastronomic experience. The show was a very colourful event with what was described as traditional dancing and music. A pleasant evening event to round... More

We only attended the show and did not eat at the restaurant. The show was good, but not spectacular. It was interesting from a historical standpoint, but seemed a little over-the-top at times. At times could be very loud, more than needed. I've seen reviews where it was all western tourists that attended, but the night we were there the... More

We skipped dinner and just went for the show. Our tablemates told us that we made a wise decision. The show was entertaining and the music portions were very nice. The show was English-friendly and most of it was quite lively. We had a good time. It was packed to walls with tourists (it looked like mainly Aussies of retirement... More

(This review covers the performance only; we did not choose either dinner option, as the price seemed high compared to some of the excellent  nearby restaurants.)   We had high expectations for this performance, given its consistently high ratings on various travel sites.  Unfortunately, our expectations didn't come close to being met.    The show is a composite of several...
