It is very clear that guides get a commission on every unfortunate tourist taken there. The food is terrible, the service too. The show is not as bad as the rest of the experience but I just couldn't suffer the food (and believe me: I am not picky about food).

A very nice show. And the dinner of dumplings was quite good. We were a group of two, and got sat with other couples, but was still very enjoyable.

Dinner and show runs from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. Cost is currently 338 rmb per person ($55 Cdn). Like many tourist attractions in Xi'an, the price of the show and dinner increased in May 2012. We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner which consists of: cold appetizers (safe to eat), an seemingly endless procession of dumpling dishes and a hot pot at... More

This was a pleasant way to see and cultural show and have a meal as well. The outing was part of the tour and I am glad it was as we thoroughly enjoyed it. The dance troupe were just amazing. There are 2 levels of meal/show deal. We had the dinner and show, 500 yan, but you can just do... More

The comnbined dumpling/dinner and music/dance show was probably the best entertainment we have had in a long time. There are various combinations of meals/show but we liked the dumplings. Ver professional and not expensive. Discounts are available through hotels and agents.

It's almost like a Las Vegas setting with rows of tables, with food being served. The food was good, nothing spectacular...I've had worse in Vegas. Good English introduction and commentary, so you could figure out the music and dance. They used insturments that all almost forgotten and so are more interesting, but they we're not designed to be amplified electronically.... More

There are several Tang Dynasty Shows in Xi’an and this is about the one at Shaanxi Grand Opera House at No 161 Wenyi Road. I went for the combined Dumpling Banquet and Show ticket even if you can go for the show only if you like. The dumpling dinner takes you through about 18 different types of dumpling. You’ll fist...

We ate here as we were recommended the dumplings. They do not look nearly as good as the photos you may have seen and were OK but as a set menu it is expensive and excessive. You have to book in advance and they are very inflexible if your number or wishes change so beware. You can have other dishes... More
