“Tourist Show”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This is a place designed specifically for tourists. The highlight was watching the horse show. What these men can do on horses is quite remarkable.
The food was just so-so. I find many of these experiences disheartening as it almost seems like tourists are exploiting the natives of the country.

“Thought It Would be Commercial and It Was!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The food was ordinary. The inside entertainment was some dancing and music which was presented by a group of locals that had limited talent. The outside show was so commericialized we left the show.

“Bizzare!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Very, very odd night! Food was ok, but entertainment was bizzare! Men on horseback racing down the field to only to stop and shoot a gun, entertainers walking round the field then walking off, not sure what the point was!!

“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

It was a good night, but i'm a vegetarian and had chicken brought to me for my vegetarian meal. I had a bit of bread and plain cous cous for my meal that ended up being quite expensive. No drinks were added on to the evening until the end which were expensive.
